"look up ahead" and this comes true. has anybody disserted as to why ? my humble experience is that i spent 6 whole, long years training how to gibber german, 10 years to finally mock japanese and only 3 months to successfully express in english - speaking it takes a few more years and fine encounters though ;-) - as if it were conjuring up a kind of "universal" grammar. the problem with english is that vocabulary is like the danaid's pierced=20 barrel : exhausting and never exhausted. don't other non-native speakers fee= l=20 so ? mathias (btw indonesian is only a few days' case - but who cares anyway)
