How are you learning Greenlandic?
(I could not find any place names in Cree, so I just added -win, the suffix to make verbs nouns, to Greenland :whistle: )


Sisamanik atuagaqarpunga, "Grønlandsk for begyndere I", "Grønlandsk for begyndere II"-lu, "West Greenlandic Descriptive Grammar"-lu, "A Grammar of Kalaallisut"-lu ateqarput, nittartakkattaaq atorpakka, s.i. ilinniusiorfik oqaaserpassualeriffik-lu.
I have four books, called [....], and I also use websites such as Ilinniusiorfik and Oqaaserpassualeriffik.

I don't ever practice writing, but soon I will start to do so a lot.

I think Cree is an interesting language, and its orthography seems pretty! (Latin and syllabic, but I'm not even going to try and translate that :nope: ) How are you[i/] learning Cree?

I think [i]Cree
should really be spelled Crii but I'm not really sure how strict the spelling rules are in regard to foreign words :mrgreen:
