LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION ONLINE
Access the lessons and work on them at the times most convenient
the assignments and tests, and return them either by email

dialect do you teach?

also have access to historical documents, some of which are written
the subscription price go up?
No! We're committed to keeping Speak
the refund / trial policy?
All subscription levels come with a seven-day
free trial period. If you have not cancelled, you will be
billed on day eight.
if I just want to suspend my membership for a period?
We can do it. Just remember that there will be a limited number
of memberships, and if someone else "takes your spot"
while you're gone, you may have to wait for an opening to get
only a limited number?
Because I can only carry on meaningful instruction with
a limited number of students. That interaction is what sets this
course apart from other products on the market, and it's what
people tell me is missing in the field. As we train additional
assistant instructors, we can raise the number of memberships.
often will the program be updated?
At least once a month until all of the Level 1 lessons
and tests are updated.
will I know a update has been released?
We'll advise you by e-mail, and on the main
page of the site.
I print the contents of Speak Cherokee?
You can print the pages and document files for easy off-line study,
but you won't be able to copy the audios or other interactive
we able able to interact with other students? Will
there be live online classes and chats? Message boards?
We plan to have all of that in place in
Spring 2008. Live interactive session scheduling will reflect
get all the lessons, including print-out, language aids, audios,
videos, even games and crossword puzzles, for only $20 a month!
