Welcome to the Jungle, Barbarella!

Epic may not be the best place to gain English skills! Even the Bears who only know English mess it up.....regularly!

Enjoy your stay here!:

Hi Barbarella,

Welcome. I just returned from Austria (Graz and surroundings). Last Saturday I went with some friends to climb the Hohe Warte in Carinthia (Karnische Alpen) on the Klettersteig (fixed cable). When we got there the top half of the mountain was lightly covered with snow. Unfortunately there was enough snow and wet rock to make the free climbing sections pretty dangerous (I am not an experienced climber) so we turned back after the first section of the cable. However, with the hike up the valley and climbing we still got in 1200 meters. That one valley alone (like so many other valleys in Austria) would be deserving of national park status here in the States.

You live in a fantastically beautiful country!

"Grab me to the forum" sounds like you speak perfectly. Actually sounds like sweet music to my ears.

What is a Hohe Warte? A big wart or a someone high on the warthog? Whatever, grab all you want but just keep your nails filed low.

Don't cross the line.

She is Austrian not German. Is your German any better than your Austrian, Nobody?

German as used in Southern Germany and Austria is very melodious and pleasant to the ear. There are few grammar variations. Some vocabulary (culinary mostly) is unique to Bavaria and Austria.

When Austria entered the European Union it was a matter of national pride to insist on a unique Austrian language being recognized by EU officials. The attempt failed as the differences between standard German in Austria and the German used in Germany south of Benrath line are largely neglectable. The result of the ensuing discussion was a list of some 80 words, most of them referring to food, cooking ingredients and plants.
The differences between the national standards of German are often exaggerated.

The language spoken in Austria is German.

Most Austrian dialects belong to the High German family - together with most dialects of Southern Germany and Bavaria. The differences between Middle German (as used in Central Germany) and High German (Bavaria and Austria) are often exaggerated.

When you consider it that way I guess my hike was right next to climbing the Grand Teton:

In case you are really interested here is an english web page on it:

barbarella, welcome to EpicSki... I hope you get great snow this year, and one of these decades, I'll get over there to ski...

As regards your language skills, there are few here who actually speak or type well-formed English. So you'll not have an problems, I would expect. If you do, start typing in your native tongue and shut 'em up.

Once again, welcome...
