That's why even Duolingo is better than the crap they use in school
Took three years of Spanish in high school and learned a little, then I moved to California and learned a lot
@Jacob you don't learn if you don't practice! Also 1000000000% of American foreign language education is learning vocabulary words and never really stringing thoughts together
Duolingo is actually a pretty decent resource to get familiar with sentence structure and vocabulary.
it's much more important to know how to make a sentence than knowing how to say "ostrich" in spanish
probably not even wrong
ya I agree with all that

also something like "oferowac" because I heard it in a civ game
I'm assuming it's "offer, give"
French speaking Africans are already weird

I lived on the island of Cyprus for two years so I’m fairly fluent in Greek And I can confirm that it is a difficult language
Check out this book I got in London
And I can testify that it is indeed a difficult language
Very cool still
Imagine if the Chinese started calling us "Goy".
They have another word for it
That’s where the Mormon church sent me to serve my mandatory LDS mission
Yeah I think it's something like lao wai?
I saw a ton of Antifa and generally communist graffiti and propaganda everywhere in Greece when I was there. I did see a bit of Golden Dawn stuff as well though, but the amount of leftist references I saw was staggering.
I can't remember
@Grayson I nearly lived there too my parents almost accepted a teaching Job in Nicosia. Were there as a missionary? My brother went to Bucharest for his missionary work
