So, sushis, what languages are you learning? How far are you with them? Why did you pick a particular language? Do you hope to go to the motherland of that language at some point?
For me, I'm learning German. Admittedly, not on my own, but I chose it as an advanced subject at school. I think my German is alright, but any time I've gone to post on German chans or boards, it's not the best. I got called 'der Englander, der kein Deutsch kann' on one of them. Oh well, I'm still learning.
Also, ja! Erzähl mir über die Sprache, die Sie jetzt lernen!
I'm learning Japanese now. It's hard, but the feeling when you understand something is amazing. After Japanese I really want to jump into Mandarin. Just thinking of all the new people I will get to talk to make me excited.
Also japanese, as my first second language. I like the idea of hindi or russian or chinese after that. Maybe korean if im lazy, I hear korean students all take japanese cause it has a similar structure they find easy.
Thats a long way away though.
Being a native german speaker, I can't really understand what's beautiful about this language. I think in it's written form it's able to express more than for example english, but spoken it's a very hard language and doesn't feel as expressive as japanese.>>767>Die schönen Frauen haben die leckeren Süßigkeiten gegessen.
>Because of free word order, this could mean either:>The beautiful women ate the delicious sweets. OR:>The delicious sweets ate the beautiful women.
Are you sure? I'm pretty sure that this only means The beautiful women ate the delicious sweets
I'd translateThe delicious sweets ate the beautiful women.

Oh, well fair enough. I'm just going off what my German teacher told me. In any case, context is everything.
