seems to be very enthusiastic. I rather recommend to start with the
Tolkien's work itself - the books. There are articles published in
Tolkien-concerned journals (Vinyar Tengwar or Parma Eldalamberon, for
example) too. I would recommend you study Tolkien, not a Tolkienian
student or scholar. Find your own conclusions, do not "just absorb"
conclusions of other students or scholars.
An enormous list of primary sources for your purpose can be found

Calwen is right. I assumed that you have already read the books and the other works and you just wanted some organized course. Also I assume that one has the ability to judge before embracing other's opinion.
I should stop giving advices according to the way I understand learning :).
Thanks for the help Calwen; I wouldn't like to induce someone in error especially when is comes to Sindarin.
