I'm interested in learning the Basque language, my ancestors were Basque and it's considered a vulnerable language. Are there any site out there that are good at teaching the Basque language?

A fascinating group with an interesting language that seems to predate the arrival of the Indoeuropean languages to Europe.

Good luck trying to learn it. Don't know of any sites that teach it. Though that guy who does the "Lang Focus" channel on U Tube could get your sponge wet.
