"Do you want to learn Inuktitut?"

If so, I'm in the process of creating a course on Memrise (teaching the South Baffin dialect). Feel free to check it out and also let me know what you think!

Audio would be a boon. If you transliterate the syllabary you can use this free Greenlandic TTS (I don't think there are any major phonological differences).

Greenlandic has more assimilation than more western varieties, e.g. "au" to "aa", "-kt-" to "-tt-", as far as I know.

I tried that TTS, however it pronounces some sounds differently... I'm seeing if I can work around that somehow

Thanks for the course, I've had a look at it and it's pretty good: would be better with audio. I've been wanting to learn Inuktitut for a long time now so it's great to see such a nice course come out. I've given you some lingots to show my appreciation :)

ᓇᑯᕐᒦᒃ! I'll see what I can do about audio.

Wow that writing looks so extraterrestrial, it's like those signs you see on starship controls in movies.

It's a lovely script! I've always found it very fascinating.
