    However that's true that I find most accents quite cute.

    I think French women are also enchanting, but I haven't felt up to studying French...Your language seems too much complicated (as Japanese ). Every noun has sex? Come on...

    French is a bit complicated, but in everyday's conversation we use only a small subset of the grammar. Many tenses are archaic anyway. As for the gender, as long as you're not in a classroom it's not a big mistake to use the wrong one, and that contributes to the charm of the non-natives indeed ;)

    Is French vocabulary similar with Deutsch? I had a hard time learning Deutsch not only because of sex but something like der/dem. It's fun though. 8) :D

    I suppose these languages are somewhat similar, in terms of difficulty.

    I've been trying to memorize how to write a, i, u, e, o (the Fifty Sounds) in Japanese for almost a whole month! I wish I were Taka. 8)

    FRC, is there any funny way to practice retroflex 'r' in your language?

    Yeah, it's roughly the same sound as when you clean your throat (without water, otherwise it will make a gurgling sound).

    I'd rather sleep now than clean my throat.

    Good night(yawn)! Have a nice day there. :wink:

    I think Chinese characters are much more difficult to remember. And I wouldn't even try to remember all those different kinds of accent of "ma" in Chinese (I don't know exactly how many kinds there are...) :)

    Yeah right, Taka. Each of Chinese character has 5 different tones.

    ma1==> mother
    ma2==> numb
    ma3==> horse
    ma4==> curse
    ma5==> question mark '?'

    Where's the original poster? :D
