Why not utilise yourself being refreshed from the bank holiday weekend by taking up learning a new language! With the Fifth series of Game of Thrones within viewing distance, Talking Heads think the Dothraki app could help you really stand out from the bilingual crowd.
‘Athchomar Chomakaan!’ Understand much of that? Well, it’s ‘Hello’ in Dothraki, the fictional language from HBO’s juggernaut Game of Thrones and here at Talking Heads we would go so far to say that if you’re not learning the language then you’re not a true fan!
The harsh vowels and glottal sounds may make the language quite unattractive on the ears but demand in being fluent in Dothraki is rife. Luckily for us Living Language has it covered with its Dothraki Companion app. The language platform, which equips users with enough vocabulary and grammar to have a conversation in Dothraki, is available on the iOS app store.
Talking Heads love all types of language and although our ‘Love Local Lingo’ doesn’t relate to Dothraki as [SPOILER ALERT] it isn’t local to anywhere as its fictional, we still think it’s amazing that languages can just be invented.
From Klingon to Parseltongue to Pig Latin, languages are always being created and learnt with even a Language Creation Society being formed in 2007, allowing humans to divulge into different, new languages which are still in the early stages of development.
So set yourself a challenge of learning Dothraki before Game of Thrones Series Five airs [Sky Atlantic, April 13th, 9pm] and impress pretty much everyone around you.
