We created a beginners guide to help community members confidently engage in Assyrian conversations. This is Version 1.0 and we are open to your feedback.
We also did our best to capture many language tools and resources on the last page of the PDF. To add more tools (we know there are more!), please email us. We are targeting to release an update by the end of 2021.
Hours of language use per week are needed in order to maintain a learner’s confidence in the Assyrian language.

Want to volunteer?
We’ve had an incredible response so far. Your support will play an important role in the revival of the Assyrian language.
Volunteering can take many forms — even on a project by project basis rather than a weekly # of hours.
Are you a business?
We collaborate with community partners and businesses in many ways. Business support helps drive engagement.
If you’d like to explore how your business can support this community or see our past work, please reach out.
