@exit, well I was the same with Italian (but probably only because it was my grandma trying to teach me when I was like 6 o_O - wasn't going to happen).. But if you like Russian, you should try it!!

Just teach yourself some phrases and see if your any good or if you enjoy it XD

There is a girl in my Japanese class that has been teaching herself Russian for years now, apparently she is going to head the Australian-Russian relations when she finishes school (or at least that is what she wants to do)..
We all have a dark side...

Spoiler:
That awkward moment when someone says "hi" to you, and you reply with "I'm good"... -_-

That shite moment in an argument when you realise you are wrong...

That awesome moment when the teacher asks you a question, thinking you weren't being attentive. Then you answer it right, it's like "What now! WIN!!!"

That depressing moment when your mum scribbles on the award your school gave you in congratulations for all your hard work, just to get her stupid pen to work D':


But you love me XD

Cool! I also realized something else. The second you start middle school you learn another language: PROFANITY.

My inski language is a newfounded language by me.

You add 'inski' at the end of every second word. For some words you can cut off 'in', depending on how the word sounds. If the word's second last letter is I then you cut off 'in' anyway.

If you come across plurals, you say 'inskis' or 'skis'. e.i: "Look outski for Artyinkis awesome languageinski."
If it's a singular, don't worry about the S.

Yay, I´m learning French now! Also, my parents have bought an audiobook Italian course (because we´re going to Italy later this year), but it´s mostly my brother who´s using it, since I´m more inclined to focus on the French. I´ll give it a try once I´m somewhat fluent in French, I think.

Now that we´re in coded languages, I speak and write fluently robber´s language (I don´t know whether that´s what it´s called in English - it was invented by Astrid Lindgren). The point is to replace each consonant with itself, then an O, then itself again.
...SOSo evovenontotualolloly, you´dod bobe wowroritotinongog lolikoke tothohisos.

I don´t understand it spoken, though, unless you speak rather slowly. I don´t think anyone does, to be honest. ^_^

there is a song in hebrew that is in the B language. (you add b after every letter) and it actually won the Eurovision Song Contest back in the 70's.... I have a few friends who speak B fluently....

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??

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?
