ALBUQUERQUE – A popular language-learning app is adding Navajo to its portfolio.
KOB-TV reports that Duolingo has begun offering Navajo, or Diné, as a language option for learning on the mobile app.
Clayton Long, who is the head of the bilingual education for San Juan School District in Utah, tells the station that he and his students collaborated to develop the language lessons on the app.
The first of the courses were unveiled last week.
Long says a total of nine lessons he and others developed will be released in the coming months as part of the ongoing Duolingo project.
