What languages are you proficient with or want to learn, and think is beautiful?

58 posts in this topic

I'm a native English speak and can speak enough German to do all the day to day things such as ordering different types of  beer in a bar...and buying beer in a supermarket...and asking where the nearest pub is...hmmmm I think the German I know is rather narrow now that I think about it :P

 

I wish I could speak and read every language; communicating with other human beings from other cultures adds to the great tapestry of life. Oh and there's an Italian philosopher, Giovanni Gentile, that I can't find any decent English translations of his main work (have the one available on amazon but the translation and the formatting of the book make it an impossible read) so I wish I could read Italian to a level that I could understand the nuances of philosophical language.

I think Japanese is a beautiful language to learn and I've wanted to learn for a long time but rosetta stone is so friggin' expensive. I find almost every aspect of the japanese calture to be beautiful and would love to visit the land someday.

i'm currently learning japanese and enjoying it immensily since the language is very prominent in my life. I found it to be a very methodical and fun language. Although all the homonyms are confusing. Once i become fleunt in Japanese I would like to learn Mandarin and Russian. Love how i pick 3 launguages with 3 completely different alphabets. 

When listening to music, i find russian very soothing and beautiful. Same for Japanese. German is awesome for metal and industrial music.

Languages are so damn awesome, but I suck so damn much...

 

In any case, I know Bulgarian ( native language ), English ( duh ), and Spanish ( to a good enough degree - not incredibly fluent though, still ). I kinda tried to study Japanese on my own, it worked out kinda well, but school forces me to not study it( that, and gaming... someone stop me so I can actually do something useful! )

 

As for languages I'd want to learn... ugh, yeah, I'm interested in lots of languages. I'd take German and Russian in my school if I could. I just hate being left out of conversations because I don't understand what  people are saying. Every person and language on this planet is cool in some way, and I just feel like every language is worth it.

I'm kinda surprised to see how many people want to learn French. Not saying that it's impossible to learn, but still. Really difficult for someone who's native language isn't French.

Aaah anyway. I've started learning English four years ago, a bit late if you compare to others but I was lazy and didn't like it at first. But, because I wanted to play Persona 3 so bad because of the way it looked, I bought the game, sat down and learned bits by bits, alone. And without actual knowledge of the language except 'Sorry, I don't speak English very well.'. Y'can guess I wasn't very good at first.

Still think I have some progress to make, mostly because I make pauses while I talk, to think, be it in my language or English. So yeah, it can be sometime difficult to understand me, or hear me at all. Otherwise, I think I'm good, I mean, I think in English, I talk in English. Most of the time, I don't know what's the word I'm searching for in my own language, so... yeah.

But anyway: I'd like to speak German. Österreïch, Österreich, dear country of my ancestors ~
