The Cajun language, spoken by the descendants of exiled Acadians, has been passed on by word of mouth for more than two hundred years. Cajun French is still widely spoken throughout Louisiana, despite threat of extinction and the controversies associated with including the language in school curricula. Conversational Cajun French I, the first systematic approach to teaching the language, makes Cajun French accessible to those born outside Cajun families and works to preserve the Cajun language and culture.
Cajun French is still widely heard throughout Louisiana. However, the survival of this language—spoken by the descendants of the exiled Acadians—has by no means been assured (it was even illegal to speak it at one time), and even today the teaching of Cajun French in schools is a controversial issue. Now, the publication of Conversational Cajun French I, the first systematic approach to teaching the language, makes Cajun French accessible to those born outside Cajun families. Paperback.
