    In Romania, back when I was in school i started very early on with the French and then in like 5th class English was introduced as well. So French and English all the way `till the end of highschool. Unfortunately, i remember that our first English teacher was very poorly prepared and some kids even mocked her for not being able to explain/ translate the title of the book. :yesyes:

    What about your countries? What were your language options in school?

    When I was studying, English from 5th until 12th grade.
    French from 7th to 9th. Then you chose to carry on with French for 10-12th grade or to pick German instead.

    German is alright, but i totally dislike/ disliked French. :|
    I just couldn't stand it and we had this teacher that she was refusing to talk any romanian at all, we had to say everything in French etc.
    Her mouth was almost deformed from trying to hard to get the accent :lolol:

    A second language wasn't an option until high school for me and all they offered was Spanish which by the way was a different Spanish than what we spoke regionally. There were similarities but one thing they sais was the Spanish we spoke wasn't "real Spanish" because we spoke lots of slang and "Spanglish" but that was regionally influenced but when we spoke our pure dialect it wasn't respected by the people who taught us "real Spanish" which evidently came from Mexico. The Spanish we speak actually came from Spain long before the Inquisition and is traced back to the Sephardic Jews.

    I speak two dialects of Spanish, English, some Swahili and am learning Russian currently. Spanish isn't that tough but if someone speaks it too quickly I can't understand. Most people don't speak it nowadays so my ear isn't as in tune and that's the only reason I have difficulty sometimes understanding.
