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

My native language is Hindi and I also speak English and German fluently, and I'm currently learning French. There are loads of languages that I want to learn but top of my list are Latin, Russian, Urdu and Arabic. And Spanish.

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

I'd like to learn Korean, as a few of my friends come from there. I'd also love to learn Cantonese. When I was about 2 or something, I had a Cantonese friend who didn't know much English, so we created a language of both languages mixed together. I wish I could remember what it sounded like.

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

I would love to learn Chinese. As the most common language in the world, it seems like it would be the most useful.

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

I would like to learn a Native American language. Possibly Lakota (as popularized in a lot of movies). I feel like if I learned it, I'd be contributing a positive thing to this world because it's a dying language.

I also want to continue Spanish and become fluent, and learn French.

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

Well, I already said German which I would love to learn. Lately, I've been wanting to know Russian too, so Russian would have to be my second.

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

I had a friend before who was very fluent in speaking Spanish and I really admire her. That was the time when I got the interested to learn for that language. But that was 1 year ago and I already forgot what I have learned, since I have no time to focus on it.

If time permits, I will continue learning Spanish Language.

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

I can speak German, English and French (I can't speak French fluently, it's too complicated I first have to think about which grammar form I must use, and aww..)
If I could learn another language I'd probably choose Japanese. I really like it and know some words and phrases already, it's not very much though. The problem is that I think it is probably quite stressful to learn all the Kanji.

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

My native is Spanish, I know English and I'm currently studying French. When I'm satisfied with my French (who knows when that will be ) I would like to tackle Arabic or Guaraní (a language that is original from South America, widely spoken in Paraguay and in the Argentinean provinces near the Paraguayan border).

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

All languages are so beautiful. I was listening to the multi-language dub of When You Believe, and I felt that-the song apart-all languages were so, so beautiful. I'd find difficulty in choosing one language to study.

French is a very romantic language, I think. But I heard it's difficult.
