    Not sure, would either have to be German or something Scandinavian (maybe Norwegian/Swedish or something slightly more random like Faroese).

    The video's been removed...what a shame!

    From my own experience of my baby brother; when he was seven weeks old, a health visitor came to the house to do a routine assessment of his development and also to check that my mum was recovering after a particularly arduous labour.

    My brother was in one of those 'baby bouncer' chairs on the floor and was in front of my mum who was sitting in her chair. The health visitor witnessed the two-way 'conversation' between my mum and brother. My mum would say something to the baby...he would listen..then, when she paused, he would respond by babbling. This sequence was repeated a few times until the health visitor interjected. She said that she had never seen an infant so young having such a developed sense of conversation - but then he was a very smart baby who has grown up into a very smart adult.

    We underestimate how highly developed babies are because we don't spend enough time having the patience to observe and interact with them on a higher level.

    I could teach you German but I am not frequently on TSR.

    I love Spanish and French, and they're undoubtedly a lot more useful in virtually every context, but German sounds pretty awesome in full flow!
    Yay, finally someone like the German Language. It does sound cool lol. You could say I am one sided since I was born in Germany and speak and write it fluently but anyhoo. :lol:

    Are you Irish? Your username reminds me of cecelia ahern, I love her books so much by the way. I know way off topic but still

    :rofl:

    Gaeltacht farmers? Ex-provos? Uber-Catholic Irish nationalists who hate Britain? Barefaced communists? German folklorists?

    Most of the Irish speaking men (many exceptions of course) I've come across seem to fall into one of these categories [/stereotype] :teehee: From your posts I don't think they'd really be your type.

    EDIT: I am an Irish speaker too before anyone negs me
