My first language is Dutch. My English is a little bit worse, but some people understand me, so I speak English. Ich spreche auch eine kleine bische Deutsch, aber nicht sehr gut :tongue: I've for 2 years learn French. But I know only a few words: Bonjour, Au Revoir, le syndicat d'initiative and a few more. I know a few Japanese words too: Watashi wa Frank des (My name is Frank). But reading or writing Japanese :lol:

I speak Czech (it is in top 5 of the most difficult language of the world 8) ) and I study English and France.. So little lesson of the Czech:
English:Hi guys how are you? I think that Czech republic is really wonderful and I like Czech language=
Czech:Ahoj lidi, jak se mate? Myslim si, ze Ceska republika je opravdu nadherna a mam rada Cestinu
Teenagers Czech:Cauvec lidi, jak se dari? Si mysim, ze Cesko je hafo pekny a fakt zeru Cestinu :twisted:
(it is without diacritic because sometimes it is problem with display it in computer)

I agree the Czech Republic is a wonderful place, and everyone is SO friendly. I first visited in 1970(!) and have been back several times. It's nearer the UK!

Why are languages so difficult? for example - 'Tak' means 'Yes' in Polish and 'Thank You' in Danish! 'nuff to do your head in. :?

I can speak lion.

On 2 occasions the king has been 'lion' down and when I roared he got up. I must have said something offensive or challenging.
