Ah, thank you, I wondered where it came from. Here is what I found about it: http://dictionary.reverso.net/german-english/schatzen

ŝati = to appreciate or like

not to be confused with

sati = to be full or have enough

Huh, I assumed it was from the same root as "sated" or "satisfied" (Apparently Latin satis or Old English sadian).

About the pronunciation: Does 'Ŝ' sound like s in "sugar" and 'Ĉ' like in ch in chocolate? At least I'm hearing it, I'm not sure...
