Teitho Edhellen! Syllabus After doing the main textbook, this was a piece of cake. I turned all of the Sindarin script lessons into a PDF workbook that you can download and print out. Thanks to a suggestion by Faravenel, I’m calling the language course “Gelio Edhellen!” and the script course “Teitho Edhellen!” Since the textbook […]
It’s 1AM, and I’m done. I did it. I finally fished the massive edit of the textbook. I made a few mistakes along the way… got eyes and ambition greater than my time or ability. Ended up having to cut some parts that I had a lot of fun making. Fear not, those will still […]
I’m really sorry to do this. I really didn’t want to. But, I’m looking at another depression episode. Parts of my wife’s family really disapprove of our relationship, which lead to some fights with them after her grandmother’s funeral. Then the election… ugh. I’ve been reminded again that people irrationally hate me and my wife […]
I’ve got a funeral to go to at the end of the month for a grandma-in-law, I’m stressing out over it a bit, and can’t really get anything done for a few weeks. I’ve amended the calendar to reflect the changes to our schedule.
I am being facetious. This month has been terrible. TL;DR: Shit happened. Class is starting up again where it all fell apart 2 weeks ago. Grammas are ending up in the hospital and it looks like their ends are drawing near – for one of my best friends and my wife. There’s been a lot […]

Class Starts September 5th! Registration is closed. People who are in the waiting list will be added to the Spring 2017 semester if no one drops out before September 5th. If you’re on the waiting list, keep watch over the next week so you can be ready if you get added to the Roster! Some […]
One of the cool things that this book writing project has caused is that there is a WordPress pluggin for writing interlinear glosses! What are those? It’s best to show you: [gloss]*Ce gi ndegin might you kill-I[/gloss]“I might kill you.” This will let me teach Sindarin syntax much more effectively! This is just one of […]
That didn’t take long, did it? Once again – If you’re a returning student, you’re free to register again without worrying about taking someone else’s place. The 15 person limit is for new students only. Progress on making the textbook print ready is going a little slower than I’d like. It’s turning out to be […]
