Also I would like to study Mandarin, as this would replace English as the worlds most spoken language in our lifetime!

Default Re: What language(s) would you like to study MOST?

well, I would like to try learning Spanish (many people speak it) one day and maybe keeping my French from school a bit up to date (I don't practise it enough, I unlearn how to speak too fast)... maybe even Turkish a little (2nd language in Germany)


But besides this, I wouldn't put ANY effort in learning other languages, because I wouldn't get enough use out of it (only if I lived in that country, then I would learn) and it would be nothing but wasted time for me, therefore I won't come up saying something "exotic" now how much I would love to learn Chinese, Japanese, ... or things like that

Russian, above all others.

I would like to improve my French and German as well, right now I kind of suck at them. Spanish and Italian would be nice as well.

Default Re: What language(s) would you like to study MOST?

I wouldn't like to study any language, due to my laziness. But I would love to be naturally gifted in Russian. Possibly also French, not because of its exciting phrases :| but because its sexy, and useful lol!
Although German is more useful for business, France has everything inside it (skiing terrain, hot terrain, everything) so they barely need to transact outside of France.

My 900th post guys.. That deserves some rep?!

Well right now im learning French and I know some Latin. I would really like to learn hebrew since I never had time to go to Hebrew school growing up so I only know a little.

I would love to learn Russian one day, French would be cool as well but I need to brush up my Portuguese first, thank god I have some lovely people who are willing to help me with it. Actually I´m into learning foreign languages because it´s quite interesting and I enjoy bragging about which languages I can speak or I am able to understand.

Portuguese is the most beautiful language ever. Spanish is also nice but Portuguese beats it by a mile.
