Navajo language class to be offered in spring

A beginning Dine (Navajo) language class will be taught at New Mexico State University during the spring semester, which begins Jan. 10, 2001.


The three-credit class is being offered through the university's languages and linguistics department. It is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:55 to 10:10 a.m. in O'Donnell Hall Room 317. It is listed as Lang 113, Beginning Indigenous Language I.

A beginning Dine class was first offered on campus last spring, followed by an intermediate class this fall.

The class aims to help Navajo students become more fluent in their native language, especially in reading and writing it, and to attract other students interested in learning Dine. It is taught by Dolly Manson-Montoya, a Navajo and NMSU curriculum and instruction doctoral student.

For more information about the class, call the NMSU languages and linguistics department at (505) 646-3408.
