How many languages do you know besides English? Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Huh? Why do you wanna know...?

Hehehe... ok ok... er... besides English, I understand Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien/Taiwanese, Teochew - fluent enough for Will translation or preparation of notarial papers and such... Read very basic French - enough to figure out simple legal documents before sending them or court translation... and understand just enough Japanese to enjoy Anime / Jap Cartoons...

I know French and German (if I review) because I studied them a while ago. I almost studied Spanish. I attempted to learn Japanese but it was too hard for me.

I spent 3.5 years in Europe and, as a result, my French (Parisian, not Canadian) is pretty damn good*. Polish was better than conversational (ale juz jest bardzo slabo); and mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut.

I'm told that my English is luculent and far from contemnible.


* Good enough to know the difference between "damn good" and "fluent". Lots of people like to throw around that word but usually sound like they're reading from textbooks.

I know a smattering of Spanish(enough to meet, greet, get drunk, get laid), same w/ French(almost all the same as Spanish), a couple of Italian insults, a phrase or two in Japanese and Chinese. I know what my real name means in 4 different languages. The one I do the best w/ at times though is dead, that's Latin.

^^^ Thats because they are all "romance" languages based on Latin. So if you know one fluently, it can be easier to pick up the rest.

My question is: how many languages do you need besides English?? If some person want to speak to me ... they better do it in English ... otherwise, don't even think about it. I love it when dumb Asians talk to me in their native language asking for assistance ...
