გამარჯობა!

I've decided to start this log because I've been browsing through my Georgian books in the past few days.

I still haven't made up my mind as for which book to use. I'm used to learning languages through short
lessons as in the Assimil method, and I find it difficult to use books that present a lot of vocabulary and
grammar before the first exercises, like Kiziria's, Aronson's and Hewitt's. So, I plan to keep on doing bits and
pieces of each of these books until I feel comfortable to advance.

There are some other books in Russian and German too (which I actually like better), but I don't feel
comfortable to learn by reading at those languages.

I hope to post here my impressions and whatever doubts I come across. I'd appreciate the help of native
speakers as well as other learners who have gone through the same difficulties I will face from now on.

Wish me luck!

Good luck!

This is Junesun from Unilang, if you still remember me. It's been a while since I was
last involved there. What happened to your other languages?

Hi Junesun! Sure I still remember. Glad to hear from you!
My other languages are still going on slowly. Actually I can only speak bits and pieces of some Romance languages. I dropped languages for several years, and have been working mostly on improving my English. Then when I resumed languages, I decided to take things slowly, not beyond my capacitiies. I started learning Mandarin actively last semester from the Assimil book, and this has been my main concern. I'm also working on improving my French. It seems that Georgian will still be on and off, but I'm glad that I've found people who are actively learning and helping each other right now, after so many years of little access to resources and to native speakers. I still need to learn to read German and Russian, so I can have access to the best textbooks for the languages of the ex-USSR in which I'm interested, be it kartvelian, north-caucasian, finno-ugric, turkic, indo-european...

=============================
So, today I did lesson 2 of book2. I'm slowly becoming more accostumed to the alphabet. I want to be able to read it without having to mentally spell out letters, but this shall come naturally.

I (re)took Hewitt's lesson 01 too. No big doubts, though I still have to get used to all those motion verbs and their irregular forms.

That's a great idea to find books in Russian/German. I hadn't thought about that. I just might get one in
Russian eventually, so I can practice both Georgian and Russian at the same time. Well anyway, good luck!
I'll help if I can but obviously I could only do so for very basic things..:)

If you'd like to practise recognizing the Georgian letters and develop your speed, you
could do so and help me by going to

http://bit.ly/zZbiO1

This is an automatically-generated course to teach the Georgian letters, using the same
method as my courses at
http://www.learnlangs.com/RWP/Korean
http://www.learnlangs.com/RWP/Arabic (available as ebook and paperback)
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Modern_Greek

Basically the skeleton for such a course for Georgian, which I might publish in the
future. If you read the words and let me know which ones don't work, that will help me
prepare the course. Words were translated using Wikipedia and Google Dictionary for
Georgian.

Hi Expugnator.
Just dropping in to say hello and wish you luck in your studies. We now have four Georgian logs up and
running on the site, which is fantastic. Looking forward to reading about your studies.
