I know some Hebrew.

 

Shalom, Rut

Shalom Daniyel

 

 Koreh?

 

lo

 

I could go on, but my hebrew is a bit Rusty.

 

Hello Ruth

Hello Daniel

 

whats up?

 

Lo means No or nothing,

 

Shalom means Hello, Goodbye, and Peace.

 

I know a few german words as well as  porquito espanol.

 

My korean is next to none.

I've just chosen French in school, and I've had German for 2 years. 


Yellowhat is the literal translation of my surname.

Starting 7th grade (the grade I just started this year) my school offers Spanish, Latin, and German, and I chose Spanish. So far I only know simple introductions, but hopefully by the end of the year I'll know it much better.


WINNER of the first ever Astros Stratego Series!  :D

Fairway you made the best decision IMO. Spanish is easier to learn and in the US it is much more valuable that a dead language and German that you most likely will never use. I took Spanish in College and wish I had continued past the intro course. Especially necessary in Florida where I live.

The Catholic Church beginning to hold mass in English must have killed Latin in schools.

In my school I was just like Sgt. Bulldog. Beginning in 7th grade one could take foreign languages. There was German, French, Spanish, and Latin offered. Today I don't know what my old school offers. My son's high school school offers only Spanish and Chinese now.

Not necessarily a second language, but probably close enough for some of you.

Good Lord, and I thought that the American version was a desecration of English. :o
