German

das Pech - bad luck.

Pech haben - to be unlucky.

Levi - No problem, good on you! I'm considering putting German on the backburner and dabbling in Chinese. It's looking even more appealing by the day.

Go for it! It may seem fascinating on the surface, but you have no idea how truly fascinating a language it is until you get into it. People say it's extremely hard, but I think the difficulty of Chinese is definitely overstated. The characters are the one particularly tricky part, and even they are only a minor obstacle with the right learning methods. Besides that, the language is pretty

容易 (róngyì)
'easy', Mandarin

Stanovanje (n) - a flat, Slovenian.

Levi - Thanks for the encouragement. I am not sure how it is for other learners, but the characters, although they will be frustrating at first, will also be fascinating to me, and their difficulty will probably encourage me to learn more.

The beauty of the characters does provide a lot of motivation to learn them. The complex ones become easier once you get used to the component parts, and there are plenty of easy ones like:

土 (tǔ)
'earth, soil' - Mandarin

and

太 (tài)
'too (much), excessively, very, wife' - Mandarin
