  1. I prefer the American (New York) accent because it is simple and easy to understand.
  2. I don't know why but when I was a kid I just could not spell the words "definitely" and "probably".
  3. Yeah it has happened to me several times. It is some sort of a game that we play in my family, we ask each other to translate parts of a movie in English or French without watching. It is pretty fun
  4. I never tried to translate a poem but I can understand why it is a difficult task to do. In one language the poem may sound perfect and in another not so much. You just have to find the right balance.
  5. It surely is not perfect and sometimes you get awkward results from the translation, but it is free and even this translation is better than nothing.
  6. A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist are by far my favorite ones. Too many happy childhood memories
  7. I don't read much, but the Lord of the Rings books are something I will never forget.
  8. You can understand that by the way they look at you and their body language.
  9. "Bark up the wrong tree" is an expression that used to confuse me when I was a kid.
  10. "A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingeunity of complete fools." Douglas Adams
  11. I don't think I would ever forget my native language. I won't as long as my family and friends speak this language.
  12. I do consider myself religious, but to be honest I don't believe every single thing I read in the Bible. There is no archeological proof of a common universal language. I can't imagine how people living in Middle East spoke the same language with people living in America for example.
  13. I never heard anything similar to this one. I don't know much about it only what I've read or the true intentions behind such a bold move, but it looks like it is heading towards a positive direction.
  14. Where I live we start learning our first foreign language which is English in elementary school. In middle school you have to pick your second foreign language which is a choice between French and German.
  15. It is "καλά χριστούγεννα" in Greek. Kala Hristugenna using the Latin alphabet
