English is my primary language but I'm Vietnamese so I know enough Vietnamese to communicate with my parents and others but I'm definitely not fluent. I can't read or write in vietnamese but I can speak enough of it. I took 3 years of spanish in high school as well but most of that is gone from my head.

Do you know any songs you can sing? I used to know a lot of play songs, but then I forgot them after I started school. I know this old song called "Awatin Mo, At Issasawyaw Ko" and I can sing the whole thing with out screwing up. Even though I don't understand. It's by VST and CO...I'm not sure if you heard of them...

My first language is Hungarian, and the second is English. During this summer I read too much books in English, so after a couple of days I began to think in English... XD It was weird and sometimes really annoying. :lol: Anyway, I just began to love this language, though maybe Hungarian is more... variegated. And the grammar is really hard... well, to foreigners at least. But it can be sooo beautiful... :D

Hmmm... I learned German, too, but I didn't really like it. At the beginning it was really good, but after 2 or 3 years we got an awful teacher... should I continue? :|

Go ahead. If it's that I used the wrong form of besuchen, it's because I don't know what it should be. My German teacher says that most people will just appriciate that we're trying... I hope she's right, haha.

English is my primary language but I've been trying to lern Italian since I was little so I could speak to my italian family and I just have the inability to absorb it, even after visiting nearly every year of my life. I understand more than I can speak though >.<

no no in this case you need the infinitive but you forgot something...you have to say ich möchte Deutschland sehr gerne besuchen...you forgot "gerne" let me translate it to explain (i can't translate it word per word if i do you won't understand your mistake) okay let me try...it's like you wrote " it would be very to visit germany" instead of "it would be very great to germany" i bet i'm an awful teacher...but it's fun anyway :D
