Germans: Oh you’re learning German? Hey, you’re not so bad at it. Don’t fuck it up though. 

French: About time you learned French. 

Russians, Koreans, Spanish-speakers: WOW YOU’RE LEARNING MY LANGUAGE? LET ME HELP YOU I CAN GET SOME MATERIALS FOR YOU AND RECOMMEND SOME SITES AND VIDEOS, DID YOU JUST SAY “HELLO” IN MY LANGUAGE? YOU ARE SO GREAT WOW I AM SO IMPRESSED

Dutch: but why would you do this

why would you do this

Although let’s be real.
When someone tells me they’re trying to learn Russian, my first reaction is generally to look confused and very suspicious.

baw, re: Russians, Koreans, Spanish - That’s been my reaction from Japanese speakers as well

Finns: Oh, ugh, sorry.  Why?

And then

Finns:  You can roll your Rs?!  You can say the Y?!  Hyvä!

My right wrist has been in bad bad shape lately, so I’m back to working with my non-dominant hand until I finish a couple rounds with doctors.  Yesterday my personal challenge was fine detail x Ivan Bilibin.

My dad the comic book expert said they made Fury look like Samuel L Jackson with his permission in the comic book. So when they made the movie, guess who they had to go find? Samuel L Jackson.
