I had French in highschool, but I forgot most of it, because I never used it. Why are you learning French?

I also had French in high school, but I recall that meaning how come you decided to learn French.

Babelfish (from AltaVista) is good if you need to translate some phrases.

Do they teach you how to French kiss?
You should learn to 'Australian kiss'. It's like the French kiss, but we do it down-under.

"My name is Jesper. How are you? What is that?"

Watch out with Babelfish. It's definitely not a good tool to learn a new language - it sometimes returns some really strange translations. Machine-translating languages is a very difficult problem which hasn't been really solved yet.

Just for fun, try translating a few sentences from English to another language and then back to English. Repeat it a few times. You'll most likely get amusing results.

For example:

1. Juste pour l'amusement, l'essai traduisant quelques phrases de l'anglais � une autre langue et puis de nouveau � l'anglais. R�p�tez-la plusieurs fois. Vous obtiendrez tr�s probablement des r�sultats amusants.

2. Just for the recreation, the test translating some sentences of English to another language and then again with English. Repeat to it several times. You will most probably obtain amusing results.

3. Juste pour la r�cr�ation, l'essai traduisant quelques phrases de l'anglais � une autre langue et de l'autre c�t� avec l'anglais. R�p�tition � elle plusieurs fois. Vous obtiendrez le plus probablement des r�sultats amusants.

4. Just for the recreation, the test translating some sentences of English to another language and other side with English. Repetition with it several times. You will most probably obtain from the amusing results.

5. Juste pour la r�cr�ation, l'essai traduisant quelques phrases de l'anglais � une autre langue et de tout autre c�t� avec l'anglais. R�p�tition avec elle plusieurs fois. Vous obtiendrez le plus probablement � partir des r�sultats amusants.

6. Just for the recreation, the test translating some sentences of English to another language and any other side with English. Repetition with it several times. You will most probably obtain starting from the amusing results.

Jesper,
Good point about babelfish. I usually only use it for common words or short common phrases that I've forgotten.
