My friend and I invented "Gerglish". Wir had gross funnen mit our Deutsch und Englisch.

OH GOD THIS REMINDS ME OF DUMB AUSTRALIANS.

Ali probably knows what I'm talking about. There's some brand of chocolate or something advertised on TV here called Weiss. They call it "weese". I shit you not. I cringe every time.

I took Japanese in my first year at high school. I no fucked idea what was going on, neither did my mate. I got about 5/100 in the final test and he got 3/100.

The teacher wanted us to treat the classroom as thought it were a plane and keep our bags out of the aisles.

That same friend of mine copied me in a social studies test and got a higher mark when i went back and changed an answer that i'd originally got right - that started my policy of NEVER changing answers in tests or exams

My favourite German-fuckup anecdote:

Start of second year, the teacher asks us to say in German what we did on the holidays... I'd been to a dinosaur dig, so I tried to say something like "I was digging up bones" ... the word for "bone" is "Knocken"... I got confused and said "Knaben", which I believe is "small boy".

The look on the teacher's face was priceless.

We called all of our teachers by their nicknames to their face, but they were fairly stock-standard Aussie nicknames: Johnno, Robbo, Thommo, Queenie ...

The front door down some dodgy looking steps or the back door which i think opened right out onto a thick garden of trees and a 5 foot drop

probably. all i know is when we got up to the traffic light before the light my work building is on and he went straight and i went right, i tore down that street. i know doing 60 in a 45 isn't good, and i saved myself like 10 seconds, but it made me feel better

I got what you said (although I learned it as "Sprechen Sie doch langsam, bitte")... I was trying to apologise for speaking too quickly.

Somehow I suspect you and pub rock of the style of Cold Chisel wouldn't mix.

Actually, I don't mind Khe Sanh all that much, it's one of their more tolerable songs. And yes, Ali, I'm not shitting you. I couldn't believe it either. After a fortnight, with my exceptionally slow and difficult English class, it got very, very old.

Oh, and I was going to comment on your LJ post, but congrats on the upcoming publishing, Screwtape.

Haha, the only one we ever got away with calling to his face was the same cool teacher who i'm meaning to catch up with....Mr G, usually said with a thick Pacific Island/NZ hip hop accent.

Others like Fothers, Walrus, The Chicken we weren't going to get away with.
