**puts hand down** I'll cheer. too frikkin' tired, even if you gave me a dictionary and a year's head start I'd still bomb out.

I got a dirty look today from the gym owner. I turned the treadmill off and rode the belt until I was flicked off the end.. It was fun, not often you get a free ride.

Stupid gym-guy... it should be expected that people are going to ride the belt to the end as belt-riding is the wave of the future...

Gaelic is kind of a pain to learn... but it does sound really cool. Written, it is a little confusing as a great amount of the consonants have some really interesting sounds and there are some that are unusually silent.

I feel like a retard knowing some people in Europe know four or five languages and I can't learn a second.

Try something logical. Like German.
Also, don't feel like a retard. Everyone has strong points and weak points. I bet you're really good at important life skills that I'm totally shit at.

It was a girl. I know all the OHS stuff with not riding the belt but really?

Should be an olympic sport - belt riding.

There aren't any guys at the gym. (chose it because of the childcare).

I'm taking German this semester! I had one class and already I'm nervous about it.

And apparently movie German isn't anything like real German. This is what I learned so far.

I think it's easier than other second languages for an English speaker. At my school the majority of people seemed to pick French and Spanish on the basis that they were easier than German which I'll never understand.

I can't really remember anything now but even back then I didn't find movies very useful for learning because they spoke way too fast for me. Rammstein actually sing really clearly and slowly, not that they sing much you'd ever say in a conversation. Sometimes we watched the german dub of The Simpsons in lessons, I think it even had Homer singing the American national anthem with german lyrics.

I should look up the Simpsons! I was thinking more of English movies that have Germans in them, stereotypes I know and rarely German speakers themselves. Like I always though 'ich' was like ICK and no. No it is not.

Hey, does someone want to translate a German song for me?
It's called "Der Tod Ist Ein Meister Aus Deautschland" and it's by Some More Crime.
I am trying to find it on Google but having a shitty time with it.
I have it in digital form so I could probably find a way to share the song itself, if needed

On Youtube it just seems to be samples in English, no lyrics? There's a song of the same name by a band called Slime but I have no idea what they're saying besides the title (Death is a master from Germany). The lyrics to that are online, does this sound right? Google Translate. The few words I remember look right anyway. Celan's story is a reference to this.

I looked for Homer singing in German awhile ago but I couldn't find it online, our teacher had them on video or DVD. You should definitely watch it if you can find it though.
Oh, I see what you mean. The kind of movie where half the words that the Germans say are "schnell!!!!"? Haha. Still, it is a bit harsher than English. Last time I was in Germany I got made fun of by a Dutch guy because I wasn't pronouncing something harshly enough.

On a similar note to The Simpsons, I saw this on TV in Italy haha:

Raptor- Here's a link to the sound file for the song.
http://db.tt/TwG2Zct
It's made up of newscast samples in German and English.
i"ll post over on the Music section too, so this doesn't get lost in the nothingness of this thread

I want to learn German *sigh* my university puts German lessons always in times of my other classes, and since it's in the middle of nowhere -the uni that is- I don't really have the time to hop buses to go learn downtown.

Lets hope this semester they won't screw it up..
