nothing important but still odd

Post by FF-Nopileos » Mon Aug 25, 2003 21:25

The command for changing a colour is in american english "....", while the task line uses british english saying coloUr :wink:

As I said nothing important, but I was a bit like this 8O , when I tried to use colours today :idea:

Well peeps have told me that swedish is hard as hell to learn, think its easier if we learn english, tho we learn british in school but lots of stuff is in american so its just a big soup of british and american english.

I was a swedish teacher in Spain a few months when i was studying spanish there, kinda fun.

Swedish is supposed to be quite easy to dutch ppl. Easier than Danish I hope :roll: And dutch should be easy for Swedish aswell.
Although, if I walk around Ikea all those names make me wonder sometimes ...

Speaking is harder than reading yeah. Cause everyone always talks so fast and swallows half the words.
