I had some French classes in high school - one teacher who was from France was more interested in presentation of work than actually teaching us anything, and the other one wasn't a bad teacher, but again the focus was on useless things like presentation than learning words or speaking the language.

Amazing how bono sounds like he is drifting in and out of consciousness during the actual song.

Haha, I didn't know there was a place called Adios, either.

I guess I usually skip the first couple letters.

We did a fair bit of Maori at my primary school. Maybe it's not compulsory nationwide? I think we had a specific Maori lesson every week, and certain units would require extra class time. I was actually pretty good at Maori and probably would have become fluent had I stayed in New Zealand. The college I would've attended had a very good Maori programme. Nowadays, I just know the anthem, counting, kia ora, and a few other words here and there.

Oh, we did far too much fucking Aussie European history. It was maddening. I mean, great, learn the stuff, but don't fucking repeat what we did last year. And have more damn scope!

Though Ian, be grateful you got Kiwi history. My mother was solely taught American history. She went to college on the Kapiti Coast!

Hmm, such a shame... French is a beautiful language and comes in handy when visiting different countries.

Oooh, do that. I've periodically been suggesting that for a while but we haven't gotten around to it. Don't forget the punctuation in the name!

Although I've never been to Australia or New Zealand, I've always been interested in cultural aspects, we had a host teacher at school some years back who came to tell us all about Maori culture and traditions - pretty interesting I have to say. We even learned some words, but I have to be honest I don't know any of those words anymore...
