უიი, რა კარგი სიტყვაა. დაალაიქებს! I need to use that in my next Georgian
conversation
class, just to show off a bit.

By the way, Expug, I've just been reading through the thread you have going at Unilang.
It's full of great information. You and Honey Buzzard are having a great conversation.
I learned a lot.

Honey Buzzard is indeed helping me a lot. I only hope I can improve and help him out as well. Drop by for a coffee whenever you want! =D

I'm noticing that the Newspaper Reader and the Dialogues at the Continuing Course are two different words, with unrelated vocabulary. I'm learning a little from each of them. Everything is likely to change again next week, when I'll have finished the Newspaper Reader and switch to a grammar, while also having finished the dialogues at the CC and moving on to original prose and poetry.

And I still need more grammar!

Many thanks for the correction, Murdoc. It was much less worse than expected. I see I still have trouble with the various forms of the verb 'to say' in the aorist and perfect.

I don't know if others will agree, but this is the sort of topic that demands intense drilling, which is lacking at the material I've seen so far. Even at Aronson's, the exercises are many but all sentences are mixed regarding the topics.

Yesterday during the flight here to my hometown I read the introduction to the prose section at ACC. It was nice to do some free reading on Georgian. Besides, having read this introduction in "extra" study time, that means when I've finished the dialogues, I'll be able to start right from Georgian text with introductions.

I've also used Goethe-Verlag's book2 for Georgian.

What did you think of this course? I'm thinking of going through it. My concern is that
it's basically taking English rules and imposing them on how the lessons are planned, if
other courses from the Book2 page are any indication.

Not all sentences are accurate due to the fact they picked some German (or was it English?) sentences and translated them into whichever language they offer. There were a couple of sentences that didn't sound idiomatic at all according to Murdoc, even though there wasn't a remarkable number of typos. Even so, it's a solid background on sentence patterns and thematic vocabulary. Considering the shortsge of resources for Georgian that go the opposite direction to dry grammar, I think it's worth go. It has audio, too.

That's what initially attracted me to the course - the audio. Anything I can stick into
my mp3 player and go about my day is preferable to sitting in front of that Aronson
grammar book :-).

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll give the course a try.
