How to learn Adyghe?
How to learn Adyghe if there are so few resources available? Online self-studying Adyghe seems very hard. We would advise getting our "English-Acehnese vocabulary notebook" and fill in the blanks and the empty pages with the help of native Adyghe speakers. We would also advise trying to search learning materials in Russian and maybe Turkish and other languages that are spoken in the areas where Circassians live currently.
