A language-learner’s journey

Anna Clock, a participant in our Doyon Languages Online teacher training, formed a learning group with her brother, William, who is using Doyon Languages Online to learn Denaakk'e. Recently, Anna shared with us about their experience teaching and learning via distance – Anna at her home in Anchorage, and William working on his tug boat on the Cook Inlet. Follow their journey – and if you are teaching or learning a language using Doyon Languages Online, we would love to hear your story as well! Read more.
