4-Pfoten: Welcome in the Off-Topic! (girl friend is someone you're inlove with, as far as I know ;))
Hm, I've learned Frensh for 4 years. At first it was kinda strange but I liked it anyway. However, when we started reading some odd stories about "la guerre franco-allemande", I couldn't stand the subject anymore, so I decided to quit that course thus I've forgotten almost everything I've learned in those 4 years.
