yeah i think so. One language is enough and much better i think, so we can understand each other more without worrying that what we say might have a different meaning with them and afraid that someone might get offended by the words we are using.

hi friend thanks a lot for ur valuable response. For wat u asked, in india atleast in the rural and sub urban parts,not many even know to english,gorget fluent speaking. In the metros though, most can speak good enough english, the accent is however different.Our way of pronouncing some words isnt exactly same as English or Americans does...n its understandable i guess. take care

Hello Frozen, Yes, I travel but not much international one. I have a strong wish to learn different languages around the world. I just love it. Beside that for my job and interest i need to contact different people around the world. When u can say something in ur contact's or friend's language, it will be much easier for youto interact with him/her.

I feel so langauge deprived. lol I only speak one language fluently and that is of course. English. But I can also speak a tiny bit of Spanish and French. Not enough for a real convo but I can pick up words from these languages some times. My son Mikey has taken 6 years of Japanese so I am sure he speaks it fluently by now.

Hello there, i know 4 types of language which consist of English, Malay(national language), Chinese and just a little bit of Tamil. I think its good to know a few languages besides your mother tongue,especially if you live in a multi-racial country.

i can speak two languages, one is my native language --Chinese. and the other is my major--English. chinese is the most difficult language, and it is more magical and beautiful.for me. english is the widest language. and it is the common language in the world. if you can speak english, then you can chat with all of peopel in the world.
