Default Game of Linguistics!!

Let's see how many of you out there are linguists!
Or are handy with Google Translate.
Here are the rules of the game. You say something in one language.
EX: The Apple. (English)
Then, someone else has to say a different sentence that begins with the last letter of the last word in the previous sentence-- but in another language!! Sound confusing? Here's a continuation of the example:
EX: The apple. (English) *The apple.*
EX: Es delicioso. (Spanish) *Is delicious.*

Then you continue. You can reuse a language, but only after 6 consecutive sentences have been written where the language hasn't been used. Here's a good example of a conversation:
EX: The apple. (English) *The apple.*
EX: Es delicioso. (Spanish) *Is delicious.*
EX: Oui! Je suis d'accord. (French) *Yes! I agree.*
EX: Dunkle Schokolade ist besser. (German) *Dark Chocolate is better.*

Get it now? It can actually get pretty fun. You can probably tell from the examples, but let me clarify the format for your sentences:
Sentence in whatever language(Name of Language in Parenthesis)*Translation into English within stars*
The colors don't mean anything but to distinguish the appropriate parts of the post.
Note: The sentences don't have to be relevant! Also, translation is required, even for English!
Ready? Go!

Your post was supposed to start with "o" because "helado" ends in "o". Confusing, I know, but, no problem! We'll just continue on.

Os tópicos estão a ficar cada vez mais aleatório! Eu acho que vou mudar as regras para que as sentenças não têm de se relacionar. Em troca eu vou mudar a regra de linguagem, para que mais línguas deve ser falado antes que eles possam ser repetidos. A partir de agora, você tem que esperar 6 posts antes de reutilizar uma língua em vez de 3. Vou notificar linguistico83 e pedir-lhe para mudar o post original. (Portuguese)
*The topics are becoming more random! I think I'll just change the rules to that the sentences don't have to relate. In exchange I'll change the language rule so that more languages must be spoken before they can be repeated. From now on, you have to wait 6 posts before reusing a language instead of 3. I will notify linguistico83 and ask him to change the original post.*

Lol. I changed the Original Post to reflect the rule change... and your current status on here! Welcome back, my friend. And look... we managed to change the game while playing the game! Game-ception! (English)*Lol. I changed the Original Post to reflect the rule change... and your current status on here! Welcome back, my friend.

All right! Restarting the game. The rules have been changed and the format of the Original Post has been changed so that the main points are the most noticeable. Let's make a new game from here to reflect the new rules.
