This study course is a intermediate study written and spoken in conversational Cherokee.  There are twenty-two lessons, dealing mainly with sentences using who, what, where, when, why and others; such as, go, tell, stay, etc.  It is an easy to use uncomplicated format.  The varied difficulties of the language have been omitted.

This study differs from the beginning course in that it is more conversational, meaning that many of the final vowels are silent.  When this happens, it is shown by the parenthesis around that syllable.  When you have a silent vowel, the consonant is pronounced with proceeding syllable.  This work is in the Western or Overhill Dialect, however both dialects can use it.  A quiz for each lesson with answers is at the back of the book. – $25.00
