Yesterday, I saw three customers from Germany. There was a woman who can speak three languages: German, English and Vietnamese. Our customers talked to each others by German and English. That woman translated to Vietnamese for us. I really admiration her. She can speak my mother language very well. She even can say slang words. After the meeting, I have wondered myself that I must study more English. I must improve all skills. I would like to be good in English as that woman.

haha well I travel often (= I am only 18. But I always have been in situations where I had to learn the languages. It was not easy to learn them, but I am still glad I did. I speak Tamil ( Indian languages, my mother tongue) I leant english at school when I was young. Moved to germany, learnt German there cause i was in a local school. I also took French because I had to do it as a extra language at school. So if you really wanna learn, my best tipp is that you go to the country for a few months to learn the language! It only took me like 3 months to learn German in Germany (also if you do it, move, enroll in intensive language classes... like 4 hours a day.. thats very useful too) cheers :D

thank you for your sharing. I don't have chances to go oversea. I'm trying to learn English much more. However, the successful ratio is little. I'm bored.

I also would love to learn to speak and write a lot of languages. French is a word that I really like to learn, Spanish might be a little easy as some part in our country can speak a few words of it. Nihonggo is another language I wish to learn... and now I also want to learn Arabic.

It's great because almost people around you can speak Spanish. You can practice everyday. I wish I can have a good chance like you.

It's not hard to learn English, in fact you are doing great every day here. So I am guessing you will be good at it in no time. Just keep on practicing and your hard work will surely be rewarded.
