So, my wife Kathy and I have been watching LOTR again over the last few
weeks. We finished the second disk of The Two Towers the other night. More
than once, Kathy has mentioned that "that Elf language" is pretty cool,
and she'd be interested in learning it.
However, she has a professed and apparently quite real mental block when
it comes to foreign languages (think Joey from "Friends" learning French).
My suspicion is that there is enough fan material out there on both Quenya
and Sindarin for us to find a learning method that suits us.
So: Tolkienistas, what's good? Ideally, I'm looking for free web resources
at this point, and I think a Word Of The Day would be really useful. Also,
if there's a flashcard site for Tengwar, that'd be pretty cool. I found
one with Google, but the user interface is surprisingly opaque. I'll keep
looking for resources, but if there's a few "best of breed" sites out
there, I'd love to hear about them.
