What languages do you speak?

34 posts in this topic

Eyyy. Anyone bilingual or on the journey of multilingualism?

 

I paid a bunch of money to learn Mandarin and so far, all it was good for was to be insulted in Chinese, get told I'm ugly in Chinese and have my evil neighbours bother me in Chinese. So, a very good investment.

English and Spanish here because of where I live. Just started taking Mandarin classes, definitely been insulted in Chinese on multiple occasions by a friend that speaks it. Also can write/speak a little bit of Norwegian.

 

Languages are pretty cool.

English and German (native language). Tried to learn Spanish and Russian in school and Chinese when I was living in Toronto. Never stuck with any of them though.

Wow, such a diverse pool of languages. I forgot to mention I am learning Korean at work but this is my last lesson. My Czech colleague has offered to secretly add me to the lessons though and I just pay the difference for a group session.

Finnish (native), English, Swedish and some Estonian. Also studied a bit of German back in high school but didn't really get far with that. All I can do pretty much is introduce myself and ask where's the nearest bar. Then again I doubt I'll need much more if I ever find myself in Germany.

"I'm fluent in Sarcasm lololol funny right?"
-Snark was then shot and dragged into a dark alleyway, never to be seen again.

 

I speak french and english... technically french is my native tongue, but these days I never use it, except if I'm reading something dofus-related, something in the news, or comedians on youtube, if I'm honest. I know some spanish, heard it growing up through family and classes, but it never really stuck. It helps that it's very similar to french, and as a result i can understand it pretty well, but I can't/refuse to speak it. :P

 

I watched a shit ton of anime w/ subs and took a couple japanese classes, does that count??

hilarious... :l

I'm fluent too, lololol

 

Quite jealous of you lot since I never really learnt another language, anything else I try just ends up butchered. I guess my French is mediocre at best though.

Problem being a native English speaker is I can just get by as a tourist on the assumption everyone else has at least basic knowledge of it, which causes me to become complacent in learning anything new. Being a lazy sod half the time doesn't exactly help either.

It's never too late to pick up a language! I had classmates who were grandparents..

I've tried learning whatever the language is of the culture I've moved to, so I know a bit of Arabic, Macedonian, and Korean.  I know lots of westerners who have lived in S.Korea for +5 years and cannot even handle a basic conversation of "where are you from, how long have you lived here, how old are you", etc. My motivation is to not be like them. =')

Let's apply these language skills to life and Dofus:

  1. How much for that crimson Dofus?
  2. That's too expensive! Can you make it cheaper?
  3. I'm lost.
  4. It wasn't me, I swear.
  5. Wanna go out some time ;)?
  6. Oh ok, I understand, I had to wash my hair yesterday too.

Dutch (native)

English 

French

German (although speaking has become harder as I haven't been able to practice it much)

 

Plus a whole bunch of words that I know in other languages (Spanish, Turkish, Arabic, ...) but nothing close to the languages mentioned above.

Dutch and English.

 

I can understand quite some German words, but speaking is kinda low.

 

Would love to learn more languages, but im too lazy and busy playing games. xD

  1. كم لازم ادفاع لال كريمسين دوفاس؟
  2. حئو كتير, نزل ال سعر
  3. انا ضايع
  4. مش انا, والا
  5. بدك نطلع مع بعض؟
  6. انا فاهم, انا حتا نظفت شعري امبارح

 

Rofl, that took me forever to write. Finding those letters on my keyboard was a real pain in the ass lmao.

 

PS: I don't suggest you google translate this because I basically typed all of this in Jordanian-Arabic (not the formal Arabic which is seen in the news, used in politics etc). Most Arabs tend to follow their own traditional Arabic language when talking to people (So for example, an Egyptian would talk in Egyptian-Arabic to other people), it's just so much easier than the formal Arabic.
