Na’vi is a constructed language spoken by the Na’vi people in the world of James Cameron’s 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!

Here you will find the latest official Na’vi lexicon and grammar. Beware of outdated or erroneous information elsewhere on the internet.)
