That's a pretty neat idea, thanks. I've bookmarked the site in case I decide to get one.

Same counts for me. I was actually pretty good in French getting mostly 8's and 9's (on a scale from 1 to 10), however, it faded away pretty quick. So now my German is way better than my French. I can mostly read French, and speak a few words, but not more than that.

Yeah, in the beginning I had higher marks for French. Last summer, during a layover on Paris Charles de Gaulle I tried my French by asking something. It didn't really work out though. My German, however, is way better. I had a party in Germany in June and I spent the whole evening talking with some German guy, without too much difficulty

My French also sucks, I've forgotten most of it. However, my German has greatly improved after just reading Austrian teletext every day. I'm much more self-confident speaking it than I used to be.

Yeah, lots of Dutch (including myself) use the Dutch word as German when they've forgotten the German word. Just don't use "Bellen" in Germany (bellen = dutch for calling/using the telephone), or else people will stare at you

Languages! One of my favourite subjects. I'm born and raised in Sweden with Moroccan parents so I've got four languages almost for free. I speak Swedish, English, Moroccan Arabic and French fluently (even though I had to study French in school). In high school I studied German at an advanced level and through my knowledge of French and my love for Spanish football I've managed to learn Spanish too. When abroad I always try to speak with the natives in the local language, so I've picked up some Portuguese too from my visits there even though my glossary sometimes becomes blurred with the Spanish.

why to learn so many languages?

english is quite a good common language, everybody should learn that...
for an ordinary people its quite enough...

(of course if you want to be an interpreter, translator or want to work abroad you have to learn that specific language...)

here in hungary students have to learn two languages in secondary school...
IMO they should have to concentrate their energy only onto english...

only students on language branch should have to learn more than one language...

Are you some kind of a mini dictator? I agree with you about English though.

Interesting... which two languages must students learn in Hungary?

Here in Latvia, students in school have to learn two languages - English and students choice between Russian and German.

Yeah, it's a shame that in developed countries like Germany, France and Spain so few people speak more than a few words English... They should look at countries like Netherlands or Denmark where most people speak English that's beyond beginners grade.

Some English people have once said about the Netherlands: "Oh yeah, the Netherlands, that's where people live that speak better English than we do"

In some cases they're right. What we learn is British English, and not a weird English accent

Is it true that 90% of people in NL speak English? And is it in most cases BrE, or AmE?
