Languages you want to learn?

I need to learn Spanish. I live in California, and in the ghetto, it's sorta required. Vietnamese I don't really have to learn, but it's the third most popular language around these parts. Swedish too, since half my family is in Sweden, and Swedish is basically learning Norwegian, Danish, etc. And Japanese for imported RPGs.

You?

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

Re: Languages you want to learn?

I'm taking third year French....which isn't all too much fun, but I like it better than Spanish at any rate. Those are the only two languages my high school offers.

I myself take an interest in Gaelic, Romanian and Latin (my father is helping to teach me the last, and I do online studying for the first two).

Italian sounds kind of cool, too.
& that Old-English Saxon Speak has a nice ring to it. (ie - what Beowulf was originally written in)

Re: Languages you want to learn?

Spanish (second most spoken language in US after all) Brazilian Portuguese and French (for travelling around Europe/West Africa).

And maybe Swahili or something to break Romance language-tardness.

Languages are awesome. Smile

Re: Languages you want to learn?

I'm starting to learn Vietnamese, and Spanish. I would like to learn Italian, French, Romanian, Mandarin, and a score of other languages, but I don't think I would be able to retain everything I learn.

Mandarin -- there you go! Both useful and poetic.

Love how half the posts on this topic include the word "Japanese."

Tongues would be pretty sweet to learn. And ASL.

I seem to be winning a lot of things lately. Hm, must be a good week.

But yeah, I would much like to learn something the above three languages. Not like " El carro de Adam es fenomenal. " is going to help me anytime soon.

As do I - and they offer Spanish, German, French, and Latin. But I was denied French and Latin, and didn't want German.
