Interstellar Language School

The Interstellar Language School (ILS) was founded in 1994 by Glen Proechel(1), but is not active any more. The founder of it did not agree with the KLI's policy regarding the Klingon language during the translation work of the Bible and Hamlet, so he decided to establish his own project(2).

The mission statement of the ILS was to
"Promote the teaching and use of tlhIngan Hol, also known as the Alien Language, the Warrior Tongue and officially by Paramount Studios and its subsidiaries (including Pocket Books) as the Klingon Language."



The ILS had several books or projects for books to teach the Klingon language (3) (4). At this time, it is not clear how many really have been printed or published, or what they look like.
