Interesting. That means that you can write in it, but you don't have a clue of
how it sounds?

Not at first hand.

Well, if it is really new ground, then probably it is you who should give the
advice :)

If you don't have a website, it's quite simple to create one. Go to
geocities.com, create (if necessary) a Yahoo profile, and open a website. It
provides all the tools for uploading files, too. The whole process will take
you maximum 15 minutes.
After that, hurry to send us the link. I'm quite eager to see you language.
