Come to learn Nahuatl!
This workshop will be run by Abelardo de la Cruz, who's mother tongue is Nahuatl. He is currently a PhD student in the department of Anthropology, at the University of Albany, SUNY. He serves as a Nahuatl language instructor at the University of Utah.
In this class students will have their first exposure to the Nahuatl language. This is the variety from the municipality of Chicontepec, in the Huasteca region of northern Veracruz, Mexico. Overall, students will practice situations such as how to introduce themselves, how to introduce another person, how to say what the student likes or dislikes. Finally, students will learn how to use the several expressions of farewells.
This program will take place in-person at the Newberry Library.
