A Study of Nahuatl
A unique approach to learning the poetry & philosophy of Nahuatl...
Join us at Matinuahkalli for an in-depth study of the Nahuatl language, one of the many native languages of Mesoamerica that spanned from the southwest of the United States throughout Mexico down into Guatemala.
We will be learning about the three levels of Nahuatl: daily Nahuatl, reverential Nahuatl , and ceremonial Nahuatl. We will be learning vocabulary and basic syntax, yes, but will also go deeper to understand the conceptual semantics, metaphors and symbolism of the language in all its levels.
This course is open to anyone with little to no experience with Nahuatl but especially for those who want to understand the language from its ceremonial & philosophical roots.
Course will begin June 9th and will continue every Sunday for the next trimester (until the end of September) from 1:30-3:30 pm.
It will be available via SKYPE, when you register please include your skype username
