Hi girls,

I was wondering if any of you can speak another language except English? I am learning Spanish and have been for a while,but i would be so grateful if someone could help me say a few words in French and German, in fact in any other language! There is a reason for this, mainly to send a message to someone who speaks these languages. The message i would like to translate is a personal message, so please please PM me asap. I really need your help!

Many Thanks for your time and help.

I can count to 10 in 5 different languages but that's all i know!! I spoke some German, French & Spanish before but it's all gone from my head since i left school.. Check out this site though http://www.freetranslation.com/ I used it all the time when i was learning languages. You type what you want to say in English, hit the button & the whole text is translated in to whatever language you choose! Only downfall is that it's translated literally so if you use a saying like "i left the cat ouf of the bag" meaning you let something slip, they'll translate it to "i left the cat out of the bag".. Get my drift?! Enjoy

Aw Kim, that's like my friend now! She moved to Italy last year for a year with college & met her boyfriend over there. He couldn't speak much english & she couldn't speak much italian but they're still together now (almost 18 months later!)

My dad was Mexican and my mother is Puerto Rican, so I'm fluent in Spanish. I also studied a little bit of French but havent mastered it yet. Thats one of my goals for the next year.

I took Italian in school for 7 years - but you'd be surprised how much you forget when you don't use it anymore!!! LOL I can understand it better than I can speak it... but I really don't remember much from school. I just look on google for translators... my friend at work is Spanish and I like to joke around with him by IM'ing him in Spanish from across the room when he knows that I don't know a word beyond 'Hola" LOL

Although my favorite phrase from Italian class has to be "Quanti persone che sono nella tua famiglia?" (How many people are in your family - LOL) It just sounds good saying... LOL makes you look like you know what you're talking about... LOLOLOL

I don't understand, what does "piccie up" mean


Your letter in on my desk, I forgot to post it...
I do it this afternoon.

You're not just a pretty face too, you could speak french as I speak english if you tryed to speak with native french on a board, like I did for english.

Have a nice day everybody!!!
