Gothic for Goths!

If you've ever wanted to learn a little Gothic, but wading though Wulfilas' Bible translations wasn't where you wanted to start, boy is there a site for you!

Gothic for Goths is a handful of youtube lessons (so far) with copies of the scripts, vocabularies (with grammar information) and even a video-style alphabet book for the little ones. It was created by a student of Germanic linguists who with his neighbor was making fun of "goths" - that specimen of pale, made-up teen that runs about all in black - by using the real Gothic language for things they imagined "goths" might say - "My black underwear is chafing," "Do you want fries with that?" and so forth. If you've ever wanted to say, "Where's my chupacabra?" in an medieval language now's your chance!
