The Lord's Prayer is a classic while studying languages. Once I read that it's the only text translated into every languages of the world (seems a bit exagerated).

Here goes the text in Gothic, a beautiful Germanic language. The þ reads like th in think and J reads like I.

Atta unsar þu in himinam weihnai namo þein      
qimai þiudinassus þeins wairþai wilja þeins      
swe in himina jah ana airþai.      
hlaif unsarana þana sinteinan gif uns himma daga
jah aflet uns þatei skulans sijaima      
swaswe jah weis afletam þaim skulam unsaraim      
jah ni briggais uns in fraistubnjai      
ak lausei uns af þamma ubilin      
unte þeina ist þiudangardi jah mahts      
jah wulþus in aiwins.

You didn't write which language this is. My guess would be Occitan, but maybe not not the regular dialect which I have seen before. Then I checked through Google and yes, it is Aranés, the Occitan dialect that is used in one single Spanish valley. Thanks for this rare glimpse of something really rare and valuable in the world of languages.

Gosh, I understood that! And the only phrase I ever knew is "Ich will ficken" which is not even remotely related.

Ist mein Deutsch gut, not Es mein Deutsch gut. In the second sentence, I see a critical error of verb misallocation.

Besides, how can anyone know about your German abilities if you only wrote two sentences? We need more than that to asses your German.

Devo dizer que não é muito fácil escrever textos longos e complexos do nada. Mas concordo que duas frases são completamente insuficientes para uma análise decente.

@ Satoshi: You could have tried putting an English translation so that I could understand what you were saying. As you can see, I haven't studied Portuguese at all. But thanks to Google Translate, I understood what you wrote, and personally agree completely with your second sentence.
