How many different languages would you want to know? ( whether you could learn them easily or...
not ). Which ones?
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
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 want to learn spanish and french and i know english,hindi and gujrati
I know English, Russian, Ukrainian. I would like to learn Spanish.
I would like to be able too speak enough different languages just to be able to drive across this country and understand everyone that I encounter.
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!
Every language that there is, wouldn't that be cool. But that's not gonna happen. Does anyone have a universal translator for sale?

Do you speak another language? Is there one that you want to learn in the future?I'm a native English speaker, but I speak Portuguese rather fluently, since I've spent the past year and a half in Brazil. I used to study French and Spanish in high school, but I've forgotten quite a lot. If possible,...

Since I got bored on Facebook, and cannot sleep (it's 4:44AM here), I decided to create this forum to discuss how many hubbers can speak many languages. I am actually born in the Philippines, and particularly living in the second largest island called Mindanao, I can literally speak 3 languages,...

Did you grow up learning three languages at the same time? My children 6 and 3 are learning English-Spanish and French at the same time. They seem to be coping very well but I would like to hear about people who has done the same.
