Which language you like most?

#1 Unread post by PrettyOrchid » Fri Jun 04, 2010 1:17 am

Hi, I like French language a lot even I feel hard to learn and write the language with out mistakes. I heard French language is the oldest language in the world’s history. Is it true...?

I prefer any language I can understand and communicate in.
So far I like English, Spanish, Exact English Sign, American Sign, and I can understand slowly spoken French, Italian, Portugues, and a little bit of Dutch.

I learned flash, html, css, spanish 1, php and starting joomla in the last few months. I really need to focus on one and learn it well unfortunately I need to learn them all ok maybe not spanish but it sure would help in learning other languages if I did.

Japanese, and it is surprising easy to grasp the basics, but takes a life time to master.
Always ask why.

Russian, because it is rich and beautiful, and mournful, and idiosyncratic, and odd and you can sink your teeth into it (as well as anyone standing nearby while you are speaking it.)

+1 for you sir I'd learn it just so I can go to a country that loves Vodka as much as I do. Of course I want to learn Japanese just so I can ask direction to a vending machine that sells Beer in Tokyo :lol:

C'mon Pete. Don't be shy. Spill the beans! :D

And in the UK as well. Years ago I found a petrol station with a massive vending machine standing in the courtyard. Put your money in and it would deliver you a tin of live worms. Even more puzzling, the garage was in North Herts. North Herts is chalk downland, with not a river in sight.

Local cuisine? :shock: :?

From my point of view, among all languages the most beautiful is Spanish, English and French. I speak English, and I'm learning Spanish as well.

Wow! Chu vi parolas esperanto?

I didn't think anyone did any more. I learnt it as a kid. I don't know whether it was stupid, but it was bloody boring. It seems to have ended up being a bridge language used by the Chinese as a stepping stone to teaching English, since it is based on a simplified and regularised European-style grammar. (Not universal then.)

Loved the vending machines, by the way!
