I have been interested in obtaining audio tapes to learn Georgian and I 
came across one source.  I'm posting this in the newsgroup because it may 
be of interest to others.  

Below is an e-mail response I received from my inquiry. I'm not 
necessarily endorsing this company (and definitely not advertising for 
them).  As I said, I just wanted to pass on the information.  If anyone 
has already purchased this course or knows of other audio sources, please 
let me know at  It's darn hard learning the alphabet by 
only reading about it from Aronson's book!!

-------E-mail follows:

This course represents a departure from our programs in that it is 
specially designed to teach how to read Georgian literature.  It is 
intended for beginners and starts by teaching the unique Georgian 
alphabet and basic pronunciation. The reading and translation passages 
have been selected from both classical and modern Georgian publications 
and are recorded on the cassettes.  Developed by Professor Howard I. 
Aronson, University of Chicago.  4 audio cassettes (3-1/2 hours) and 
580-p. text, $99.50.

Order #SGG150.
