MLT supports workshops at the Far West Language Centre

MLT’s Celeste Humphris travelled to the Far West Language Centre in Ceduna this week to work with a group of Mirning people on their language.

Participants took part in a Mirning pronunciation workshop on Wednesday, during which the group built upon existing language skills and practiced speaking their language.

On Thursday, workshop participants wrote a story in English and spent time looking up words on the Mirning Language Learning Program to include. The end result was a wonderful story about a little girl and her grandmother going to pick quandongs, with a large proportion of the story in the Mirning language.  The story is now ready to be developed into a language resource for the community.
