The Albanian Alphabet / Vowels and Consonants
8 Lectures 33:35

The Albanian language belongs to the family of Indo-European languages. It is one of the oldest languages, yet different from the others. Albanian language seems to have kept its own features from very ancient times. The earliest text in Albanian known so far is the "Baptizing Formula", written in 1462. Historically, unified national literary Albanian can be traced to 1908, when the decision was made to accept the Latin alphabet. Since 1972, the unified literary language remains the only one used in Albania and Yugoslavia.

Each of the vowels can be either short or long  - play the video Twice

According to the number of vowels, Albanian words may consist of one, two, three or more syllables. In the Albanian language the position of the word stress is not fixed. In some words the stress falls on the first syllable: Ti=you. In others, it falls on the last syllable: Parti-a = party. There are words with the stress falling on the middle syllable: Punë-a = work. It is advisable to pay attention to the stress when memorizing Albanian words. Word stress in Albanian is more emphatic than in English; the stressed syllable is articulated with much greater force than the unstressed one, therefore lengthened.

Vowels in Albanian Language
04:03

In general, in Albanian the main stress falls on the last word of a phrase, on the last stem of a compound word, and on the last syllable of a polysyllabic word. Although this holds for the vast majority of words in Albanian, some of them do not obey this general principle.

French Teacher and Web Developer

Bonjour ! , my name is Ylber, I was born in Novosello, a small village in the south east of Kosovo, now I live in Montpellier which is a city in south of France, exciting and much more dynamic. I studied French Literature at the university of Montpellier but also English as a foreign language. I have been teaching for 5 years now in many schools and associations. I really enjoy teaching. It gives me the opportunity to learn about the different cultures around the world.

I have become a self taught, Depending on the complexity of a topic, learning something new can take a long time. And it’s bound to be frustrating as you grapple with new terminologies, new models, and apparently irrelevant information. When you are learning something by yourself, there is nobody to control the flow of information, to make sure you move from basic knowledge to intermediate and finally advanced concepts.

Keep in mind these three things :

1. Believe in God

2. be patient and

3. never give up !

Patience with your topic, and more importantly with yourself is crucial — there’s no field of knowledge that someone in the world hasn’t managed to learn, starting from exactly where you are.
I'm constantly trying to improve my teaching skills in order to satisfy the needs of my students. Internet is a very useful tool to experience new methods

I truly believe that learning new things opens the mind and allows you to be more tolerant. I’m quite open minded and flexible and always promote a positive way of learning - I like to tailor my lessons to my students’ needs so that I really can help them progress at their own place in a fun and caring environment!

My job is a passion and I look forward to share my expertise with you ! A bientôt !

I hope you enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching !
