Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So this is a thread about languages.

Which do you speak, which do you want to learn?

Will you use your language abilities to pick up hoes in different area codes? Or just as an excuse to really confuse someone you are cussing out?

I myself speak French, am proficient in Spanish, and am in my second semester of studying Mongolian.

    I can speak and read passable Polish - not very good at writing though... not at all.

    Would like to learn an additional language some day.

    I speak very little German. About enough to order a meal and to not make embarrassing sexual comments in the process. That second one's a lot harder than you'd think.

    I'll probably wind up getting a Masters in Applied Linguistics at some point, probably with an emphasis on TESOL. You can get pretty much anywhere with TESOL.

    I like languages. I make sure to pick up a couple phrases whenever I travel. It's a lot easier than pointing and grunting, and gives me something to do on the plane.

    My next class will probably be Biblical Greek, and I'm going to take some Hebrew at some point to go along with it, but I doubt I'll bother to really learn to speak either. Unless I decide I want to learn one of the modern counterparts, there isn't really any point.

    How dare you address that French truck in the familiar. You don't know it well enough for that.

    We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds'.
