Publisher Description

Living Language Dothraki brings the world of Game of Thrones to life with a conversational language course teaching Dothraki, the language developed for the HBO series by language and culture consultant David J. Peterson and first seen in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. The 128-page coursebook features a step-by-step guide to pronunciation, basic phrases, easy-to-follow grammar explanation and examples, extensive thematic vocabulary lists, dialogue, and exercises for reinforcement. Living Language Dothraki also includes a one-hour audio CD of essential phrases and vocabulary so that learners can speak Dothraki with confidence. Additional notes about the language and the culture of the Dothraki people appear throughout the coursebook to give the language context.
