For the ultimate 'Game of Thrones' fan, How to speak Valyrian

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: As the popular U.S. television series 'Game of Thrones' comes to an end, the creator of the show's unique languages - Dothraki and High Valyrian - is helping fans learn key phrases.

Linguist David J.

Peterson won the chance to create the language for season one and was hired back for season 3 to form Valyrian.

"The full basis of the language was just the words and phrases that George R.R.

Martin created.

I didn't reference any other languages.

I mean after I included all of his material I built it up in a way that I thought book readers and George R.R.

Martin himself would expect and appreciate.

But other than that you don't need to make reference to other languages, you can just do your own thing." Peterson said he first started with the sound system so it's not all the sounds in the language but all the ways it can be combined together to form syllables and syllables to form words.

Fans will now be able to go onto the Duolingo app to learn how to speak these specially made language for free.

The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO on April 14.
