    I think you are much like a Tomte: always friendly and protective as long as nobody angers you. A bit shy but strong.

    Actually, our family company which i work in is called "Hustomten", so "house gnome" in English :lol:

    Are you a fellow Swede? I'm asking since you linked the Swedish poem.

    Jag beklagar, Emher, men jag är tysk. Bayersk, mer exakt :D
    I speak a little Dutch and Gaelic, though, which are both similar enough to Swedish that I get the gist of the poem. Though not enough to be able to appreciate its beauty :(

    Sisyphus for me, I guess. If this were a poll, he'd be way ahead by now.

    Tack så mycket :) The vocabulary is from http://en.bab.la/dictionary/english-swedish/ - the grammar is from me, though. I've always had an instinct for how a language is constructed. Only Dutch grammar is a complete mystery to me :p

    LOL I am a mythical creature: a babelfish :D

    Your grammar is excellent! I've also always had a talent for languages. And sorry, I studied French and not German in school...

    I chose Latin instead of French. I need it for my job and it's a good basis for learning other languages. But I'm just starting to learn French*, now. I have a friend in Provence who helps me and in return I help her improve her English.

    * no jokes about French kissing, please. There's nothing left to learn for me in that department :D which provides an excellent bridge back to the thread's topic: my first BF used to call me Ishtar

    I really like french, but no surprise seeing as my great great grandfather was Belgian. it's in my blood.

    As for the french kissing I funnily enough did that with an American girl the first time :lol:

    According to "The Art of Kissing", Germans are second best at it. After the French, of course. Must be all this fraternisation we did after WW II :D
