In how many languages can you introduce yourself?

September 10, 2017 12:05am CST
I speak 4 languages: English, German, Cebuano and Filipino(Tagalog). Let me introduce myself briefly then. My name is Roni and I live in the Philippines. I work as a teacher. German: Mein Name ist Roni und ich lebe in den Philippinen. Ich bin eine Lehrerin von Beruf. Cebuano: Akong pangalan si Roni ug nagpuyo ko sa Pilipinas. Filipino: Ako po ay si Roni at nakatira sa Pilipinas. How about you?

I can introduce myself in German, English, Italian, Russian and Turkish. I haven't written the sentences because I can't write Russian letters here and not all Turkish letters. -- May I ask why you've chosen a username in German? Not even a handful of members can understand it.

Wow! Five languages! That's amazing. I was able to live in Germany when I was ten years old and stayed there for 3 years. I've chosen this username to make it unique. I'm also a teacher

i think being able to read and write in another language that uses a different alphabet (not just speak) is amazing.

@ronelaine it's remarkable that you can still remember all these years (since you say you lived there back when you were 10).

@hereandthere When my parents visit me, we sometimes use German. Then I still have contact with my friends in Germany, specifically my classmates in Elementary

Hi, thanks for your comment. You also know many languages, too. Are Telugu and Malayalam also languages spoken in India?

@ronelaine yes it is. There are about 22 major languages spoken in India across different states and also many more unknown languages spoken within the states.

I'm learning Spanish but I'm not progressing as much as I want to. I can introduce myself in three languages, Tagalog, English, and sarcasm.

Sarcasm is the least preferred and a kind of rude language.
