Chelsea Vowel: Unsettling Your Language

Screen Shot 2015-04-25 at 9.01.22 AM

Chelsea Vowel talks about being a learner of  Cree in this opening overview of her planned new series of Cree language learning podcasts. She touches something really important I’ve heard from other language teachers as well: the pressure, expectations, and even the shame that learners feel when their language – their birthright – takes work to acquire.
