Default Languages You Wish You Knew

For me, learning languages just seems to be extremely hard. I wish I knew French, as my mother can speak it perfectly. I know a few words, but I had a horrible teacher in high school and the Rosetta Stone program for French is just so ungodly boring.

And yeah, knowing Japanese would probably help too when it comes to video games and anime. Although yeah, that definitely looks tough to learn how to read and write as well.

I wish I knew Japanese because it's really cool in my opinion.

French because it sounds sexy. Japanese because I love a lot of Japan-made things and Mandarin. I also wish I had a European English accent. :p

I do plan on going to Pokemon Centers in Japan one day.
I also agree with you Harry! I would love to be able to read the current news and translate for others!

I'd be the guy that translates like this. XD

I would love to learn every language. This way I could call everyone an idiot in their native tongue. XD

Japanese. Then I could get the games that are coming here, before they come out here, but in Japan, and I could understand it! :D

Mandarin Chinese. It would be extremely useful. I know a couple languages other than English already (both for functionality), but Mandarin would be very nice to know.

have you thought of investing in japanese translators? ;p
unless you already have some...?


i'd like to learn korean more, not because of kpop or to "UNDERSTAND MY OPPARS" but because i want to teach english there.
i want to expand my market for soap when i live there. (i make soap)
i want to help astromafia by expanding my workload from "graphics" to translating and i feel they need more korean translators.
i have lots of korean friends who i teach english, i'd love to have a break and just yammer on in korean to them.
i bake, i'd like to bake my favourite companies artists personalised cookies w/ a note not in english (they speak japanese tho too) plus thank the company even after all the hard times of the past few months.


i'd also like to learn japanese because i want to visit japan (one of my friends husbands is stationed there, i want to go see her)
plus japan is pretty.
