    LAKȞÓTIYA WÓGLAKA PO! - SPEAK LAKOTA! LEVELS 1-4 PACKAGE

    Posted by Pamela Brenza on Jul 1st 2020

    I wish the books matched up with the CD's better. It is difficult (at best) to follow which page(s) on the book coincide with the CD. It is difficult to follow along at times.. Otherwise, it is a great series.

    great product

    I am an adult student and I am learning on my own at the moment. I like the books very much, they are simple and easy to follow.
    Thr cds are very important because the pronunciation is quite complex.
    I will have to add the grammar book soon because as an adult I need to understand the structure of the language as well.
    Thanks you for putting on the marked this important book.

    Great purchase

    I've always wanted to learn my language. I work all day but I am able to listen to the cds on my iPod in the morning. I still don't know all what is being said but the repetition of hearing it spoken daily is helping immensely. 5 solid years of listening and learning will pay off. Some day I will teach my grandchildren how to speak Lakota. Thank you to all the great people who made these learning tools.

    I'm really enjoying the textbooks and looking forward to learning all I can from them. It's set up so a child can learn and it makes adult self study even easier.
