I have some free time at the moment, and am going to start to learn Pali based on Bhikkhu Bodhi's lectures. Gair and Karunatillake's book seems essential, but I wonder about other resources. I have studied languages before so I don't feel I need to refresh my grammar (unless you feel it would be good?), so Collin's Pali grammar might be unnecessary. There are so many resources, so what is recommended? A dictionary, for example, would be useful, be there are several online. I hope to use this forum to help me along, may it be an enjoyable and fruitful journey.
