About Language by Country: The Language by Country videos and other materials were produced by the Five
College Center for the Study of World Languages between 1999 - 2003 with funding from the National Security
Education Program (NSEP) and the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) of the U.S.
Department of Education. The videos were filmed by Five College international students in their home countries.
The goal was to provide examples of authentic language spoken in its natural cultural environment so that students
of all ages can better understand the interplay between a language and its culture. We have tried to remain true to the
language our subjects actually uttered. Therefore, we have not corrected grammatical errors and the videos
sometimes show highly colloquial language, local slang, and regionally specific speech patterns. At times, we have
noted the preferred or more standard forms in parentheses. Most of the transcripts and translations were prepared by
the same students who filmed the video, although in some cases the transcripts have also been edited by a language
