Okay, I'm gonna let these sit for a few days have people review them for errors then I'll upload them to youtube. Also, I could post the .avi files on another upload site if that would help?

These are extremely helpful, but your text screens flash by just a little too quickly. There are many points when you are still speaking the example, but the text has already disappeared. 

It would be more helpful if the text remained at least as long as the audio, if not lingering for a beat or two more to give viewers (as it is a video) a chance to review what they've just heard.

But please keep them coming! These are exactly the kind of learning tool a beginner like me needs! <3

I did that, in a way, on purpose as I figured that one can just pause or go back if they missed something. However, I will definitely keep this in mind for future guides.

The only issue there is that a viewer has to pause before the audio ends, interrupting the audio lesson. A couple beats of lingering video would better allow for the opportunity to pause. As it is I felt rushed and distracted from the lesson, and since it's a good lesson, I want to take it all in. :)

Just to make sure, is this for the 1st or 2nd guide (or both)?

It's not as noticeable with the second lesson as you end up leaving the dialogue up for quite a long time when you're having viewers repeat after you, but the initial conversation is a little "Ack! I didn't catch that! *wibble*"

Hmmm, yea, can't really edit that too easily so I'll have to leave that as is. I'll keep that in mind for the next videos.

Glad you found them useful. There's a lot to learn but it's not that hard. I hope to make some more of these since people seem to find these very helpful.

very well explained.
I'm still having trouble with the glottis stop, but I think it would come with practice.

How do you make it appear in red?

First you look for the icon that looks like a bubble right under the change color drop menu.
Second you insert the text between the semi brackets ex: [some code=]text goes here[/some code]
Last you insert the translation after the = sign ex: [some code=hello]Kaltxì[/some code]

and voila

I can't seem to view the link, I get a page with an error stating I don't have the right "phpshield" loaders. Not sure what that means at all.

  Kaltxì, everyone, I’m new to this site. I’ve been practicing for a few weeks on the language Na’vi and my thanks go to Ftiafpi and the Learn Navi site, and the dictionary. This is my paraghraph in the Na’vi language (may be mistakes) I added this to test you guys and girls in a translation to help you learn the language faster, have fun!
