Hey, I'm German. If you want help, ask me. And yes, they sound different[b:0a8d376930]ly[/b:0a8d376930], but in grammar they are mostly same. But most people say German is more difficult to learn, because it has cases (correct word? I guess so... :wink:) Have a look in the German forum. There are a few "Learning-German-With-D-Foesch-and-Apple-101" threads.
@Julian: I'm not very good in Dutch, but of course I understood you :wink:
