Yessss! Come to the dark side! Learn languages without flashcards like a good language who...er...like me!

Specifically, my mind went to Maori. Perhaps it's because the setting is Ancient Polynesia? There is a song in the movie that's in what I presume to be a Polynesian language, although I'm not sure which one.
I guess Tokelauan.

I would join.
Let's do Waris!
I like what both articles said, and their logic is reason enough for me to not use Eskimo.
I use Eskimo in the term "Eskimo-Aleut languages," and I could use it for "Eskimo languages" (i.e. Eskimo-Aleut languages that aren't Aleut), but I don't use it for the people.
I don't think I've learned what the koko/soko/asoko set is.
Speaking of which, Vijay, would you be up for starting a Spanish group? Or at least helping me with one?
It would be mid-beginner/intermediate one. Saim, on his log, had made the suggestion for me to not use a didactic resource because of my level and knowledge of other Romance languages, and start using native resources. So I might try to find something similar to French in Action for Spanish. (It might be below your level, which is why I mentioned about helping me with one.)
(The story for the first episode begins about 10 minutes in EDIT: Also, you can click on CC for subtitles in English or Spanish, depending on which language is being spoken at any given time).
Btw just in case you were wondering, both this series and French in Action
at least used to be broadcast on cable TV here, and that's how I know of them.
