The Guild of Instructors is starting the next round of D'ni 101 Language Lessons beginning Friday, March 9, at 21:00 KI time.

There will be a second class starting on Saturday, March 10, at 10:00 KI time for those who live in Europe or for whom the Friday night class is too late or too early.

These will be the D'ni 101 classes.

The 101 class consists of six lessons, one per week. We will meet in the Guild of Instructors Hood. The first lesson is on numbers and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Lessons two and three will take about an hour, each. The remaining three lessons will take between thirty and sixty minutes.

Those interested in learning the D'ni language need only to show up for the first class. If you are unable to attend, send a KI mail (BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR KI NUMBER IN THE MAIL!!!) to shokhootahn Rehn (KI# 80428) and we will work out a time that is appropriate for us both.

I'm a little confused with your post. You say anyone wishing to learn the Dni language need only to show up for the first class but the first class/lesson is about numbers. Can you clarify this for me? Thanks.

Numbers are part of the language. Don't worry, it's as easy as fah, bree, sen (1, 2, 3). ;)

Didn't know that. I guess I really do need lessons. :)

Like Tai'lahr said, it's all part of the language. Here is the class syllabus:

Lesson 1: numbers (D'ni numbers do not look like Arabic numbers)
Lesson 2: letters (the D'ni letters look different than Roman letters and are in a different order)
Lesson 3: time (a D'ni hour is longer than a surface hour)
Lesson 4: adjectives, adverbs, vocabulary
Lesson 5: verbs, vocabulary
Lesson 6: prefixes for articles and prepositions / grammar

I hope that makes it less confusing. :-)
