Ay yes. Forgot about that. When I watched some women's football on Eurosport there were 2 commentators one male and one female.
What about female commentary for men's football ?

I have. Our national team games usually have a sports writer as the main commentator and our women's football team captain as his partner. It's alright. Their commentating style is usually reserve and when the team scores, the main guy just says: "It's a goal for the Philippines." :roll:

Well done! Do you study languages or what. I get it for English and your other 5, but Italian is a pleasant surprise. :cheers:

I've started 3 weeks ago with German - alone. It won't be easy with the huge German grammar, but once you handle with that, you're on top. Spanish is something what I must learn in future. It's not that hard and I've got some things already in head which can help me a lot to learn, just like German. :)

JANKER wrote:It's not that hard once you learn one Latin language for example and then learning the next, once you learn one Slavic then learning the next, one Germanic then learning the next and so on... With a little effort you can speak a lot of languages... Somewhere by the age of 10, I spoke like all of these languages, school didn't help much, mostly tv and autodidactism. Being a bit lazy lately, not adding another language to the list. :lol:

I agree completely. Once you learn one Latin language, the other 3 aren't hard because same rules worth for the rest. If you learn Spanish, you easily learn Portuguese and vice versa. The same thing goes with Italian.

French is a bit weird for me. The only language where I've so little learned and memorized as a kid watching their comedies which isn't a case with English, German and Spanish. To be honest, almost nothing besides greetings, thank you, few short proverbs and introduction. :lol:

One guy told once that after you learn one, the other one becomes easier and after that more and more easier.

When we talk about laziness, it's my problem since always when it comes to study almost anything. Foreign languages had been my favorite stuff during the childhood, but after elementary school everything went in 'wrong' thing(pičke :mrgreen: ). My father has advised me in that time to sign up for language course in English, so I could quickly move on to German and I(stupid) didn't listen him. Today I would speak the mentioned three on my wishlist. :) Now I have time to practice English, study German on web through deutsch.info, Duolingo and one Facebook page which has been created, lately. Need to buy one good German-Croatian dictionary with grammar and borrow cousin's books for secondary school. It's going pretty well so far and I don't expect miracles after one month. It's a long journey. :)


I studied languages, but I didn't get my knowledge from there, as I said the TV helped me a lot and I think that's the best way to learn a language especially if you're young. When I was about 7 my Italian was perfect, I used to leave good impressions with my Italian to Italian visitors that I met at the time, they were amazed with how good I could speak it, and it was unbelievable to them that I could learn it that good from the TV. That used to make me a 7 year old interpreter... :lol: So if you want to learn a language just limit your channels to that language you are trying to learn, and don't cheat.
I never learnt more than I already knew at school, maybe some grammar rules. At the University the professor of the Italian used to let me lecture, cause he knew he couldn't improve my Italian more than that and he would take a break. It felt good, to be the best in something... :lol:
Languages at school were the easiest thing for me too, Arts, Geography, History, that too... Exact sciences not that much, even if I found them interesting except MATH, I still despise it even today. :x

Very interesting communication here. I can speak Estonian with English, but working on Russian and Spanish language. German is currently in "stand by".

Fúck! How haven't I recalled this earlier... Adriatic coast, tourists and there's the simple explanation. #-o :oops: :lol:

Yes, it's absolutely possible to learn from TV. My cousin in central Bosnia learned great German just by watching Super RTL, RTL2, Kika and other satellite(Astra) channels. When I was 2 yo, my father sent me and my mother away to Germany to grandpa and grandma who worked and lived there. In less than one and half year I had started to speak fluent German, but as they repeated many times, I was still a small child who had recently made first steps and words.
Other cousins from Herzegovina, whose fathers also sent them(together with brothers, sisters and moms) out long away from war, stayed in Germany for 4-5 years until Germany decided to kicked them out because of illegal stay after the end of confrontations. They all came back knowing fluent German and here they've learned English. Many of these war refugees would come back, continue their school from 3rd, 4th or 5th grade and start studying another one. When someone says it's impossible, he lies.

I agree with that.

Grammar is an important basis to start, but many people say that listening and speaking is more important than rules.
We certainly don't speak our own language strictly by following the rules.
It's desirable to know as best as you can, understand tenses, verbs, word order in sentences(subject, predicate, object, etc.), but what benefit from that if you stutter, make empty holes and you still haven't routine and confidence to think and speak loud and clear.
Standard language and spelling are important at work, paperwork, etc. Improvement in communication comes by using it on every day basis.

My friend was scared last year that he won't be able to learn and work because he hasn't used German for 15 years, but after little repetition with his mom, 2 months in München(2 years ago) at his grandpa, everything's come back and now he's been there working for almost one and half year.

Never been a talent for Arts and drawing, especially Musician class even though I had 4-5(A's and B's). :mrgreen:

Geography, History was a piece of cake after the 5th grade. Math and Physics weren't good(laziness), but I went to school of Electrical Engineering and recently graduded at Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

Math become interesting and awesome when you needed to finish your faculty. :lol: The only thing I regret were maximum lack of interest in Math in primary and secondary school although the 2nd grade Math of highschool was my personal best after the 4th grade of primary school. :mrgreen:

... and then in 3rd and 4th grade come one nightmare of professor(woman) who destroyed me and my great potential before faculty.

You won't eat cheap bread on Balkan no matter what you finish. Well, I lie... Only Computer science, ie engineers(even those PC-freaks who know program without faculty) are available to get employed in Croatia. :)

I read the European Committee report 10 years old when many countries became EU members and the polls about foreign langauges including those who weren't EU members in that time.

If I find pdf I'll put it here.

edit:

This is from 2005.

I see there's 2012 which I haven't read, yet. But I will just to compare number and see if anything has changed.

I always had an idea about an 'European League' made of all the big clubs from every country of Europe, it would be more 'real' than any domestic league and CL together.

Cause the reality is that the 'bigs' of Europe don't have real competition in their domestic leagues, and I find it a farce keeping it this way...
Let's say the 2 or 3 best teams of every domestic league would qualify to this league, and they would play in that league until they relegate, while others would find promotion every year... That would be a more equal solution and less boring. And they wouldn't be wasting their time or ours playing against teams that we know they'll beat and thrash, it would be much more entertaining...

A league made of only the best of Europe... For this system it would be the right thing to do so... And it's sometimes that useless playing against some or most of the teams that is boring to death. I want to see some clashes of the titans more often, that would be more fair to everyone IMO.

Or if we want to keep these formats we have now, they can just change some transfer rules, set money limits for everyone equally. Nobody would believe that actually a BUYern fan is proposing this. :P

I haven't elaborated it, it's just to show the idea...

With Platini and Blatter, we won't be seeing changes, but if we do it will be for bad more likely...
