Why you should learn German....
A reporter from The Telegraph (a British newspaper) was sent to a German press conference to live blog for his newspaper. Since he couldn't understand a word, the results were hilarious:
The counter example is Pope Benedict's resignation. They held a press conference to announce it, but held it in Latin because it's the Church. They then handed out releases in more commonly spoken languages.
However on reporter in the crowd, Giovanna Chirri, could speak Latin and while everyone else was waiting for the handout, she was on the phone breaking the story.
I love it! The blog is so funny! But best of all, I watched the press conference and understood almost everything, Danke Duo!
Really? That's great! Maybe someone should twitter him an invitation to duolingo :)
That's amazing, one more reason for me to get back to Duo German after the French tree this weekend ;)
Haha, that was quite funny. Es hat mich sehr viel spaß gemacht, danke schön!
