Haha agus cul de sac sa bonjour inne
Ah, those dialogues! It's amazing how they stick in one's head! Thirty years on, I still remember them. Last night I checked the mailbox, and a copy of my high school German textbook (first year) was there. Anyone else remember these?
I'm just wondering what languages folks here have studied, and how well they speak them.
I've formally studied Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese. Most of my French and Mandarin are gone but I still retain enough to recognize words here and...
Okay, so you all probably know I'm re-teaching myself Portuguese. Being a really visual learner I actually learn better with modern software than I ever did in a classroom setting. I'm lucky to live in a really portuguese are that, once I get back...

In school I learned a little French but not much. Since then I have never really used it. I can understand a bit but I can't speak (or write) it.
I would love to be able to use it at least in a limited fashion.
Do you know any good resources...

In scola lingua Latina discebam sed principaliter scripta Latina in linguam Germanicam transferebamus. Praeterea dehinc decennium praeteriit. Ergo sententias latinas scribere negotium incredibile difficultate est.
Mais oui! Je parle un peu de francais. J'ai étudé Francais a l'école pour cinq ans mais je ne le parle pas au courant. Je voudrais etre au courant. J'ai visité a Paris quand j'etais un petit garcon. Je voudrais visiter a Paris ou Québec a l'avenir.
