Agreed! I didn't realise till this moment how badly I needed the futhark on here...

Edit: or hey, would Icelandic have it?

The fuþark version would look different (ᚦ vs þ)

Yes, Icelandic does have it. Otherwise, if you're on a Mac, add the US Extended keyboard layout, and then it's option-t. þ

My Spanish is so poor that getting my level two was like putting my brain through a mincer! Until Catalan is offered from English, Russian, Esperanto, maybe French? (I mean come on, that's four whole choices), I think mine will stay where it is.

(I'm imagining learning Catalan via Russian. That would be pretty wickedly random :D)

Why not revise your Spanish in the meantime? There's only so far you can go by endlessly completing trees but not building on the knowledge you have gained.

You caught me. *Guilty* {@style=color: red; font-style: normal;}

But only for now - when I'm done refreshing my Spanish tree around February next year, I'll switch it out of my schedule for Catalan. Then there will be one less low level flag waving around the site.

My Spanish is OK, but not anywhere near fully fluent. So learning Catalan from Spanish is interesting, as my brain starts to melt them into each other. I think if I was more fluent in Spanish, the differences between it and Catalan would be much more obvious.

But it reminds me of a few years ago, I took a Basque course through a Spanish-language newspaper. My brain nearly exploded from that - combination of trying to process the Spanish instructions and Basque being Basque. Basque grammar punched me pretty hard in the brain.
