Assyrian language curriculum for non Speakers?
« on: June 24, 2009, 12:20:32 PM »
Hello,
I am teaching Assyrian to Assyrians who generally do not speak the language.  Therefore they are interested in learning not only how to read and write but to speak (the Eastern Dialect) as well.  The books I have are generally composed for speakers of the language (i.e. Middle Eastern Assyrians).  Do we have a curriculum that addresses the needs of non-Assyrian speakers?  If so I would really appreciate it if you can share the title(s) with me!

Hi Alda,

I'm not aware of any good books that teach the language to non-native speakers.  However, I think there is a university level program (with its own textbooks I assume) that teaches modern Eastern Assyrian for those who live in or near the Detroit area in the U.S.  Here is a link to the website:

University of Detroit Mercy offers an accredited course.  I can find out for you who's teaching the class if you're interested in speaking with them (they call it Neo-Aramaic because the Chaldean church is involved).

Thank you Isay and Jonadona. 

Jonadona - if you can put me in touch with them or figure out where we can purchase their book it would be great!

Thank you for your interest in Aramaic Studies,  I am the director of the program and to respond to the gentlemen's comment regarding Neo-Aramaic, we are not affiliated with any church or political organization.  This program is provided by University of Detroit Mercy with the help of the Ishtar Cultural Center which is a community center for our people in Detroit. 

Alda, I had spoken to Zaya of ACSSU to put together a distant learning class in Canada.  We are now expanding to Online courses in the fall, and will have the program available in San Jose, CA by summer of 2010.  We encourage the spread of these course which are accredited and transferable to almost all Universities.  If you are interested in bringing the course to Canada please contact me direct at Info@aramaicstudies.com

Thank you,

I would probably need that book, the problem with me is, I do speak but I can´t read or write on our language.
