Starting on basic functions for python, and this is a assignment that I have to do... but I keep getting a Error.. but I tried, and still don't understand what is wrong. here is what it's suppose to output:http://i39.tinypic.com/r1mv69.jpg

This is what I've done:

def function1(french):
    print "Bonjour, comment allez-vous ?"

def function2():
    print "Hola, cómo esta usted?"

def function3():
    print "Hello, hoe zijn u?"

def function4():
    print "Hallo, wie geht es Ihnen?"

#main

print\
"""
Hello, how are you?

while True:
    choice = input("Enter a language: (french, spanish, greek, dutch")
    if choice == french:
         function1(french)
         prints "Hallo, wie geht es Ihnen?"
    elif choice ==spanish:
         function2()
    elif choice == greek:
         function3()
    elif choice == dutch:
         function4()
    else:
         print "You have to choose from french, spanish, greek or dutch!"

raw_input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.")

Please help, thank you so much.
The teacher wants it so the user can ONLY type the choice and no numbers.

You are almost there, but you have to tell Python about all those foreign characters using a 'coding line' in the beginning of your code ...

def function1():
    print "Bonjour, comment allez-vous ?"

def function2():
    print "Hola, cómo esta usted?"

def function3():
    print "Hello, hoe zijn u?"

def function4():
    print "Hallo, wie geht es Ihnen?"

#main

print "Hello, how are you?"

while True:
    choice = raw_input("Enter a language (french, spanish, greek, german): ")
    if choice == "french":
         function1()
    elif choice == "spanish":
         function2()
    elif choice == "greek":
         function3()
    elif choice == "german":
         function4()
    else:
         print "You have to choose from french, spanish, greek or german!"

raw_input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.")

Wow, thank you. o_o
I would've never gotten that....

thank you so much =D

Just a thought, i cant see how it breaks out of the loop, so maybe move the other raw_input() in a bit:

def function1():
    print "Bonjour, comment allez-vous ?"

def function2():
    print "Hola, cómo esta usted?"

def function3():
    print "Hello, hoe zijn u?"

def function4():
    print "Hallo, wie geht es Ihnen?"

#main

print "Hello, how are you?"

while True:
    choice = raw_input("Enter a language (french, spanish, greek, german): ")
    if choice == "french":
         function1()
    elif choice == "spanish":
         function2()
    elif choice == "greek":
         function3()
    elif choice == "german":
         function4()
    else:
         print "You have to choose from french, spanish, greek or german!"

    if raw_input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.") == '':
        break
