Could I please request a small post with the names of some countries and how to say that you live and are from somewhere, or am I being cheeky? :oops:

I had intended to write something like that anyway in one of my next "grammar and structures" topics next week or so, because I am going to show you the locative cases (= how to express "in", "to" and "from" some place) :)

Do practice a bit before you go on too fast... it's a common mistake especially with "exotic" languages that people think they can sort of inhale whole grammar tables ;) I quite liked it how Vertaler tried all the little exercises in the topics that I wrote last week.

My Saami is slow-going as well at the moment, but I was so happy last week when I chatted with a Saami guy half an hour or so... we usually chat in Norwegian, because I'm too lazy to think in Saami, but I've decided I should really practice it more 8)

He doesn't want to :( Says he doesn't like forums. Both the Saami and the Greenlandic guys I know are like that... we exchange mails and chat on Skype or ICQ.
