I'm so with you! I'm trying out some podcasts to help me retain what I learned in school and hopefully build.

German, English, Spanish, and a little French. I can speak a few sentences in Dutch, Danish, and Arabic. I know that doesn't count, though ;)

I speak a little German, enough to get by if I had to, and English. I would love to be truly bilingual.

Yes! And press three if someone who is bilingual is more likely to get a job than you.

I don't get why people are proud of speaking one language. They may as well say, "I'm proud of being less educated than others." Speaking multiple languages is a gift. It allows you to befriend people and learn concepts that monolingual people will never have the opportunity to know or understand.

A las personas que dicen que son fluidos en "Español"... No existe la palabra español con E mayúscula sino que al principio de una frase o en un nombre, digamos, de una institución u organización.

I'm not fluent in Spanish, but I'm good enough to easily carry on a conversation with my boyfriend and his family in Spanish. They're from mexico and say my Spanish is pretty good. :)

ASL is most popular than ESL. Do not use ESL. Deaf people are hating ESL.

Besides, if 'American' existed, it would be an indigenous language bc the rest are really European. Think about it. You're referring to 'English' as 'American.' A little geography lesson: England is in Europe. I'd be happy to call it 'King George-ese' though if it makes you more comfortable.

Also, there are many American languages because America consists of 2 continents. Spanish, English, Portuguese and French are widely spoken throughout both.

I speak 5 languages: Spanish, English , Italian, Portuguese, Latin and French. Speaking those languages have helped me professionally, personally and traveling. Just came from Italy and went that far as Palermo, Sicily island.

Wi the globalized economy though, having a second language is incredibly helpful. We are lucky to have English as our native language but, like you said about Spanish, a second language definitely serves people well

The first language you learn after your native tongue is the hardest. After that it gets easier to learn other languages because you see similarities and your mind learns and thinks differently. It's cool!:)

Learned French and Latin in high school. Picked up some Spanish from working in a kitchen in college. Took a couple semesters of Ancient Greek in college. Currently teaching myself Finnish.
