How many languages do you speak? Don't you think that is nice to learn them?

I thinki that is very important to learn other languages. For example, I was born in Brazil and I speak Spanish, English and Italian respectively. And now my children who had been born in the United States, speak Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese obviously. When they go to work, I believe they'll have a better chance to be sucessful. There are a lot of Language Institutes and Schools around the world and maybe there is one near our work or home. I luckily have an italian mother, Brazil is surrounded by Spanish speaking countries and I emigrated to USA very early, therefore, as you can see I have many sources from where I learned these four languages. Don't you think that is very important to learn them? Luigi

With the influx of Spanish speaking people to the United States, it's important for them to learn English. But when they first get here, it's important for them to have someone who can translate. I speak Spanish and American Sign Language fluently. I also know enough French to be dangerous and a handfull of words in German.
