And of this I am proud - after in excess of 10 years trying to shove it down my throat I know about 5 words. Brilliant because it's a nasty unpleasant language which 95% of welsh people mock.<br /><br />"ch ch ch dd och ydd ddiaaryddiaethcccwoddchchud"<br /><br />Not that that's an actual word but if you squint your eyes at welsh prose that's what every line looks like

<br /><br />Seriously, I hate when I hear of countries that prevent people from properly teaching their children their native language in public schools. But forcing children to learn a language that isn't really native to them, and which they don't want to learn, isn't any better.<br /><br />However, I also don't favor forcing people to learn any foreign language (German, Spanish, French, etc.) or classical language like Greek or Latin. If the student doesn't want to learn it, he won't, and it will be a waste of time, effort and money on everyone's part.
I, Lex Llama, super genius, will one day rule this planet! And then you'll rue the day you messed with me, you damned dirty apes!
