    ...but when you learn languages at an early age, they're not well mapped to each other, so your translating sucks

    I learned both English and German as a child (thank God, because I've failed at pretty much every other language since then: French, Latin, Russian, Turkish, you name it) and I find that my translation between the two is pathetic. It gets better the longer the phrase or sentence is I'm to translate, but still nothing to write home about.

    Furthermore, any languages I've learned since then I seem to have learned from English, so to get from German to French, I have to go through English.

    Getting us back to problem number one.

    mecki jr is learning some language (probably Spanish) right off the bat.
