What foreign language you want to learn/know and why?
« on: May 22, 2016, 08:27:39 am »
I really wanna learn Spanish and Japanese. Spanish because I love some listening to some Spanish rap now and then and Japanese because I love anime and it would be cool to watch them and not worrying about subs. Besides Greek, which is my mother language I also speak English (go figure!).

So what language you guys know or wanna learn?

I want to learn German because I'm approximately 25% German (bloodline-wise), if not a little more. I've always wanted to travel there, and for some reason the language has just always appealed to me. I don't think it's quite as useful as learning Spanish or French, but I feel like it would make me feel more connected to my German roots. The only issue I could see with learning is that I may lose information over time, due to a lack of usefulness in daily life. If I do end up learning it, though, I'll try my best to retain all the information in my head and be able to use it if I ever travel to Deutschland.

I want to learn all the languages! Mainly German and Norwegian because those are places I want to visit when I'm older. I'm also around 75% German so it probably would come in handy

German, for education. I'm thinking to go there one day.
Chinese, Global trading language. Most trader speak chinese to each othere.
Japanese, tech education. Other reason is to watch anime without subtitle or already dubbed.
French, because it sounds romantic somehow.

I wanna learn German cause I think it'd be cool and I quite like German movies so it'd be great to watch them without the subtitles.

I know French (or at least I like to thin I do after 8 years of French Immersion in school). I would love to learn a whole bunch of languages but I think my top favourite to learn would be Icelandic because I love, love, love the Icelandic settlers/Norsemen/Vikings.

      How is German leading this poll? I've learned very little German in my time, but my school doesn't even teach it so I'm not one to judge. I personally know French and English. I know French very well obviously, but my English I feel is rather rustic to some degree. English gets rather complicated when we look at specific rules of English such as participles and proper sentence structure. Speaking of which, did you know "good" is actually an adverb? One thing that is a very good feature of English is its similarity to French because of the Norman invasion of the British Isles. French actually accounts for about a quarter of English vocabulary with Latin, which French comes from, making up another quarter of the language. If you notice in French, when we say, "How are you?", it's, "Comment allez-vous?". We can actually see similarities to English in this sentence. "Comment" is all ready an English word which is basically the infinitive "to say" (which is "dire" in French) and "vous", which is "you", looks a whole lot like the English word "you", but the "V" has been replaced with "Y" and the "S" was dropped entirely.

Actually I think that English has also a lot of similarities with German too. But yeah the similarities with French are major. There are not many similarities with the language I speak. The grammar is kinda similar but other than that no. To be honest there are a lot Greek words that exist in English. Even the word anthropomorphic has 100% Greek roots.

I love how German and Russian sound and I find them in games a lot. So it would be so cool to talk to them!

About two years ago, I started learning Spanish, but I'm having a difficult time with it. This upcoming autumn, I'm probably going to switch to French so my father can give me some help. However, I would absolutely love to learn Icelandic; it's without a doubt my first choice, but there are so few places that teach it. I desperately want to visit Iceland some day, so knowing the language might be a bit handy.

I really want to learn French and Spanish. Mostly French. I only know a tiny bit of each. But not enough to speak them or anything. Hopefully one day! ouo The thought of being able to speak two languages interests me.
