You can watch some news clips in Greenlandic there, go to "18:45 & 19:15 GL" in the menu.

Some Greenlandic learning materials have audio tapes / CDs with them, I'll write something about that later.

Kalaallit Nunaata Radioa: http://www.knr.gl/
used to have some audio clips as well, but I can't find them anymore now.

Can you hear it at least? I usually record those files with an audio recording program, so if you are simply interested in the sound files, I can send you some... but you can't watch it then.

Yaaaaayyyy :lol: :woohoo:

Do you understand Danish? I don't... I can read it alright, because it is almost like Norwegian (which I learn at university), but the pronunciation is very different.

I found this video on Youtube, apparently the work of some student directors (although I didn't watch the movie, I don't know how good it is, I just listened to the Kalaallisut while the window was minimized)

That film was actually made in Canada (Nunavut), but with Greenlandic people taking part. It was made by, or with help from http://www.isuma.ca/

It's mostly Greenlandic what you hear in there, the reporters and people commenting on the film, but the actual film is obviously in a Canadian Inuit dialect.
