In the pre-LotR period, it wasn’t even called Sindarin, but “Noldorin”!

Still, even with all the complications, I think the concept of a Quenya course would be quite fascinating. I would even help develop the LOTR languages when they start being made.

Hebrew – various translators. The Tolkien Estate will probably have to give it an okay, but after that a short course would be viable.

Actually, even though it is more of a code that a language, I can read gnomish from Artimus Fowl without a key. Even the Quenya words for twelve and boy are not specifically attested, but simply educated guesses. Nothing wrong with made up languages, provided they are not the only one apernder learn and that is only an opinion.

It would be very interesting to see a Quenya course added.
