We can include a Swedish Forum. Do you think it'll get much activity? Surprising, really, that the French Forum is the int'l forum with the most activity. Somebody PLEASE do not tell jb.  ;)

After battling with Russian for the past few years doesn't the once-difficult looking French look SOOO easy! Especially to us Brits whose language skills consist of pointing and speaking English loudly.

My schoolboy Russian:

Ruchka moyei tyotushki na stole
Koshka moyei tyotushki pod stolom

How's that Coco?

I'm 'helping' Nadia with her German, I'd give German a 'Ste' rating of 'quite difficult'. French a 'Ste' rating of 'dead easy', Italian 'dead easy'. Russian 'bloody impossible'.

I will agree with that Ste.  I studied French for 3 years in school and had I ever had an occasion to go somewhere it was spoken for a few weeks would have been nealry fluent.   I tried to learn Italian from tapes for two weeks before making a trip long ago and could understand some of the conversations I heard.  Spanish is easy too.   I learned to read it from corresponding to a few gals in Latin America with little difficulty. 

I have been trying to learn Russian for 10 years and still don't know didly.  I have probably put 10 times the effort in learning Russian that I did French.  I can still read French quite well and can just manage an occassional sentance in Russian.  In the past year I have gotten to the point that sometimes I can follow basic conversations but not for long.

I think Hungarian is similar to Finnish - another bugger of a langauge with 15 cases (Russian only has 6) and no word for please!

Y-a-t-il possible d'avoir une Forum Ungarienne ?
Just brushed up my French by listening to it for 4 days  :)

Hungarian is about the only language I did not get a grasp of. Usually when in a country I can understand certain words and sentences but not in Hungary. Even Chinese was more structured when listening to it for one night.

Another difficult one was Portugese. Not reading, but the way they speak sounds like Ste's Russian  :o
No it is not a dog. Its really how I look.  ;)

Ste

Hungarian !!! Very complex language... by example, they say "Töredezettségmentesítőtleníttethetetlenségtelenítőtlenkedhetnétek" ( yes, a single word of 65 letters ), that you can translate by "you could constantly mention the lack [of a software] that makes it impossible to have anyone make something free of a defragmenter"...

Why use so complex word when everywhere in the world, people use the same word for describe these situation... in French, English, Russian, etc, the translation wil be "Windows" from Microsoft  ;D

Now, try to promounce this :
" Öt török öt görögöt dögönyöz örökös örömök között."  :hairraising:
who is translated by :
" Five Turks are massaging five Greeks amid everlasting delights. "
