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. :(

I already know German, I have to learn french, and I want to learn Spanish
I sat down and tried to write a story.

"Ian MacArthur is a wonderful sweet fellow who wears glasses and peers out of them with delight."

That was the first sentence. The problem was that I just couldn't think of the next one. After cleaning my room three times, I decided to leave Ian alone for a while because I was starting to get mad at him.

I know German too ( most of our friends feel left out when we speak German at school.) Usually we only speak German when it is about AF though.

I knew Greek for a short time, I know a tiny bit of Italian and Hungarian. I know sign language but I don't know if that counts...
Awesome quotes:

"Fear is not evil, it tells you what your weakness is. Once you know your weakness you can become stronger as well as kinder." -Gildarts Clive, from the anime Fairy Tail.

"Awww," Minho said, "That's almost as sweet as that time she slammed the end of a spear into your shuck face." -Minho, from Death Cure.

Will: "But I thought..."
Gilan: "Never say that in front of Halt. He'll simply reply, 'You're an apprentice. You're not ready to think,' or 'If you thought about it, you wouldn't ask'." -The Ranger's Apprentice Book 1, The Ruins of Gorlan.

Sign language is so cool! I don't see why it wouldn't count. Do you know ASL, or one of the others?
