  1. I officially started learning Spanish in High School, but I had many Hispanic friends who I picked up some words and phrases from. It helps to have people who are completely fluent in the language to help you out along the way.
  2. You should really work on both; the words themselves, and how they tie in together with other words. Once you master this, you can master the language.
  3. I feel correct grammar is very important when learning a language, but not as important when you're comfortable with said language. If your grammar is too correct, you can sound like a robot, but you also don't want to miss out on important grammatical lessons when learning a language.
  4. Traffic is always a plus. I liked from my account. What is the vast majority of the content going to be? It'd be nice to see all sorts of different quotes, idioms, and the like on the page.
  5. Definitely Russian. I have no idea why, but the Russian language has always fascinated me. I actually tried learning some back in high school, but ended up passing it up for a job and schoolwork. Japanese would be awesome to learn to, I'm into anime and I'd like to watch some Japanese-only shows.
  6. Miniature (miniture), oblique (obleak), weird (wierd). Some words just don't look right some days.
  7. So I'm confused as to when you would use "usted" and when you would use "tu". Everything I've looked at tells me they mean the same thing, yet I hear them both being used by the same people and can't define the difference. Is it a cultural thing?
  8. Sarcasm to me is second nature, because both my parents were VERY sarcastic. Sarcasm fascinates me, because it shows exactly how the inflection defines the word. Without being able to physically hear you, "Yeah, you're cool." could literally be two different meanings.
  9. I understand the need to to correct someone if they say something wrong, but lately I've seen a large increase in people trying to use this to win arguments. For example, someone might say "Whatever bro your just stupid." I understand the English language and the fact that it should be "Whatever, bro, you're just stupid.", but I don't correct it because I despise when people correct me. It might be different if the person's first language was something other than English and they were asking for help, but this usually isn't the case. It really gets on my nerves when others try to prove their "
  10. "The human sacrificed himself, to save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are." -Mewtwo, from the first Pokemon movie. Pretty deep for a kid's show if you ask me.
