Are there peoples of the Iberian penninsula here who would enjoy learning or
sharing Spanish with others?

(andmore!)


 Ormsa an locht, I gladly take the blame for this, and would encourage
anyone with even the faintest interest in learning this wonderful language
to attend.

Also, if there are other tongues which tickle your fancy, have them in mind
to bring up at this meeting. I have already confessed on many fronts that I
am that most terrible of wordy rogues, a linguist, and one who welcomes the
opportunity to explore any new forms of communication which present
themselves (even the nonverbal ones).

An duine uasal Yagyu is taking steps to bring Irish alive in our kingdom. I
have also heard the echos of an interest in Welsh, and furthermore I have
resources and some experience with Cornish. All told we represent a fair
portion of both branches of the Insular Celtic tongues. (Now if a Pict comes
into the picture I just don't know /what/ might happen!)

While I hope to work closely with those of you who choose to come out to
Benbrook, I know too there are others who find the journey too trying at
present. It is therefor my hope to branch out into the heart of Steppes and
nurture this enthusiasm for language further. It will be interesting to see
what comes about should Elfsea represent the Goidelic (Irish/Gaelic/Manx)
side of things, while Steppes follows the Brythonic (Welsh/Cornish/Breton
and... mrrr... Pictish/Cumbric *wince*) branch. However, there is no time or
place yet in mind for such a meeting, nor will there be until we see how
this Irish bit turns out.

Sewenna, gon kowetha!
