I understand that the nuučaan̓uł Mentor-Apprentice 1-month program will involve 50 hours of one-on-one language immersion with my proposed Mentor in October/November 2019 to help me improve my language fluency. I understand that if we are accepted, we will be provided with language immersion techniques training with a coach. I understand that both Mentor and Apprentice will be paid an hourly rate from Hesquiaht Language Program in order to make this 50 hours together possible. *
As the Apprentice, I understand that I will be trained to be responsible for driving the learning in this program. I accept responsibility for keeping in contact with the language coach to get advice/ideas and to provide progress updates. *

If yes, please explain how you and your Mentor can make this number of hours together possible. Identify the time of day and which 3-7 days of the week you can meet with your Mentor (i.e. Monday & Thursday after work for 3 hours, Saturday & Sunday for 3 hours in the mornings). *
If no or maybe, please explain factors that might make the 12-15 hours per week target unobtainable.
Will you be able to travel with your Mentor for a 1-day Mentor-Apprentice training in Port Alberni? It is likely the training will happen on Friday, October 4, 2019. *

Based on your own best estimation, please tell us your current nuučaan̓uł language fluency. (low, mid or high beginner/low, mid or high intermediate i.e. “mid beginner”). *

Your application will be confidentially reviewed by a panel of fluent Elders and a Mentor-Apprentice program graduate. Please give a longer explanation to the following: 1) why you want to learn your language 2) where/with whom you hope to be able to pass our language on in the future. These two answers will be closely examined by the Elders in the applications review process. *
