Welsh - I am actually Welsh and we did have to learn it in school, but I can't really remember any of it :oops: :-P
Latin - I find Latin quite fascinating :)


Yes, both of these.

I'm honestly learning Spanish only because I have to. I live in California so, to get a job these days it's a extremely important to know Spanish. I'd rather be taken Latin or German classes.

I would like to learn French, Italian, or Japanese. I just finished taking three years of Spanish, and while I can read, write, and understand the language pretty well, I am not comfortable enough with speaking it. I just freeze up and can't speak the words or remember the words properly enough. I can only sometimes do it if I have rehearsed and know what I am going to say ahead of time. :-\

Awesome, since you have a handle on Spanish, it'll be easier for you to learn French and Italian.

Oh, thanks for that! I did know that Italian (and I think Portuguese?) are also close to the Spanish language, but I didn't realize that French was as well. :o Well, that makes me feel better. :wink:

Yep, they're Romance languages. Meaning they derive from Latin. Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Romanian are the most commonly spoken Romance languages, but there are some other minor ones.

I've recently become really interested in the Japanese language. I'm thinking of following classes. I've picked up some words from music, cartoons, and whatnot, but all I can say is I love Donkey Kong. (ドンキーコング 大好き) but that's all I need. xD Nah JK.

But seriously, I'd love to learn it once. :) Gonna take a long time, though...

I can't imagine learning a language with a completely different alphabet, like Chinese or Russian. It's like you have to learn both the language and the alphabet. For people with that kind of patience, good for you!

Well, basic? I can only really say 'I love Donkey Kong' and recognize a few words. xD But thanks, I hope so too!

I'm a native Chinese speaker, I'm trying to learn better English skills, and I'm learning German at school.

One language that I've always wanted to learn is Italian. I know how to say some words in Italian however I've always wanted to learn more of the language! :D x

I can speak English and also Cantonese as my family speaks it. However because I mainly use English, my Cantonese is pretty poor compared to them. My parents can also speak Mandarin too - which I'd love to learn as well. I'd also love to be able to read and write Chinese - but it'd be so difficult!

Besides wanting to be better with canto/mandarin, I am currently learning French and would love to be fluent in it too! I would also love to learn Korean or/and Japanese c:

If only I could learn that many languages...

Lately, I really want to actually *learn* Japanese. It's mainly because I've got lots of Japanese people communicating with me now, and they're actually striving to learn English— but I barely know any of their language! I think it'd be great to actually hold a conversation with one of them someday without having to go to Google Language Tools every few minutes. 8D A pipe dream...
