What language(s) do you speak?
Posted by Brian (+362) 13 years ago
Just wondering how many different languages (other than English) can be spoken on the mean streets of Miles City.

I can speak very little Spanish, yet I can understand about 75% of it spoken to me. I'm trying to learn Russian and Japanese.

Anybody else?

Mostly C#, some C, C++ and Java. A little PHP. HTML (although not technically a language)...

Je parle Français.

J'ai vecu en Belgique pendant un ans comme etudiant d'echange en 1991-1992.

Maintenant, j'accueille une fille belge ici aux État-Unis. Elle est arriver il-y-a quelque jours et reste ici jusqu'à janvier.

I speak French.

I lived in Belgium for one year as an exchange student in 1991-1992.

Now, I am hosting a Belgian girl here in the United States. She arrived several days ago and will stay here until January.

Bon soir mes amis!

Bob,
I don't speak your language. I studied Spanish, french, and latin in school. Six years of Spanish, two in college, two years of french and two years of latin. I was raised with Swedish and German grandparents. I had one teacher who spoke Russian and taught me a few words, enough for the basics. Spanish is great because my granddaughter who is not even two speaks it from watching Dora. French is an advantage as I have a friend who used to live in Miles City who has been living in France for a long time. She speaks both obviously and sometimes we converse online in French. My Dad remembers his parents speaking Swedish and sometimes speaks to me in Swedish. I am not exposed to anyone speaking German these days as my German relatives have sadly all passed.

Kacey,

Listening to Rammstein will help with your German.

I don't speak it but I have enough experience with the "fairer sex" that I understand Bitcharooniatooni very well.

Speaking it's easy - it's figuring out when to capitalize and where the '...' goes when you're writing it that's so hard.

I admire your creativity in finding a way to pay the high rent you were concerned about... get a foreign exchange student.
