    How many languages do you know?


    I am wondering how many languages they know the person in the forum.For example ,I want learning spanish but which always is being sketchy because I never take an opportunity for in full learning...or it maybe sloth...

    or you ? same idea ?

    the country that one language to have a talk is always went? or, the job is memorizing the vocabulary?

    but I know the hardest languages is turkish,chinese,russian

    Human languages?? Six for me, only because of how and where I grew up at. By the way, most kids in my neighborhood were tri-lingual and quite a few were quadri-lingual.

    I can fluently speak one, English (no surprise really there huh!).

    But, I have studied German and Spanish online and self-study books (not in any great detail unfortunately though) so can speak little bits of each. Can probably order a beer in about 10 different languages though!

    Always thought about getting the Rosetta Stone packages to help learn the languages though - that could be my plan for next year.

    2.) It is wrong to be French
    3.) It is O.K. to put all bad people in a giant meat grinder
    4.) Lawyers, see rule 3
    5.) It is O.K. to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes
    6.) Everyone should car pool but me
    7.) Bring back the word 'stewardesses'
    8.) Synchronized swimming is not a sport
    9.) Mud wrestling is a sport

    I did very poorly at high school French. I got Rosetta Stone for Korean (my son is half) but by the third lesson it wasn't being quite so lenient in my pronunciation as it had the first two segments and I didn't get much farther. I did quite well at reading Greek when I had to translate english maps to greek road signs, but that's about as far as my skills apparently go. I can order in Spanish at a Taqueria though ...

    Hmmm I took 1 yr of French, 1 yr of Spanish, and 2 yrs of German in HS....I remember a few words from each. So the only language I speak/read/write is my native born English (Amerian style English).

    I know turkish and english and a little russian the turkish realy is one of languages that hardest to learn...

    for example:

    for "your book" word , as noun and verb,those always are different in turkish...


    english ----- turkish

    you ----- sen

    you ----- siz

    your ------ sen -in

    your ---- siz -in


    he (man) ----- o (erkek)

    she (woman) ------ o (bayan)


    his ----- o - nun

    her ------ o - nun


    the affixes always are different in turkish...people learning to turkish sweats for the turkish affixes exactly....

    the only subject word does not take the affix in turkish, this is really being difficult...

    for examle :

    your book sen - in book


    but it is not so

    like this :

    ------your book sen - in book - in ------

    as turkish


    your book ----- sen - in kitab --- ın


    kitap means book in turkish...


    that is to say ; adverbs except subject takes affixes as well


    -----------------------


    in conclusion :

    there are very hard languages..

    My mother-tongue is Turkish. I wouldn't say it is hard, since I learned it when I was 2! Lol, seriously, it has a few rules that follow everywhere. Not really similar to English, that might be why it is hard for people learning Turkish as a second language.

    Other than that, I believe my English skills are well above the average. I can fluently speak, understand and write in German too. I also know a tiny bit of French, which I learned at the high school, but didn't really pay much attention.

    Man, I was suckered by the title and was starting to count up the languages, starting from Fortran II, F-iV, Watfor, ratfor, flecs., Algol, Snobol, Cobol, ..... and then I realized you meant human speaking languages.

    Like most Americans, I speak only US-English. Long ago, as an undergraduate I took enough French to think in French and not have to consciously translate in my head. I lost that ability about a month after I graduated.
