    That's my French at it's best, I'm not even sure if it's completely correct.

    Le climat? L'hiver s'en vient pas mal vite!
    (Weather? Winter's coming pretty fast!)

    Si j'aime les panneau "Arrêt"... pas plus qu'une autre personne!
    (Do I like "Stop" signs? not more than anybody else!)

    It's "Qu'est-ce que", not "Quest-ce que", by the way. Also, in your question, it's badly formulated from the start. "Qu'" isn't needed here. "Est-ce que tu aime les panneaux d'arrêt?" is the correct way to write the question. "Qu'est-ce que" is a question that is meant to have a long answer and "Est-ce que" is more a "Yes" or "No" question. Exemples :

    Qu'est-ce que :

    "Qu'est-ce que tu fais là?"
    (What are you doing here?)

    "Qu'est-ce que tu va manger pour souper?"
    (What will you eat for dinner?)

    "Qu'est-ce que tu va faire aujourd'hui?"
    (What will you do today?)

    Est-ce que :
    "Est-ce que tu as eu une bonne note dans ton examen de français?"
    (Did you have a good result on your French exam?)

    "Est-ce que tu as mal dans le dos?"
    (Is your back aching?)

    "Est-ce que tu as suivi les procédure à la lettre concernant le montage de ton nouveal ordinateur?"
    (Did you follow the procedures by the book concerning the building of your new computer?)

    P.S Sorry for the late reply... I don't check those forums often.

    I'm really impressed with you guys. Seriously! I can just about manage English, and that's all. (Barely passed French and Spanish in school, and don't remember more than 25 words of either.)

    Well, I speak fluent English. Home language, so I'm forced to. I say fluent because I am better at grammar than half the people in this country.
    As for foreign languages, I'm learning French now and aspiring to learn Russian. A friend of mine is currently learning German and has been giving me a couple very small tidbits of what he's heard. Hopefully sometime he'll teach me some more useful things than Guten Tag. Hehe.
