Guys have any tips, sites, etc? I speak Afrikaans (kind of a Dutch rip off) so it shouldn't be too difficult to learn...

Thanx Pit!

I'm glad he handled it calmly. Joe Satriani should realize that with only 7 notes in the world, some songs are going to sound similar.

Uh no...

If you mean "she is in class":
Sie ist im Unterricht. / Sie ist beim Unterricht.

If you meant "she is in the class (talking about the room, not talking about her taking lessons):
Sie ist in der Klasse.


A lot of the vocabulary is pretty close to English, but the grammar is more complicated and it'll be hell for you to learn all the articles and irregular verbs.

EDIT: I don't mean to demotivate anyone though. It is an extremely precise language, you can often say things in one sentence that require two or three sentences in English.

I started learning German to get into the Vienna Medical University, knowing dutch I could understand almost everything I read. the other way around is hard, but the grammar kind of reminds me of latin, so if you would happen to know that too, It might help.

Unfortunately we only have English and Afrikaans in South-Africa, with Sotho or Xhosa coming in in the next few years...
