I began studying tlhIngan Hol late in 1993.  Attending the KLI qep'a'mey have 
been some of the greatest help.  There have not been persons in my area with 
whom I can practice.  I started teaching tlhIngan Hol every Saturday 
afternoon to House Valtev members in Westminster, Colorado.  Teaching a 
language helps understand the language.  Although only two students have made 
much progress, and that has taken over 4 years!!!, we can play some simple 
language skills games in tlhIngan Hol.  As to being comfortable translating, 
after all this time I still make many, many mistakes.  I do translate because 
it is practice.  I intend to keep practicing until I make no mistakes---but 
I'll be in Sto'vo'kor by that time.
