    You telling me you don't get this when you search for just 'sigue'? I didn't tell you to specifically search for 'sigue' for a laugh, you know.

    Hahaha well you've probably done a lot more work than I have so I trust you Ah, I've heard of the Blue Banana goes through England, Holland, the Ruhr, and Italy right? I've also heard that the dialects can also be heard a bit more in the south, like Neapolitan, because standard Italian is taken from old Tuscan...?
    Denmark has a rotten banana. :teehee:

    Yao is want. I was just wondering if you liked it a lot since you remembered the phrase haha.

    You're welcome, I'm glad to be of help. Yeah, because it's so natural for a native/good speaker, we sometimes forget to teach little details like that. Anyway, now you know.
    :lol: No, I have no idea why I remember it

    Yeah, I know what you mean

    㿪 - never seen this word before: according to the Kangxi Dictionary it is a kind of skin disease
    女 - woman/girl/female
    友 - friend (女友 is girlfriend)
    巿 - city
    娥 - beautiful woman (uncommon/dated word)

    I have no idea how to learn or start Spanish...

    Ah right. Yes, Chinese can be quite daunting, since every character seems to have 1092837 uses depending on context and have 1028457202849127129 homophones.

    That would be a good place to start. I suppose the pronunciation is the thing that foreigners hate most, especially the tones.

    Oh wow :eek: is it a nice city to live in? I know it's built near a supervolcano, but is it pretty and quintessentially Italian?
    I'm actually not really from Naples, just an hour away from there - a tiny village near Benevento. But we've got the same History, culture, lifestyle, etc ..
    Naples is a pretty nice city to live in in general : amazing food and culture, beautiful places, lots of things to do. But right now it's going through a rough patch, like the rest of Southern Italy .. it's super dirty, there's trash literally everywhere that's a real shame, it used to be so beautiful ... (the richer areas of the city are still very clean though)
    :rolleyes:
    (Original post by EmilyJayne14)
    Wow, that's awesome!! Is there much difference between Neapolitan and standard Italian?? (I'm assuming you speak both)
    The vocabulary is completely different - it's a mix between Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. The accent, the vocab and the idioms make it really hard for Italian speakers to understand it - in fact, they usually don't. When I go to Milan to visit my family and I say stuff in my dialect, they have no idea what I'm saying :rolleyes:

    Woah, didn't think it would be that different! It's like a whole other language then! :eek:

    I just started by doing vocab stuff. In fact, I did that before I'd even decided to learn Chinese properly
