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.

Intermediary- Icelandic
Beginner- Swedish, Finnish, Welsh, Japanese, Italian
Dabbling in- Old English
Interested in- Why don´t you ask?

I really really want to do Swiss German and don't want to have to switch to another language,
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-

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.

What do people think of Yiddish lessons?

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.
