Haha, grammar can really make you lose all your joy for speaking in foreign languages.
The problem in Switzerland seems to be that for example people who live in the German speaking part of Switzerland donīt get along very well with people who live in the French part of the country.
Thatīs such a shame!
Well - but in the end Iīm nothing but glad that Google translate could help me to send you my season greetings!
German is indeed a difficult language.
I always found it a little bit weird that a small country like Switzerland has in fact 4 different languages - German (+Schwyzerdütsch), French, Italian and Rhaeto-Romanic .....
Do you live near the German border? Do you like to speak German?
People from Uruguay seem to be spread all over the world!
And PdE is a very nice place to be in summer!
Did you know that Diego Forlán doesnīt like to drink mate?
Oh and there is no rivalry between Peņarol or Nacional. Itīs only Peņarol that counts.....
I think that my English is quite okay. My French is rather comme ci, comme įa.
And unfortunately I donīt speak Italian.
But I can speak German fluently - an I even understand Schwyzerdütsch (the Swiss version of German), but donīt speak it all the day.
Even most native Swiss people I know canīt speak French/Italian fluently.
A couple of years ago I 'revealed' on FIF that MVD is an abbreviation for Montevideo.
Due to my fatherīs profession the familiy had to travel a lot.
For several years we are living in Europe, at the moment in a small village surrounded by Swiss Alps.
I must admit that Google was my friend.....
I donīt speak Danish. But Iīm really glad that Google translator did a good job!
All my best wishes to you and your family!
Glædelig jul og godt nytår!
I donīt know that much about Egypt - but I truly hope that Devious is okay!
Same goes for his lovely cute cats.....
Several months ago Devious told me that he would be off for a while due to 'business reasons'.
Nobody here on FIF would have thought that it would be for such a long time.....
He always posted great things on FIF - and we used to have a really nice chat via PM.
I think many people on FIF are missing him.....
What has happened to Devious?
