The BBC has a great page with links to audio samples of basic phrases in the different languages of Europe: http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/european_languages/languages/index.shtml I like most of the ones I've listened to. Some of them are really funny. The Norwegian clips remind me of the Yooper accent. And Basque is just crazy fast! A lot of them say "hey" for "hello", and I wonder why that is. The real difference between Dutch and Flemish only seems to be the choice of words. Luxembourgish sounds like a French guy speaking German, or maybe the other way around. The differences among the Scandinavian languages, to me, seems to be somewhat comparable to the differences among the major standard dialects of English. Tell me what you guys think of this.
