Thumbs up! I lived in Germany for ca. 2 years total and can speak it fairly fluently. My grammatic is horrible though. :mrgreen:

Sweet! :cheers: I have always loved the sound and feel of German and have feebly attempted to learn it several times as a kid but kind of gave up when there was no one to practice with/opportunity to use it.

It's the closest I can get to Klingon without actually learning Klingon.

Oh, I'd totally learn Klingon!! ! I love "fake" languages even more than real ones. I also attempted to learn Quenya elvish from Lord of the Rings in highschool but gave up for the same reason as above. I can read the Precursor code language from the Jak and Daxter game series, although it's not an actual language. I just love codes and languages.

You should learn a programming language, mitharatowen! ;)

I know web languages - HTML, CSS, ASP.NET (using VB), javascript, and some Java applet experience. With the knowledge of Visual Basic and Java (similar enough to C) that I have, I don't think it would be too hard to expand upon.

Very nice! :D

I work as a system developer, and know HTML, XML/XHTML, CSS, Javascript, C/C++, x86/87 Assembler, Basica/QBasic, Visual Basic, Pascal, Delphi and C#. ;)

The more languages you know, the easier is it to learn more. :)
