    Yeah that is =) so ? when do you teach us ?

    Valiowk : I only had Chinese classes 2 hours per week, you seem to practice it a lot =) it's a beautiful language, don't you think so ?

    NJ, yeah, the accents are pretty hard. Our teacher told us she knew two French girls who'd come to China, and had messed up 'soup' and 'sugar' in a restaurant, so they ended up with a coffee and a soup... embarrassing, isn't it ?

    Nwalme > I have spend 11 years in Morocco. That's why I can write and read Arabic (and speak, but I have not practised for a long long time)

    Actually, I would like to learn Japanese one day...

    Many universities provide a free internet access to their students [face_hopeful]
    of course, the stuendents are only supposed to use it to work :D AnnieGirlie, don't forget to pull your name out of your profile during the school year if you use your school comps =)

    Which part of Ireland are you going to ?

    Yeah, good point Twinnie : we would all feel horrified if we had to read something like "I don't like alcohol, I wanna get sober" coming from Anne ;)

    Once I was using a comp at university, and the connection suddendly ended, so a guy came in the computer room and tried to see what was wrong ; he eventually threw us all away. I was still logged in at the JC, and I was really scared he would try and find who was using the computers for fun once the connection was restablished [face_blush] all the more so as Luce isn't exactly a common name *sigh*
    Nothing happened though :D

    Limerick is not that close to the sea... anyone who told you it was is a liar :D

    I've been driving through Limerick, and it's by the river Shannon, which goes into the sea not far from Limerick.

    Hmmm... soup and sugar... yes it's pretty easy to mix the 2 up...

    I want to vote here as well but I can't, as I found no trace of Southern Europe... :(

    I 've studied German for about 3 years but that was quite a long time ago so naturally I remember almost nothing in German. I 've also studied French and English - I 'm fluent in the latter and as far as French is concerned... well... I think I can hold my own... :)

    BTW I 'm from Greece and yes, please stick to English! ;)

    I 'm thinking about taking up a new language which will rather be Italian. I 'm told that it 's easier to learn it once you 've been taught French... Is this true?

    of course we should stick to english since it´s the only one we all know. I just thought it a bit strange that so little people knew spanish(after all it´s the third most spoken language in the world, i think)
