The course runs on weekends with small groups of 10-15 participants who are taught by a teaching team of Kriol speakers and linguist experts. Courses are delivered in Ngukurr and provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity for non-Kriol speakers to access hands-on training in a Kriol speaking community. Content covered includes the sounds of the language (and how to write them), basics of Kriol grammar, cross-cultural communication and understanding kinship systems and kinterms used by Kriol speakers. Courses regularly attract participants from Katherine and beyond; for participants travelling to Ngukurr for the course, accommodation is available at the local Darlala Motel.
The next Kriol Awareness Course will be held on October 23-24, 2021. Information and registrations can be done via the Ngukurr Language Centre website: https://ngukurrlc.org.au/
