Cree, a member of the Algonquian family of languages, is nationally recognized as the most widely spoken Canadian native language. The revised Spoken Cree, Level II explores the spoken and written language in the cultural context of a Northern Cree village. Spoken Cree, Level II is the intermediate volume of a three-level Cree language course. This volume builds on the fundamental knowledge of the Cree language established in Spoken Cree, Level I. From the weather to a wedding, tea breaks to trapping, Level II enriches Cree language proficiency in everyday situations. In addition to sections devoted to developing speaking and listening skills in conversation, Level II provides exercises in syllabic writing. Each of the 18 new lessons includes: . basic conversation-introduces vocabulary in typical conversations; . discussion of grammar-provides clear explanations of grammatical principles; . drills-reinforces grammatical patterns through practical exercise; . conversation practice-develops free conversation skills; . listening in-improves listening ability; . reference list-includes new vocabulary for each unit; . review-offers practice with simple questions and answers.
