Re: how to learn Klingon without books

Gábor asks:

really helps me is:
- Having two jobs hence earning more money than most people in my
- Being single and childless hence having fewer financial obligations
- Having a credit card
- Being determined .... Correction: Being nuts. {{;-)

Good luck, Gábor! If you want it badly enough you will find a way to learn
