Welcome to the National Breath of Life Self-directed Training series! We are currently adapting and
expanding much of our Module 1
content into a series of self-directed online trainings that you
can complete from the comfort of your home. The first course of the series, Linguistics for
Archives-Based Language Revitalization, is now live and can be accessed by following the instructions
below. In this course, you will learn the basics of linguistics as it applies to language revitalization
and the interpretation of archival materials. The course is separated into two chapters, the first
teaching about human speech sounds and writing systems and the second focused on how to analyze,
interpret, and create words and sentences.
The National BoL Self-Directed training program is hosted on the EdApp platform. To enroll and get started click on the Sign Up button below to open EdApp. Next, enter your

complete the courses at your own pace. While the courses were designed sequentially, you can feel free
to jump ahead depending on your interests and existing knowledge.
