Since there are so many people from different parts of the world at GMC, why not use this to our advantage, and learn something new in a different language? If you know some things that would be helpful, feel free to say them and their English and/or other language translation. Ill start with greek, since my entire family is from Athens.


Pou = (Pronounced like spelled) = Where
Eimai = (Ee-meh) = I am
Einai = (Ee-neh) = It is
Eisay = (Ee-seh) = You are
Ekei = (Ek-ee) = There
Piato = (Peea-toe) = Plate
Pou Eimai = (Pou, Ee-meh) = Where am I?
Pou Eisai = (Pou, Ee-Seh) = Where are you?
Ti Einai Afto = (Tee - Ee-neh Ahf-toe) = What is this?

If anyone is interested I'll add more, this is just to get it going.


(Note: These aren't the actual Greek spellings, it's just the easiest way I could write it out in an English font.)

Then Me Niazi = (Then-Meh-Knee-Ah-Zee) = It doesn't matter/bother me
Nedo = (Neh-ro, rolled R) = Water

and now ill introduce norvegian! the coolest language in the world IMO!
if youre a Black metal fan you might find this verry interesting.
Norway have 2 different languages(3 with saomi), but ill only use the most common for internationals.

Hei - spelled the same way as - hi
hadet - spelled (ha-de) - goodbye
Bil - spelled (beel )- car
Vann - spelled (van) - water
Fjell - spelled (Fyell)
fjord - spelled (fyords) - inlet i think
djevelen/fanden - spelled (dyevell-en/fann-den) - means the badguy down in the basement.
Mørket - spelled (murk-et) - the darkness


basic grammatics:
I/jeg er
You/du er
he/han er
she/hun er
it/det er
We/vi er
you/vi er
They/de er

I know this was a typo but it's:

Kak papast V...(without "e")

...and it also depends on what you are asking for. If it's a country than "v" will work.

Some german ones, at first the most important one:

One beer please = Ein Bier, bitte
Hello = Hallo
Goodbye = Tschüss/Auf Wiedersehen
Guitar = Gitarre wink.gif
How are you? = Wie geht es dir ?
You look good = Du siehst gut aus
Whats your name? = Wie heißt du ?
How old are you? = Wie alt bist du ?
Where are you from? = Wo kommst du her?
Girls = Mädchen
Women = Frauen

Clearly, you consider the most important words to be those useful for meeting chicks at a bar. I won't argue.

That was the language that i took in college. German seemed easy, at least easier than other language. I feel that the most fundamental words in English tend to have German roots, rather than those coming from the Latin based languages. I have been learning Spanish the past few years, and really, there seem to be far fewer words in Spanish where I can discern it as related to an English word. In German it seemed that I could identify a English word related to about half of the German words. Maybe that is the fault of ancestors of the Scandinavians here. I assume the Latin language basis in English derives primarily from the Normans, who while French speaking, of course had Viking ancestors. Maybe the Viking'ed up the French language with a Germanic dialect, making what they melded into English more Germanic sounding. So maybe they are the reason I am having such a hard time learning Spanish.

I got a similar feeling German, and it was solidified learning some few words of Dutch as well - I believe that English is about half way between the two. Problem with Dutch is the spelling. If you can get through that to the way the words arte pronounced it makes a lot more sense. Sometimes if you only half listen, you can understand Dutch phrases in their entirety. My favourite example (and very useful in business) is:

Dot is niet meen problem (almost certainly got the spelling wrong)

Pronounced something like:

Dot is neet mine problaym

"That is not my problem"
