Welcome to the Goldfields Aboriginal Language Centre (GALC) website!
This is the website for the Goldfields Aboriginal Languages Centre. The project commenced in 2011 and aims to record, lingusitically analyse and database the Aboriginal languages of the Goldfields, WA, region in order to create preservation and use documents such as dictionaries and grammars. This work is done in partnership with each language group of the Goldfields.
The Project team partners with each language group to create teaching and learning resources in order for people to enjoy their languages and teach children language speaking, reading and writing skills.
You’ll find lots of information about the languages of our region and the language project on this website but if you would like more, drop us an email via the contact form!
Watch out for up coming GALC events in the below ‘events’ section or checkout our Facebook page!
