Welcome to Sindarin Lessons!
Greetings, wandering Tolkien fans, linguists and others.
This site is designed as a complete guide to anyone wishing to learn Sindarin, starting from the very basics of introducing yourself, right up to constructing your own names and complex sentences.
Please note that the contents of this site are often revised to reflect new updates and ideas surrounding syntax, vocabulary, etc - I use attested material (what has been written by Tolkien) wherever possible, and any extrapolations/reconstructions are always based upon rules and ideas that he came up with first.
If you are serious about learning Sindarin, I suggest you download the dictionary that I have put together by either clicking the middle link at the top right of the page, or the button above for a physical copy.
If you would like to help support me in continuing to produce content for this website, there is a donate button below; I would be immensely grateful for any support.
Disclaimer - Sindarin is a language originally created by J.R.R Tolkien, I do not claim affiliation with Middle-Earth Enterprises, The Tolkien Estate or Saul Zaentz, and all material herein is unauthorised.
