Introducing yourself

In this unit, you will hear how Bininj might introduce themselves. We will use these texts to explore different aspects of the language. At the end of this unit, you will be able to introduce yourself in language.

STEP 1: Listen to Ngalwakadj Jill Nganjmirra introducing herself. Just listen to the sounds of the language.

  • What do you notice about the sounds?
  • Do you recognise any words?

 


STEP 2: This time, you can watch the video and read the subtitles in Kunwinjku.

  • Can you follow the sounds and the words on the screen?
  • What do you notice about the words?
  • Do you recognise any words?
  • What do you think she’s saying?

 


STEP 3: This time watch the video and read the subtitles in English.

  • What do you notice about the English translation?
  • Were you right about what you thought she was saying?

 

Now we’ll break it down and explore different aspects of the language.
