Yeah... we need learning materials.

I tried to write some lessons but I kinda gave up because I didnt know how to teach pronunciations, which are both elementary and overly complex. Spiking the learning curve this early seems unreasonable to me. In the end I have no experience with language teaching, but if anyone here does and likes to help me with this, please feel free to contact me.

If you can read the IPA and dont mind overly technical descriptions  and linguistics jargon, you could try the Recomendăs (on TalossaWiki) to learn the grammar and look up words on l‘Översteir (oversteir.talossa.com) when you need them. Keep in mind though that the Recomendăs are 1) not finished and 2) not beginner-friendly, some caution is advised.

EDIT: About joining SIGN, all you need to do is announce your intention to join, and if more than half of existing members accept you (or if you were a member of the CÚG before it collapsed), you’re in. Though you’ll only really need to join if you want a say in grammar changes or whether to add new words into the official dictionary.

Let's just say in a governmental capacity, there is a strong possibility I may head up its efforts in that direction.  This alone will necessitate my joining SIGN.  I can say no more.

There's always the Memrise courses as a start:
https://app.memrise.com/course/498768/first-steps-in-talossan-1a-words-for-erteiers/
https://app.memrise.com/course/627902/first-steps-in-talossan-1b-basic-words-phrases/

Although they might need to be updated, not sure.
Those are pretty much out of date, which is why I didn't link them, and we don't have direct access to them, which is why we cant update them directly. We're currently working on a new Memrise course.

I didn't realize so much had changed in the language over the last 6 years!

We will try to salvage some of the content on the old Memrise course, but the one we’re currently developing will be more of a vocab primer for beginners

The spelling changed. For any other language that wouldnt be too noteworthy, but the spelling debates among Ladintschen were vicious, and I believe it would do learners a disservice to teach them the old spellings and potentially reheat the aforementioned vicious debates.

Honestly, I think the two absolutely huge achievements in the era of FreeDems leadership of the Government which have nothing to do with constitutional reforms are:

- upgrading Wittenberg and talossa.com;
- finally achieving "linguistic Reunision" with the Talossan 4.0 spelling reforms.

It's difficult to explain to non-Ladintschen the bitterness caused by the CÚG's Republican-excluding spelling reforms of 2007, but that's all over now. It was good to get Lord Hooligan's approval for the renewed Översteir which uses the new compromise spelling.

I'm working on an English-language Talossan ABCs song.  Where is the page which describes how to pronounce the name of each Talossan letter, i. e. in English the letter 'H' being pronounced 'aitch'?
