Didn't know that. Cool! I've heard that if you learn Latin you can pick up all the Romantic languages, or something like that (at least Italian, aye). I'm not a language expert, but it all sounds promising.
I took ASL for 3 years in high school and loved it.
I think you're right. German and English were literally the same language a thousand or so years ago. I probably picked up more German in beer tents in Germany than from formal instruction (Strasse = street, Brod = bread, etc.).
Well i don't agree. If you live in the american continent, there is only 4 official languages. So, if you speak Portuguese, English, French and Spanish you can travel every aware and everyone understands you.
