It's not so strange. We're on a forum about video games, which really took off in Japan, and as such a lot of people here are really interested in Japan and Japanese. It helps to understand the culture and the humor behind the games, and also a lot of information or even games are only released in Japan, as it's been said before.

I picked up enough that I think I understand what that says.

Are you asking if someone wants to eat a cat?

More or less, but it's hard for me to tell exactly without better sentence structure...

Just Dutch (native) and English which is my only foreign language. I also speak a teensy bit of French. At one point there were no teachers for French and we didn't even have someone at all to teach German because they couldn't find someone, so I never learned those languages completely.

If you live in a non-English speaking country, then yes! I do speak a foreign language.

If you live in an English-speaking country, then I've got nothing for you. I tried learning Japanese, but I gave up. English will forever be my one true language love.

Ave, Ratengo! That was almost my signature. Or "Caelum, non animum mutant, qui trans mare currunt," which basically means a person is who he is, no matter where he goes. Much more poetic in Latin, though: They change the sky, not the soul, those who cross the sea.

O Vendetta...! Si tacuisses, fortasse philosophus mansisses (If you had remained silent, you would maybe have remained a philosopher). :)

I studied Latin frenetically in college ten years ago but nowadays, I have almost forgotten everything. What sadly...! :( Repetitio est mater studiorum, sed hodie non est mea interest. Tibi felix faustumque sit exopto! (i wish you good luck!)

@Ratengo: If repetition is the mother of learning, then usage is the father. It's tough to have a converastion in a language very few people speak. At least we have an excuse for not remembering, but I wish I remembered more. :-(

@Vendetta: I had letter exchanges with my Latin teacher at that time. I just found a copy and my first thought was... "What the ---- did I wrote?!" :

Salve, [teacher's name]! (date: est duodevigentesimus dies in Maio)

Gratias tibi ago letteris! Nunc gravis has litteras translatare erat, et bene mihi erat. Labor cum pluris pagnis latinis, qui correxisti, in computerio scripsi et spero ut omnes delectabunt. Potesne fabulas latinas expartere puellis, si habere velint? Picturas fabularum exscribere ab computerio temptavi, sed frustra. Itavero, quid in feriis aestivis faciam? Volo ire et mori (ita est!). Quod in schola fatigatissimus sum. Ita iacere et dormire in cubilculo meo, per duas et dimidas menses volo. Tum spero me recreatum esse, tune schola incipit. Si ego non est, opera scholarum meum ire ad silva veniunt. In [the city's name] per feriis aestivis habitabo, sed mater mea [another city there the college is located] visitare vult, ita ego etiam hic per aestivis ero. Cogito scribere si res facere volo, sed adhuc non expertus in lingua latina sum. Omnes id certe vident, quomodo litteras in lingua scribo. Hodie vespere apud amicam meam, in festo eram - edebamus bibebamusque. Postremo omnes pleni cibo erant. Bonum initum in aestate! Libenter srcibe litteras mihi ante feriis aestivis incipit!

Discipulus tuus, [Ratengo]

My second thought was: "Very amazing...! I actually wrote letters in a practically dead language." If NintendoLife has been etablished for more than ten years ago, we would probably be able to send messages to each other in Latin. But for now... do you want to help translating my own letter...? Muhahaha....!! :D

Wow... it's 10 years ago for you, but even longer for me, meus amicus! I read the letter once through and was able to discern the ideas mostly. You're mentioning how translating the letters will be good for you to learn. You'll work through many pages of Latin, with corrections, on the computer but "it's all good," to use the current slang. ;-) Then you ask something about it being possible to go away with the girls, if they wish? The computer is good to send pitcures, but frustrating (THIS IS GETTING INTERESTING! LOL Maybe I stop here though! LOLOL!)

Hahaha "No, your cat was delicious" ?

I would have said: "Iie, Malnin-chan no neko wa oishiku nai deshou"
Hahaha I hope that's correct!

Edit: If that is incorrect, I was trying to say "No, your (Malnin's) cat is probably not (that) tasty" :D

@Sneaker13: I have seen that video, and also the interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Charlize Theron teaches some Afrikaans ('Hoe gaan dit?' meaning 'How are you?') to Ellen, who uses it on Famke Janssen, and basically messes it up, confusing the hell out Famke! I lolled pretty hard!
