[Shuu Survey] English?

Post by Julia » Sat Dec 08, 2012 5:56 pm

A quick and simple one this time. Let's see what percentage of users are or aren't English natives.

Discuss the languages you know, used to know, or want to know.

English is my first language, and I've studied a little bit of German and taken two years of Latin (not that I remember most of it :P). I'd love to be able to speak a lot of other languages, but if I had to choose just one it would probably be German. It is a really beautiful language.

English is my first language. I did study French back in high school for 4 years and I know a little Swedish.

My first language is English, though it sometimes it doesn't seem like it :P I took Spanish in high school, but I sucked at it and now I'm trying to learn Japanese. I even got a Japanese for Dummies book :D

Dutch is my first language. But my father had a penpal from America and she vistited us ever since I was 4 so I got English at a very early age.
And having studied in IT, does help too :3

My first language is Polish, but I learn English since... well, I had some extra-curricular lessons in nursery school, but since fourth class of elementary school (even after all those years, I'm still not good, haha).
I know also some Latin and German (though I don't like it - no offence to Germans, but I just think this language sounds very harsh). I would like to know many languages, especially French, Russian and Japanese (okay, okay, I know how to read katakana, hiragana and very few kanji, but I want to know it better >.>)

My first language is English but I read Spanish very well (I had years of Spanish in high school but I'm not as good at speaking it) and I'm learning Japanese.

Not my first language, but I'm working on it. I plan to take the proficiency exam two or three years from now.

I also wanted to learn German, Russian and Arab, but I found out that I suck when it comes to learning idioms by myself.

English is my first language. I took three years of Spanish in high school (but the only phrase I remember is, "lo siento, pero yo no puedo hablar en español").
I know a little Japanese, as well.
