    I speak fluent French.

    Do you have a local college that does evening classes?

    I'm not sure - how long do you think it will take to learn full German?

    Depends upon you really - how quick do you learn? What is your memory like? Are you planning on living in Germany, or being around people who speak German all the time - you will pick it up more quickly if that is the case.

    Evening classes will tend to be either German conversation (which will be useful, but probably slow-moving) or GCSE German, which will focus on grammar etc as well. If you wanted to learn more quickly, you could look at buying one of the language courses such as this:

    I speak Level 1 British Sign Language :)

    German would be a great language to speak, I've always wanted to learn. I hope you find a good class. Sorry I can't be of any help.

    Conversation German? About 2 years with a GCSE course depending on how fast you learn.

    Full German? French took me around 7 years to learn fully.

    It would take years and probably living in Germany/knowing a German person who will speak to you only in German to be fluent. To conversation level a couple of years.
    I speak a bit of french, spanish, latin and ancient greek. I'm starting to learn Italian.

    I speak very fluent "spoonerism" :D

    I am well known for mixing my words up. And it's not just me it seems to run in my family!

    For example I once said to my hubby "I need to go shows clopping" (work that one out!) and we should go to that par cark it's less busy"

    But my cousin topped me one day shortly after my mum died and we were chatting when she said "Aunty Wendy really loved her Stiff Pilchard! Now incase you're sat trying to work that one out it was nowt like it was meant to be she honestly meant to say Cliff Richard!!!:001_rolleyes:

    So I have trouble with the Queens English let alone any other language.
