    Default Sumerian Language Project

    Hey everyone,

    I recently have begun a new mini-project. I am creating a Sumerian language course, for anyone that is interested. I'm creating this because materials to learn Sumerian are generally hard to find and I think it would be cool if people had more knowledge about the first written language.

    The course is structured in a simple and easy way that anyone can learn. The focus of the course is vocabulary and grammar, not cuneiform. Cuneiform takes years to master, so someone just planning on dabbling in Sumerian wouldn't want to or need to learn the cuneiform signs. If you're an aspiring Assyriologist/Sumerologist like me, then you'll already be ready to read tablets once you do learn the signs!

    It's still a work in progress, so I still have A LOT to add. I may be editing and changing the current levels, sometime in the future in order to improve the course, so don't be surprised if I do.

    Anyway, here it is: http://www.memrise.com/course/682611...tory-sumerian/

    I have just begun so there's not much yet, but tell me what you think of it so far.

    Also, please tell me which ancient language I should add next. I'm thinking about either Syriac or Akkadian.

    Akkadian is a lot cooler, closer to proto-Semitic and of far more significance in studying and understanding the Sumerian language, so I'd go with Akkadian if I were you.

    Syriac is only useful if you want to understand early Christianity.

Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries
