Łush! Aba kexchi t'uxelq'a-hayash...

This app is a needful and very much appreciated contribution to learning for Chinukwawa for learners of all ages. It is endearing in design, shows real community spirit. It delivers a baseline vocabulary in an accessible way with plenty of cues and tools to master the pronunciation of Grande Ronde (Southern dialect) speaking. The orthography is the new one developed by that community, and it is a great improvement, if a bit difficult to type some of the letters with an iOS device. The GR folks are amazing for putting this out!

The only real issue with this app is that it weighs in at a gigantic 950mb... I can not fathom why, unless all the media are in full size wav files. Similar such language apps are usually a quarter of that, tops. If the devs could trim that down it would be great...


Great way to learn the language

I think this app is a great way to learn the chinuk wawa language! I can't wait for new words and phrases to be added.
