I learned some French and Hebrew, but I don't have an ear for languages. It's always been very difficult for me. Welcome to myLot!

I am multilingual actually. My native language, English plus a little bit of spanish. I tried learning french but it was just so hard for me. What language have you learned? I think it's great that you like learning them.

Ofcourse I like learning other languages, so my native language is Arabic, I understand almost all Arabic accents (Egypt, Maghrebin, Levant, countries of gulf). I speak French and I am a beginner in Spanish that I have a lot of words in mind. I have some indian words in mind as well and so on.

I learnt French and German at school many years ago. I have tried to learn more French as I thought it would be useful travelling through France. I'm glad I've kept trying as it's fun to be able to converse with those of other cultures.

Until today I practise French, because french words change their meaning from sentence to another. So, I like to enlarge enough any language that I learn. So keep going, I am glad to mee people more open to other language. Do you have any idea about arabic?

@Farcha Our niece lives in Luxor in Egypt so they all speak and write Arabic. I don't know much about it except that you have to read it from right to left. Duolingo seems a good website to help with learning a new language and it's free.

Learning other languages, you also learn about foreign cultures, traditions and ideologies. This changes you view and way of life. Languages are also my passion.

@Farcha Accepting the difference is a way to respect other people. If everyone would learn to respect the difference, we learn to live together in peace.

@Farcha I agree with you my friend since learning another language is learning also the culture, history and other things connected with such language from other people.

@Farcha That's not surprising, isn't it, considering that Arabs lived in Spain for about 300 years.

I think that learning other languages gives you a close look of the culture that's speak's that specipice language, and a close look on the heart of the culture. even in diffrent places that basicly speak the same language( like australia and england, argntine and colombia) thier having some diffences inside the language that come from the culture diffrences.
@Farcha (686)

Yes, you are totally right, that we call in arabic "lahja" Dialect/Accent. So, in Arab countries, each country has a dialect that differs from country to another.

@Farcha Yes, seems like the right word. after traveling around south america I came to notice a lot of language changes in spanish in every country I visited, from the use of words to the actual prenoncing

I start always learning a language for a practical reason, then I'll end up falling in love with it, and forget completely why do I started in the first place, I learned English cause 80% of the internet is written in English, but later when I have discovered Shakespeare, English became more then necessity or a hobby, It should be the second language in every country.

I am Jewish and while growing up we went to what was called Hebrew School after Public School. I really did not learn much Hebrew from it and did learn here in Israel. It is a hard language. I speak, but, not fluently and do not read and write very well. I found that when I watched a soap opera in Spanish with Hebrew subtitles that I could understand the gist of it. I also watched ones in Hebrew too. It is very good when you can learn other languages. I picked up bits and pieces of other languages here in Israel.
