Lesson 1: Primer 1
Welcome to your first lesson for learning Unilange! The task of learning a new language is probably taunting for some of you, but don't worry. Unilange is an artificially created language, which gives it several advantages over naturally formed languages. One big one is easiness. Unilange was created to be easier to learn. Since we created it, and it didn't evolve, everything follows a pattern (with no exceptions). That makes it a great deal easier to learn than other languages.
Your first two lessons are what we call "primers". In the primers, we give you vocabulary, and then show you example sentences with those words you just learned. For the actual vocabulary words, we teach you with pictures. With other parts of the lessons, however, we will be using English. There is no grammar taught in the first two lessons. In Lesson 3, once you've gotten accustomed to the language, we start to teach grammar and other important formalities of the language. Almost every lesson will have vocabulary words to help you become more fluent. Your first ten lessons will include the use of English when necessary. Stating with lesson eleven, however, you will be taught only in Unilange. This my sound daunting, since you're just beginning, but it will be very easy and natural by that point.
Vocabulary | Wértscha
Nouns | Nænaé
Verbs | Verbaé
To Eat | Mangèr
To See | Vyèr
Producing Sentences | Frèsaé prodüçèr
After showing you just six words in Unilange, look at all the sentences that you now can make! Don't worry if, in the sentences we show you below, you are confused over a word. That is completely normal, since we don't start teaching grammar until lesson three.
Дé mèna vyèr дé fra. | The man sees the woman.
(Day MEN-a fwee-air day frah)
Дé fra vyèr дé hæsa. | The woman sees the house.
(Day FRA fwee-air day howza)
Дé mèna ê дé fra mangèr д'épva. | The man and the woman eat the apple.
(Day MEN-a ay day fra mahng-air dep fella)
Don't worry about Д, it just makes a regular English "d" sound. You'll learn all the pronunciation rules in Lesson 3.
Are you ready for Lesson 2?
This is the shortest lesson in the course because you are only learning six words. Here is a list of what you need to know to move on to Lesson 2:
- How to spell most vocabulary words in this section.
- A general idea of how to pronounce the sentences and words that you've been taught.
