Sadly I can only speak one language my native tongue English, I did try to learn French at school but I didn't get very far and only got a mediocre result in the exams and I didn't have a very good teacher, I did try to teach myself French but I just couldn't work on my own, I need a tutor to be able to learn. I would love to be able to speak fluent French or any language, it is a great talent to have!

Well being a filipino, i know how to speak Tagalog and Cebuano of course because im in cebu and im very well also with our international language english. Ive been trying to learn German language but it was really hard. Even to pronounce the word its really difficult for me. I prefer spanish language because in our native language there are some that is spanish.

Growing up, I attended a school (for 12 years) that taught its students English, Filipino and Chinese. I am fluent in English and Filipino, although I would rather talk in my dialect which is Ilonggo (different from Filipino). I am sooo ashamed to say that after 12 years of learning, I now can only remember basic Chinese (Mandarin and Fukien) sentences. I've taken a couple Spanish classes and can understand or engage in basic conversations. Having been under Spain for years, the Filipino language was largely influenced by the Spanish language so that made it easier for me to learn. I would like to re-learn Chinese and learn more about the Spanish language. I would really like to learn how to speak French because I am going to Paris someday, whenever that may be.

i speak 3 different languages. English, german and italian. those are enough for me. its nice knowing more than one language though. i have taught my children german, my husband taught them italian. and they will learn french in school.it opens so many more doors for you job wise to know more than one language.
