    I speak English, but I want to become fluent in Spanish (since I already kind of know it). I also want to learn Sign Language. I just love that form of language. I know it is a necessity for some, but I just find it a beautiful way of expressing oneself.

    Other than those, I guess I wouldn't mind learning German... just because I think in general the language sounds mad all the time... so when my husband pisses me off I could just yell at him in German.

    I am currently learning to speak Dutch.

    English is my native language. If I could snap my fingers and learn any language I want, well, I would learn them all smile

    Once I learn Dutch fluently though I would like to learn Spanish.

    I speak Hungarian, Serbian, Croatian, English, German and would love to learn French, Japanese and Chinese languages.
    One is worth as many people as the languages one knows.

    I'm tri- lingual, i speak English, french, and creol, i can understand a little bit of italian. I was learning portuguesse when i was in brazil, and was getting quite good at it, and it was such a big dissapointment when I had to move away. as i love travelling I love meeting new people and learning new languages. I have a friend of mine who can speak 11 languages.very impressive.

    I know one proficiently and spend half my time dazed,confused and misunderstood. Can't imagine the mess I would be in if that were multiplied by different languages. Tried sign language once and that damn, one finger, kept gettin in the way. The only time I wish I knew another language is when she says, "we need to talk", but, my experience tells me that she would speak it fluently.

    Whether I could learn them easily or not makes a difference! If I could do it, I'd want to learn every language there is (even the dead ones!). However, at the moment I am only fluent in English, though I am able to carry on basic conversations in Spanish, Italian and Russian. I would really like to perfect my knowledge in these languages, and also learn Hindi, Vietnamese, Cantonese, and Portuguese!... Oh and German too.

    Well my mother tongue is German, in school I learned English, French and Latin, during my university studies in addition I learned some Dutch. And I am a native Frisian and so also speak Frisian.

    Some of my relatives live in Spain so that I learned over the years a few sentences and with French and Latin I already can read a lot of Spanish, so probably the next language will be Spanish.

    But I am also interested in exotic languages like Hebrew and Arab. These languages use totally different letters and write from right to the left.

    I think it is good in business to know many languages.

    Mandarin would be good! Failing that, Spanish. That would definitely come in useful.

    I would like to speak and understand all languages. I communicate in several, all of them Indo-European, but am aware of how inadequate I am in all. I believe that language is a wonderful tool to forge friendships with. Next, I would like to learn a language from a different root such as Arabic or Mandarin. I believe each language we use allows us to form different thought patterns.

    I would like to learn how to speak Spanish and Chinese, but I would like to learn how to read in Hebrew, Ancient Greek, German and French. I am a minister and a significant amount of the literature that i would like to read to increase my biblical knowledge was written in German (by Martin Luther) or French (by John Calvin). I grew up in the southwest and would like to know Spanish, as it is spoken frequently in shops and businesses. I would also like to learn Chinese because I personally see that being the language that the all international business will be using in the next few years and while not a business person I would like to know what is going on beyond my own backyard. Nice question, looking forward to reading all the answers!
