While playing table tennis in China I came across someone from Madagascar so I've decided to give Malagasy a go.

I wouldn't have bothered but Assimil has a new course out.  I've had it for a few weeks and have finally made a start.  Lesson one's pretty straight-forward of course but the spelling is really weird.  Half of the letters seem to be elided.  This makes it difficult to know how the words are pronounced in isolation.

Looks to be a pretty interesting language with verb object subject word order. I'm in no hurry with this language so I'll keep at the first lesson for a while.
