Xanönfê! This is the future site of a graded reader intended to teach the Sajem Tan language in stages. In the first few lessons, you will read things that will use basic vocabulary and sentence structure, teaching you the most important things: word order, common phrases, verbal aspects, and more. In the next levels, as the course progresses, you will be challenged by passages of increasing difficulty. New words and morphemes will appear in green; hover over them to see their meaning. Study the vocabulary, as it will come up again and again.


  1. Pronunciation - Dötanţnu

Level 1 - Basics

In this level, you will be given some explanations in English, but these will be sparing after the first lesson. After that, concepts will mostly be explained through pictures. This course tries to use as little English as possible. During these lessons, the readings will be in little light blue boxes, with explanations and things of the sort on the plain white background.
