People have often asked what languages Albanian was similar with- well, it’s part of the Indo-European family of languages, but it’s the only language in the Illyric branch. Albanian.com has a good language section, you can also find an introduction to the language here and lots of Albanian language links here.

You haven’t lived until you’ve heard Albanian traditional folk music (scroll to the bottom for some free samples)!
