Speak any other languages besides English?

Recommended Posts

I've been currently studying French and it's been a rather slow process. There aren't many French speakers around me, but I am slowly trudging through with Rosetta Stone and some audio programs. Do you guys speak any other languages besides English?

 

I got into the French language after becoming a big fan of their music, arts, and style. They really seem like the originators of what we consider to be the front page of a Vogue magazine cover. Even watching their music videos from 30 years ago has had me saying that they were way ahead of their time. Their idea of romance and sexuality as well seems much more open and liberal as well. :-)

I'm a 2nd Generation Korean-American so I am Bilingual, though not fluently, to my parents dismay. I'm pretty good at English though which is kind of a downer since I feel if I had properly learned Korean when I was young, I'd be good at speaking/writing it as well. Rosetta Stone is cool. Have you heard of Duolingo for smartphones? It's pretty much the same thing as Rosetta Stone on mobile devices and you can even speak through your mic to say words and phrases, just on a smaller scale with fewer languages. I believe French is one of them though.

 

Speaking of, I took French in High School because 80% of the school chose Spanish and those two were the only languages offered. My professor was a Tunisian-born immigrant, Mr. Lengliz, and he was probably the nicest, most gentlemanly teacher I knew at the time. Anyway, maybe it's being American but I feel like French people hate us lol.

I took spanish in high school mostly because a very large majority of california speaks spanish. I however no longer possess the ability to speak it at all really. I can however understand it.

 

Also know quite a bit of japanese, its amazing what you can learn watching anime's.

Wow ... that old guy's accent, I would not understand him speaking in person. He even says it makes talking difficult where he lives! I can barely understand this girl, wouldn't mind listening with my eyes though lol.

hers is about as clear as English sounds to me with little accent.

Id say mines a lot thicker.

 

Send her a message on her youchoob channel and tell her you are going to give her a right good bit of pasty. ;)

I want to subscribe to her channel just to see more of her. I'd have nothing to do with the accent though. Seems like some kind of secret code.

LOL right good bit of pasty. I don't think there's an American-English way of saying that without sounding like a porno, unfortunately.

I didn't have much trouble understanding the old blokes or the girl, except when they started using unusual words. The girl was speaking a bit fast in the beginning though.

 

We have a number of English TV shows here from the BBC, so I've heard that accent before, although I didn't know it was Yorkshire.
