Immersion Ojibwe Class at the University of Minnesota
In 2009, Dr. Fairbanks became the first person to receive a Ph. D in linguistics with a focus on the Ojibwe language. Dr. Fairbanks is offering an immersion Ojibwe class at the University of Minnesota beginning May 28 - June 14, Monday - Friday from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. The class is for people who have studied little Ojibwe and are interested in learning how to have conversations in the language. The class will be taught immersion style so students will hear how the language is spoken and many opprtunities will be giving to speak the language.
