I love learning foreign languages. Right now, i can speak 4 languages frequently....But I am 30 years old now, I don't know if I have the time or energy to learn one or two more foreign languages..........How do you feel about it? Are you interested in learning more languages?

Hi. maggiewinner. I want to speak about three more languages. Spanish, Cuban, and French. I think that these are interesting foreign languages to learn.

hi Yes I am interesting to learn a lot of other languages. but I do not want to say because I am getting older,so I might think to stop my ideas,hehe never stop study though we grow old ;-) I speak Cantonese,then I learn Mandarin,then I learn English,then I want to learn Spanish, But still I remember one of my customer said to me,that it's better speak perfect English, not a little bit Spanish and a little bit English,hmmm after he said that,I have changed my mind to stop learn Spanish at the same time that I learn English. Now I do not speak perfect English,but I guess you still understand my just ok English, which mean you understand what i am talking about now right? hah So I start to learn German now....its little bit hard,but I try my best

I m not interested in learning more languages but as these languages are very essential to understand its recognized world so I have not any problem to learn another language but I am not sure whether I have time or not but age should not be the problem because there are no limit of age for learning.i don't know why people always talk about age.Can you tell me why?

I love learning languages. I know two languages and three dialects (local languages in our country). I'm now trying Spanish, Korean and Japanese on my own, but probably will look for some formal lessons. Yes, you can I daresay. I'm 31! We had a professor in college who kept learning various languages. He was 50-ish then, and he knew 17 languages. That was almost ten years ago, so I think he's learned some more.

Yes I would definitely would want to learn more foreign languages. I know only 2 right now including English. I would want to learn Japanese and Chinese. That would be great if I have the time. :)
