In this month’s podcast, we play a round of “Name that language!” where I read language facts and have David try to guess the language being described. In honor of National Indigenous Peoples Day, all languages discussed are native to North America.
If you want to play along with David, don’t scroll down because the resources I provide below give away the languages.
