If You Could Learn Any Language...

If you could learning any language in the world which would it be and why?

For me it would probably be Arabic. I think the language, when spoken, sounds lovely and I find it fascinating how people make words from fancy squiggles.

Python, because of its power and maturity in programming. smile001.gif

Okay, okay… serious answer: ancient Greek, Aramaic/Arabic/Hebrew, and Latin so I could read primary texts of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam without a filter, thereby increasing the depth of my understanding of significant influences on the society in which I live.

Good question! I have several I'd like to learn or improve my abilities in. 1) German--I have a master's degree in it, but if you don't use it, you lose it--so maybe a few weeks at the Goethe Institute in Munich? 2) Spanish--when the Trumpets start putting on uniforms, it's time to go, and I'm thinking Ecuador or Uruguay or Chile. 3) Korean, which I already have a basic knowledge of from the time I lived there, but would like to improve for my occasional visits.

I speak Spanish because i'm from Chile, and i also have a pretty decent level of english, but I'm currently trying to learn Dutch, because i'm moving there in a few years.
So if anyone needs some spanish practice, im totally willing to help.

Italian. It sounds musical and beautiful. Next time I go to Italy, I hope I can understand a little bit what the label says next to a marvelous artwork in the museum. No google translate can't do the job though I do use it often smile007.gif

I'm currently learning Spanish. I think the language sounds really pretty. I've heard learning Spanish or French helps when trying to learn other Romance languages.

Hindi, because my dad decided not to teach us while growing up. I've got some numbers, foods, & animals down already though!

Since it is the only other language I hear regularly other than English, I'd go with Spanish.

Funny you should ask. I had an aunt that I was very close to. She lived and worked in Germany and I got interested in that country. Joined the German club in HS and was trying to get stationed there while in the military with no luck. Nothing but pure luck presented an opportunity to go there after my military was over, and I took it. I not only got to learn the language but live in the country for 15 amazing years.
Incidentally, I learned that knowing another language goes a long way in having an insight in other cultures.

I've tried learning German but I've never been able to really devote any time to it. It was the first language I ever showed any interest in.

@mattbat637 My brother-in-law is from Iran. He came to the US at an early age and slowly forgot his Farsi. A couple of years ago he returned and spent a month in the country. His fluency returned to an amazing degree.
