Program Overview:

The program is designed to develop practical language competencies that will support language learning in a Kindergarten to Grade 12 setting, Early Years or in Community-based programs by helping people to read, write and speak Anishinaabemowin using the double vowel writing system. It will be useful for non-speakers, intermediate and fluent speakers looking for job market skills to work as an educational assistant, Culture and Language Supports Worker or those looking to support language learning. It is also useful for people working within social services, the medical fields, legal and media career sectors where speaking Anishinaabemowin will be an asset. Certified Manitoba teachers may want to take this program to support language revitalization in the classroom. There are 13 courses and two workplace practicums.
