I would like to learn Albanian for my family

I’m half Albanian born and raised in America. My fathers from Gjakova but never taught me the language. He taught me the culture though, which I love. My dad and his siblings always speak Albanian when they get together and have to translate their conversations to me. I want to surprise them this year by learning some conversational Albanian.

I also feel bad when I meet Albanian-American women and they tease me for not learning my family’s language lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
