The German educational system sucks sometimes...
But in topic languages it's really great! In grammar school you have to do at least two languages.
First English and then you usually can choose between French and Russian.
And there's the possibility to also make Latin or Spanish in some schools^^

Aw they didn't do anything like that in my grammer school :Pleur:
i wish we had more language classes here
only this one time in grammer school we had to learn French but that ended very quick, and the school was very cheap :60:

Come to Germany! :54:
But hey! There are also other ways to learn languages :17:
For example learning through internet, friends, etc. I'm learning Japanese like that^^

Yea, Germany has suffered a lot. But it's though not an excuse for what they've done ._.
I think especially the French won't forget about the Elsaß-Lothringen thing and the "Schlieffen-Plan"
where they wanted to go through Belgium to get to Paris and attack it.
Actually I think the oldest French won't forget indeed. But those who weren't born when the whole WW2 things happened, won't have the same feeling. I just feel surprised that the only way we can learn about Germany is with WW2 and these old stuff~
In fact i realize that in lessons we're really self centered. We don't learn that much things about GB or Spain or Italy for example. The French history courses are about the same things each year : WW2, Cold War, Staline etc...

Back at primary school we already (voluntarily) had some French lessons and in the first of those
we got a picture from our teacher where a man on a bike is seen with a sailor suit, cap and a baguette! xD~
( Primary school...that was such a nice time there...I can still remember us singing Frère Jaque :Gaya: )
Lol really? xD Actually in France we don't learn any German songs xD
In fact those who can are the one who choose German as 2nd language in junior high. Before that there's no way to learn other languages but English at school.
Kana a écrit:
Of course!
I'm sure on the 1st of May the Nazis will fight against the Punks again, as every year...
And the nazis even have their own party in politic, the NPD (Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands).
But the possibility isn't that high that they'll repeat the same thing again Hitler has done
because the percentage of the NPD is still too less^^
Wow. I didn't know that O_o
Near the place I live in there's few tramps with their dogs who fight with the drug dealers (they're black, tall and they watch you with a strange attitude xD)
But actually, it's not as dangerous as it seems. It's funny actually as they just fight between 'em.
During last presidential campaign, in France the extremist party was brought to 2nd ballot poll. Some point of this party are close to german NPD like "France to French", getting outside of UE, and being completely dependent etc...But actually when the results were given they were a mass movment against this party's leader. and Jacques Chirac won with more than 80% of the poll votes...
Kana a écrit:
Wow, the pictures of your hometown look great! *-*
Actually it's not that nice : our "greatest" monument (the gothic cathedral) is being reapaired for more than 5 years, with iron core grids, wood wall etc...it's not that beautiful right now lol.

In Quimper there's a lot of tourist in summer, including Germans ^^

Don~t! come to France instead, you'll help me to have a good US accent~! *US accent seeker* :chu!:

is that humanly possible? :MinGaan:
*THE POSSIBLE group would say "BE POSSIBLE~!"
I "just" wanna be fluent in 2 other languages than my mother language : US English (having the accent & everything :Hakutsu: ) & Japanese (Kyôto accent if possible, but formal accent's good too :Vuii: )

That might be true. But sadly it's often those eldery people who tell their children to hate Germany, too.
The war is official over for many years now but though it's not really over.
When you hear all the opinions and attitudes of those people here and there it's like the war is still active.
It was easy to do all those awful things but it's nearly impossible to excuse them and make people forget and forgive.

We've just sung a French song yesterday. It's called "Champs-Elysée" ^_^
First we sang the German version and then we tried the French but we failed xDD

OMG I hate people who look at you with serious eyes =x I'm afraid of them.
Let's hope that the world (no matter which country) won't repeat anything like our last generations had to suffer.

Are you familiar with the grammar and stuff like that?
Because it's hard to learn that by yourself. That's why I have some problems with the grammar ._.

Do you know "The Kelly Family"? They can speak about 10 languages or even more!^^
US English is great! But they always speak so fast and you can't understand a word >.<

I can help anyone wanting to speak English with an Aussie accent - that means, "Australian"... since that's where I'm from. Looking at the map, it seems I am the first one here from the whole of Oceania!! No-one from French Polynesia then?

When I was younger an Australian student came to my high school, His accent was very fun, I'd love to learn more about the Aussie accent :D

You're the first one of all Oceania indeed :D
In fact, if you don't count sayuminsayumin, who's actually japanese, you're the one who's the closest to Japan ^^

Actually Halloween isn't a French event, it has been sent to USA by Irish migrants and then came back to Europe these last years.
But in the case of France, I really think it was some kind of trend, which did not last.
I remember when I was much younger, I went to my neibor's asking for candy and stuff, but now nobody do that anymore (Some years ago I was waiting for kiddies to come with a bunch of sweeties I eventually had to eat up all for myself lol :pp

In France the whole Halloween thing started about 1O years ago, get it climax (with many children (including me) asking for candy, widespread of Halloween stuff in malls etc...) and eventually decreased they 3 years.

Has Halloween quest for candies always existed in the US?
Is there children who still ask for candies where you live?

This really sounds like very fun. I feel really nostalgic when I remembers the Halloweens I celebrated with some mates.
And not only for grabbing candies for free laughing out loud

It's a pity kiddies don't do this anymore in France hum
