Hello everyone,

My name is Carola and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm fluent in Dutch and English, and am
studying Japanese, German and Mandarin. And it looks like I'll get to play around with
Manchu starting in September!

Welcome to the frum. I honestly thought that Manchu had died out, and that Emil Krebs was the last Westerner who learnt to speak it fluently.

It has, but written Manchu can still be studied! I'd compare it to classical Chinese.

(Am I allowed to post links? A very interesting fresh new website on Manchu is this one:
http://manc.hu/ )

Welcome Carola. It is great to see another native-Dutch speaker join the forum. I lived for
six years in the Netherlands and have been learning Dutch ever since. Ik wens u veel succes
met uw talen.

Hello, Carola, and welcome to HTLAL. Here you will find many helpful members and posts for your studies. Judging by your language experience, you will be able to offer help, too. Good luck with Manchu.
