AUTHOR: Bo Tayolor

Cherokee language study with emphasis on the Eastern dialect or the Giduwa dialect. Includes sound recordings.

In this lesson you will learn about the Cherokee words for LISTEN and GET UP.Most lessons that I will be sending you are going to be commands because that is how you speak when you are first learning.

So take the word and the other variations of the word and put them on a note card.

You want to focus in on the single command and the others will come into play later. As we do more cards you will notice a pattern start to arise.
