My teacher told me all about "Andropov's Ears". However, she was talking in Georgian at the time so I was little the wiser by the end! It's a famous arch or some architectural site in Tbilisi, right?

From your postcard I can figure out that your friend's name is Lisbet, you are going to the Black Sea tomorrow, and that the weather is good. Not sure about the rest though.

The sentences on my pseudo-Georgian postcard were either taken directly from a language guide or made by inserting one word in a sentence from that source - as far as remember I used a Kauderwälsch booklet. No garantee for grammatical correctness, though...

Be victorious, Lisbeth (allegedly a greeting used in Georgian letters)
Splendid am-I
V.I. Lenin is gone
money is also gone
I go tomorrow
(to) the Black sea
Is fine the weather and-hot
Goodbye

"Andropov's Ears" is a building with several big arches side by side

YOUR VIDEO OF MODERN GREEK

I watched your video of Modern Greek. Besides my school experience with Anicient Greek I don't understand anything of the spoken language of Dimotiki. In this video you have improved your way of showing books to the audience a lot. Now I had the chance to read booktitles, at least of the larger writings. There seems to be a technical problem with your camera because the background in this video is unsharp only you as a person in the foreground are sharp. In your other videos it isn't this way. I don't know which kind of phototechnical problem this is. But perhaps you can solve it for your upcoming new videos.

Τωρα έχω τελειώσει την βίντεο μου στην δημοτική, αλλά μου έδωσε κάποια προβλήματα!

Πρώτον, ανακάλυψα μόνο αφού αυτό θα ήταν στο Youtube ότι ολόκληρο το προóιμιο έλειπε.. Γι 'αυτό και οδήγησε τη διαδικασία πάλι. Αλλά νόμιζα ότι υπήρχαν πάρα πολλά λάθη, έτσι έκανα ένα νέο πρώτο τμήμα. Πραγματικά έτσι έγινε, ότι έκανα όπως πολλά λάθη και γκάφες, όπως στο πρώτο σχέδιο. Αλλά τώρα τα λόγια εκεί έξω στο υπερδιάστημα, και δεν θα αλλάξει περισσότερο από τώρα και στο εξής.

So, the Modern Greek video is out now. But not without problems. Only when I had compiled and uploaded it I discovered that the start section was missing. So I built that again from the original recordings. But I was not too happy about it, so I recorded a whole new Greek section ... unfortunately with as many errors and tongue slips as the original recording. But now I have uploaded it, and I'm not going to make more changes.

By the way, I can see that I'm looking far too much at the little window with my humble self at the center of my computer screen. I'll have to do something about that. But I do think that I have followed Fasulye's suggestion and shown my books for slightly longer time. Making videos is a hard job!

Now the video in Esperanto is also made and uploaded, and it went fairly smoothly (especially considering that I have never spoken this language before). I mention the upcoming world conference in Copenhagen in the video. I checked its homepage and was somewhat stupified to see that participation for an outsider would cost 200 € - quite high - but maybe the going rate for such arrangements.

ESP: Iversen, mi reagis sur via You Tube kanalo al via video en Esperanto. Bone farita! 200 EUR por kongreso, kiu dauxras nur unu semajno, estas altaj kostoj, cxar krome oni devas zorgi pri hotelo kaj tio kostos ekstra. Povas esti, ke por la Universala Kongreso eblas, partopreni nu por 3-4 tagoj por malaltigi la prezon. Mi scias, ke tio por aliaj E-arangxoj eblas, cxar mi auxdis pri tio.

DU: Nu is mijn Nederlandse video ook klaar, en ik kon alles doen met slechts twee schoten maken - een voor het Nederlandse deel en een voor het Engelse deel. En ik heb alleen enkele blunders uitgeknipt. In het midden van het filmen is iets achter me an de boden gevallen, maar ik ben nog niet daarachter gekomen wat er eigenlijk gebeurde.

BA I: Setelah itu saya membuat Glosari Bahasa Indonesia dari dua brosur wisata dari Singapura, satu dalam Bahasa Indonesia, yang lain dalam bahasa Inggris. Sebenarnya saya pikir mereka berbicara Bahasa Melayu di Singapura (di antara semua bahasa Inggris) tapi saya kamus bahasa Indonesia berisi teksnya kata-kata asing.

DA: Og lige nu ser jeg dansk fjernsyn, hvor der er forelæsninger om kemi og fysik - lige nu om at udløse kemiske reaktioner med lys, og inden da om deformationer af metallers krystalstruktur under forarbejdning

So, now my Dutch video is also finished, and I did it in just two takes - one for the Dutch part and one for the English summary. While it was being compiled and uploaded I made wordlists from a couple of tourist booklets from Singapore, one in English and the other in Bahasa - actually I thought that the Bahasa used in Singapore (in between all the English speaking) were the Malayan variety, but the unknown words are generally found in my Indonesian dictionary - so maybe I should add that language to my 'studies' list to the left.

And now I'm listening to lectures in Danish on Danish television - right now something about light and chemical reactions, and before that something about changes in the microstructure of metals when they are being belaboured.

Unfortunately I'm running out of languages now. My Russian pronunciation is terra incognita - I don't have any idea about its closeness (or the opposite) to actual Russian pronuncation, but I have my doubts. And this also applies to Afrikaans because it has been virtually impossible to find spoken Afrikaans on the internet (apart from minutelong snippets on Youtube). I have heard a fair amount of Scots and Norwegian, but not trained speaking them. I also study 2 x Bahasa plus Irish, but they are not ready for public presentation. And on top of that I'm actually thinking about learning to pronounce Old French and maybe even Old Occitan - but all in all I doubt that I can continue making one video per day with new languages.

By the way:

Horats: sapere aude .... this Latin quote just popped up on my screen. I can't really disagree... The problem is that knowledge for common Danes according to the last lecture had been transmogryphed into knowledge about what the former X factor judges are doing right now.

UNIVERSALA KONGRESO

ESP: Ni estas 4 personoj en mia Esperanto grupo el Düsseldorf. Mi volas kune vojagxi kun miaj grupanoj el Düsseldorf. Fine de oktobro ni havos en Düsseldorf renkontigxon en kiu ni volos priparoli, kiu el ni kunvojagxas al Kopenhago kaj kiu ne. Mi certe iros al la Universala Kongreso, se ne iu laboro tion al mi malpermesas. Krome mi ricevis inviton de mia leteramiko el Svedio kaj mi sxatus post la Universala Kongreso pasigi unu semajnon en suda Svedio, sed mi ankoraux ne havas konfirmon de mia leteramiko.
