Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

Now I can speak three languages: Italian (which is my 1st language), English and French.
I'd like to learn Spanish as well since it's quite similar to Italian so it has to be easy to learn. I understand it and speak a few words but I'm not fluent at all.
As for German, I've always considered it a very tough language. Some friends of mine study it and they have a very hard time learning it...

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

I'd like to learn Korean. My mom has this thing about me learning it. I also really like the way it all looks sometimes. Thai and Arab looks so pretty too. I know English, Spanish, Japanese and French.

*plooka plooka*

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

I'd like to be able to speak French fluently. It's such a beautiful language, and the sound of it is just...awww <3
I also like Italian very much, and I'd like to be able to speak Swedish. Suaheli has a nice sound to it, too.
...there are just so many nice languages, it's difficult to decide! xD

But I guess, my highest priority lies with French.
I'm actually learning right now, but I'm still on a very basic level.

Moi je parle français couramment ^^ I've been 6 months in France thanks to the Erasmus project and it was a very useful journey. It helped me improve my language skills. I recommend that everyone does such an experience

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

Languages I know are German, English, and Mandarin Chinese.
Languages I'd love to know include the likes of Norwegian, Russian, Finnish, and perhaps Old English.

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

Other than the German I am currently learning?

Probably either Russian or Japanese.

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

I know Dutch and English very well and have a good knowledge of French and Russian and basic knowledge of German. There's so many languages I would like to learn but Romanian and one or more of the Scandinavian languages are high on my list. I'm definitely going to learn one or more languages in the future.

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

I already know a few words in more than 10 languages. I really want to learn more Mandarin Chinese. I know English which is my native tongue. I love languages. I lack the motivation to learn by myself though.

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

I would love to be fluent in Latin. I've spent the last year taking university classes on it and have really enjoyed the language.

Also, having good knowledge in Latin will help learning languages a helluva lot easier

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

There are so many languages I want to learn! I want to learn Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Korean because the area I live in is very multi-cultural and I think it would be so much fun to communicate with my community members in their language. I want to learn French so I can read The Little Prince in it's original language and I want to learn Russian so I can read Crime and Punishment in it's original language (two of my favorite books). I also want to learn Arabic and at least one African language (I'm not sure if Arabic counts?) so that I can have learned languages of all the continents (almost). And than, I want to learn how to speak in a British and Australian accent mainly because 1) I will be able to read the British versions of the HP books out loud and authentically! and 2) I will finally be able to differentiate between the two accents. I know that's a lot of languages to learn but it gives me a lot of options.

Re: If you could learn another language, which would it be?

My motivation to learn multiple languages is to be able to communicate effectively in multiple countries. You can cover a significant number of people/places if you can speak English, Spanish, French and Russian. I'd like to learn German and Arabic though I'm not sure if that will happen.
