    please tell me what's wrong with that sentence. My Dutch has obliterated my German.(I wonder why Deutsch isn't called Dutch in English)
    Guten Tag, ich habe seit mehr als sechs Jahren kein Deutsch gesprochen. Ich habe in dieser Zeit (or: inzwischen, or: seitdem) verschiedene Sprachen gelernt (?, gelehrt is "taught"). Eine dieser Sprachen ist Niederländisch, und die hat alle [deutschen] Wörter aufgefressen.

    Dat is duidelijk te zien. "Taal" is Nederlands en je volgorde van de zinsdelen lijkt ook heel erg op Nederlands. Maar je kunt verstaan wat je wilt zeggen.

    Woah, Nederlands, dat helpt veel. Ik ben al die naamvallen vergeten. Thanks again. I'm gonna save my German grammer booklet from the dust it's been collecting.

    I already have studied German since October 2004. I've been studying German on a basis of two hours each day except Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday right now.

    It depends on what you actually want to say, though. You wouldn't usually use the 2nd sentence as you did. Better versions (depending on context):

    Wie wär's (= Wie wäre es)?
    Geht das?
    Hätten Sie Interesse?
    Interessiert?
    Haben Sie Zeit?


    If you met a girl you want to get to know better, another less direct approach would be advisable, eg. inviting her on a coffee.

    I see. And if i'm going to make a conversation with the girl, I should use the familiar pronoun of "du" instead of formal pronoun "Sie"?

    I have already climbed up to the intermediate. I once practiced my German with an Austrian on the internet.

    That also depends on context (& age), but usually that's alright. Du is the common approach up to the age of 30 (roughly).

    Ich lachele sehr... Ich könnte nichts dafür.

    Lina Inverse... New Mexico, Texas, California und andere, waren mexikanische Bundestaaten bis 1848.

    Dieses Thema ist sehr interessant...

    Die deutsche Sprache ist auch sehr interessant, von dem grammatische Gesichtspunkt. Der Predikat ist verteilt, und dies passiert nicht in Sprachen die aus Latein stammen.

    Ist nicht deine Avatar von Azuka (Evangelion)?

    Alle Achtung.

    Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch, weil ich in der Deutsche Schule gegangen war. Is that sentence correct? Or should it be "besuchen" instead of "gehen"? I'm trying to improve my German level, since I learned it in High School and I was pretty good at it. Something I could never understand is the use of accusative, dative, etc. it is so difficult! I don't know when to use der, den, dem. Is there an easy explanation? Like for dummies I mean

    There is nothing better and cheaper (free) to learn Deutsch than the Deutsche Welle language courses
