What we're about

*** NEW PLATFORM FOR THE GEORGIAN LANGUAGE: www.lingua.ge***
*** Follow us on Instagram @lingua.ge***

Georgia (საქართველო ) is one of the most ancient countries in the world with its unique culture and language. The recently discovered skull of a 1.8 million-year-old hominid in Georgia reveals the first Europeans, and it is recognized to be the second oldest after Africa.

The Georgian Culture and Language Meetup group aims to introduce Georgian culture to people of different backgrounds; to offer free classes in the Georgian language; to help people with any information about Georgia; to give recommendations if anyone is willing to travel to Georgia, etc.

I would like to find people who already have some knowledge about Georgia and individuals who are new to the Georgian culture but are open to it. I would like to show you the endless possibilities of this small country.

My background in Ancient and Modern Georgian language allows me to offer assistance with the Georgian language to scientist and linguists. I have access to certain books in Georgian and rare dictionaries that can be very helpful if you are interested in the Georgian language. Please feel free to contact me.

Exploring Georgia is impossible without ancient storytelling, history, anthropology, architecture, archeology, mythology, philosophy, literature, and many other interesting topics including politics.

Among other subjects there will be discussed the following:

* Language family tree and Georgian Language;

* Georgian folk music and opera;

* The history of vine and wine

* Georgians in the US and their contribution to the country;

* Archeological findings in Georgia and their importance to the world etc.

The group will set meetings once a month. There will be indoor and outdoor activates held; movie screenings will be followed by discussions. Printed materials, beverages, appetizers will be provided free of charge.

P.S. Please, feel free to write me if you are interested in learning the Georgian language.

Georgian Book Club

Online event

Dear friends, members, and fellow booklovers,

Georgian Book Club aims to promote Georgian literature. Only few foreigners know its history, beauty, and significance. The club's goal is to attract everyone who is interested in Georgian literary works and would love to read them in English. The best perk of the club is that we will analyze every paragraph. We will discuss the time it was written, local culture, traditions, history, etc. This, I believe, is one of the best ways to understand who are Georgian people, what they stood and lived for thousands of years.

Georgian Book Club meetings will be held via zoom once a week. The maximum number of people will be 4 so we have enough time for everyone to read and express their opinion/ideas.

We will start with one of my favorite authors Vazha Pshavela.
"Vazha-Pshavela (pseudonym of Luka Razikashvili) is one of Georgia’s greatest geniuses. His finest works are tragic narrative poems “Host and Guest” 1893, “The Snake-Eater” 1901 that combine Caucasian folk myth with human tragedy".

Online Conversational Georgian

Online event

Dear members,

We started a new platform www.lingua.ge for the Georgian language which will be completed soon.
Please follow us @lingua.ge on instagram. We will be sharing various interesting posts about the culture and language.

Online Conversational Georgian is for anyone who has some knowledge of Georgian and would like to talk. Unexpectedly, many Americans and foreigners have traveled to Georgia for business or vacation. I was pleased to meet people who taught English in Georgia and lived there for a long period. Anyone who would like to stay in touch with the Georgian language is welcome to our online meetings. Group will be open for only two people to have good results. You can also use this opportunity to ask questions regarding the language, culture, or traveling.

I offer two individual sessions for each participant.

First session starts at 7:30 pm, second session - 8:00 pm.:

Other participants can observe and listen to the class.

Participation is free.

Best,
Ninelle P.
