Build your Nakoda vocabulary with the Fort Peck Language and Culture Department’s FREE vocabulary game for your phone or iPad. Quiz yourself every day to learn different categories – wild animals, food, drinks, and more! The app includes:

> Dozens of culturally-relevant categories designed by Nakoda speakers
> Audio pronunciation and visual aid for each word in the category
> Quiz yourself by matching English words to Nakoda words, and vice versa
> Progress through levels to unlock new words
> Review words you’ve learned by category or activity

After downloading and opening the app, get familiar with written Nakoda with our audio-visual pronunciation guide. Then choose ‘Download New Words’ to get started on learning Nakoda vocab!

Whether you are learning on your own, or taking a beginner’s Nakoda class, Nakoda Vocab Builder will build your confidence in using the language!

Designed for learning that is memorable and fun! Each word you match correctly increases your score, and each level you finish unlocks a new one! Words that are not matched correctly are repeated until you master them. This repetition method is an effective learning strategy.

Great resource but needs updating

When I first got this app it worked perfectly but as another review mentioned the new IOS update removed the pictures and sound so it’s hard to know the proper pronunciation of sounds and symbols. Please update! I’ve been using this to study my language and I’m worried I may not say i g the words correctly.

iOS 12.1.2 messed up the app

This app was great until my iPhone did an auto update to iOS 12.1.2. Now there are no pictures nor sound. So you cannot see what the word is supposed to be nor hear how it is pronounced. Please fix this glitch.
