Pigiarvik - Inuktitut Second language 1 - Igloolik


Pigiarvik means a ‘starting place’. The course introduces students to Inuktitut pronunciation and grammar while enabling them to build basic skills including:

  • introductions;
  • asking and answering simple questions;
  • using the singular, dual and plural properly; and
  • beginner language for various situations in the home and workplace.

A dialogue in each lesson demonstrates to students how Inuktitut is spoken in daily life and develops their listening skills. Students also receive instruction on reading and writing in roman orthography.
