Kaltx'i ma smuktu,

Some projects like Ngaynume has been quiet because most people became increasingly busy with real life. But it does not mean it is dead.

I am creating this topic in an effort to help organizing and gathering people and information to help Tirea Aean organizing a new Ngaynume session for this winter season.

It seems like there is a sufficient number of people that are unexperienced in Na'vi, but that are "interested in the language" and willing to learn it and speak it. Ngaynume can be the answer as the project offers some informal lessons where participants can learn while having fun with an already built program (inherited of the previous Ngaynume sessions).

There are now numerous experienced and more or less fluent Na'vi speakers in the community in several time zones. The participation of experienced Na'vi people will greatly help to transmit their knowledge to people like me who have almost no solid knowledge of vocabulary and grammar rules.

There are also ready-to-use platforms that can be used for this learning : TeamSpeak 3 and a new learning tool I host. In case one of the services are down, anyone can connect to the LearnNa'vi IRC channel.

We now have a lot of tools and people who are experienced. There are also people willing to learn. So let's get things started and organized to renew the experienced.

This page lists the people who are interested to participate to Ngaynume on a regular schedule. Everyone should have the time either to help or to learn the language, side by side to everyday life and work if this is properly organized.

Organization according to GMT timezones should help participants to join at hours that are convenient for the majority with teachers of a similar timezone, helping to sort out organizational difficulties.

I might be interested in learning, free-time, time-zones and fate allowing ;)
I wouldn't mind extending my use of the language a good deal more, but I'm very busy at the moment.

Do you want me to add you to the list then? There might be a couple of weeks before it actually starts, the time to plan and sort things out.

NB : Your forum avatar is just totally appropriate.  ;D

Thank you, ma Tsmuktengan.

Add me to the teacher's list.

I wonder if we can do some planning and hook up with Numeyuä Atan as a means of doing it this year instead of Teamspeak or IRC

EDIT: I have just done a bunch of email evangelism with the following message to ALL who have filled out the signup form at http://projectngaynume.com (http://tirearadio.com/signup.html)

Quote
Kaltxì!

I am pleased to inform you that it is very possible that Project NgayNume will rise from the ashes and launch again this winter. Are you still interested in joining? Feel free to reply to this email with yes or no. if you would like to no longer be emailed, simply do not reply.

If you reply with yes, your name will be added to the winter launch roster.

Done. :)

It would be a good idea if several people around the world are able to connect and talk without any issue, showing by the way how it works. I just want to make sure the machine and bandwith, which are supposed to be far sufficient, work for everyone.

Hasey.  :)

Marked 'Russia' as this is where you currently are. This is not that important anyway (just pleasant to see the diversity of people participating).

Kaltxì ma frapo!

It's nice to see NgayNume slowly rising itself from the oblivion :)
Responded Yes to the Tireayä Aean mail storm, as I definitely want to participate.

Although there is already some knowledge of Na’vi in my head, knowing something and ability to teach it are two different things. So please, enlist me as numeyu, and I will try both to absorb new knowledge and to help others to do so as well.

Wou, good old times are returning again? I'm insterested too, of course. Although I have some knowledge of the language, learning is never bad, and Ngaynume worked very amusing way. Maybe I'm able to help to the teacher, but I'm saying it silently

Hmmm... Seems that our Czech Section is again in the PNgN grid. :D And to be honest, I'm really glad we three are there. :D Remember ours post-lesson talks? :D

I got the email, and I "might" be interested in learning. I would have to look at my schedule and times and such...  (GMT - 7)

Listings updated.  :)

It is realy great to see all you joining. This is actually very encourageing, as it is always better to practice and improve as a group (at least this is what I think).

Hmm, we need an extra karyu.

Though I have followed the lessons about a year ago already, I'm willing to do them again. If it's set on a decent day, and time, though.

Actually, that would be an interesting thought; if gay Na'vi would actually mate, or just run off in the bushes for a little bum-fun!

Good idea! It's hard to work with so many different time zones...
