Today I came across this piece of news over at the Escapist, and I found it so strange that I had to share it with you. Living Language have teamed up with HBO to produce a new course to help Game of Thrones fans learn to speak Dothraki.
Getting released in October, this will be available as a $19.99 book and CD taking you through the basics of the grammar, vocabulary, phrases etc., as well as an expanded online course for $30 and a $3.99 companion app.
I am a Game of Thrones fan, and while the ability to speak Dothraki would be pretty cool, this does baffle me a bit. After all, you’re spending money and time to learn a language you can’t actually use. Like Latin. Still, the book itself will also feature things like notes on Dothraki culture, which should make it a nice piece for Game of Thrones aficionados to pick up.
Do you fancy learning the language of the horse lords?
