I actually wanted to start Greek for a multitude of reasons (one of which I shalln't share here). I don't nessicarily find Hebrew all that difficult to type, or get back into. I just wanted an IE language to go along with Japanese. Since, do to vocabulary overload, I've put German on ketchup mode.

Anyway, I'll PM you once my internet cooperates, kevin. I also started a study group in the Ancient/Classical subforums. (Actually, I started it a week or two ago. :P )

You may surprised to learn how much ketchup costs in Germany.

Was? Mustard on Hamburger?! Nein, nein! Mustard must only be eaten with Weißwuascht, Brezen un Weißbier! Or in salad.

Mustard on Pommes frites?! Heretic! Everyone knows the only correct way to eat Pommes frites is with mayonnaise!

Seriously, though. That's how at least Germans and Dutch people think is the only right way to eat french fries.

Not true. You have the choice between ketchup, mayo, a combination of both ("rot-weiß") or mustard. Speaking about Germany only, that is.
Please correct my mistakes!

Pommes mit Senf? Ernsthaft?

Naja, zumindest die Auswahl müsste man eigentlich schon haben, auch wenn man es eher nicht nehmen wird. Immerhin gibt es bei gutefrage dazu Diskussionen und sogar ein gleichnamiges Lied :lol:

Okay, du hast gewonnen. Es gibt zu viele Leute mit Geschmacksverirrungen. :lol:

(Wobei ich mir vorstellen kann, dass ich Senf sogar bevorzugen würde, wenn die Alternative Ketchup ist..)

After about a month off the grid, largely, I'm back~~~~~~! :P

So, I spent about a month in Boston taking the Cambridge CELTA certificate course, and I'm happy to report that I passed! :partyhat: I can teach English to people! (Look out foreign countries, here I come :naughty: )

However, before I jump on a plane, I have another school year quickly approaching.

This will give me time to plan where I want to go, look into potential jobs, and learn a bit of the language of where I settle on going. This is largely the same places I've talked about before: Japan, Korea, Taiwan are all high on the list. Though Germany and Polish would be pretty cool too. So for the most part, nothing changes (yet?).

The time I had to actually do any language study during my CELTA course was less than zero. So for the next week, I'm going to refresh my knowledge of Japanese, Greek and Taiwanese (getting caught up with where I left off).
