The TV series The Expanse introduced Lang Belta, a Creole from space blending languages from all over Earth with a unique culture of the Belt. Hanne Madeleine Gates Paine (Iro) led this panel, “The Expanse: Learn Lang Belter—the language of the Belt (2nd Level),” Friday night in Marriott M301. Even though the series is complete, developing the language evolves and continues on.
Now that participants have learned some Lang Belta, it was time to learn a bit more. This class was a second/intermediate class that continued on where the Level 1 class ended, where participants immerse themselves in the culture and conversation of the Belt. The class was spoiler-free and required no Expanse knowledge, just a willingness to learn something new.
