Crowdsourcing Georgian conversations

May 21 at 15:09

I't's not my top priority right now, but Georgian is definitely on my 'will want to study at some point' list, and I strongly suspect that it's also on the list of languages for which there's not a whole lot available in both audio and matching text for learners, especially at the sort of casual conversational level that you want when you have worked your way through a beginner's textbook and the full 60 mini stories but are still at the intermediate level and are not yet ready for full high-level literary language audiobooks.

A thing which I have started doing for Breton (which I seem to have by default ended up being the coordinating person for getting the mini-stories translated so that it can be added to LingQ) is trying to coordinate getting native or native-level speakers to have short, unscripted conversations with each other over the internet, then transcribe and translate them. Much in the spirit of the 'Podcasts met Fasulye' series that you'll find on this site if you're studying Dutch.

I would be happy to try to coordinating the same sort of thing for Georgian, but it is only fair to offer to pay people for their efforts, especially with the transcription since that's an annoying hassle, and I don't know if the LingQ staff will be keen to go out of their way to hire people for the task for such a niche language, so I though it was worth asking here: would there be a few people who might be willing to chip in so that we can offer a few native Georgian speakers a reasonable payment in exchange for creating such a set of mini-podcasts? Let me know if you'd be interested.
