Want to learn to read Squamish Language names?
Our classes are open to anyone and everyone. You have two options: A six-week class or a two-day workshop both for $199.95. The six-week class is 2 hours per week from 7:00pm-9:00pm and the 2-day workshop is two Saturday’s from 10:00am-5:00pm (with a 30 min lunch break). The course fees go to the Squamish Language Scholarship fund and Squamish Language Instructors fees.
“How to Read The Squamish Language” Class is for people who have no experience with the Squamish Language. The learning objective of this course is to teach folks who to use and understand the official writing system of the Squamish Language seen on the Sea-to-Sky Highway signs or around the City of Vancouver.
These are not your typical language classes: no reading and no writing for the first four weeks, then you learn the writing system on the last two. It uses interactive games and language lessons to teach you the sounds first, then shows you what symbols are used to represent those sounds. At the end, you will be able to read words, phrases, place names, or possibly even the Squamish Language Dictionary.
