What time does the class start? All classes are in Central Time Zone, and it will depend on what time or class you have enrolled in.

Can I take a Level II or higher class? Currently we are only offering a Level I class. After the Level I classes are complete, you will advance to a level II class and build from there. 

Do I have to pass the course to advance? We will offer a mastery test at the end of the course. The test is not required to move to the next level, but you will be recognized if you complete the test and score above 80%. 

How long will it take me to learn Choctaw, and will I be fluent?  That is a great question to ask! 

There is not one specific answer to this question, however. It depends on multiple factors. Here are some things to consider:

  • What is your current level of Choctaw?
  • How many hours per week can you invest in improving your Choctaw?
  • What is your definition of "fluent"? Some people just want to be conversational while others need to be able to speak Choctaw at a university-level professional setting.
  • What is your motivation level?
  • The language will still require you to learn and study on your own time. You can always check out our website to learn more at www.choctawschool.com
