I guess these "pure blood" you say are the ones I know xD

The funniest is that they are proud of something which is bad for them!

I speak Ukrainian, Russian and English. Ukrainian is my native language, but I know Russian better cause I've been living here for like 17 years. LOL, that's funny. Not.

@ Niko : LOL :crackup:

I speak mostly french, but I had when I was a little kid a babysitter who only spoke english so I got use to it and I can say I speak english too, if it wasn't for my pronunciation and spelling (which aren't really bad). I also watch english television 90% of the time.


Here in Quebec, most of the people speak French (due to the French colonization) but the English conquest brought a lot of anglophone, so much of the people speak both, or at least understand both.

Spanish is my native language, but i am also fluent in English. I took 3 years of French, so I know a little, but not enough to count it as a language I can speak.

3 Spanish native users for now :) very strange considering the large amount of people using Spanish in the world.

I voted as 2 languages, English being my first, the second being the few words and phrases I know from about a dozen other languages... Mostly though, I only know how to say "where's the bathroom" and "I don't speak this language"... For example: Japanese: "nihongo wakarimasen", Spanish: "no hablo espanol"', French: "je ne parle pas francais", German: "ich spreche kein deutch", etc etc.

how can this be considered as a second language?

^ uhm, depend ..... if, putting all the words and phrases of all the languages that you know together, you get the same number of words and phrases of a single language that you know ? ..... (j/k :D)

there's no way this can happen (just no way). I think people who don't know other languages don't understand how complex learning another language is xD

But you life in Canada, you are surrounded by English! All the English I read is here on LPF, random Internet sites and English songs... xD

I have just barely skimmed this thread, but the more recent posts compelled me to write this.

English (My primary language) is in fact one of the most difficult languages for a non English speaking person to learn.

Nearly every other language on earth has completely different words where we use the same ones.

Classic example.

I went to the store to buy two apples and some pears too.

Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French are easier for an English speaker to learn, than the other way around.

Personally I hold the utmost respect for non English speaking people who adjust and learn this non native language, just to communicate with the likes of us.

This is one of the aspects that kills me the most about it. It's kinda hard to get used to it xD

Anyway, this about english being the hardest to learn... You should see a Spanish verbs table. heck, look at it ;) This is all the ways a verb can go based on the time of the action, the person (I you he etc), and other facts. You must learn this table for the regular verbs and each individual table for each irregular verb. Good luck!

"learn" verb:

Formas del verbo aprender

You now reconsider it?
