    They're probably my biggest passion!

    I'm currently learning French and Mandarin but I one day hope to learn Japanese as well. I also have relatives in Hungary who I can't even communicate with so Hungarian is a must-learn! I'm more attracted to languages with an interesting writing system - that's what attracted me...

    No Barriers

    Since I was little, languages have captivated me. I was raised in an English speaking home, though my dad speaks Spanish too. He began teaching me Spanish as soon as Icould talk. I am not perfect at the language, but I get compliments, which encourage me to try harder, and speak...

    I speak some love...

    and in body language, I'm fluent. Sarcasm is a language I don't much like. The worst language one can speak is that of ignorance. You may speak English but that doesn't mean you don't speak ignorance.

    Earlier in the former communist countries it

    was quite a job to find people in the street who could speak English. Russian was compulsory, but without a serious motivation almost nobody learnt it. There are changes in this field, as well. This summer one day I took a nice excursion in Slovakia. At a lake a Slovakian girl...

    I want to learn so many of them!

    Is it weird that I get eargasms when I hear people speaking foreign languages?...xD I think French, Spanish, and Polish sound very beautiful, even sexy. I am pretty fluent in Vietnamese and English equally. I'm going to continue taking Spanish soon, and later on, I'm planning to...

    English is my first language

    but I also speak fluent German and Mandarin. I also speak a little French, Spanish and Italian. I'd love to learn either Russian or a more obscure language like Tamil or Mongolian just purely for fun.

    I've always wanted to learn Italian

    or French. I think those are sexy accents and I love hearing it. I would also like being able to speak some mandarin. You could also say I've thought Australian was always soothing to my ear but I'm not sure whether or not Australian is a language.
