English is not my first language.Although maybe I can't master it very perfectly,I can already maintain my daily life with it at least.Meanwhile,I have interest in Germany language a bit right now so that I will learn it soon in the near future.Then what about you? Have you thought about learning another language and which language is it? I am quite curious about your response.

I want to learn a lot of languages - Spanish, Japanese, Korean, German, Russian, French, Chinese! I know a little Spanish, and have started with Japanese and Korean. Just need more time to study them all.

WOW,that's quite tough for you to learning so many kinds of foreign languages! Definitely there is too little spare time to master them all.But your passion in learning languages is very very reverential and awesome! Well,As a Chinese myself,maybe I can teach you some Chinese selflessly sometime.

yes, it is a bit daunting. but, i had a teacher who knows at least 20! languages, and is attempting to learn others more. the brain is amazing. sometimes, it can do a lot of things that are beyond our expectations. Thanks for the offer to teach Chinese! Xie xie (is that correct?) :) I actually have a CD including those languages, but, sometimes I get so busy, there's little time (and energy) to spend for learning languages.

Yes,the pronouncing of the phrase“Thank you"in Chinese is“Xie Xie”,and it is written as “??”. I have to say that I admire your lanuage genius teacher very much.As a matter of fact,there are quite a lot similarities in many different languages so that we can master them all well once we have found the rules. I think the cleverest and the most efficient way to study is trying to find universal principles,then we can almost deal with each difficulty.

Besides English, actually I am interested in French because I think it is also a popular language which can be used for some countries. I did learn some of it, but I found that French is much more difficult than English. I love China

Yes,I agree with you.Compared with English,French is much more difficult to learn and master.Firstly its pronunciation is much more difficult for me.Besides,in China we start to learn English even since our childhood,but making up your mind to learn another kind of foreign language just costs us our spare timem,so the process must be very tough.Whatever,I will try my best to master German well in the near future,then prhaps I will try learning French.

Because we must contact with Japanese,I have learnt Japanese more than four years. As a Chinese,Japanese is similar to Chinese,so at begin we can easy to maste simply sentence.But after that,I find that Japanese is so hard to express our feeling by what we study from the book. So I think every language has its unique, if we want to learn it,we will spend more time and effort to master it.

You are right.There are quite a lot similarities between Chinese and Japanese.Although we Chinese don't know their language's pronunciation at all,we can still figure out the meanings by their handwriting,because there are a great number of Chinese in Japanese.

I want to learn French. I am learning a bit of French using Rosetta stone software. I want to learn German as well but first want to finish off basics of French.

English is not my first language either. However I like to learn this language because it is widely used throughout the world and it has helped me earn some money in my article writing job using the English language. If I am given the opportunity I would like to learn Arabic because this language is used in my religion. By knowing Arabic language in a great extent I believe I am able to further my understanding about the religion and be a more proficient follower.

I would like to learn to speak fluent Mandarin because I have lots of Chinese friends and I don't understand most of what they are talking when they speak in Chinese. Besides, I also love to watch Chinese dramas but I have to depend on the subtitles to understand the stories. Previously I have taken mandarin class but they only taught me basic mandarin words. I'd like to pursue my mandarin class to the advanced level, but I don't seem to have time for it. Maybe when I finally have the time to do it, I'll enroll myself in the course again :)
