Learn Miriwoong Resources

Miriwoong Learning Resources

Our “Let’s Learn Miriwoong” resources help make learning Miriwoong possible for children and adults anywhere; at home, in the car or even out in the most remote parts of Miriwoong country. Hearing and seeing our language used in new and innovative ways is a great source of pride for our community. New technologies help to make it easier for everybody to start talking Miriwoong!

MDWg staff work tirelessly to bring the stories, lessons, and wisdom of our ancient language and culture into the modern world. We produce radio shows, write bilingual audio books, record videos and we’ve even created a Learn Miriwoong pp -available in App Store and Google Play.
