De réir mar a thuigim, is "anta" le haghaidh fear agus "anti" le haghaidh ban.
I haven't a bog to be honest, but it doesn't appear to be half as difficult as I thought it would be.
Sin mar a thuigim fresian.
It is twice as difficult as I thought so I guess I am one quarter as smart as you.
I am familiar with all these (few) words from my pimsleur audio but it is a great help to see them written as well. I am about 3 weeks into this now and I am hopeful that I will stick it out. My nephew learned Hebrew and that could not be too easy either. He is adept. He speaks fluent Spanish and is after learning Irish also. I presume both Irish and Hebrew would be to a fairly basic level of course
I bit off more than I could chew with new languages, so I have given up the ghost already for the moment.
Which ones have you been trying to get a grasp of before this
What the fu*k you learning this rag head sh1t for Dan?
French, German, Spanish, Cornish, Swedish, Welsh..
I'm that sad Dan, I even collect a few Latin phrases.
Business or pleasure? You must think I'm one sad muthurfuckér..
Book of the Dean of Lismore
It is primarily written in the "secretary hand" of Scotland, rather than the corr-litir style of hand-writing employed by Gaelic speakers in Ireland. The orthography is the same kind used to write the Lowland Scots variety of the Anglic languages, and was a common way of writing Scottish Gaelic in the Late Middle Ages.
Although the principal part of the manuscript's contents are in Gaelic, the manuscript as a whole is multilingual, and there are a significant number of texts written in Scots and Latin, including extracts from the Scots poets William Dunbar and Robert Henryson, and there is a great deal of Gaelic-English diglossia throughout the manuscript. Many of the Gaelic texts are of Irish provenance, and in the case of bardic poetry, Irish poems outnumber Scottish poems 44 to 21. - Book of the Dean of Lismore
The Anglo-Frisian family tree is:
Saterland Frisian (last remaining dialect of East Frisian)
I need to have a splattering of languages for what I will be studying over the next few years.
I come in contact with educated arabic speakers on occasion Myles, plus not all arabs are muslims. I greatly admire arab Christians.
I see people who I would consider less intelligent than I being able to speak two or three languages, so I have decided to learn this one.
Good luck with that.
I'll need it. Irish poems outnumber Scottish poems 2 to 1 in that particular book, so I could survive with Irish, but understanding Irish gives me a huge advantage with Scottish, which I can read fairly well as it is. I've made a bit of headway with Cornish, Manx and Welsh, and I have done French, German and Spanish when I was younger, so it's an achievable goal over the next year or so, to be conversational in each of those languages.
I've started learning Gaulish. It's easy enough for me as I've studied Old Irish.
Hal 'indaka awlaad, a chara?
Ana i'ndee walad wa bintan.
I have one boy and two girls. I think 2 girls is bantan but it might be bintani.
Knowing well all the pronouns will make my pimsleur listening much easier. I am familiar with about 8 of the 12 so I will get the 12 learned off now
I am about 2 months into this by now. It is mostly listening on my pimsleur.

I have level 1 and there are 3 levels. Level 1 consists of 30 lessons which I have listened to intently giving plenty of time. I am now going over it a second time and am on lesson 9 and 10. What I have noticed is that you really can't miss a day or you will fall out of the rhythm. That is why one lesson of 30 minutes is recommended daily even if you listen to it a few times. It is perfect for the car for a person driving to and from work.
Arabic is difficult, but I am making progress.
A simpler language like Dutch or German would be a piece of cake.
If anybody wishes to try a different language I will join them. Obviously Arabic would not be the choice of too many.
