Written by 

A one-day intensive course in the Cherokee language will be offered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, in Room 143 of the Cordelia Camp Building at Western Carolina University.

Two fluent speakers of Cherokee, Tom Belt, WCU visiting instructor of Cherokee, and Hartwell Francis, director of the university’s Cherokee language program, will introduce the Cherokee syllabary, provide tools for learning it and review Cherokee syllabary literature. Students will move on to engaging in brief conversations in Cherokee.

Participants will be provided with Cherokee language sound files on CD for review and further study, a syllabary chart and reference sheets.

The course fee is $59 for those who register by June 11 and $79 thereafter. A lunch will be provided.
