I browse the Deutsches Einradforum occasionally to look for gallery links and video links. I don’t read or speak German so I can’t make much sense of what they are saying. But I am good at spotting the links.
I know there are people in the German forum who also read and post here in the English forum. If one of them could let us know over here when there is a good gallery or a good video posted over in their forums, that would be cool. Same goes for French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese riders. We don’t get to see much of the non-English speaking riders due to the language barrier. When there are good pictures and good videos of these riders it is nice to be able to see them.
Sometimes I feel very isolated from the world as an American. So many of us only speak english and miss out on a lot. I am one of those who only speaks english.
Last winter I had an opportunity to work with a french engineering student who was doing an internship with me at work. It was so much fun to work with her, get to know her and to learn and appreciate a little more about the French. She spoke french, english, japanese and a little german. In their school system, everybody learns french and english. When they are around 12 or 13, they choose a third language to study. Boy, did I feel like a simple, mono-lingual person around her. It was a great experience and has given me more desire to travel abroad. Hopefully for a uni related event someday.
