Update (July 29, 2013):
AvatarMeet 2013 is now in the history books, but the memories and the new and renewed friendships are still fresh in the minds of all who attended. From all of us at LearnNavi, a huge irayo! (thank you!) to the event planners, Dr. Paul Frommer, the great folks at Lightstorm Entertainment and all who supported this year’s meetup!
Unsurprisingly, a 2014 AvatarMeet is already on the minds of the organizers, so keep an eye on the AvatarMeet website for info about next year as it becomes available!
Gillian is talking the language of Pandora, the place where the Na’vi people live in the film ‘Avatar’.
Her guest, Prof Paul Frommer, is the creator of the Na’vi language and has given Gill some tips on how to speak it. Reckons she has a natural talent!
He’ll be in Fremantle on Friday to speak at the national conference of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators.

He’s speaking at 9am. A day pass to the conference will let you in, but you must register beforehand online at http://www.ausitconference.org.
