Welcome to the forum @alluneedisjohn! john-lennon-salute_gif

AppleScruffJunior is Irish, so she probably doesn't sound like the Queen at all -- even if you don't hear much of a difference between provincial English accents and posh ones, Irish and English are quite different accents. ahdn_george_06

A couple days ago I decided to start learning German on Duolingo (thanks for the inspiration @The Hole Got Fixed heart). I can now say 'water!' And 'women!' And if I try hard I can probably remember the word for 'is!' beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

I doubt it, mate. That ain't a fair shake of the sauce bottle what you said. Like, seriously, that bottle has no more dead horse in it at all. None. Not even enough for a parma. 

Don't kid us m8.

Give it time!! I got a bit disheartened at first but after the first month you start noticing a difference.

That being said it's been a year and a half and I'm yet to feel like I'm fluent.

Yep.

Because the whole point is that it is a regional dialect - and what makes it Australian is that we say stuff that other English speakers wouldn't understand. 

(Yes I understand it's said as a joke but this is what I study in my linguistics class)

For you German learners, make sure you’re learning the genders of the nouns as well as the noun itself, saying: der Frau when it’s die makes you sound like a bit of a fool.

@AllyouneedisJohn calling an Irish girl English oooh that’s a paddlin’ a-hard-days-night-george-10.

@50yearslate I’m also learning German on Duolingo. Ist das nicht lustig?

I had a 14 day streak until my phone got wet and I had to leave it in a bag or rice for two days a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Jealous of all you language learning folks. I come from a very linguistic family (my sister speaks Spanish, French and German as well as some regional languages from south America) but the gift seems to have skipped me. Maybe I'll follow Fiddy's lead and start learning German (again, because I did study it at school)

Is that something something? Why, I have no idea, as je ne parle pas l’allemande. All I really know how to say so far is ‘Wir sind Frauen und ihr seid Männer.”

@50yearslate rice absorbs water, so if you get your electronics wet, it's usually recommended that you submerge it in rice so that the rice will suck the moisture out.

Good to know, thank you. I’ll keep that in mind if I am ever caught in one of those unfortunate situations.
