    The actress said she learned the basics of the high Valyrian language. “I was lucky because I had a big High Valyrian monologue, but I didn’t have lots of dialogue sections in it“, she said.

    Being an operational language, Emma said “it’s really satisfying to unpick the thing.” They would receive the English translation of the High Valyrian, along with “a phonetic translation, and then also audio recordings, and one [method] would be to try and parrot back the audio recordings.”

    The actress was also able to use gestures mentioned in the language to “embed meaning into unfamiliar language.” She said she can order food or call a cab in that language.
