Basically, I want to learn German, because it's a pretty bad ass language. However, I don't know anyone who knows German or the like, so I need some method of learning German via the internet / computer application. I've heard about Rosetta Stone a lot for learning languages, has anyone used it and been successful? Are there better programs out there? I'm sure there's a few Germans in the Pit who can point me to valid information.

Just scream out words in a scary manner, you have now learned German.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

Oddly, I'm learning German right now using Rosetta Stone mainly. I would definitely recommend acquiring it somehow. It's very intuitive even though I've not long started.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

"I am good in the bed with your mother."

"I am good in the bed" Seems like the insult someone who just learned the language would say

That's what 2 years of GCSE German 3 years ago does to you
How else would you say it?
Ich bin gut im Bett wouldn't make grammatical sense would it?

It would and does.

To TS:
German is quite similar to English, because they both basically origin from the same language (Germanic/Goth). Get a decent learning guide like Rosetta Stone and just watch movies or series in German asap. Helps a lot. I'm talking here as an English AND German teacher for secondary school.

why German? Italian is what all the b*tches love

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

I've never understood the compulsion to learn other languages.
What you should do instead is go to another country and teach somebody English.

I meant the compulsion for english speaking people to learn other languages.

Teaching a foreigner english would balance things out, and eliminate the need for us to learn a second tier, inferior language. English is the most sensible language, and is the language God intended for us to use (see: The Bible)

#21
I'm in the very slow process of learning German too. I'd like to try Rosetta Stone, but it's pretty damn expensive. My dad knows German, but I don't wanna waste all his time teaching me a whole language.

Not sure if serious, but if you are...

If god intended everyone to speak English and only English, then why in Genesis 11:1-9 did the following transpire:

Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.
They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.


But on topic, I'm going to give Rosetta Stone a try, see how well that works out.

I was given the full Rosetta Stone for French this Christmas. I can honestly say that I have made more progress in the 4 weeks I've been doing this than I did in 3 years in class in high school.

God works in mysterious ways.

The fact that the word of god which you are quoting is in english should tell you all you need to know about what language God wants us to speak.

Actually, Genesis was originally written in Hebrew (I'm an agnostic atheist and I know that.) , but obviously I used the English translation because I can't read Hebrew.

Maybe I should do that too, considering I suck balls at French, and have to take IB French in order to get my full diploma

Okay, well until you present proof that God wanted the world to speak English and only English, your original point remains invalid. And even then, it is subject to whether the individual believes in God or not.
