I am starting this thread because a member mentioned he was interested in learning this language For those who don't know it, the ''ladino'' language is a dying language, and is the language of the Sephardic jews. I'm one of them, and this language used to be a big part of our culture, but sadly most ladino speakers are old people... and the younger generation of Sephardi Jews don't speak it. The language is basically a mix of (old) Spanish and Hebrew, but depending on where the speaker lives some words from Greek, Turkish, and Arabic are often borrowed. I am creating this thread in hopes I can add more and more resources to learn this language, not immediately but little by little, also depending on the interest of others to learn this language. If you want to know what this amazing language sounds like, then check this mix on YouTube: An interview with a native Ladino speaker born & raised in Israel:
