Sounds absolutely fascinating! Almost makes me want to be a student again. (Please note the word "almost" :-) ) But seriously, have you given any thought to: as the lang progresses, using phrases from the lang in your lectures and encouraging the students to use them in (and out?) of class? IMHO it might add another layer of "special" to an already special experience. va'i wuh mhuhu, auag kehs wfozuh! Success to you all! Dan Sulani -- likehsna rtem zuv tikuhnuh auag inuvuz vaka'a. A word is an awesome thing.
