I've recently joined Memrise to help me practice my Sindarin (and real-life languages, too), and I was delighted to discover that someone has taken the first six lessons from here and turned them into a Memrise course. They don't have any of the recent updates, unfortunately, but I'm still finding the course really useful for making sure what I've learned here stays in my mind.
I recently joined a group on Facebook that is dedicated to learn sindarin and I admittedly have been using your lessons as templates to teach others because they are indeed well organised and appropriately configured!and well they had no one else who could... So I'd figured I'd help them out. I made minor changes on the introductions but I never claimed them as being from myself! I hope you don't mind though, I am only spreading your teachings and some of them really are dedicated learners...

Doesn't bother me in the slightest, I just hope you give them the website/forum address so they can come here if they have any issues! (I'd also be interested in joining the group, if you/they wouldn't mind?)
I give em to those who like to learn faster than most, most didn't want to have the links, so I just post the lessons. I don't think they would mind if you joined and I certainly don't mind either, but since you already have enough to do on your own website, I'll be continuing to post the lessons but I think having a little support cannot hurt at all
I think I found another Memrise course based on this one, although there isn't any credit given and I don't think the person who made the course completely understood the lessons. Still, it might be worth checking out.
Amy: Hello! I am confused about the verb nautha-. In lesson 17 the dialog at the start has “nauthog” for “you think”, then “semin” for “I think”. Is nautha- one of the irregular verbs? I can’t find anything else it in the lessons or dictionary. Thank you!

Xandarien: Suilad! There have been two verbs used for 'to think', I apologise for the confusion. There's Nautha- 'to conceive an idea, think' and Sam- 'to think. Sam- should have been removed everywhere as it was a reconstruction that we don't need. I'll change that.

Teryn: Wow, this website is amazing! I started the lessons two days ago and I'm already using phrases with some friends of mine. Thank you sooo much for creating this, I can't tell you how helpful it is!!
