    Old Mr. Forrest here is trying to learn some new tricks
    anyone here speak German?
    I do not, might I add, but I thought watching people speak the language might help

    thanks, Omran
    I think I understood most of that
    you lived and studied in Germany for five years, but unfortunately had to stop studying and go to work as you did not have enough money?

    eh, I think I am getting there
    Germany must have been nice [​IMG]

    When I wanted to learn Spanish a friend of mine that could speak it told me to get my favorite movie that I new lots of the lines and buy the spanish version. Watch the movie and she said I would learn alot that way. I do think the best way to learn it is to hear it alot. I spent a week in Mexico knowing no spanish at all and no one around me spoke English and I was suprised how fast i picked up a lot of the words. I can say tho that I hated not knowing what anyone was talking about most of the time lol...
    I must have said what did she say a million and one times that week ha!

    I wonder what forrest gump would sound like in German [​IMG]

    not that it is my favourite movie, nor do I know it well, but with my username a lot of references have been made to it

    I plan on visiting there eventually, as well as other places I have not been in Europe
