Isn't French incredible complex when it comes to grammar? tongue.gif


I have French in school, and it is AWFUL. rolleyes.gif I like the language but the grammar is awful. A rule applies to 51% of the words ... and 49% are exceptions. laugh.gif

I took German in high school. That was many years ago but I still remember a few things. It was pretty difficult, but I had a decent teacher so that made it a little easier.

I find it funny, but I remember learning more German from Frank Zappa's "Joe's Garage" albums than I did in school. laugh.gif

All I know in German is automobile related. I worked as a mechanic at an Opel garage, and I was asked one day to retrofit a remote controlled diesel pre-heater with cabin controls and timer on, not original. And they said "Here is your german instruction book, now go" I haven't ever had a single word of German .. But I had to guess my way and it went quite well happy.gif All I know is words like "Heizgerät" "Slauchschelle" "Kraftstofspympf" "Personkraftwagenunterstellungsplatz" ..

If your puzzled by German, go to war with learning Danish then.. Nothing is phonetic, the verbs don't make sense and we don't regular or irregular articles, they differ to each word and theres no rules for it.

Example: a train = et tog , a dog = en hund .. "a" is "et" to a train in Danish, and "en" to a dog .. And you just have to know .. It's all like that.. happy.gif

You should definitly start out by learning Swedish... I mean, the word genre is pronounced like Sjanger, though it should be pronounced like genre (if you follow the rules)

In some areas of Sweden you remove the R from some words like, farfar (grandfather on the fathers side, fathers father really..) being Fafa, morfar (mothersfather directly translated) being mofa.

We also have two different types of R, one made deep in the throat, like the root of the tounge, and then we have the R made by the tip of your tounge. Which one you use is up to you but the deep one is more south and the tip of the tounge is like more to the north.

We have two words for a and an (just like in enligsh, but they aren't based on any rule); en & ett. en bil (a car), ett äpple (an apple), en apelsin, ett apelsin (an orange, can be both en and ett) etc.

and is translated to och, och is pronounced ock.

it's bullshit really, but who cares biggrin.gif

Good thing I won't be learning those anytime soon, and good thing they are confided to relatively small populations! I think I will stick to Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, and maybe branch out into other romance languages and sino-tibetan languages because they are so similar to eachother, hell I could read some Japanese writing just because I know so many Chinese Characters, and all nouns and many other words have the exact same character in Chinese and Japanese. I think I'll keep the Scandanavian languages to themselves up North.
