The issue with the Navajo course.

So, I am very interested in Native American Languages and I really want to learn Navajo but with the Duolingo course which has no audio support, it's very hard to know if I am saying a word correctly. This is very discouraging for me especially because I want to speak the language not just read it (as many probably do). Please if you have any suggestion for me I'd like to hear it.

I have subscribed to daybreakwarrior on youtube. He has videos about culture, word-of-the-day videos, and short lessons. It does not perfectly line up will what Duo teaches but I am finding it helpful to learn pronunciation.

    I’d have to agree on that statement. I worry that I’m saying words wrong. I just started the Navajo course and I remember going to the Navajo Nation and text being different from the pronunciation. If I go back, I don’t want to look stupid. Audio, please?

    I suggest you study IPA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet , and later study the Navajo phonology: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navajo_phonology . And that will give you an Idea of how to pronounce words.
