I should be studying, but I prefer procrastinating.

Anyway, has the Pit learned many languages? If so, how many and to what standard?

I myself have learned Irish to an OK level and French to an OK but better than Irish level. I think that's more down to the better teaching of French in schools though.

And yourself?

I'm fluent in German, Spanish, Japanese, and Russian.

I've found all of them useful, despite living in a country that is stubborn towards learning languages -coughAmericacough-

I lived in Japan for a year so I have no problem speaking fluent Japanese... But do you think I can remember a damn thing from 9 years of French class? nope.
Quote by Wikipedia.org
These nouns are often used with a form of "to be" rather than "to have," e.g., "he is pwnage" rather than "he has pwnage". Either is a more emphatic way of expressing the simpler "he pwns,"

I'm an American living in Germany and German is pretty tough. Just for the word "the" they have several different words that can be used. But I read a lot in German as well and that helps.

I'm fluent in English & Portuguese. I know enough Spanish to be able to understand almost everything but when I speak it I'm really slow.

I want to learn French though.

I have a family member who moved to Finland when I was young so I've spent my whole life informally (and admittedly halfassedly) learning Finnish.

I also did French at school and learnt German at university. I'm making an effort to improve my Finnish now and am considering learning a second (or third, if you're counting English) Germanic language like Norwegian or Swedish.

I'm fluent in English and Sarcasm, I took 4 years of Spanish, but I'm no good at it.

Welcome to most languages.

Finnish is god damn difficult. (or at least it used to be) "Laatikkoon, Laatikolle, Laatikossa, Laatikolla, Laatikkoa" Being a swedish speaking finn, I'm happy I'm now fluent in Finnish. Swedish grammar was also hell.

Interestingly (in my opinion) Russian has no word for "the".

Being a shitey Dane, I speak the glorious "Language" of Denmark, Danish. English too. I am studying German in school. I understand polish because my mother spoke it all the time when I was smaller, but I can't communicate in anyway when it comes to that.

Yes it does. It's a suffix.

Russian has no articles whatsoever.

Does anyone know if sign language is universal, or does it differ from language to language. If it's universal we could just learn sign language and be done with it.

We should all just have to learn the same language, but keep our native tongue aswell.

It isn't universal.

I'd love to be able to speak another language fluently. I really want to be able to speak German, French, Chinese and Russian... that would be awesome.

I think people should learn as many languages as they can.Besides being like steroids for the brain,it helps you express yourself in different ways from your mother tongue and you get to learn more things about it.

EDIT:Spelling.

I'm fluent in English and Arabic.

Tryna learn spanish now, and failing miserably

Which one is your native language? And how hard was it to learn the other one with the different alphabet and everything?

Or if you grew up speaking both then no need to answer.

My native language was Arabic, but I'm actually better at speaking and writing English.

I kind of grew up speaking both but first words I spoke were probably Arabic.

English was pretty easy to learn because I was a toddler when I learned it
Arabic was way harder, and still is...
