Begin to speak Yolngu, one of the Australian Aboriginal languages.

Why study Yolngu online?

Engage with the culture of the Yolngu people of Northeast Arnhem Land, while you start to speak the Yolngu language.

Deepen your understanding of Yolngu culture, through the exploration and engagement with  art, ceremonies and songs, as well as the system of gurrutu or kinship.  An understanding of Yolngu will be a great basis for work in the public sector, museums, schools and universities and the legal system.

Studying online means that you can explore this indigenous Australian culture, while bringing this new understanding to your everyday life. With knowledge gained from learning Yolngu, you’ll enjoy a richer cultural engagement with contemporary Australian society.
