I travel to Europe some times, France , Germany, Netherland. It would really be more enjoyable if I speak the languages of the countries there. I like to learn German. Do you speak any of the European languages ? Do you speak German ?

That's very good. You must have travelled to Germany too. It is really more pleasant if one can speak the language of the place.

Hi Teka. How are you ? Very nice to see you. Yes, yes, I know Portugese is the language spoken in Brazil. I still have not been to Brazil yet. I have been to Venezuela once, and that's the closest to Brazil I have been to. There in Venezuela, they speak Spanish, right ?

That's excellent. You are comfortable with many European languages. I have not been to Romania yet. I certainly do look forward to the opportunity to visit in the near future.

Hello, yes I do speak other languages. No, I don't speak German. Sorry. I do know a few phrases in German, but I wouldn't say I speak it at all. 1) English 2) Spanish 3) Italian With Italian I can only say basic things like "My name is" "I am...years old". "how are you?" "where is...?", "it's hot outside", and such things. With Spanish I can speak it pretty well. I can do almost all the things I can in English. Yes, I have been to Spain and Portugal. I love traveling and I hope to go back to Europe soon. I hope to go to Italia (Italy) and France soon. Pablo

Of course I am speaking german, as I am originally from germany. Besides I speak english as you can see, more or less good spanish. Ok, it is enough to communicate. In school I also learned some french. But I have forgotten most of it. Just would be enough to be able to buy some food and something to drink.

That's very good. So, you are bi-lingual ! Parlez vous francais ? That's all I can say in French. Even the spelling was not correct , right ?

No, I only speak the English language only. It would be nice and creative to try something different.
