    LL: I was born and raised in Germany, so I already speak some German, but I'm nowhere near fluent becuase I moved away when I was 7 and havn't been back since. I'm 18 now. My family speaks English at home. I'm taking German to develop my knowledge of the language to the point where I can teach it in high school.

    High school is the first step. If I want to go farther, and I can afford it, then I may go for my PhD and become a professor somewhere down the line. But in the meantime, I'm just working on a BA then a BE.

    Ouias, mais je veux enseigner l'allemand. Qui ne parle pas l'francais dans la Canada? Je connais mon francais est ne tres bien pas, mais je connais c'est comme ci comme ca.

    Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Anders als "Guten Tag".

    English translation for those who need it:

    Yeah, but I want to teach German. Who doesn't speak Frenhc in Canada? I know my French isn't great, but I know it's decent.

    Do you speak German? More than "Good day".

    Il y a personnes dans Canada que ne parle pas francais. Le majorite peut parler francais, c'est vrai?

    Translation: There are people in Canada that don't speak french. Is it true the majority really do speak french?
    (I thought it was only Quebec.)

    Unfortunatly I know very little German. Of course I was born in the U.S. but my maiden name was Lentz. My ancestry traces back to being about 75% German. The rest of my ancestry is french(25%). I can speak french and english, in the future I would like to learn spanish and german! You'll have to give some tips! :)

    French and English are the two official languages of Canada. Quebec is the primary French area, but most Canadians can speak at least some French. I've never lived a day of my life in Quebec, but I took several years of French classes in school.

    What a surprise! I'm also 75% German and 25% French. My grandmother grew up in France and married a German. They had a daughter, my mother, who married a German, my dad. They had me, and we moved to Canada in 1991, mostly due to the economic recession that Unity brought about. Also, a lot of my family had already come over.

    My 11 year anniversary of me becoming a Canadian is coming up very soon. :)

    That is cool, we have the same ancestry...hey I guess that explains the stubborness of our types... ;)

    You really love Canada! Have you been to Europe at all in the last few years? That goes for anyone here on the boards, has anyone been to Europe in the past few years?

    Yes, I do really love Canada. I'm only 18, so most of my memories are post-1991. Sadly, I never returned. I do plan to though, in the future. I feel very strongly about that. As much as I love Canada, after all these years, Germany just... it's hard to describe, but it just feels like home. I've considered moving back, but my life is here now. I'm definately going to visit though at the soonest practical time. With my luck, that'll be when I'm 65.

    Of course Germany feels like home to you. I have been to France, England and Spain but I really would like to see Germany myself someday! I am sure you will see it before your 65, :)

    Yeah you are right, they don't. However Prof. in general make a pretty good living. It just depends what level you teach on.

    Speaking of schools has anyone been to Laval University in Quebec? I thought that it was a nice school when I saw it.

    True. But you need a PhD to be a professor, and that takes 8 years. 9 if you go for your BE to teach high school first, which is another year.

    I know you need a PhD to be a professor but it would be worth it in the long run with all those brains!!

    Speaking of school is it true in Canada you get to go to college the first two years for free?
