I was just wondering if anyone is taking a foreign language or not. What language are you learning if you are taking one, and if you aren't , which one do you want to take? Oh, and by the way, French is the best. Razz

What do you mean? In school? I had German in school, I wanted French, but there was not enough students who wanted it and the teacher did not want to teach a class with to few students, so I had to stick with German. BORING! ITS A BORING LANGUAGE. And if anyone even try to say that German and Norwegian are almost the same (many do), Im going to..to..to...I dont know...but German is not a pretty language at all.

French is a very lovely language.

You know what Storm? I too want to learn Greek or Latin, but they dont have such languages here.

I can speak Polish, English and Norwegian. Polish is a very pretty language. I think so.

I once had a person in school who knew and spoke polish at home. I also know a freind who is learning Norweigan. And yes, French is a very nice language. Very Happy MANY MANY Many many people say tuat greek is VERY VERY Very very hard to learn because it's a different alphabet, and because you have a lot of suffixes to memorise, and... It's much similar to english, saying that 50,000 words in the english language are derived frim greek. I'm trying to learn greek by myself (and I like it!) Razz

At my school the languages we could take are Arabic or Persian. I want to take Persian but my mom is forcing me to take Arabic. 2 words: NOT FUN. I also want to take Greek so I am attempting to memorize the alphabets... French sounds pretty cool.

We have German, French, and Spanish. I, regretfully, am taking Spanish but I really wish I could learn Arabic just because I think it would be fun to learn Razz I know some Italian because I had to learn it for a Spanish project (we were comparing how similar the languages are Rolling Eyes ) and I know how to write (simple things) in Egyptian Hieroglyphs (I had to learn the language for a school project Razz )

Last year when I was learning about Egypt we got to write some stuff in hieroglyphics. It's pretty fun. Arabic is kinda hard. Its complicated and 1 little sign could change the meaning of the word... I want to learn Greek but I don't know where to find what the word is in Greek and I don't exactly trust google translate b/c once I got my Arabic hw off google translate and my teacher said it was all wrong....

Google Translate, translates the words right but the grammar is horrible. >_<

Egyptian Hieroglyphs are so cool! It's confusing how they are read though. So many different ways to read and write them.

If I had to learn a pre-Roman empire language, I would learn Babylonian Cuneiform, but nobody really knows it's grammar... or vocabulary, for that matter Razz Heiroglyphics don't have vowels, so two different words can have the same writing.

Better to learn some languages that you will have the use for. I dont think many have need to know Heiroglyphics. But I have to admit, it sounds interesting to know about that too! Razz

Haha yeah, and Egyptians didn't feel the need to use vowels so there's SO many ways to translate names and stuff Razz
