Back in highschool, I was very good in French (not fluent though, especially not in the grammar), but I lost it nearly all.

However, reading some French wikipedia got it all back quite quickly

I'm getting into the numbers right now, which isn't that easy.

nineteen-ninetynine is mille-neuf-cents-quatre-vingt-dix-neuf for instance

The republic, of course. Though Dominica is a republic too.

PS: I see you're not interested in Pakistani highways.

Thanks for warm welcomes

Since I'm in the middle in examination session (you know time when students have their exams... It's called "sesja" in Polish, I don't know appropriate English term) and I should be learning, some massive spamming should occur tomorrow

And the smiley rocks.

'night.

actually, the best numbers are those containing 70 and 90 (because, for those who dont know, in french after 69 (sixtynine) comes 610 (sixtyten)

I've lost all my French as well, though I only stopped learning it about 9 months ago. I stopped with German the same time, but my German is still the same as it was back then

fuzzyLlama, I wouldn't worry about your English, everything you wrote was understandable and flowed quite nicely. Welcome! It's great to see so many people on this section of ssc.

I'm still in the old system, so I had French 1 and German 1. Both last until the fifth year. In the new system there are no more 'divided' subjects, so you have to choose either French or German, depending on your 'profile'. In case of N&T you are forced to have German AFAIK. I'd have liked to have German (the whole subject) and quit French, but unfortunately I couldn't do that


Sorry everyone for this Dutch highschool jargon, but I guess that Niels will understand it
