With this free course of 5 video lessons you will learn about the most important concepts of the elven language

Within the fictional universe created by J. R. R. Tolkien and appearing in novels such as The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, there are several elven languages. Tolkien, a philologist by profession, devoted many years to the development of these languages.

He also created a writing system called tengwar that can be used to write for both fictional and non-fictional languages. An example of an elven word is Fangren, which means "warrior."

Among the most developed elven languages are:

Quenya, spoken by the High Elves Noldor.
The sindarin, typical of the Grey Elves.
