Well besides my native German I speak English quite a bit, Spanish to get around the country and have some food, there also must be some Russian left after 9 years of school-Russian.

What really gets me stunned is how many are speaking Russian at this board...

Fluent in Ebonics.

Have to start taking Spanish though. I've tried before and failed miserably.

Took me about 3 minutes to decode that. I can speak ruussian at a 5th grade level but can hardly read or write.

BTW, no one on this board can speak better Spanish than I.

pide que tu novia se quita de mi pierna por favor


My wife is from Mexico D.F., but I spoke broken spanish before we ever met after years working as a landscape foreman. Between two years in college and speaking it at home with her, I'm now pretty darn fluent.

I found while learning that I was backwards, I could usually express myself, but had a harder time understanding others.

Learning not only the second language, but the culture of another people really opens up your eyes. Highly recommended, and all it takes is practice.

When learning by myself, I would simply write down five words each morning, and make sure to use them throughout the day.

Koto; I began to draft a pm for you but I still don't know how to attach pics in a pm!

I want to paint my current wheels to either bronze or gold and I need to see how they would look; so, here you go:

p.s. sorry for threadjacking.
