Zes Word Zaterdag (Six Word Saturday)



For one last time (this year) I am linking up with Cate over at Showmyface.com for 6WS.  Want to link up too?  Describe what is going on in your life in 6 words. 

It could be anything and you can post a picture with it and explanation if you like.  It is up to you.  And then link up and visit the other blogs. 





Here is my 6 words for today:

Goede dag!  Spreekt u Engels? (I know it only looks like 5 words but really it is 6 when translated).

Do you know what language it is?

Did you guess?

Dutch!

Translation:  Good day, do you speak English?

Now you might be wondering why I am speaking Dutch?  Or not?  I am going to tell you anyways. 

I bought my ticket for my trip to Africa yesterday and on my way home I have a two day layover in Amsterdam so I figured I should probably brush up on some Dutch.  I downloaded an audio guide of common words and phrases in Dutch to listen to and hopefully absorb a little over the next two months before my trip.

I should probably learn a little bit of አማርኛ? amarəñña for when I am in Ethiopia.  Ahmeric is the main language there but luckily we will have a translator with us at all times while there.

What is going on in your life this last Saturday of 2011?

Any big plans for today/tonight?

Hope everyone has a blessed and SAFE New Year!  And remember if you are going to DRINK, DON'T DRIVE.  Take a cab or have a designated driver.

See you next year!

  5. I don't know Dutch but it's so similar to German and so I knew what you were saying.

    You've booked your ticket?? Ohhh how incredibly exciting, you must be busting with excitement because that's when it feels real.

    It's 41 degrees here today, so I'm sitting on my lounge in air conditioned comfort. I'm thinking an afternoon nanna nap is on the cards.

    Hope you had a good New Years and stayed warm and dry. What a contrast from our heat.
