    I know we have a lot of bi-lingual people on here, which is really impressive, some speak better than native English speakers. So my question is what other language would you like to speak fluently and why?

    I would want to speak Spanish or Portuguese (well, I was learning Spanish for a bit). This is because I already know a couple of languages, and knowing one of those two means that I’ve already covered a whole load of countries which I can speak in. Lots of other countries have their own languages which are just small differences to Spanish or Portuguese, such as Italy having Italian (not as much of a difference between Spanish, making it somewhat easy to understand).

    True. It's the same vice versa. A friend of mine is Italian and understand a lot of things in Spanish. I still want to learn Italian. If someone wants to share their experience on how to learn a language. I would appreciate that! :)
     
  4. Portuguese, because there's a village in Brazil populated mostly by women. I forget the name of it, but whilst I'm struggling with PMO I don't see me getting a Brazilian wife.

  6. Speaking the language is one thing, immersing yourself in the culture and being comfortable with it is another.

    Why sit and wish to speak that language when you can get up and learn it?

  13. Italian or Spanish. Also because I'm a bit of a hipster Esperanto or Elvish.

    Yo aprendo español porque yo vivo donde muchas personas lo hablan. Yo estudio español con Duolingo y unos libros.

  16. Italian, because I’ve always felt drawn to that country. Not romanticizing Italy, I know it has its problems, but something about the culture and history just really make me want to be a part of their country. Plus my fathers side is Italian so I’ve always wanted to explore where my family came from.

    I would have to go with German. I hear a lot of people say that it is a harsh sounding language (personally I think the oriental languages sound harsh). I just enjoy listening to people who speak it.

    The dialect is completely different and the word structure but it is totally worth exploring, I like studying all kinds of different languages!

  20. I've always wanted to be able to speak fluent ASL. Or I guess "sign" fluent ASL. I just think it's a beautiful language, and while people who speak another language can always learn to speak English if they come to the U.S., a lot of deaf people who are reliant on ASL dont have the option of learning another way to communicate. So I think it would be cool if more people learned ASL and could give them a break from having to read lips all the time.
