Introductions

 

This lesson will teach you the basics of how to describe yourself and your relations. You will learn how to describe yourself, your family, your home, and your work to others. These are important skills to learn at the beginning, because once you have mastered these basics, you will be able to begin conversations and introduce yourself to other Mi'gmaq speakers when you meet them.
