Vahn 101

Next weekend, I will be aiming to begin a course centered around teaching Vahn to beginners. For those who may not have heard of Vahn, it is a constructed language with some unique features, including it's oligosynthetic nature, and syllable synthesis structure.

Class Will be starting on the weekend after I have enough signups to feel it justified. Hopefully the weekend starting on the 14th of June. I'll be sending the details of the teamspeak server as well as specific times through skype, so add me to express your interest (details bellow). All lectures will be recorded and posted on youtube so you can view them in post or to catch up.
