|H0rb0rt||and actually my name is Herbert, but we dutch nerds like to replace letters with the 0 digit.|
|billboforealdoe||ah doje im in cinci|
|H0rb0rt||You know, somehow I think growing up in the USA differs from growing up in Holland|
|billboforealdoe||im sure it does. how do you know english so well though?|
yup I live like 20 miles or so north of cincinnati
|H0rb0rt||Well thank you, most ppl think my english sucks (A lot of cartoon Network and Start Trek I think)|
|doje||can't go wrong there H0rb0rt|
|billboforealdoe||crazy, how old are you|
how old are you billboforereal
|billboforealdoe||18, did you take enlish in school.. like were you made or what|
|H0rb0rt||we leart some english when we ware in, how doe you say, school when your not past 12 yet, but that was like, learn three words....|
and then there was school for when youre between 12 and 18
and we had quite a lot english there.
|H0rb0rt||(dutch schools really focus on like this broad development, as a nerd, that really socks.|
|billboforealdoe||I just think its pathetic everyone in the world has to know english but every one in the US doesn't learn anything but spanish cause of all the mexicans|
|H0rb0rt||I had french untill I was 18!|
Although I choose a more technical studie.
|doje||I didn't have trouble just speaking english while in the Netherlands|
|billboforealdoe||well your a much more rounded person because of it and be thankful|
|doje||it's a lot harder to learn a second language in the us than in the eu i think|
|H0rb0rt||Haha, sometimes though we dutch ppl are a bit arrogant saying that foreigners ought to speak dutch when there in Holland, buit that;'s just sometimes. I lake it when ppl speak english.|
we have so many cultures around us.
|billboforealdoe||you should hear how pissed americans get at foreign languaged people|
|H0rb0rt||I mean, I turn on the tv, and switch some channels.|
It's like: A gazillion languages.
|doje||i tried to learn dutch for a while|
|H0rb0rt||I only get pissed when ppl speak frysian (it's this dialact, that is a language though)|
