Eri-blog links

I have amassed quite a collection of Eri-blogs; it would be a shame if people did not read them every now-n-then. The only thing they have in common is that they tend to be personal and are somehow related to Eritrea. A lot of them aren’t even updated regularly, but my rule is to keep their links up as long as they post more then once a year… enjoy.

Tigrinya–English Picture Dictionary

I was browsing the web when I found an excellent new e-book entitled: “Tigrinya – English Picture Dictionary” by

It’s primarily designed for native Tigrigna speakers who want to learn English, but it can work in both directions. Also since it’s a picture dictionary you get to see images of the things/descriptions/actions that are being translated and it’s available free for download. They also provide a page where you can download the individual chapters separately and another one where you can pay them to ship you a book with higher definition.

This is excellent, I recommend all Tigrigna students to take full advantage of this learning resource and also the “My Tigrinya Phrasebook” by Peter A. Crowther.

Meet Temesgen; he has made a video demonstrating how to count to ten in Tigrinya. He also has another on how to greet someone in Tigrigna. Thanks Thomas.
