I do have family back in Italy, and they own this farm I only seen in pictures. Looks nice, but I don't think I'll go there for a while. I need a passport first, and a steady job.

Just to help you with your already encouraging efforts: In German the present perfect is split if there's an object involved, so the correct syntax of the sentence given would be "Ich habe auch Deutsch studiert" (I have also studied German). Plus, the adverb "noch" defines the "nicht" negative particle and is thus placed before it ("Ich bin noch nicht gut darin" - I'm not good at it yet). But otherwise gut gemacht :wink: :)

Good to know. I'm still learning. German's a difficult language to grasp.

I just wanted to mention that Italy is awesome, I've been there as a tourist and really liked it. It has some spirit, that I've not seen anywhere else.

If you get lost in Berlin and encounter a homosexual who is attracted to your male genitalia parts, one could respond thusly:

"Ich bin nicht so eine Masseuse."
(Ish bin nisht zo eye-neh massoos)

In English:
"I am not that kind of masseuse."

In finnish you can respond to everyhing with:
"Mitä vittuu?"
Me-tae vit-twoo

"What the fuck"

Everyone says that a lot.

some words from swedenland:

"Björntjänst" pronounced byurn-shaenst, literally "bear's service"

It's similar to a disservice but it has explicitly good intent behind it. You try doing something good but it ends up being a disservice, it's a bear's service.

"Älvdans" pronounced elv-danns, literally "fairy dance"

It's spooky local mist over meadows and lakes in mornings and evenings, in folk lore it's personified as spirits otherwise invisible to humans dancing around.

"Å" pronounced aw like in awesome, it means creek.

"Ö" pronounced uh, like the u sound in burn. It means island :^)

It's funny with Swedish, when I hear it, I can pick up enough words to get the idea what the person is saying, but if I had to put down a sentence, I'd be fucked.
But what comes to the Finnish Swedish, it's nothing like real Swedish. It's a weird dialect of Swedish and Finnish and no one knows what the fuck they're talking about. I live on a west coast, and here's the most Finns Swedes. We have lots of places around me that don't speak/have Finnish at all. My mothers side of the family is Swedish speaking, and my mother didn't teach us the language (she totally should have! that would have been the easiest), it was the language they used when they had secrets that kids couldn't hear :lol:

Anyway, knowing it properly would benefit me, especially in job searching cause many places demand you'll know at least Finnish and Swedish.(and English is good to know too)
I come from a country of northern lights, lightless days and nightless nights.
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.

Swedish is by far my favorite language, and I love English pretty much to death, so that's really something for me to say. Oh, and if you have fun playing with languages, German can be your best friend too. Anything that can be punified basically :lol:
