Well Betteryouthanme, thanks for that, hope that you'll not have any headache trying to refresh your French skills… Don't worry, you know, I learned German some years at school, a long long long time ago… and I don't remember anything but some words as Konditorei, Lebensmittelabteilung, Kneipe, Danke shön and Bitte shön… Not so bad, I believe, enough to survive if I have some times in Germany…LoL ^^
Seriously, since I meet people from others countries on the web, a lot of them told me that French is a very hard langage… Additionaly, if there are mistakes, it become something as Impossible Mission, that's why I give some explanations about lyrics…
I think it depends who is learning which language. For me, a romanian, it would be easier
to learn italian or spanish. Everyone here says that, but I haven't tried.
At school, I learned French ~ 8 years, English ~ 8 years, German(Deutsch) - 4 years. Because
I haven't put any effort in learning French and German, I such at both. I can't say I know
one better than the other.
Now, I would love to learn Japanese. That would be cool.
You can say I love the languages that are spoken on islands where people have their
steering wheel on the Wrong side
I agree with you, Snowman, it depend who learn what, because langages have roots (Latin, Saxon,...)
I believe that, when we learn a new langage, the most difficult is the grammar. We can know a lot of words in a foreign langage but, if we don't master the grammar, we don't know how to use well all this vocabulary...
For my part, i have a lot of difficulties with the English grammar, i know that i make mistakes in my threads and posts and even if i got an English dictionary for helping me, it remains something difficult for me. Maybe i have to spend some times in England...?
Not sure it will please me, because i believe that the weather in England is worse than here in Brittany...!
