Georgian College to offer Anishnaabemowin Language Programming diploma

January 16, 2013

Starting next September, Georgian College will offer a two-year Anishnaabemowin Language Programming diploma. The only one of its kind in Ontario, the fully accredited program focuses on creating functional Anishnaabemowin speakers by taking a multi-pronged approach to language retention. Students will receive in-class support, as well as participate in one-on-one sessions with a language specialist and facilitated group discussions to help with pronunciation and sentence formation. The program also prepares students to design, develop, and implement language programs at the community level. Students will study Anishnaabemowin as a whole, including the history, changes, and current issues affecting the Ojibway language today, as well as teaching methods and curriculum design. Georgian College News
