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'd like to be fluent in German, but I only know basic German from my high school classes.

    I spoke a shit ton of languages as a kid, now it's English and partial Spanish. I was going to learn cantonese or mandarin I forgot which.

    I probably still will but I need to have time to do it and i'm just really busy right now. I also want to learn Farsi.

    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.

    I've been wanting to learn Mandarin for a long time, but I found out my university offers Mongolian.

    And, well... I just went with the more awesome decision.
