    And Peter Gade will be her professor at Bird University! :D

    How come you went to Denmark instead of other European countries? Because your Dad was sent there by his China boss? What was your initial experience in Aarhus? Did you mix well with the children of other races in the International school? In what language do you normally converse with them and with your parents?

    How many years have you been there already and how many more before you and/or your family decide to return to Fujian or perhaps Shanghai/Beijing?

    Do you read, write and speak those languages you have learnt? At what levels would you say your command of these languages. Can you read newspapers in these languages? Do you have a chance to practise them on a regular basis, apart from Danish and English?

    Well, perhaps enough questions for now. Let the other guys ask more. :D

    Wahahaha... That's a lot of questions, Loh. ;)

    My dad was asked to be a "guest researcher" in Aarhus University. He's a surgeon/researcher/professor now. So we came here, we liked the place, it's very clean, people are friendly. The nature is beautiful.
    International school... since many of the other kids were also foreigners, we mixed well together. We all spoke in Danish together! At home, I speak Mandarin with my parents and Mandarin mix Danish with my brother.

    I've been there since 1995, soon 11 years!!! Wah... so long time huh? I'll stay here till my uni's finished. Don't know about my parents. :confused: I think they like both places...

    Mandarin: speak, read, write a bit (could be much better :eek: )
    English: speak, read, write
    Danish: speak, read, write
    German: speak some, read some, write some
    French: speak some, read some, write some (still learning)

    Yeah, I can read newspapers in these languages... practise German/French - only in school!!! :p

    You can do all that together? So you will become the person that people fear most, the dentist?

    You actually considered accounting? :D I find it really boring. I personally love economics as its a very wonderful subject.

    We'll see. I look forward to you drilling holes in my tooth. :p

    So it wouldn't be hard for you to translate those "Peter Gade" instructional videos to English for us right? :p

    Just joking!

    Yannie, are you able to give some details of how exactly to pronounce the Danish players' names. Was looking for a more complete guide to it.
