Why are you learning Navajo?
What are your reasons and motivations?
Because I want to teach it through technology. I hope to save my culture and traditions. I wasn't fortunate enough to be fluent due to intergenerational trauma, but both my grandparents still speak it and they taught me what it means to be a Diné.
I've spent a lot of time in the south west and fell in love with the land. I was hoping to give something back to the area and it's people when I move there. I hope they improve the lessons because right now it's difficult to have any sense of phonology.
I love to learn languages and I plan to preserve native american culture by some means, if I succeed to learn at least one of the languages of Native America, it will be an item crossed from my bucket list.
To help preserve a minority language. The more people that learn it, the more it will be protected, enriched and valued by society at large.
Just have an interest because it is so different than other languages I know. I don’t expect to get at all proficient and would have nobody to converse with me. Hoping this could be a good tool for schools and groups wishing to help Navaho youth and adults gain or retain their language.
Because I like to learn languages and I have always been interested in Native Americans.
I just saw an opportunity to learn a difficult language and jumped on it. I would love to see this language expanded. It's definitely interesting. I'm planning on jumping back to it periodically after the team working on it can fix some errors.
Yá'át'ééh, it is because I had the idea of studying almost every language on Duolingo.
I know some Blackfoot words and so I decided to learn a different Native American language. I know some Native American children and I think this would make me feel more connected to them
Because we're on their land, it's a beautiful language, besides it's pretty endangered.
