PostSubject: what languages do you speak?   Mon Sep 01, 2008 11:12 am

Apparently a comment I made concerning knowing multiple languages got people intrigued. So here's a thread just for that purpose.... for you to let us know what languages you know.




I am most proficient in American English.
I also speak in Vietnamese well enough for everyday conversation. I cannot read Vietnamese.
I also speak a little bit of Spanish and the Chinese dialect of Tao Chew (not sure if this is how you spell it.)

I also know a few German curses thanks to a German American friend but I don't think that really counts. lol

Well, I can pretty much the best with English, seeing how English is my 1st language.

After English, would be Chinese. I can read, write and understand by listening most of the dialects. I can only speak Mandarin and Cantonese though.

I can understand Japanese when they speak but I can't read,write or speak. My mom taught me Japanese. But I never tried to speak or anything else besides listening.

That's about it...

Hey, I'm the same except the Spanish, Chinese, and German part, but I do know French. I'm going to start learning Japanese and Chinese soon. Just an add on, I'll learn Korean too if I have the time.

Actually English is a mixture of many languages. First it was from German, the foundation of English, this was when the Germanic tribes invaded Anglo-Saxons after the fall of Rome. As there was no written language, they adapted many of the Latin and Greek letters and grammatical rules. The viking's invasion then influenced the language even more. The during the Norman's invasion, they brought in french terms.

So there you have British English. From there, many other native languages influenced the language, resulting in American English, Manglish, Singlish and other forms of languages.

So the english language is still evolving and has not stop developing.

But pretty much everywhere besides america uses Brit English (if I'm not wrong).

The languages that I know how to speak so far are English (fluent), Cantonese (somewhat fluent) , Mandarin (a bit), and im learning how to speak Spanish along with Japanese. ^-^ Yay. I really like to learn about languages just because it's so interesting about how each one is different and how they all have a different way at saying words >_<

english is my 1st (and only) language.
i tried to take spanish in high school but failed horribly. the reading and writing was fine for me but all my tests were verbal.
i picked up american sign language pretty fast but i've got no way to keep in practice. i rarely talk to hearing people as is so i don't see myself going out of my way to find Deaf people to converse with.

I can speak/read/write/live/breathe both British and American English (quite a feat I know but that's what living in Ireland will do...though many would argue that Irish English has NOTHING to do with English English...anyway). I also read/write/speak/understand French though my vocabulary has taken a beating the last couple years since I've had no one to talk to (tear...tear...). I can understand and read bits of Gaelic and Welsh though mostly I'll just stare at you, tilt my head to the side and go "huh?". I can understand and read German fairly well though my vocabulary is quite small. Same with Latin (however useful that is outside of medieval history). If they speak slowly I can understand parts of Italian and Spanish or at least reason out a large portion of it. I also can understand spoken Cherokee and some a little bit of Russian (hopefully more in future if I can get my friend to talk more). Essentially I can parrot back anything I hear so speaking languages isn't too bad, reading is a bit more difficult and I kind of suck at writing other languages unless I've actually been taught them. Oh, I also know a bit of Elvish if anyone's a Tolkein fan (I'm weird and have a random array of interests I know already!).
