Preserve Our Language
Imagine traveling back in time to Mesopotamia and visiting the breathtaking expanse of the Nineveh plains—the language you would most likely hear spoken there is Chaldean Aramaic. A semitic language with rich history, it has been used in religious contexts for centuries, and its alphabet has served as a basis for the Hebrew and Arabic alphabets, among other languages. Today, it is mainly spoken in areas of present day Iran and Iraq, as well as within the Chaldean diaspora. This course was created in partnership with the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce and Chaldean Community Foundation in Detroit, Michigan.
