I thought some of you might be interested in this link: http://www.tusaalanga.ca/lesson/lessons

All dialogues and vocabulary items come with a sound file. Another useful feature is that you can see an alphabetical list of suffixes by clicking the "Grammar" tab.

Asukuluk!
Excellent!

This is awesome, thanks for the share!

Does anyone else picture Mr. Burns going "Asukuluk!"?

I wonder if they've ever translated the Simpsons into Inuktitut?

Also, here's a sample sentence to tempt the rest of you. It's nice and short, only two words.

Kiinaujakkuvimmiinngaarlunga niuvirviralaamuurniaqqunga.
When I leave the bank I will go to the corner store.

:P

Thanks. Inuktitut seems to have a very small number of phonemes.
