I took four years of German and two years of french and one year of farsi, so at one point i was taking three languages at the same time. it was alot of fun, and actually not too hard. you should take french. its a great language to know since parkour originated in france and especially if you plan on maybe making a "pilgrimage" to lisses at some point of your life. Also its just a beautiful and fun language. If you need any help with german let me know! I excelled quite well, it almost came naturally to me.

Knowing French would have come in handy when I talked with Yann. It's a goal of mine.

Well French is on the list without question, I just don't see it as a priority since I don't see myself going to France anytime soon (but I WILL go eventually).


I wonder if it would be easier to study French and Spanish/Portuguese if I first got a handle on Italian since it's closest to Latin (I think?). 'Cuz it seems logical that languages that are closer together might seem faster to learn... though it might backfire if they are close together since it could be confusing which is which... ?

I wrote on your wall on facebook but I'll say it here, too.

Ich hab' 5 jahr Deutsch gelernt und letzten Sommer bin ich ein Monat da geblieb'. Frag mich ob du helfe brauchen oder will etwas ueben!

(I took 5 years of German and last summer I stayed there for a month. Ask me if you need help or want to practice something.)

Also: Whoever said that Nazi crap earlier, even as a joke, it's not cool.

Two years, but my iPod changes some things because of spellcheck, and I'm a bit rusty, but oh well haha.
