Learn Greenlandic

Learn to speak Greenlandic with uTalk and be part of a tradition that stretches back to the origins of Greenland’s people. This indigenous language is most similar to the Canadian Inuit languages. However, it uses the Latin alphabet. You’ll have lots of fun with it – especially if you like tongue twisters as some words can get so long they take up a whole sentence!

Fun facts about Greenlandic

The word for 'one' is 'ataaseq', or 'the remaining one (if you take away the rest)'. 'Ten' is 'qulit' meaning 'the upper part', because the upper body has 10 fingers.

A lot of information can be crammed into one word. For example, 'uiqarpoq' means 'she has a husband'.

We borrow the words kayak and anorak from Greenlandic.
