You’re invited to learn Secwepemctsin, the Secwépemc language, from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.
The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library and Secwepemctsin Family Home Kits are partnering to offer Secwepemctsin Words of the Week.
According to a news release, the self-paced virtual, six-week program is designed to help beginners learn Secwepemctsin vocabulary through sound, by watching videos and playing games. Each week will also feature printable activities including colouring pages, crosswords and bingo. Themes include numbers, colours, family, animals, clothing and daily objects.
By completing weekly activities, participants are entered for a chance to win prizes.
Although the course started Oct. 26, organizers welcome anyone now as they can easily catch up.
Each Tuesday an email will go out with the words and a link to the online resource, but once a person receives the email they can go into previous weeks.
