      Quenya is a lot easier to learn than Sindarin (and I do mean a lot) and
      we know more about it's grammar and have more vocabulary for it, also,
      what you learn about Quenya will help you learn Sindarin later on if
      that's what you want. Take a look at the Sindarin article in the link I
      give below, and you'll see what I mean :)

      At http://www.uib.no/people/hnohf you'll find all you need! Check it
      all, links included (the Elfling list is a good place to learn).
