I very well speak in my native language Lithuanian. I think I not bad speak and English - one of the most valuable languages in the world. And I can speak a little in Russian, but I understand it quite well only speaking Russian is hard for me.

Yes I am from Lithuania. In school we have to learn 2 foreign languages, one of them is English and the other from 5th to 10th form is arbitary and in 11th and 12th form is optional. Most students choose Russian as their second foreign language and others choose French or German languages. I studied English at school 9 years and Russian 6 years. Now I am school leaver and after few days there will be English exam for me.

I really want some Chinese Traditional Han Fu and I lie the Mongolian dress too, I think they are beautiful. I am trying to learn Chinese on my own at home but I am terrible at remembering how to write..I keep having to write the same word over and over to remember lol. I love Mandarin it is such a rich and romantic language. My Hubby is translating my poetry into Chinese..

I wanted to take chinese classes in college, but my schedule doesn't allow me. I wish I know chinese though since my grandpa is chinese. I was wondering since you are chinese, can you tell me how to write my first name in chinese character? please. My name mean cherry blossom, a yellow flower that usually got display during chinese new year. ^_^ I think it's Mei. But I am not so sure. How do you write it in chinese character?

It's not the mum. I did a little research and I think it's called the yellow apricot blossom. The vietnamese name is Mai. That translate to chinese is Mei ?. In china the Mei flower is white. And now I am confuse. ^_^ So many flowers. Why didn't my parents name me Wu Kong? ^_^

I can read, write and speak 4 languages; Urdu, English, Punjabi and French. Urdu is my mother tongue and I am quite well at it. English is second langauge and I am fairly well in it too. Punjabi is local language of the country I actually belong to and French is my study language. I am not very fluent in french but at least good at it. I can also understand to some extent persian and arabic but I can't speak or write these languages. I know very few words of chinese that I learnt from my chinese friends:-)
