This is the best article I have yet read on learning Sami, and I think I've read them all.

Euro Talk Interactive has Talk Now! Saami and Vocabulary Builder Saami, both of which I purchased from Amazon.com. However, they don't go far enough. Thanks to this article I have registered for Davvin.

This is an interesting site; I need to figure out how to get specific questions out.

Nice job! (Although I'm too tired to read the whole text right now. I'll definitely come back later.)

I have the Finnish Davvin 1 and 2 and they are made by the same person, not translated. I started learning saami
years ago, but never got past the first pages because of too many other things in my life. So I can't give you more
information about the book. I just wanted to mention, that it's available in Finnish too, in cae you want to add it to
your profile later.

Thanks very much. I've added several more links to the profile after having done some recent digging on the internet for supplementary material to support my current studies in Inari Saami.

Davvin seems to have been a collaborative project by the national broadcasting companies of Finland, Norway and Sweden and has been thus issued in Finnish, Norwegian and (presumably) Swedish editions (I assume that a Swedish edition exists given that I can vouch for the existence of Finnish and Norwegian editions).

I too have the Finnish edition of the course (but all 4 parts) and will add some comments about my learning experience with it after having worked through at least part of the course.

I have been doing Gulahalan 1 from Swedish to North Saami, or golligiella. It seems to be very excellent. The copy of Gulahalan that I had access to before was in English to Saami but there were none of the accessory helps of the full program and none of the audio clips. But I'd worked out of books before so I was doing it anyway. The difference is amazing. After years of looking for programs I finally complained to the right person who hooked me up.

I didn't know that there was a (partial) version of Gulahan in English.

No, I don't think there is. That was from Árran website, but there was no audio.
Here is Gulahalan with audio, dialogues (ságastallamat), exercises (hárjehusat), and dictionary (sátnelistu). Supporting language in Swedish.

What a detailed webliography, Chung! I used to be interested in Saami but the resources were mostly in Norwegian/Swedish, and now I'm actively learning Norwegian. It's queued, I'll certainly learn it someday, maybe after Estonian and Mari =D
