    Maybe it was pre-emoting the ending as lo 'I can't understand it' , which is a bit silly. Although it may actually be because you would use the verb 'entender' to mean to 'understand' instead.

    to go to bed = "naar bed gaan"!
    Go to bed! = "Ga naar bed" of "Ga nu onmiddelijk naar bed!"

    Dat is hoe wij het zouden zeggen!

    Without taking the capitalisation of nouns into consideration...
    Are you able to differentiate between Dutch and German??

    Likee, I can easily recognize French...but I can't tell Italian from Spanish (unless I see the word "Italiano" or "Espagnol" written in every other sentence...and that's often the case when Emily, Tess, et al are speaking on here ^^!
    I don't speak Dutch and I don't speak German well, but I think I can tell them apart - Dutch has more Js! And having studied French and Spanish, and Italian a tiny weeny bit, I can tell them apart easily now (not that I once conjugated a Spanish verb in a French way and had my whole French class - 36 people - laugh at me... :L)

    Lool I didn't realise there were so many J's I thought the obvious would have been the many double vowels for Dutch...and the capitalisation of nouns and higher frequency of umlauts in words for German LOL! 36 students is HUGE for a regular high school class, let alone a MFL one! :zomg:

    That was only one thing I noticed - and now you mention it there are a lot of double vowels. And MFL, either French or German, is compulsory at my school until year eleven, and we are a big class, but we're top set, and when I did w/e in MFL at school I noticed that all the top sets were big classes, and it was the lower sets that were smaller - except my amazing Spanish class, who were an option group, and the ONLY Spanish class in the school. There were eleven of us.

    MFL has always been compulsory - for years and years... And maybe it just so happens that lots of people in my neck of the woods are good at languages
