Nya:wëh Sgë:no’,

Beginning Monday, September 25th, Seneca Language class will be made available each week on Monday and Wednesday evenings between 6pm and 8pm. Adults are the expected demographic for Wednesday nights as it coincides with the Youth Group time slot. This allows accommodation for adults while youth are occupied, giving more incentive for family attendance while diversifying available services. Monday night classes will therefore be designed for youth. However, both youth and adult classes will be beginner level. Both youth and adult classes will cover the same topics, with different forms of presentation. 

An expected topic progression through the end of the year is outlined below:

Week: Topic: Example Activity:
September 25th & 27th  Pronunciation and Greetings Flash Cards
October 2nd & 4th  Greetings and Responses Greetings Game
