    yah thats about all I learned.. I think it means "Does your friend also go to high school". That is, if I spelled it right. Oh and of course I can count to 10
    Actually it means "Is your friend also a high school student?"
    I speak basic japanese but im no where near fluent.

    What I never understood about American's knowledge of Greek is why our alpha, beta, gamma, so on so on combines both ancient and modern greek sounds. Ancient greek would sound like alpa, beta, gamma, delta; but now it would sound alfa, veta, ghama, THelta; many different sounds.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    If I could instantly speak another language, it'd be either Latin or Japanese.

    I think I would second that. Sign language looks pretty cool...Actually it would be cool to learn to read lips. Might come in handy
