Languages; What Are Yours?

What languages do you speak - or are learning to speak - just out of interest and curiosity?

Still learning, but can speak pretty well: Español and Français

Obviously my first language is English, though.

Re: Languages; What Are Yours?

English (obviously), a fairly good amount of Spanish and a tiny bit of French and German but don't count them because it's really only counting to 10 and useless stuff like that.

And I know how to say yes in Russian as well. smile

Re: Languages; What Are Yours?

Once you can count to 100, it gets quite easy to go further - Like 1000. Quite easy in Spanish to do that, IMO.

I can say the alphabet in Hebrew, but it doesn't help anywhere. tongue

Re: Languages; What Are Yours?

Who speaks latin? Just because someone can speak English doesn't mean they can speak Latin. They're two different things.

That phrase. I may have heard it once, but I always forget latin sentences and phrase whenever speaks some to me, unless I like the sound of the words, or they are fun to say.

Re: Languages; What Are Yours?

I went shopping in Peshawar once! I have also been to Rawalpindi and Lahore.

I recall going to a town near the Khyber pass called Landikotal. We travelled to the Afghan Border and I stepped over the border for a few seconds smile

All I remember of Urdu is things like pani (water), acha (ok), jeldi (quickly), and a few others.

Re: Languages; What Are Yours?

The only Latin I know is Carpe Diem.

But that doesn't count because it's from Dead Poets Society. Has anyone seen it?
