    This site has so many people from around the world. It would be great to learn a little about each other's languages, and maybe even chat about this topic a bit. It might even help us to conquer some of those language barriers in the games we play!

    Here's a topic to start:

    How do you say:"Hi, How are you today" in your native language?

        Is the "v" in "vandaag" like a "f" sound like engish "father" or is it more like "violin?"I ask b/c it is more like the English "f" in German. I think your "g" is more throaty...I understand b/c German is the same way.

          Hungarian: Szia, hogy vagy ma?

          German: Hallo, wie geht es dir heute?

          (And for the curious ones here is the Bernese German version: Hallo, wi geits dr h?t?)

            I almost took Hebrew but the class was full so I ended up in German.

            Is "Namaste, aap kaise ho?" pronounced exactly the way it looks" or are the letters sounding different than in English?

            Mistery's were all easy for me.

            See, I told ya all I wanna learn. lol

                Yes "Namaste, aap kaise ho?" is pronounced exactly the way it looks.
                I do speak one more Indian language called "Marathi". But I couldn't learn "Sanskrit". It's really tough, just like Hebrew.

                      There is a very nice person in my Counseling Lab who is from a suburb of New Delhi, India. She too speaks Sanskrit. She told me that it is a very old language. It is neat seeing all the languages all of you smart people speak!

                          This is the most sacred word in Sanskrit which says "OM". Used a lot during meditaion.

                            My favorite German phrase is:

                            Was schauen Sie mich so an?

                            oder (or)

                            Vahs shahohayn zeeh meehsh zo ahn?"

                            Engish translation: Why are you looking at me?

                            I say this to my Husbandall the time...so now he even knows what it means! lol

                              Again a small correction (sorry!), but it means: What/why are you looking at me?

                              What are you looking at would be the same but without the word "mich", lol :-)
