Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

Is anyone here fluent in a language other than English? :D If so, what is your level of fluency? oni43

 

I'm learning Japanese at the moment- my level is... very much a beginner XD heheh but hopefully fluent one day!

 

I used to speak a bit of French and German, but that was at school and a really long time ago now... oni106 hehehe

 

So, post below!

I am fluent in Vietnamese...I can read and write it at an intermediate level since I took the course back in Elementary. I'm not sure about now though,42.gif

Other than that, I took Spanish 1 in 7th grade(I forgot everything T_T) and am currently taking French 2.

Active but working like a slug -_____-

Romanian...duh XD. But that doesn't count since it's my mother language so I'll have to brag about how good I'm at english compared to my fellow romanians, but that would be a lie since most romanians my age are pretty fluent in english XD.

Ah, I also knew german at a medium level, but I haven't spoken a german word in 4 years now, so I kind of forgot a lot, but I think if I decide to study german again I'll remember most of the stuff I forgot in a short period of time.

Man...I'm so good at bragging! oni48

Same with Tail, I'm pretty fluent at Vietnamese as well (dad makes me speak Viet at home as much as possible) though I wouldn't say I know the language completely. It normally only gets me by just barely in a conversation oni102 My reading is pretty good but I don't write as well. Good thing I'm still learning 8DD

 

I'm also taking Mandarin in school right now, but my teacher isn't teaching me much so... ;w; Good thing some of our manga are written in Traditional Chinese. I can practice reading while proofreading oni36

Give me your cookies

School likes to torment me. Therefore I will be slower than the slowest thing here. ;w;

Romanian - Legendary

French - was epic, now probably below average

English - Above average, nobody dares to correct me because it says "head PR" in my title.

Latin - can read, write (if given time) but can't speak because it takes me too much to conjugate the verb/decline the nouns in my head

Hungarian - i can curse better than a native speaker

bits of Spanish/Italian/Portuguese. I can understand if you talk to me, but i suck at anything else related to them.

Anime level Japanese. I know a few hundred useless kanjis and I can read hiragana/katakana at the speed of a mediocre 4th grader.

Lol, you had someone in the family who teaches you or you just wanted to know the language to know when the hungarians were cursing you? XD I also had an attempt to learn it at one point but then decided I just don't like it and gave up @[email protected]

Chinese (Cantonese) - Fluent-ish? Very limited vocabulary, I guess XD

Spanish - Kind of fluent? I've been taking it a few years, so I can write fluently (limited vocabulary, as well), but speaking it is another story. >_>

 

English - Above average, nobody dares to correct me because it says "head PR" in my title.

Now if only you would actually be willing to speak English and prove that. *cough* >_>

I feel the same way!! I'm always asking my mom what certain words mean oni55 (and then I forget them later o_o)

but this summer I learned what "jelous" and "dating" is oni48 mostly because me and my mom were playing mah jong with an old lady with serious Alzheimer, and she kept asking the same exact question and I kept asking my mom what the words meant XD

Yeah... Whenever my mom talks to me about something, I'm always asking what a term she used means, but then I always forget. XD

 

I know what dating is because my mom's talked to me about it so many times already (even though I don't care about relationships right now *cough* ~_~)

 

I'm sure your Canto's better than mine, though ><

:o you guys know Cantonese? Awesome!! Two of my friends speak Cantonese, and then my TA in high school did, too, but they had different accents. Apparently one had a country accent and the other had a city one. But another friend I have knows Mandarin and a but of Taiwanese. I thought Mandarin was more common since they teach it at our university...

 

Ah, anyway. I know a few phrases in Cajun French, but not enough to hold a conversation. Besides, native Cajun French speakers are usually illiterate, so it's useless unless you have family and friends that speak it.

 

Er, I can read hiragana like a baby. XD and also form tiny sentences, but can't hold a conversation in Japanese. I used to be the same way with Latin since I studied it for a year, but not anymore :(.

 

Also, I know enough Spanish to understand what's going on in a few conversation and books, but if you ask me to speak it, I'll stare at you blankly. I cant translate directly, but I can paraphrase.

 

And I can say I love you in Korean and that's it XD sarang hae.

Oh! And I can say I'm a pig in Taiwanese. Wa shi dii

I think the "country Cantonese" is actually better known as Taishanese, which I always referred to as Canto in a country accent, as well. XD

 

My dad's family speaks Taishanese, but my mom's side speaks Cantonese. A lot of words in Taishanese are similar to Canto, but according to my mom, the accent is usually very heavy, and there are words that are completely different, so she often has trouble understanding it. A lot of my friends speak one or the other, but can understand both. I understand Taishanese because I grew up hearing it, but I speak Canto because of my parents. ^^"

English - oni36 Hahaha! Need to ask?

Chinese - Very, very fluent. Mandarin only, but I can understand some southern dialects that don't sound too different from Mandarin. I read both simplified and traditional.

Hebrew - Used to be my dominant language, but now have forgotten a lot of the vocab. I can probably recall them all in a week though. I know the entire alphabet in Hebrew in sign language too. oni48

Spanish - Reached level 5 in school before I decided to quit because I loathed the teacher. Fue una puta maliciosa oni76.

 

My Japanese level is bad, but I seem to be able to understand most some of what my Japanese-speaking friends say when they communicate with each other in Japanese. Of course, I can read some Kanji, given my background in Chinese.

I grew up listening to Cantonese songs, so I can understand a little of Cantonese when the language is spoken.

I learned French for 3 months in Israel, but French level is laughable.

I can also understand a little bit of the Zhuang language, which is a language spoken by the Zhuang people, who are one of the 56 ethnic groups in China. It's the native language for my grandparents.

I'm fluent in Vietnamese (but illiterate oni30 )

I can translate Spanish if given a crapload of time to and speak it like a 3rd grader with a lisp.

And I'm learning Mandarin at a super slow pace, Cantonese even slower.

 

I like English. English good. oni22

I was just going to lurk this but after reading joey mention the szechuan/sichuan dialect I couldn't help but chime in. I'm from the sichuan province actually :D well my parents are...

 

I remember there was one time my best friend asked her mother "where are my shoes" in full sichuan dialect, and I almost died from laughing because it sounded like "where is my child." She was 5.
