    Bad manners, do you speak Letzebuergisch?

    OK. So you do drink beer by the masl, then. So when are you going to start a pointless discussion on Bavarian?

    Indeed you aren't. You seldom stick to your original arguments.[/quote:343i68bs]
    My arguments? My arguments were that the above mentioned language is useless. But I am not discussing that anymore, because I'm perfectly OK with your wasting your worthless time on an equally worthless language.

    [quote:343i68bs]Need I remind you that anything you don't feel like discussing should not be posted on Internet forums?
    Rubbish. I didn't post anything I didn't feel like discussing. This is not a discussion of whether one should or shouldn't study Lёtzebuergesch. [/quote:343i68bs]
    Which is fine, because as I admitted earlier I am not discouraging you from learning this useless language.

    Gei futti, bad manners. Du geess mir op d'Schlappen.[/quote:343i68bs]
    As a person recently advocating severe punishment for use of foul language, you are not very polite. To say nothing about the grammar. Did you learn it from your Croatian friend naturalised in Luxembourg educated in Belgium?

    There is no such thing as a worthless language, bad manners. There are languages that are useful, or not useful(as you know) but no language is 'worthless'.

    You are right. It is not entirely worthless. I even know a category of people who value it very highly. To become a teller in a Luxembourg-based bank, one must speak that language.

    My Lёtzebuergesch is perfect. Perfecter than yours. And as far as swearing is concerned, I was talking about swearing in Russian, not the heavenly Lёtzebuergesch. All right me old bean?

    I'm getting the feeling that you envy me - obviously you've wanted to learn Lёtzebuergesch all your life and now that I've got a real opportunity to become fluent in it you're all green with envy.

    Good point. But here's a question: do you think they'd allow a non-native to take such a job, in the unlikely event that they were fluent in the lingo?

    The interesting thing is that, despite the fact that French is supposedly the official administrative language of the Grand Duchy*, they will hire non-French-speakers in customer service roles in banks. Customer service is a bit of an issue in Luxembourg, a country where all the taxi drivers run a top-of-the-range Mercedez Benz.

    *arguably not the only, but the main admin. lang.

    Question of definitions, I guess.

    I've actually wanted not to know that language for a quite some time.

    Native or not, it all boils down to connections in the end. Teller positions are very popular with the native Luxembourgers, you know.

    French is supposedly the official administrative language of the Grand Duchy* ... *arguably not the only, but the main admin. lang.
    It is. All state papers are issued in French, all road signs are posted in French. The only exception is the local administration, who might do it in French and German. Luxembourgish is almost not used by administration, except for some slogans and fliers.

    That was kind of the point I was trying to make.. I did have a bank account there, you know

    Yes I got the impression that maybe there were some local newspapers and newsletters in Luxembourgish, and that's it. But I kind of deliberately avoided it, to tell the truth, as I did German while I was there .. the polyglots on here are horrified, I'm sure

    So, you've lived there yourself, right? Still do?
