Me, myself and I

It's just not that simple.

Anyone of you a human dictionary?

Right now, I'm doing the PR of our department. That means basically scanning the published articles about the institute of the last two years, find out what they are all about, find the respective scientists and the name of the study.
Should be easy - that's what I thought.
I had no idea, that they expect me to speak all European languages fluently.
The easiest was Dutch - probably because if you know how to pronounce it, it's pretty similar to German.
But I've spent the last hour or so, reading two pages of an article in French, trying to figure what they were trying to tell me. And I have no clue. It's something about dogs and apes and pointing and... well, that's all I know ;)
Did I mention that I was a French major in high school? Embarassing, huh?
Oh, and there's another article in Greek (you know, with all the greek letters so that you can't google the crap) ... any takers? :D

Yup, if you want help with Dutch, I'm game. It's true that you'll be able to figure most out, I'm the same wither German (after years for study, mind you). My French is about as good as yours, I suspect. Did you know, by the way, that if you speak some German and Dutch, you can also figure out Scandinavian languages?
