2,465 languages are believed to be endangered. At least 230 have become extinct since 1950. Tribalingual can offer you ten-week courses. It gives people basic knowledge in five languages. In this list is Ainu (Japan); Mongolian; Quechua (South America); Gangte (northeast India); and Greko (southern Italy).
Tribalingual isn’t the first trial to revitalize endangered languages. For Gibbens, a forgotten language means losing more than just a way of communicating.
We’re trying to preserve cultures through the medium of language. It’s a kind of gateway to understanding different world views. We want a world that is diverse and colourful.
