I'm bilingual English/Norwegian, and also though I currently sheight Norwegian more fluently than English, I have the right to plainly remember discovering Norwegian approximately the age of 9. The language has actually a distinct singing sound, however I think the majority of Norwegian speakers are mindful of it. We're a little nation and constantly interact via people speaking other languages that tell us what we sound like! We additionally have actually Scandinavian neighbours (Sweden and also Denmark) that soptimal langueras that are intelligible to us, but still sound quite different. Norwegian actually sounds even more favor Dutch than Danish bereason of the means words are pronounced.

It is basically just how I feel as soon as I visit my paleas in France: I have the right to understand also a few words here and also tright here, yet every little thing else sounds like they are reciting obscure, random poeattempt lines.
I don't obtain it. That's what I hear when I listen to German. I'm certain it's equivalent for just about everyone. Heck, that's what its like when I hear someone from Louisiana talking (exciting that the secrets had a "Louisiana State University" tag on them in the video). I was talking through a friend last week who is a native Bavarian. He states frequently times he cannot understand also fifty percent of what someone from Saxony is saying.

Being born and increased in Belgium, for me, i understand also "the kings english", the got pronunciation if you will. Comes from years of watching movies in english and having actually a great english teacher at institution. But the minute the speaker starts talking in a language, let's say cockney or other, i'm lost. (That's as soon as i start hoping for subtitles...
