For those with little or no background in Inuktut, Pirurvik offers a series of 30-hour courses
intended to bring a student from beginner to intermediate level Inuktut. Allurvik is Level 2.
All instruction is provided though Inuktut immersion with minimal English communication
permitted. The student handbooks and workbooks provide grammar explanations in English
and extensive practice for learning basic structures.
Allurvik means “the next step.” This course builds more complex language skills including:
• talking about events in the past and future,
• telling time,
• possession and the location of objects.
Students are introduced to the syllabic writing system, but will focus on working on regular
writing assignments in qaliujaaqpait (roman orthography). Our instructors work with students
to perfect their pronunciation and build on the Pigiarvik course.
Schedule: Monday/Wednesday/Friday, 9:00 am - 11:00 am
