I've just read it. I have nothing to give you in order. I mean, i am lack of sources,materials. Its hard to find it in my city. The other cities are okay, but languages like icelandic,greenlandic are hard to find. Maybe in university libraries. :D :D Even if i got, i wouldn't disturb you, because i'm a dabbler. :D I think, i'll be just watching you two how you learn this hard language and improve day by day. :lol:

Aluu ilaana! :D Qanorippit? Kalallisut oqaluttarpit? Ajunngeqaaq! Kalaallit Nunaanniinnikkuuit?

What books and stuff do you work with? Are you in contact with Greelanders? This is starting to be really cool here :waytogo:

As you may have seen, I've been posting some introductory stuff and I'm going to continue that regularly (a few times a week), but please feel free to post your own things as well, it can only do good as a supplement and repetition for the beginners.

Would it be possible for you both to post bilingually? ^^

Awww, sorry Stacy! :D Well, I suppose we'll have to figure something out, like, we'll have one topic for posting in Greenlandic only, and maybe another one for bilingual posts...
