For those with little or no background in the Inuit Language, Pirurvik offers a series of 30 hour courses intended to bring a student from beginner to intermediate level Inuktitut. We meet you where you are at.
All instruction is gently provided through Inuktitut immersion. Our student handbooks and workbooks provide grammar explanations in English. Our teachers create extensive opportunities to practice our language skills, continually building on learning basic structures.
Inuktitut Foundation 3: Atangiivik
At this level in the Inuktitut foundations program, students complete their introduction to the fundamentals of Inuktitut grammar. It is also the time to transition to using syllabics for both reading and writing.
Students attain the ability to use Inuktitut with more complexity and to talk at a more advanced level, about topics such as travel plans, daily routines and their likes and dislikes.
Our teachers encourage the exploration of student’s interest at work and at home, so that Inuktitut is used daily in reading, writing and thinking.
Schedule: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 1:15pm to 3:15pm
