In highschool I had a choice of (meaning I had to pick one, not I could choose to not participate) Spanish, French, and German.

I had no interest in any of them so I went to the counciler and asked about just straight up Latin like they used to teach as it is the root for many other languages I feel it would better serve me. I was told that Latin was removed from school because it doesnt exsist anymore. I asked about Italian and was told it was too similar to spanish to warrant a seperate class.

5 years of spanish (2 in middle school, 3 in highschool) later and I know "Puedro ir al bano por favor." Which to my understanding is Where is the bathroom? or May I go to the bathroom please? I used it as the latter everyday and walked the halls for 20 minutes.

I have a German test tomorrow. Normally, I adore the language, despite not actually speaking it (We only have one hour of German a week), but at the moment, it's starting to annoy me.

Apfelschorle?! Bock?! Gaststättengewerbe?! Boo!

Wink You know, I never said the word Gaststättengewerbe in my whole life. That's only important if you study law or something. Everyone rather says Restaurant or Gaststätte.

I'll tell my teacher that, if I fail the test. She'll forgive me, then. >_>

Yes, that sounds way better. Sometimes I wish I would have paid more attention in the French class...but we also had a lot of fun laughing at the teacher.

That's puedo, the yo form of poder (a stem-changing verb) which means 'to be able to.'

'Where is the bathroom' would be ?Donde es el bano? for lack of an upside-down question mark.

I've had a year and a quarter of Spanish. Maybe you should pay more attention?

I didnt pay attention, that was the point.

Hence me walking the halls for 20 minutes every class, and not wanting to be there in the first place.

EDIT: Should also note spanish was the only class I did bad in. As it was the only class I deemed trivial.

The funniest part is how you go it completely wrong after correcting someone elses, dipshit. Know your limits and stop being so pretentious.

Ik vind de hoeveelheid klinkers in het Nederlands wel leuk. Hoewel het Engels fantastisch is, heeft het Nederlands toch ook wel iets speciaals.

Which is my main beef with french and german that is taught in school. They don't teach you anything usefull. My first 3 years of french consisted of me learning about things in a french school, which completely failed since I will never visit a french school. I wanna know what to say in restaurants and stuff like that, I will be a fucking tourist, not a student or politician.

The only cool word I learnt in german class is "Kiffen".
