This course has a lot of issues. For example, shimá isn't mother, it's MY mother. shi- ni- and bi- for example are the my, your, his/her/its prefixes for nouns. A noun that is alone starts with a. Amá is actually "mother". éí is simply a placeholder or pause as is éíya. If you listen to KTNN radio online you will hear them say those pauses a ton. I recommend Diné Bizaad book, although I learned most from Diné College actually on the Navajo Nation. Nothing compares to living there and speaking with elders who actually speak it. Also, Rosetta Stone is good for learning some sounds.
