Ich habe keine energy. Ich will schlafen. Warum schreibe auf Deutsch? No sé. Ahora yo escribo en español porque meine Deutsch ist nicht gut (muy mal). Yo quiero estudiar mas idiomas... no tengo tiempo que necessitas.

Whenever I try to speak a foreign language it comes out a mix of German, Spanish, and English where I'm lacking in vocab. Blah. I need to use my Learn German CDs more. This summer!

Kenji and I are making pizza..... maybe that'll give me energy. Doubtful.

stop trying to pretend your silly language can be written with a latin script. AND STOP WASTING VOWELS!

*laughs* This was my last year taking german (3rd year) and I get the feeling that I won't remember the conjugation of "to be" in 6 months.(Ich bin, du bist, er/sie sind, ect.)

HA! I haven't heard that in years! My mother always used to say that to me. She learned it in school in Slovakia (where, apparantly, they were required to learn German).

I can not believe that people would learn german for pleasure. the only reason why I would learn it is so I can interpret their plans to torture me. Oh yes, I know the germans, they are all out to get me.

Yup, we're secretly making plans what to do with you once we abducted you and locked you in our cellars. Hmm ... I'm sure we'll come up with something. ::wicked grin::

I feel your pain. I took 3 years of Spanish in high school and am in my second year of German in college. I grew up in Germany and currently live in San Diego, where Spanish is pretty much used as much as English, soo ... I mix things up all the time. Its quite a pain in the ass.

Im all for a universal language.

I read a book waaaaay back in high school (Wyrms, by Orson Scott Card if anyones intrested) in which this girl and her guardian would mix thier sentences up between some three different languages when they discussed hush hush stuff so no one could listen in.

The fun part about knowing (some) Spanish and taking German was answering the teacher in Spanish accidently whenever she asked a question.
