Lakota Audio Series: A Practical Conversation Course, Volume 1 eBook has 131 lessons for hours of language study that meets the highest standards for independent language learning. When used in conjunction with the Lakota Audio Series: A Practical Conversation Course, Volume 1 CD set, this eBook allows a more complete and thorough understanding of the course. Whether used with the CDs or by itself, this eBook lets you bookmark lessons, skip around through the units, and work across several devices. The lessons take you through important beginner-level work based on how the Lakota language is really used. Actions and verbs become your focus, as the Lakota language is based on movement and relationship, instead of “things” as in English. This reorientation and practice of subtly changing the spoken verb will instruct you in how to be an effective speaker.
Lessons include: Yes/no questions · Greetings and kinship · Vocabulary for household situations · Demonstrative pronouns (this, these, that) · 1st, 2nd, & 3rd person verb forms (I, you, they) · Changes to verb endings (ablaut) · Voicing unique Lakota sounds (nasal, aspirated).
Lakota Audio Series: A Practical Conversation Course, Volume 1 eBook immerses you in Lakota in a way that creates a deep intuitive grasp of the language and establishes a strong base for fluency.
