How many language do you speak, and what language are you learning right now

Recommended Posts

just curious

 

anyway for me I know 4.01 

Mandarin, Taiwanese(Hokkien), Japanese, English (maybe)

learning German right now, where that 0.01 come from, I would say it's awfully hard to say it, especially those R and Ich

Native English speaker who failed Spanish in middle school (didn't even figure out the alphabet levels of failed) and made the mistake of taking Latin in high school. Currently on my second year of it and I can only describe it as the language equivalent of stubbing your toe on a landmine. For any middle school students on Doomworld (which I'm sure is most of y'all) considering learning Latin, abandon all hope ye who enter here.

English. It's my only language and I'm still trying to get it right, damn it.

Can speak in two languages. I can also read in Arabic, though I can't write and for understanding the meanings, I have my Quran with two languages and thanks to that I can read the Arabic meaning.

 

Now trying French. I'd say it's quite difficult for me to learn from scratch. Having fun on learning though :D

Fluently, 3.

Russian, which is native.
English, which is semi native.
French, which is acquired but I speak it on a near native level at this point.

Somewhat, Spanish. I can understand it when spoken to or when reading, but I lack the memory and words to actually speak it myself beyond some very basic conversation. This is due to working with quite a lot of Spaniards.

I used to learn Mandarin about a decade ago, but abandoned the idea and since have forgotten most of it beyond maybe 3 or 4 sentences.

Whenever I get a break from IRL issues (and stop being lazy), I do plan on finalizing my Spanish knowledge. If THAT gets done at some point, then there's two more languages I'd like to learn, those being Farsi (Spoken predominantly in Iran. A variation of Farsi called Dari is spoken in Afghanistan.) and Japanese.

I am a native third grade English speaker.  The more time I spend in programming and software engineering, the more I think of the world as code and other weird structures which somehow is beginning to affect some of my non-technical communications outside of business rather drastically, especially typing.

I speak fluent English and decent, understandable French (I sometimes have trouble finding the correct words in French, but then again my English vocab is strangely somewhat limited too, so there ya go).

 

I'd also like to learn Italian down the line.

I'm not fluent in anything besides English, but I do speak both conversational German and Mandarin. I wanted to learn Taiwanese and Suzhounese dialects of Chinese since I want to go to Taiwan and Suzhou, but my Mandarin will probably have to make do for a while.

Je ne parle pas Francais

Le maison et dan l'oiseau

that's my butchering of French. Canada is a bilingual country and I had French class up to grade 9. I know a mix of various French words, mostly learned from food labels.

I speak French (native language), quite acceptable English and Python, what I remind of German, Scilab and C, notions of Bash and LaTeX, a few words of Spanish, Breton, Japanese, Russian and Perl.

Portuguese and English. My Spanish is okay since it's similar to my native language and I studied it also at school. German I chose because I like challenges lol. Then I went over some Japanese, Korean and Russian, and the current last language I tried is Thai :)

Can speak:
Spanish: Native (Venezuela)
English: Almost Native (or that's what I like to think U_U)

Learning:
Japanese: Few words/Kanjis (at least can understard few sentences), being a native Spanish speaker helped a lot :P
Latin: Few words, more avanced than Jap cuz I'm a native Latin-based language speaker heh

I'm not learning, but can read most of the times:
Portuguese: Can read fairly good, thanks to being similar heh
Basically, all Latin-based languages except French, Romanian (yes, Romanian is a latin language) and Spanish-based Filipino languages (due having also words from his native language) :P
Canadian: "I'm not you friend, buddy!"

English and a tiny bit of German because i discovered the German folk rock and metal scene is awesome. Still learning it. It is fascinating to see the similarities to English.

Native French speaker here. Since I live in Quebec I've been learning English since 4th grade. I'd like to say I'm pretty damn fluent at it now considering that I moved to Montreal (which is as bilingual a city you'll find up there) and my job requires me to constantly speak English.

The "Problem" with romanian is:
After Rome fall, they were more isolated from "us", the vulgar latin in spain and italy went through exactly same chances in grammar.
Romanian stayed more in line with the latin grammar.
Later they adopted slavic words.

But simple sentence can be understand and with some training also the reading of complex ones.

French had a celtic influence in its very beginning, later a big german impact (vice versa they influenced english, making it harder to understand for other germanic languages^^).
The french language also hates the poor S = ecole = escuela, etat = estado, escapar = echapper

What did the poor S do to you french? Whaaat :( ?


Ah, italian hate the X , they chance it with an S or SS.

And spanish, we fear to let the S alone, we put an E infront (escuela = scuola, estado = stato, esperanza = speranza (italian).
Why? What do we fear from the S that it needs company?
