High Valyrian and Dothraki

‘Game of Thrones’ High Valyrian and Dothraki is a fictional language specially designed for TV-series by linguist David J. Peterson.

High Valyrian is often compared to Elvish, as it’s also well-elaborated, including phonological, and grammatical aspects of the language.

Think it’s impossible to learn those languages all by yourself? Try Duolingo and see how easy it is.

Unfortunately, there is only High Valyrian course available on Duolingo website, but it’s rumored that Dothraki will also be there soon.

Elvish

Elvish languages are much older than those mentioned above, but it still worth checking out, especially if you’re ‘Lord of the Rings’ fan.

J. R. R. Tolkien designed many languages for his characters – Elves and Orcs. All of them became really popular among people of our time. Quenya and Sindarin are even legally stated languages.

Duolingo hasn’t elaborated special courses for Elvish languages, but you can learn it with help of dictionaries and websites full of useful information. For instance, wikiHow, Quenya101, and Council of Elrond.
