Is it hard to learn how to read and write in Gallifreyian?
It can be. It's certainly not a quick thing you can just pick up after only a few tries. I spent a couple months looking at works by other people, translating them one letter at a time. And until recently (about 6 weeks or so) I still had to have other, more experienced scribes check my spelling because I always missed a line here or a vowel there.
that sucks, cuz I wanted to learn how.
Someone should make a thing that teaches people how to read Gallifreyian.
