Background

They stated to have received several requests for klingon courses in 2012 already. Due to the continually growing presence of klingon in the media - especially The Big Bang Theory - and increasing visitor numbers at local conventions, they felt confident enough to now offer a klingon course.

Although not named on the website, the often shown pictures and presence in videos makes it more than likely that the course will be held by swiss klingonist André Müller.

Planned courses

The course is intended to have two phases: During may three crash courses with 3 hours each are offered. One such crash course will cost 80,- CHF, ie. about 83 USD. Starting september, depending on demand, a language course for beginners with ten days (20 lessions to 50 minutes) will start.(3)
