Linguistics for Indigenous languages cohort – January 2019

The course ‘Linguistics for Indigenous Languages’ was attended by eight students from all around the country – 3 from the Northern Territory (Maningrida and Tennant Creek), 4 from New South Wales (Ballina, Newcastle, Sydney) and 1 from Western Australia (Perth). The course was taught by Dr Nicoletta Romeo, a Batchelor Institute lecturer, who normally teaches it in the Linguistics program at Charles Darwin University (CDU).

The course was very well accepted by the students, and at the end of course, two of them decided to enrol in the Diploma of Indigenous Work at CDU. This is a wonderful outcome, and we wish everyone the best with their ongoing language work.
