    What other language would you like to speak?

    Hello world!!!

    If you had the (magical) chance to learn another language instantly, what would be?

    I would like to know Japanese because I watch a lot of anime and it would be real cool to watch the shows without reading the subtitles.

    Or maybe French. I always saw French as a interesting language, as it is one of the Romantic Languages.

    But language would you learn instantly? Please answer below.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I would love to learn ancient Greek! I took Latin for 4 years, and I loved being able to translate ancient poetry. Some poets were surprisingly “relatable”, for lack of a better word. For example, a lot of Catullus’s work (that I read, anyway) had to do with a girl he could only admire from far away, or was playfully making fun of his friends or other people he knew. Not exactly what comes to mind when you think of poetry that is centuries old, but that’s why I love it! Also, although the structure of the language is INCREDIBLY annoying at times (order of words means nothing, neither do commas at times), it is so rewarding to finally puzzle a tough sentence together.

    Anyway, by learning ancient Greek, I would hope to continue translating poems similar to the ones I read in Latin!

    Hi Kris,

    I took two American Sign Language classes and I loved it. If I were to become fluent in any language instantly, it would be ASL or French. French is so uhhhhh. I love it.

    Hello Kris!

    I am currently learning Spanish, and I really want to get to the point where I can speak it fluently. I live in California, so Spanish would be very useful to know. I also hope to study abroad in Spain, so it would be amazing to get to the point where I can easily speak with those around me.

    Another language I would like to learn is Russian. To me, the language seems very interesting and fun to learn. it would also be amazing to get to know another alphabet. Learning Russian would also make it much easier for me to learn other slavic languages, which I may want to do some day.

    I want to learn many languages throughout my life. The only problem have is that I will have very little time. Hopefully I will be able to make the time though.

    Have a great night!


    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I guess I would like to learn spanish and maybe french. I would like to visit these places for vacation, so I know it would be an advantage to speak the native tongue. I recently took a trip to Dominican Republic which was amazing, but I'm sure I could have had more fun if I spoke some of the language. There were so many events mainly because it was a resort , and I'm sure I could have joined in more of them had I known. Though there were quite a few on the island who spoke english, I know if I spoke the lanuage I would be able to ecplore the island more.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    Hi KrisTerry,
    I'd like to learn to speak Russian, since it's my wife's first language. Through her, I've discovered that there's a sizable Russian language community in the area and in the long run, it would also come in handy for my new career (healthcare). Of course, she wants to learn to speak Spanish, given that we're close to the Mexican border. But still...Russian. So we can better communicate and understand each other. Even after 9 years, while she's fluent in English, there are nuances that are difficult to catch and I think it would be a great gesture of love, you know?


    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I would speak Aramaic. Its a dead language but it looks so beautiful. The way the letters look and the way its spoken is WOW. I really do wish I could speak it. Maybe I knew it in another life just seem to never remember it.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?


    I know this might be boring, but I would like to become fluent in Spanish. I took 3 years of Spanish in school but I am hardly fluent. It just seems like such a relevent language to know.

    My boyfriends mom is from Argentina and they speak Spanish. I also always hear people in the stands of my boyfriends soccer games who are speaking Spanish and I would love to know what they are saying. Also, I would like to go to Argentina one day to meet his family and being able to speak Spanish more fluently would be a big help!

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I would love to learn Italinan or German if I could! I've always loved the way Italians talked for some reason and always thought it sounded fancy haha. German is another cool language I would love to learn and have always been interested in it.
    Have a great day!

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    Can I learn all of them? If so, I would like to learn them all!!!

    I have took courses in Hawaiian and French. I took about 5 or 6 years of Hawaiian and got to the point of being able to speak quite fluently. I took 2 years of French and could speak it moderately well. I since have forgotten most of both languages. Although while I could still remember both, I would often get them mixed up. This being the case, I would assume that knowing many languages fluently could possibly be very confusing! I can just imagine myself mixing them up.

    If I can only choose one to learn, I would like to learn Portuguese. I have always wanted to learn this language.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I know this gonna sound lame but i would want to learn spanish instantly if i could!
    I grew up speaking spanish until i went to kindergarden. I had to learn english quick because the school i went to had no spanish speaking program. But i want to learn spanish because i could speak to more of my family and understand them more as a person and their personality. Also for fun i could sound so cool! I would speak spanish out of no where just for the fun of it. I like the spanish from americas though because it has swag to it!

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I want to be able to understand Korean as I would like to visit the country some day and maybe meet up with my favorite Korean idols. I've always been inclined towards the country Korea so it'll be interesting to know Korean and understand all the little details in dramas and clips that I miss while watching because I'd be busy trying to catch the subtitles. Basically I just want to know Korean for the sake of understand my Kpop idols is all. It's all for a good cause I think.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    Hi everyone
    I would love to speack Arabic simply because I love the sound of it and the way it rhymes in my ears makes me want to know what they are talking about. The opposite way that they write and read it is super cool to me. Have a great day.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?


    If I could learn one language I would learn Japanese! I think Japanese is one of the coolest sounding language's. it just sounds so much different than any other. I'm not that into Japanese culture, but I love the way their language sounds. I also like the writing, I think its incredibly unique.

    I like the sound of French too, but it confuses me. I took French for one year in high school and just couldn't grasp it. Spanish was good, and I would love too learn more of it.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I would love to speak Spanish, Swahili and Korean.

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    I'm with you on the Japanese language.
    I don't thin I'll ever need to speak another language but if I had to pick I'd choose Spanish because I come in contact more with Spanish speaking people than anyone else!

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    Hey World!

    First I'm going to start off by saying.. SPANISH.

    For years I been trying to understand the Spanish language and it's just So challegening to me.

    I wouldn't be this anxious to learn Spanish if I didn't have a boyfriend whose family speaks Spanish and hardly any English at all.

    And to make the situation even better, my dad and his side of the family is Mexican, while my mom and her side is African American. So half of my own family speaks Spanish and I can't understand them.

    So yup. That's me . Still learning though!

    Btw, the idea of learning Japanese and watching anime is Awesome!

    Re: What other language would you like to speak?

    It is unusual but I would want to learn Russian or Polish. When I hear people speak either language it sounds so soothing to me, especially Polish. They are not usually languages that someone would generally call soothing. But something about it catches my ear. I wonder what it is?
