    my father and his parents speak german, but never around me. and if they do, its something they dont want me to hear.
    he speaks french too, but neither fluently.

    but thats not what i asked.

    what i meant was it would help you want to learn.. for example, i meet a colombian girl the other day, who speaks terrible english. makes me wanna learn spanish... well, i already want to, and im in the process of learning already, but makes me want it more. plus along the way i could help her speak english lol

    just start swearing at them in their own language. you'll pick up on new words and saying fast. then you can use them against your friends!

    Go up to your dad and grandparents when they're together, and say
    "Ich mochte Deutsch wissen und sie sind Esels willen sie meinen lehrereinen sind nicht!!!"
    Also Say
    "Ich lieb sich, aber sie oft sind scheisskopfen."

    just look at your grandmother and exclaim:
    "Jadentag schlage Ich mein Fleisch!"

    She'll know what you mean.

    I like it, was just talking about it in the 'Why English Sucks' thread:

    That's the whole idea behind it, inference. You learn it just like your first language. They start out with a word and 4 pictures. You may have no idea what it is, but you guess till you get it right. Then they use that word with another one, and one of the pictures has the first thing plus the second thing. And so on.

    I have the spanish lessons 1 and 2, and they are ok, but as stated before they give you a picture and a word. You just guess what it means.

    i think thats how most language learning programs work.
    that live mocha one seems to be like that, and i had a spanish one a long time ago when i was a little kid that was kinda like that.

    i wanna get muzzy!!

    from what ive heard, english is the easiest to learn.
    my girlfriend says its easy, and its her second language.

    from what ive seen about other languages, english is a whole lot simpler.
    you dont need to change the word based on sex or age(kid talking to an adult for example).
    there isnt a shit load of words with just the slightest thing changed meaning the same thing.. ect.
