What languages do you speak?
#1
Hey boys,I want to know just how many languages can you speak fluently?Here in SA,there are 11 official languages & I can only speak 3.You can imagine how difficult it is to converse with different people!I speak English,Afrikaans & a little Zulu.My Hebrew is really rusty though!

I was born in England but live in Jersey in the Channel Islands, so I speak English, French and (rather bizarrely) German. I can read some Spanish and Italian, but I not THAT conversant with them as languages.

!?!?! Shadow !?!?!
#3
Spanish (birth language) and English very well
#4
Do you speak mainstream Spanish in Argentina, or is Argentinian a stylised version of the regular Spanish ?

It's just that Spanish is the next language I'm probably going to learn, so I was wondering if I might be able to try and speak with you in Spanish at some point once I'm a bit (read: CONSIDERABLY) more comfortable with it ?

Cheers mon ami !

Thats pretty cool.
I speak english fluently, but I know some Modern Greek, a little German, and tidbits of other languages (French, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Italian - basically saying hello, goodbye, thank you, your welcome sort of thing)
Reading wise, I can read Latin and Ancient Greek since its what I study (and incidently I have a midterm tomorrow in Greek Lyric Poetry).
In the end, it boils down to two simple choices. Either you do or you don't. You'd think with all the problems in this world, there'd be more answers. It's not fair... but its the way things are. The choice is yours. ~ Zidane Tribal

It's just English for me really... although I did do German for 5 years in school... and got an A grade for my GCSE, but I've forgotten most of it.

But I've a basic english...:frown: And it's not enough for travel in anglo-saxon countries, same thing for english canada... A day, I will be able to speak english! I promise me.Confusedmile:
