Most of us can read them a little, I can only read names & some titles & some words. Ancient Egyptian was a spoken language but it's pronunciation isn't known now.

There are books that teach you how to read ancient Egyptian and how to pronounce it, apparently. I got one for Christmas. Go check them out on an online store like www.amazon.com

Thanks! Have you read any of them? I think I might look into my library to see if they have anything. I'm kinda cheap cash-wise... Razz

the one at the top looks like mine, and it was not that hard to understand. The others were just part of the search. I just realized I put all of the search items in there, so you couldn't get more from that serach if you wanted to! Embarassed Well, all you have to do is change the search.

At first, check out some websites and learn the basics. With that you can decide whether you want to learn more.

for beginners:

this is where I learnt most of what I know:

another page:
