I am a little ashamed to admit this but when I took a week off from practicing my Lakota language I forgot more than I would have liked to. I have lots of excuses on why this happened but that doesn’t change anything. My lesson I learned from a week off is DON’T take a week of from learning. With that being said this week I made extra time to regroup my learning. I started reviewing the animals and then people. Once I had gone over them a few times I was getting back in the swing of things. To continue my learning I have downloaded a Lakota language app on my phone to help me. I found this to be neat because when I am on the go and have a few minutes I can learn away from my computer. I thought this would be a good time management choice. I am glad to be getting back into the swing of things. After I had reviewed animals and people I reviewed the phrases I had learned. The phrases are harder to learn than just the single words.
A couple of weeks ago Chadron had a teacher interview day in which I participated in. When I interviewed at one of the stations I was handed a subbing application. As I looked through the application one of the questions were do you know Lakota language. I so badly wanted to put yes but I am nowhere near fluent but it was exciting that that was a questions that I can potentially answer yes to!
