Starting Manchu (for the second time)

Due to the kind support and organization of Sixiang Wang, David Porter and Devin Fitzgerald, I am now part of a 10 week zoom Manchu study group.

It’s my second attempt on trying to learn Manchu. And in spite of having learned multiple languages – Korean, English, Chinese, Japanese, Persian, Arabic, and German – I still don’t have a great way / tip / overall structure on learning a new language.

So for this time, I’m running my own few experiments to see how things work. Like;

  • More focus on memorization, less focus on “making sense” of the language.
  • Going all in on anki (
  • Trying to enjoy learning a new language

Not sure how this will work out, but I will probably return to review on how it went.
