I'm a bit disappointed in the diversity of languages here as well, but whatcha gonna do?
I do intend to learn some Amharic some day. It's just too awesome of a language.

I wanna ask you if Amharic is very difficult if you know already some Arabic & (Biblical) Hebrew?
EDIT: I'm bit disappointed about the ammount of African languages represented on Unilang... It doesn't look like a lot of people are interested in them, neither studying them...

We'll see how that looks! If there are any resources I come across that I can pass onto people who are reading this thread, I'll definitely do so! I agree that we do need more forums (but also more native speakers and resources) for African languages.

Why can't there be a good textbook out there?
