RE: Yet another newbie!

Elizabeth Lawrence (jiqaj@hotmail.com) [KLI Member]



I have just posted a brief video in Klingon to YouTube.  If you, as newbies, do the same, and if non-newbies join in as well, we can build a substantial amount of material to watch.  Experienced speakers will be able to demonstrate and critique the speech of newcomers, and we will be able to have real (if time-delayed) conversations.  I hope people construct video responses.
