The course is designed to be completed in order, and it will not allow you to advance without successfully finishing the previous lesson. The optimal browsers for the course are Safari and Google Chrome. Other browsers will work but will not allow you to hear the sound clips in the glossary or in the games.
Games are best viewed on desktop systems and some don’t work on tablets, phones, or iPods. Also, the material is best viewed in the browser if it gives you the option.
Please be patient once you enroll in the course, as we will have to confirm your account. Once you receive a confirmation notice you will be ready to login and start learning. Remember to have fun with the language. This is our language, so don’t be afraid to use it. You will make mistakes from time to time, but it is okay. It’s all part of the learning process. You are honoring our ancestors by learning to speak and use our language. The Potawatomi Language was a gift from Mamogosnan, the Creator. It’s our job to learn and use this precious gift.
We hope this course will make the language accessible and engaging for learners.
