Sand as an educational material
Audio dictionary test, voice recording from Abdallah Kel Assouk reading my list of words
The initial idea was that I would collect recordings of pronunciations from a list of words to begin making an audio dictionary of the Tamasheq/Tamahaq branches. This is because whilst finding resources dotted around Facebook forums, I still was not learning how to speak the language, but simply recognise written words. Abdullah is a teacher in both branches from Tamenrasset, Algeria who I was put into contact with through a mutual friend and has been helping me with this project. I sent him a list of 21 words I felt were important to my practise for him to translate and pronounce.
