If you can speak another language, what one?

If you want to learn another one, which one (s) would you like to learn most?

I can speak a TINY bit of spanish and I would absolutely love to be fluent!

I can't speak any language except what I speak now and I don't want to really.

funny you should ask this, Trina. Just yesterday I bought a French daily desk calendar and found a French tutorial website. It sounds so cool I gotta learn it!

I had 4 years of high school and 1 year of college Spanish, but I'm still not fluent!!

I had 3 years of Spanish in H.S. and I always love the language....and my community has a LOT of hispanics so it'd be handy to have!

I can understand and speak a bit of spanish, my dad is fluent, but we weren't allowed to speak it at home since my sister had learning disabilities and the always told my parents it would confuse her (what a crock), but I really really wish I could speak MANY languages!

oh I know some curse words in sicilian, does that count?

I took Spanish for several years (2 in middle school; 3 in HS; and 2 semesters in college)... I am far from fluent though. I can communicate with patients at work fairly well, as long as we stick to topics that are directly related to what I do. ("Open your mouth," "Stick out your tongue," "Swallow your saliva/food/drink." Fun stuff like that. ) I've had lots of families (of patients) help me learn new vocab and phrases, which is awesome.

I also took 2 semesters of American Sign Language in college, which was really cool. But again, I am far from fluent, since I haven't used it at all since college.

I would absolutely love to be fluent in Spanish.

Took a year of spanish and a few years of French. I know a little French and even less spanish. Don't know if I will ever become fluent in either.

MIL is german and they sometimes break out in german (I have picked up a few words) but I usually sit there and look like I am enjoying myself anyways! LOL

I took 3 years of German in high school, but unfortunately I've lost a lot of it since then. I would love to take German classes again.

We have friends who are Chinese, and they have taught of several words (however useful the really are, I dunno). I think it would be fun to speak Chinese more fluently, but their language is quite confusing to me!
