Re: Introduction thread(s)

Yes, I’ve seen the German area. Btw, are you the guy who talked about Romlangs at the LCC? If so, we’ve already met, we quickly talked about the awesomeness of the Romansh word s-charpa :P

Good in what way? I assume you’re referring to me learning a minority language, but I’d like some clarification :)
