This was an amazing course, I wish Bob Brier would do part two! If you are reading this and wondering, it's DEFINENTLY worth your time. This course learns you how to read hieroglyphs which was used for 3500 years on statues, monuments and objects from the first Pharaoh Narmer (3100 bce) until succumbing to the Romans in 436 ce. Egyptian is by far the easiest language to learn; You don't need to speak it, there's no verb conjugations, it has an easy word order with few rules, and almost all feminine nouns just have a "t" at the end. The Guidebook (PDF) is invaluable and easy to follow with explanations, a dictionary and answers for homework, that allows you to learn hieroglyphs without being connected to the internet (*much of the last three lectures sadly isn't in the PDF, you need to see them). I highly recomend this Course, don't let this chance slip by!
