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.
