It's a drug mate don't do it I beg you run away while you have a chance - when you get deeper into this stuff there's always more going on than you can handle, this is why I got into this stuff: because there's always something to find out rather than the more usual (about the Arts) "Is that all there is?" No one told me that language learning goes on forever. Good innit
Very true! Once you're used to the "formula" of language learning, it's hard not to pick up that next book. :)
Incidentally, Hueg, was your first German post written with colloquial spelling or is that the standard in other German-speaking countries, outside Germany? Both of my old German professors, coincidentally, came from the same town in N. Germany, so I never learned much variety, although I hear Swiss German is a bit different in that way. :p
German is a lot of fun, but it isn't much help in learning Polish; not for me, at least. That wasn't the original post's question, I noticed, but whenever I see this thread, it always looks like he's asking whether knowing German would be helpful for learning Polish, rather than for living in Poland, which was the real question. Heh.
