French - 30% (I understand most of it, but when they speak insanely fast, I'm as lost as when Muris shreds

As for English: I can easily talk with islanders, but I have some problems with understanding Americans...

That's interesting, David. I would have sworn that English was your first language. What language do you think in?

I think you guys have more opportunities to talk to people who speak different languages than we do here in America. I did however live in the Southern USA for 3 years and it was almost like talking to someone who speaks a different language.

Norwegian, a side version of Norwegian called "Nynorsk" (New Norwegian is the direct translation to English), English and a German that is still under development tongue.gif Tolek can tell how good I am at the last mentioned biggrin.gif

I was in the USA last summer, and I was surprised that they didn't even learn a second language. blink.gif As you see, we have to learn 3 languages + a different version of our mother language! dry.gif

German (and Austrian and Swiss dialects, which are different to regular German), English and French, some Dutch (I live in the Netherlands for 3 1/2 years now, so I picked up a bit)..

I did learn Latin in school for about 7 years which helps me understand a bit of Spanish and Italian, but here i wouldn't say that I actually "speak" those languages smile.gif

Pfft! Any self respecting scandinavian knows that danish is impossible to understand or speak if you're not really drunk and have a half potato down your throat.

LOL

You won't believe this....one of my colleagues said THE EXACT same thing today, when we had this discussion. Of course, he was reffering to both Norwegian and Swedish instead, but the same thing with a potato. laugh.gif

I really think that it's the same for all three countries. smile.gif
