    Feliz Dia de Reyes for those of the Spanish Backgrounds.

    wmhawth,

    I'm not, but my ancestors were, and I spent 3 years over there, courtesy of the job. If you celebrate the religious aspect of Christmas, you'd really like Germany at Christmas-time.

    As to the language--My German isn't nearly as good as I'd like it to be.

    Cheers,
    Herk

    It's been my experience that when you try to speak German in Germany you often get a bored, slightly irritated look and the German to whom you are speaking will switch the conversation to English. Makes it hard for a Yank or a Brit to learn. The opposite seems to be true in Mexico. The people there will politely slow it down for you and help you with pronunciation and generally seem pleased that you are attempting their language. Ah well, we are way off topic here.

    William,

    Topic-schmopic. I will echo your sentiments about trying to speak German. Having German friends helps in that they know you're trying to learn.

    Cheers,
    Herk

    And how does your post relate to the thread topic of Three Holy Kings Day?

    Luckily the thread is posted in Off Topic anyway.

    interesting. i found that to not be true at all.
    everyone i know who has gone to france has had that experience. they try to speak french and the french speak english back. you speak english because you dont know french and they talk back to you in the fasted french you have ever heard.
    i spent a year in germany and i have got to say, one of the most rewarding things was the ONLY time i ever heard ONE word of english (besides american curse words which they use a lot) was either in english class or on the radio
    i loved it.
    anyways. happy 3 holy kings day to you too!
    i loved christmas in germany. mmm the cookies.

    Hmmm. I can't imagine being in Germany for very long and not hearing ONE word of English. I'd say far more Germans speak English than do the French. I guess if you found a place where you heard no English for a year you probably were able to learn a fair amount of German. A friend of mine spent 3 years in Costa Rica in a small village where no English was spoken. He said before he left Costa Rica he was dreaming in Spanish.

    oh yea. i was dreaming in german within about 2 months.
    i knew some german before i got there, so i learned very quickly.
    i actually had a lot of trouble switching back to english when i got back.
