Online Yiddish Course

העלא! I have found a Yiddish course online that you might find of use. I know the Yiddish course in the incubator has been inactive for a while now, and people have expressed in Yiddish. This course can give you motivation to learn Yiddish further once the tree is released at some point

The course provides a video and grammar tips with each lesson. What surprised me the most was how simple the language really is. From what I have studied thus far, the grammar is easy to pick up on and has similarities to English(Both are Germanic languages) If you have any other resources to learn Yiddish or are a native speaker, feel free to add your resources in the comments!

Here's the link to the course, we should preserve and keep Yiddish alive!

Thanks, I was taught Yiddish in university, but had little or no resources to really keep it up. We were taught East Yiddish, although in the Netherlands West-Yiddish was spoken. My teacher was one of the last native speakers of West-Yiddish, no idea if there are any speakers of that variant alive today.

The book we used was: Jiddisch, Das Abenteur einer Sprache. by Salcia Landmann.

It has some history, a lexicon and some original texts in them, some in Latin script and some in Hebrew script.

I went on youtube inspired by your post. I found a lot yiddish songs and other stuff and also this curious post. A chinese-yiddish song:

Thank you for sharing! That website looks very useful. I still haven't given up hope that Yiddish will be on duolingo one day, but it seems that day will be later rather than sooner.

Thank you! I have an older friend who knows it, and now has no one to talk with. She teaches me a phrase here and there, but I don't know enough to be her conversation partner. I'll check this site out. Have a lingot!
