Tribalingual’s goal is to preserve endangered cultures through teaching languages. We believe that documentation alone is not enough to preserve intangible cultural heritage. That’s why we find speakers of endangered languages – often in secluded areas – to run online courses available to students based all over the world. To us language isn’t necessarily an object in itself but a way to understand a community and culture, through the eyes of the native speaker. In this way, new speakers who take our courses help to keep rare languages and traditions from disappearing forever.
All our courses take place online. The lessons are split into manageable, “bite-size” topics that allow you to progress at a pace that suits you.
Courses are supplemented with weekly 30 minute Skype sessions with the native speaker, who bring a unique perspective to the courses.
When you take our courses, you will discover a different way of thinking about the world. Start your experience now!
