It would have to be Chinese and Spanish.

Besides there are a few similar languages to Spanish. Italian, Portugese, and French to name a few have similar words and grammar. I have been told once you are fluent in one, you can pick the others up quite rapidly.


waaaait! English isnt number one??? do the americans know this?!?!

I would absolutely love to learn Gaelic. Partly because I come from an Irish background, and partly because I'm absolutely intrigued and fascinated by the sound of it. It sounds beautiful and it's not something you hear often anymore. I'm also quite in love with the Italian language and would put that as my close second.
Any fellow Lushers feel like giving me a lesson?


Gaelic is one ive never considered. Would be cool though. Italian would be nice, i can only say two things in Italian though.

I would love to give you a lesson but i only speak two languages, English and bad English.

Its not who i am, but what i do that defines me.

I believe you mean't to say: for (e)very mistake you going to make.

Oh wow, this is extremely embarrassing. I need to start rereading what I write before I hit send.
I swear the "very" was just a typo, though. And it still is "you're".
Also, there is an unnecessary apostrophe in your post - can you spot it? :p


hehe you found it after all! Lol the you was an accident, iPhone ftl, but the apostrophe I meant.
Shhh

i would love to learn spanish. its got some close ties to french, so i think i would pick it up pretty easily, too. then i would be able to talk to my friend in his language, and read what he says without having to translate it.
phrases that i would like to know are i love you, hug me tighter, kiss me fool, and holy crap is that a UFO! :p

English is my first language, am fluent in Italian and speak some French so the natural progression for me would be Spanish...so far the only phrase I know is..."estar contigo me gusta mas que nada"...but I think that one might get me into some trouble laughing8

Back in high school our Spanish teacher was from Jersey with a crazy strong accent - that was fun. Needless to say I'm re-learning it to teach it to mini me.


Really, sex and laughter do go very well together, and I wondered - and I still do - which is more important.

Greek: moro mou, esi.

English: Literal: My baby, you.

Another context: My baby, it's you.

Depending on the previous context, esi (you) can take on many different meanings.

Lots of people wanting to learn Gaeilge which is quite encouraging! I'd love to learn Spanish or Italian I think! Fluent in Gaeilge/Gaelic/Irish though if anyone needs a hand! Hard when put on the spot to come up with a nice phrase but I think "is iomaí lá san uaigh agat" or "you have plenty of days in the grave/live life to the full" is quite a good one.

"Chas siad lena chéile" is another, "they were entwined together" or if you say someone left "ar shlí na fírinne" it means they have gone on "the way of truth"...basically they have passed away.

Spainish: I have many patients who only speak it. Id like to know more then what I learned from Dora explorer! I took 4 yrs of french so I can communicate with my french speaking patients(more then you might think), but wish I could do the same with the spainish ones.

Russian, German, French and Latin.

Axl - Take a look at our piercing menu.

Daria - I don't think that's how you spell "uvula."

Axl - That's not "uvula."

I'd like to learn, in order of preference, Russian, Japanese, Spanish and Italian. I know a few phrases in each language, but I'm actually struggling to think of any. I tried learning Gaelic from a friend, but gave it up because of it's lack of flexibility and aversion to vowels, it seems that if you don't have a word in Gaelic, you just use English, which rather defeats the purpose of having your own language.

I'd love to learn German, I know a fair bit from school but I would like to be fluent.

My fiancé is part German and lived out there for a while, so when he's with his friends I'm on the sidelines. And he talks in German with his family to keep secrets from me around Christmas but then they forget to switch back to English...

Finnish, two of my younger brothers speak it (my step mother is finnish), since they recently moved out there with my step mother and my father. I have intentions to visit them in the summer, however I have a small problem in that my step mother's family detest me....therefore I would also like to be able to speak it fluently to tell if they're bitching about me! confused1

I speak French and am currently learning German and Spanish at univeristy, which I love! To that list I'd like to add Italian and I wouldn't mind learning something completely different like Swahili or Russian, I love speaking to people in foreign languages, and I really can't wait to go on my year abroad in 2 years time! My children won't have a choice about learning languages! Mwa ha ha haaa! ;)

I would like to learn Italian and Russian. I speak Swahili and can get by with Gujarati, Africaans, French and a little German.... and on that note I shall say Bonne Nuit, Lekker slaap, kulala vizuri.
