Langgard wrote:The 'Kalaallisut oqalutta' series that is mentioned in the last post are designed for Danish children in compusory school. I do not think they will have much appeal to adult learners (but I must confess that I never worked my way through the books - only skimmed them).
So for learners who need to understand Greenlandic structure but not really need to learn to speak the language the traditional grammar books (Mike Fortescue in English or Stig Bjørnum in Danish) are by far the best entrance.
If on the other hand one wants to learn to communicate the approach must be very different and proficiency measures set much higher. There is at the moment only one system with such a scope available on the market, namely my own 'Greenlandic for Foreigners/ Grønlandsk for voksne' Modul 1 and 2.
You might want to check out the system on http://www.learngreenlandic.com
