Gauging Interest

February 27, 2021

I would like to know if anyone would like a language learning plan or roadmap for those wanting to learn Navajo. This would be a simple list of things to tackle in a fluid order to help you to continue to progress in your studying. I get into a rut unless I have some structure when I’m learning a language. Would this be helpful to anyone?

Also, I have been toying with this idea of creating a digital textbook. Free to the public, of course. I think there are enough public domain resources to revamp and have a textbook-like resource for everyone. I’m thinking it could have audio embedded in it, listening exercises, etc. If there is enough interest we could start getting some people together to create such a resource. Please make a comment below to let me know if you would be interested in being part of such a project.

If you are a Navajo speaker that is interested in doing something sooner than later, I have a separate idea for you that could be very helpful to this community. Comment below if that is you.

I’ve been around more Navajos lately and this language topic of learning, speaking and the difficulty of finding people to practice with is something I hear about almost everyday. It’s time for something, something new maybe. I am not sure entirely what, but I have ideas.

    I would be very interested. I did purchase the Rosetta Stone Navajo learning program, but it remains a difficult task for me. All help appreciated!

    These are awesome ideas! Personally, I could use a refresher in speaking Navaho since I am off the Rez and don’t have anyone to practice with. Ahéhee’

    I am interested in getting the word of the day and also I would like to learn the Navajo language. How do I get on the mailing list to receive info and all that? Please reply.

      You can sign up for emailed updates for NavajoNow.com on the front page. I’ll always let people know what is new and helpful. There are other sites and social media accounts that have Navajo Words of the Day, I would do a general search on each media platform you have. YouTube has Daybreakwarrior, there was a Twitter feed NavajoWOTD, it looks like Facebook has a group page.
