    Girl wakes from coma speaking German

    A CROATIAN girl has woken from a coma speaking fluent German that she didn't previously know, and is now totally unable to talk in her native tongue.

    The 13-year-old girl, who lost consciousness for 24 hours two weeks ago, has doctors baffled by her bizarre condition.

    She had been studying German at school and watching German television shows, but her parents insist she was previously unable to communicate properly in the language.

    "You never know when recovering from such a trauma how the brain will react," the UK Telegraph quoted KB Hospital director Dujomir Marasovic as saying.

    Various experts have examined the teenager, from the southern Croatian town of Knin, but all have failed to make a diagnosis.

    this is an amazing story about how the mind works. I once met a guy who lived in Vietnam untill he was 6 years old, and 30 years later, after he had thought he had forgotten how to speak vietnames, he met a girl from vietnam and within a few months he was completely fluent. Really amazing ..

    So the brain retains far more than we think it does? Why is all this extra stuff hidden? How can I access it all?

    She must have thought she'd woken up in hell and chose the appropriate language.

    My sister ( like me) lived in turkey for 20 months and she was fluent in turkish and she does not speak turkish well now, but i amm sure she will speak fluently turkish if she would go to turkey for a few months, so that's not amazing

    No, then she would have spoken English. (The British or American variety depending on which side of hell she thought she had landed on)
