I'm trying to teach myself Icelandic online right now. The pronunciation is really hard. :eyeroll:

Otherwise, I take French, Spanish, and German at school. Almost done with French, though.

Oh my god, that's a lotta languages. You're like my sis. Since I can't boast about my language proficiency, I'll boast about hers.

Umm, lets see, French(kinda), German(currently studying), Japanese(gonna resume, paused learning it cuz she had exams). She's looking for Korean classes now. -__- really, lady? So many??

That sounds awesome! :shiny: Is she doing them for work-/travel-related reasons, or just for fun?

And I struggle with ONE other language!
Question for any one currently learning two or more languages: Do you ever get the words mixed up? Like try saying something in French and you accidentally say it in Italian?

I once said "Are you sure you´re not a little bit drunk?" in Danish, except the word 'drunk' came out in English, yet pronounced with the wierd Danish accent we´ve got up here. That´s been transformed into a running joke between me and some of my friends now. :laughing:

I occasionally wish I knew foreign asian languages so I could bust it out to friends/random people and watch jaws drop. Alas, I am not gifted with speaking in tongues. :(

I'd love to speak another language! But alas, all I can do is quote Shakespeare (which is considered a foreign language in high school!) and call people liars or dragons in Latin, tell them to eat my pants and go to the crows in Greek, and calll them owls in Greek :laughing: And some other, ruder Shakespeare or Greek remarks too.

yeah... when i visit abroad (doesn't happen a lot, sadly) I can say funny things about people, and when I'm in Israel I talk talk about ma friends in english, cuz they don't speak it very good (my friends from my old school, mostly, now I'm in a geek school, so most people have great english). and I always like learning new ways to make fun of people (dang, I forgot how to say "go to the crows!") I recently learned "Pentakaka" which means somthing like criminal, and that "stands in front of statues" has a really bad meaning in latin....
speaking of which, Athena, I was having a discussion with an Italian girl on DA, and we got to talking about wether or not it is easy to learn latin and greek... Latin has very simple grammar, right? I didn't mistake the poor girl.... *tell me I didn't*

I'm learning Italian currently, and, evilopal, Italian is quite different from the original Latin. But as long as she was speaking English, you should have been fine. :)

I do really wish I knew Korean. It would make my life a good bit simpler. :(
