Of course it's a long road; my "well done" was for the fact that you're taking on learning a different script. Most people balk at the idea of learning a language written in English script!
I used flash cards to get Devanagari characters down. I'd end up staring at the letter on the card and saying the sound associated with it over and over and over. That helped me...perhaps it can help you with Gujarati!
Old is gold, though new is pretty good, too. Filmi music obsessive. Hopeless romantic. Amateur Raj Kapoor scholar. I have a blog; click here to read it.
I took a look at Gujarati script out of curiosity because of your thread here, Dancelover. I was curious as someone who can already read devanagari and who has noticed, like Emily mentioned, that I can easily read several words in Gujarati even though I never studied it. The letters that are different from devanagari seem to me to be more elaborate, hence, more difficult. That's just my opinion, though, I think it's great you're picking it up. If you ever do become interested in learning to read Devanagari, though, I highly recommend this site. I wish it had been available when I was learning...
As an aside, the line at the top of devanagari words reminds me of the line at the bottom of English on a ruled sheet of paper. In fact, when writing on lined paper in devanagari, you just write from the top line down, and when you're done your piece, particularly when time is of the essence like in a test in essay format, you go back and write the lines in at the end with a ruler. It's not as distracting as all that.
