About the Georgian alphabet: I have a friend who works in the Dutch Embassy in Tblisi, her name's Ia and she's taught me some basic Georgian, this is all I know...

Gamarjoba
Rogor xar?
Naxvamdis!

She mentioned that because Georgian doesn't use the Roman alphabet, these words are only approximate spellings.

Is there a right or a wrong way to spell Georgian with Roman characters? Is it often written with this alphabet?

Hi tmoon
Your writing is almist correct.
Native Georgians always missuse X. instead of KH we write X as Russians would do. For ex: Nikita Khrushchev. We would spell Xrushchev - clear mistake.
So,
"Rogor xar" should be "Rogor khar" or "Rogor har" (How are you?)
"Naxvamdis" should be "Nakhvamdis" or "Nahvamdis" (good bye).
Cheers,
David

Traveling to Tblisi in April: I need help understanding how to begin learning basic Georgian. I downloaded a simple program with some words but am having difficulty with the sounds and recognizing the words in script. How do I start?
