THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT
Over four 1-hour weekly sessions, we will delve into the context of Noongar language, exploring its history and significance. We will explore the foundations of Noongar language and begin with greetings and introductions, allowing you to familiarise yourself with the unique expressions and customs of the Noongar people.
Throughout the lessons, participants will learn essential Noongar words and sentences to express yourself, from talking about country, describing native birds and animals, expressing feelings, to using action words to form basic sentences.
Through this course, you’ll gain practical language skills and gain a deeper sense of connection to Noongar country.
This course is aimed at adults but parents can bring children over the age of 12 along with them for a discount ticket.
Dylan is a Wadjak and Balardong Noongar and currently runs his own business called Kalyakoorl. His aim is to ensure Noongar language continues into the future – forever. Originally, Dylan studied a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts at UWA, but upon graduating realised he had a passion for educating and working with young people. He did the Teach For Australia program where he was placed at Balga Senior High School whilst completing a Master of Teaching. It was there Dylan became focussed on teaching Noongar and has been teaching and learning Noongar language ever since. Dylan now runs introductory and continuing Noongar language programs for community, schools and other organisations.
