That would be fabulous, newyorkeric, if it's not too much work for you! Thank you.

I'll just make a quick note that Evan Millner is now doing an Ancient Hebrew course (he calls it Classical Hebrew) using the same oral and serial method I described for the French course. Right now there is an introduction and three videos on the alphabet. He is Jewish and has a lot of education when it comes to the Ancient Hebrew language.

He also plans to do a series on Ancient Greek on his YouTube channel.

Regarding my French pronunciation - on the youtube course I am careful to point out
variant pronunciations - not so much in the first 2 lessons, but after that, I do it
with some regularity.

French pronunciation varies widely throughout the francophone world. There are no
inaccuracies as such in my pronunciation, but it is not the Parisian standard, as I
have not spent much time listening to Parisians.

It is true I sometimes use the more informal pronunciation of oui,in the first oral
lessons, but later on in the oral course I point out that in a formal context, you
would not say "way", but "wi". Way is more like "yeah", and would be used when reading
'oui' in reported colloquial speech, for example. This is also a generational thing,
the pronunciation of this word is shifting, and in oral colloquial French, in speakers
under 25, you are more likely to hear "way" than "wi".

Although I am teaching a formal grammar based course, with the goal of being able to
read 19th century literature, (The oral course will be followed by a reading course,
eventually) at the same time, due to the oral nature of the lessons, I am exploring the
issues surrounding pronunciation.

Indeed, I offer variant pronunciations when giving new words, when there is a
significant variance in regional pronunciations, particularly as this is an oral course
- as many words are pronounced differently in the Provence, or the Midi, let alone in
Switzerland, to the Parisian standard. Once you include Quebec, and the former
colonies, you have even wider variation, particularly in vowel quality.

I spell out all the words, as this aids learning. Learning is not fast, writing things
out slowly helps with memorisation. I want the learner to manually produce an exercise
book with their grammar and vocabulary. Very few learners can learn at speed, often
deliberately slowing things down is necessary. Particularly when it comes to language
learning, most students dramatically underestimate the amount of repetition and time
necessary to learn something to the degree that it is internalised.

Thank you for pointing that out, Evan. Thanks for making these videos.

I haven't really watched many of your videos, but I seem to like the method you're using.

I should also say that Evan commented on his YouTube channel that it will be 2-3 years, after he's finished the French and Latin courses, that he'll begin work on the Ancient Greek course.

I have created two playlists of decent courses.

Mandarin - CCTV are producing a series called Growing Up With Chinese, it's on their website (along with several other courses) at http://english.cntv.cn/program/learnchinese/growingwithchine se/index.shtml but the video on the site doesn't always seem to work. It's not complete, but I believe mine is the most comprehensive playlist of these at the minute : http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFB7F966BC824B0E4&feat ure=mh_lolz
EDIT (06/Jan/12): It seems one of the uploaders has closed their account, so the majority of the videos are no longer available on youtube.

Esperanto - Pasporto Al La Tuta Mondo by Esperanto USA. Reasonable production quality, and it builds up brilliantly, reinforcing the material well. Again, I have a playlist available: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB51DB02FF77282E7&feat ure=mh_lolz

For French pronunciation I really enjoy French Sounds on YT.
French Sounds

I find these videos very helpful.

PSI don't know why I can't get links to form properly here.
