I am from the Earth and the UK.
Long have I been an admirer of the Klingon race.
My main reason for joining here is to find ways of learning the Klingon language both spoken and written.

    I welcome you to the Klingon Imperial Forums.   I am Klythe, I handle much of the technical details of the forums.  If you have any questions about the forum software or such feel free to ask me.   

 Evil    Excellent.  More right honorable Klingons from the UK.   Are you a friend of Kehlan?   
Which part of the UK are you from if I may ask?

    The typical way of learning the klingon Language is by buying the Klingon Dictionary(TKD) and the Klingon Way(TKW) and Klingon for the Galactic Traveller(KGT).  The Klingon Language Institute noramlly has these and may other Klingon language material available, but last i checked thy were just selling memberships and a work translated from Chinese to Klingon.   They've been quiet the last year or two since they switched over to electronic publication...   They also offer a postal course, which is scored and help and corrections provided.

    Once you've gotten a good start with those, if you are strugglling, there are the language forums here, and the KLI mailing list where you can ask specific questions and to get clarifications and ideas.   

    I would offer you a word of caution.  If you don't set realistic expectations for yourself you will get frustrated and give it up...  Ultimately the only way to achieve fluency in a language is to use the language regualarly if not daily.  A lot of new learners shoot for fluency and burn out in learning quicklt.

Greetings Klythe

No, I know nobody from this forum.
I am from West Sussex on the South Coast.

Your warnings are well made and I will head them.
However, giving up is not in my nature.

Be well

A noble characteristic. y0da is looking for someone to practice with over IM. I recommend you contact him.  It’s a great way to practice once you work around time zone issues; this world time zome tool may help). Why don’t you contact him through PM or email, introduce yourself, and try to set up a time?

We also have a chat room for Forum members to use. The URL is http://www.klingon.org/phpchat/index.php. To log on, enter your user name (leave the password blank) and hit the chat button.

Let us know if anything materializes.

Kesvirit, your information is most helpful.
I shall take your advice once 2009 has started.
Until that time I am involved with many family matters.
