Fictional Languages You Can Actually Learn Right Now

Language is the fabric of the world. In pop culture, invented languages bring fictional worlds to life, teaching us about their culture. Spoofing the ‘90s language program Muzzy, we spotted a Game of Thrones video parody that teaches children how to speak Dothraki (featured after the break). If you want to take things a step further and actually learn the language, there’s a tutorial for that. We found other language lessons online – all videos teaching fictional dialects inspired by pop culture favorites. Start speaking High Valyrian, Klingon, and more, below.

Become one with the Khal by learning a little Dothraki. The language featured on the HBO series Game of Thrones was inspired by author George R. R. Martin’s description, but also fragments of Turkish, Russian, Estonian, Inuktitut, and Swahili. Follow the YouTube links in the below video to further your lesson.
