Welcome to our Heritage Language School Portal. In this page you will find valuable information regarding the program. The program’s goal is to ensure our Eritrean cultural heritage languages are passed to future generations.


It is our desire to teach languages from all 9 cultural groups of Eritrea, based on the need of the Community Association. The ECAE is open to discuss possible paths to creating these classes, if there is a desire in the community.

At the moment the program has Levels A, 1 and 2 Tigrinya classes for children between the ages of four to fifteen years of age.

The program curriculum is organized as follows:

Level Curriculum
1  Developing Ge’ez alphabet writing skills (Curriculum will includes, game, songs)
2 Common nouns, verbs and day-to-day terminology as well as pronoun  (curriculum includes games, songs and homework)
3 More complex nouns, verbs and common phrases, (curriculum includes games, songs and homework)
4 Verbal communication and discussions in Tigrigna, writing paragraphs

A more detailed curriculum is provided for enrolled students.  If you would like to register your children in the program, an application form can be found at this link – Language program registration form.
