I took most of my “courses” and “word lists” down a couple of months ago, because I just don’t have the time to work on them, at least for the time being. I’m really overworked at my job and things won’t change anytime soon. Anyway, I’ve decided to put the courses you mentioned back online, as well as a couple of others with contributors, so they should all be up and running now. Please go to my profile page: https://www.memrise.com/user/Baas/courses/teaching/
@Baas Ah yes, I was wondering if you would like to collaborate on an Arpitan course. I currently already have an Arpitan 1 course based on Memrise’s French course. I notice that you used some unconventional writing. For example the use of pörta instead of pôrta. Was this intentional? Anyway, I am also a learner of Arpitan and am curious about helping further your efforts. I hope you may reply soon.
I made a bunch of “courses” (including “Basic Arpitan”) and published them on Memrise many years ago. I’m a pretty self-taught linguist. About two years ago, I took them down and kept them offline until recently, when I felt it was time to get them back online, so that people could get inspired somehow and end up building their own courses - something better, greater, more challenging and more accurate. Unfortunately, I don’t have free time to work on my courses (expand them, correct them) or even work on new projects any longer. Thanks for your message. Good luck.
Oh! Well, I just want to let you know it was your course that inspired me to learn Arpitan and create Arpitan 1. I think that the work you do is very inspiring and I really love using your work in order to build a base for my knowledge and understanding. Life is very busy. Arpitan 1 took me a couple of weeks to finish given school work to do. Although we may not work together, I just want to leave you with that word. Thank you once again.
@Baas - Just wondering, does your Basic Scots course include audio? I am trying to learn this language, but really need the audio piece to succeed! I started your course, but there appears to be no audio with it? Thanks, Caroline
Thank you very much! It’s great to see you around! And I must say you’re an important contributor here on Memrise. Your courses may be short, but they’re well-designed and are decent introductions to lesser-known languages.
I wonder if one day you will re-list all your courses. It’s a pity that many of them are not available now (except for those who have already enrolled in the courses). If you need any help, just let me know. I’d be very happy to be a co-contributor, if you need someone to help fix any issues in the unlisted courses.
