Summary
"In 1788, there were around 250 Indigenous languages in Australia. About half of them have since died out and only 20 or so Indigenous languages are still strong and spoken by young people. This book shows how three schools are helping to 'keep language strong'. Discover the cultures and histories of different Indigenous groups as you learn about the Guugu Yimithirr, Wiradjuri and Torres Strait Creole languages."--Back cover
