My mother was German (so I've enjoyed lurking at your conversations with Lorenzo
). My conversation/spoken German is much better than my written or reading comprehension...but fortunately, it's spelled liked it sounds and I usually just have to sound-out the words I don't understand.
I took 6 years of French in middle/high school. I can still read it fairly well but my listening comprehension is the pits. As with most students of a language, I always think they're speaking too fast.
I would really like to learn Spanish and/or Italian...and when I retire, I'm going to! Just like I want to learn how to play the piano. I can read music (played the violin in school) but I have to hunt-n-peck on the keyboard.
