Ok, so we have a lot
of resources for learning Sarus, right? But they're kind of all over the place at the moment! We've got a dictionary, an old forum, a translator, an examiner... not to mention the official lessons page which will one day be the ultimate textbook for the language! But we all know Adam is super busy, so until he finds time to keep working on it (after retirement maybe?
) we can try to compile our resources for those who are done with the beginner courses. So without further ado, I present...

Laroon has been working on this comprehensive guide to the language. It's very in-depth and has practice exercises! Currently it's about 1/3 completed and covers most basic words. Don't miss this excellent resource!
Probably out-of-date resources
These are some of the older resources for the language, so a few of the words and grammar structure may be different. Just keep this in mind and the dictionary close at hand so you don't get confused, especially with the basic words and prefixes! They can be handy resources if you're ready to go into intermediate lessons, but be sure you are well-versed in the basic vocab first.Old Forum
An amalgamation of discussion on the development of the language. Translator
Handy little tool that translates between Sarus and English (Sarus used to be called B525, in case you're wondering)Examiner

If you find anything that's definitely out of date, or if you have new links to add to the toolkit, post them here! Alternately, if you have ideas for how to better organize the wealth of information we have, feel free to suggest it here as well. Soruf domis also has a great thread
on how to study and learn the language; be sure to visit there to get ideas for how to use the Toolkit most effectively in your studies.
