50 words project

This project is starting in 2019 and aims to provide resources for schools to teach at least fifty words in their local language.

We are asking for contributions of at least 50 words in as many Australian Indigenous languages as possible. The typed words need to be listed in a spreadsheet, with audio file recordings attached. Full instructions on capturing the details will be provided to participants.

The words will be used as teacher resources; in apps; and online language resources (such as the Gambay map by First Languages Australia).
