I’ve been thinking that I might make a podcast, but I’m not sure. I’m thinking that probably not many people will listen or that it won’t be very good. Not sure at this point what I’m going to do.

If you want me to make something though, let me know what you’d want to listen to. Do you want news? Chinook lessons? Let me know and maybe I’ll make it!

  1. Primarily instruction, but if it’s too basic, it listeners might outgrow it… but still you also should make it accessible to new listeners. How about this, staged conversations about news, stories, something topical. Structure the conversations to demonstrate Chinuk grammar and vocabulary while moving through some interesting topics. I suggest regular light news from the Pacific Northwest, and special editions where it’s a story (traditional or something like Cats of Ulthar).

    The special editions can be released with a pdf study guide.

    Basically, similar to what the Kaltash Wawa is now.

    Example convo:
    A: Hello! Kata maika?
    B: Klahowya! Tlush naika, doing good!

    And so on. I notice teachers in French Immersion will talk to their students kind of like this. I am not good at it. If you do it right, you can target an intermediate level of understanding, so that beginners will still get the gist but be able to learn over time, and intermediate to advanced will hopefully just appreciate keeping their skills fresh and be interested in what you are talking about.
