Na’vi is a constructed language spoken by the Na’vi people on Pandora in James Cameron’s film, Avatar. This language was created by Dr. Paul Frommer, Professor Emeritus of Clinical Management Communications at USC. LearnNavi.org exists to share this beautiful language with all who want to learn, as well as to promote and assist in its continued development. Whether you are brand-new to Na’vi, or speak it like an Omatikaya, all are welcome here!
LearnNavi.org was created in 2009 and is the home of the largest and most active online fan community for Avatar. Our international community is diverse, accommodating and friendly. Join us!

Translations of the dictionary in additional languages can be found under the Media tab.
(The resources here at LearnNavi are sanctioned and approved by Dr. Paul Frommer and contain the latest official Na’vi lexicon and grammar. Beware of erroneous information elsewhere on the internet.)
Site Features and Other LearnNavi Resources
This informational website, like the Na’vi language itself, is vital and growing. We have an updated Na’vi-to-English vocabulary section, information on speaking/pronouncing Na’vi, and a grammar and syntax section. We have an IRC server at irc.learnnavi.org, #na’vi for text chats that you can access with your own IRC client, or via our web-based SSL IRC Client. We also have a TeamSpeak3 server at ts.learnnavi.org:9987 for audio chats. There are more learning resources in the media section. Check back often for updates, since Na’vi is constantly evolving!
We have a free Learn Na’vi Mobile App for Apple devices, courtesy of Seze.
For Android users, there is an Android Learn Na’vi app that is still in development. It is quite stable, but will require downloading and manually installing. You may have to enable “Unknown sources” in your device’s security settings.
