A welsh guide!

I own three books for welsh, two grammars and a book meant to teach beginner to intermediate welsh.
Sadly, I've not found any of them much help...
A guide/list of resources would be much appreciated.

Well, the cruel reality of college research is precisely whether or not you can find good resources within the time given.
I suggest selecting a language B in the wings, just in case.




There're these-

https://openlibrary.org/books/OL1146169 ... iss_German

http://www.worldcat.org/title/schwyzert ... lc/9434487

And you could do an interlibrary loan with your University's library, but I dunno how long that will take in this particular case.

I hope these may help, and you can get them in time before due date.

I know this one might be a bit weird, but how about a Polynesian language like Rapa Nui or Hawaiian? The Rapa Nui are my favourite ancient culture, and I've been trying to learn their language from Internet-based resources with little luck.

Also, perhaps Japanese.

I would definitely follow along any Malayo-Polynesian language lessons. If I had more time I would make some Maori lessons, but I really don't.

I could make some lessons about either about Standard Indonesian or Papuan Malay.

I'm actually teaching myself Samoan for fun, so in a week or so, I could cobble something together.

I know I'm more than a month late seeing this, but I think learning Yiddish would be cool, especially given what I know of German.

In reality, I think I'd be up for almost any kind of lessons, provided they were well-presented.

I've been thinking of continuing the Mandarin lessons that I started doing a while back. Is anyone still interested?

Yes. I know I haven't had the time yet to go through and make full use of them, so to speak, yet, but I personally am absolutely still interested.

I'd like to request a guide to acquiring a complex system of noun declension as a second-language learner (e.g., Czech, Icelandic) and then receiving guidance on how to create a naturalistic one from scratch (for a conlang).

Also, lessons on the Georgian verb would be awesome.

I'm learning both Mandarin and Cantonese, and I'm wondering if people here would be interested in throwing together a comparison of the two 'lects and posting them here?

I think I've said before how Waku is one of my favorite conlangs. I would love to see lessons for it.

[+1] I haven't seen much of Waku, personally, but what I have seen looks very well made and interesting.
