Well, it's time for my official comeback, so here it is! :))) Hi everyone! After one week of exhausting holidays (three family visits, an evening in the restaurant, and the afternoon to visit around to show my place of birth and growth to my boyfriend made them quite busy :))) . And I had forgotten that French people eat so much !!! ;))) ), I'm back in The Hague, and slowly getting back to business :)) . As for conlanging, unfortunately the week was too busy to do much (although I've had time to nearly finish with the numerals in Maggel), although I made it up by a good buy: I bought myself a calligraphy initiation book with a few pens included, in order to teach myself a bit of "beautiful writing". I find it will be a nice thing to enhance my conscripts (especially the Roman alphabet used for Maggel, which is strongly influenced by the Uncial. So I need to learn to write the Uncial first :))) ). Now what I have to do is find a way to adapt the method presented to my lefthandedness ;))) . Not only that, but yesterday while shopping I also bought a very cheap program with lessons to learn 35 languages (and nice languages are included in. Besides the normal: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, we find the more exotic but still common Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Hindi, Greek, Japanese, Russian, Turkish, the less common Indonesian, Finnish, Hungarian, Polish, Rumanian, Swahili, Korean, Bulgarian, Vietnamese, but also the rare - in terms of Teach Yourself methods ;))) - Irish (Gaelic), Danish, Estonian, Farsi, Filipino, Ukrainian, Thai, Zulu, etc...). The program itself is more about learning words and made-up sentences, but it has a grammar part, a culture part about the language itself and its speakers, and besides the normal recording and playing of your own voice, a voice recogniser for some common languages to correct your mistakes. I find it quite a good buy for only 8 Euros :) . So as you see, this week was not completely unproductive :)) .
