Let’s help Silbo Gomero!


I recently received this news about the following initiative from Busuu newsletter:

You can now learn the nearly extinct language of Silbo Gomero at busuu.com! Silbo Gomero is an almost extinct whistled language from a small Spanish island. It translates other languages into whistled tunes which can be understood up to a  distance of 8kms!

We have produced a short video which explains the history of this charming language. Click on the video below to have a look:

 

Busuu (took the name from one of the nearly extinct language spoken in Cameroon?) is a language learning community in Beta version that launched in March of this year which emphasizes the social side of learning a language.They offer online courses for four languages: English, Spanish, French and German and connect you with both people learning your language and native speakers of your language.
