Sting Where can I learn Elvish?

I was wondering how I might learn to speak Elvish. Both Quenya and Sindarin. Anyone?

I know where you can learn Quenya:Quenya Course
And here you can learn a bit of Sindarin
Sindarin Dictionary
Hope it helps!

I know a really good site if you“re interested in learning the (very difficult) grammars!

Here it is:

Celebźl, the site you posted is the main site for the Quenya course...just so you know.

And by the way, Starbreeze, that link no longer works...I clicked on it and all I got was an error message in French.

Does anybody know what happened to a website where you could download a Sindarin dictionary under the title DragonFlame? I got it a while ago and now it doesn't work. If anyone can tell me, that'd be great. Thanks in advance [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The Council of Elrond has a Sindarin course. It took me six times to read lesson one before it finally started to click, but if you really want to do it, this is a good place to start [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
