A website has been developed at the University of Guam for anyone interested in learning to speak the Chamorro language. To assure its success, especially among high school students, the website developer is inviting students to give feedback as a service learning project.

Preparation Instruction:

Students have the opportunity to earn 20 service-learning hours. To prepare for the project, do the following activities:


Activity Instruction:

Students will be given written instructions on how to start and complete their online service-learning project, complemented with an optional personal orientation.  

Students are to use their own electronic devices and access the internet at their own expenses.
