I live in Peru and a full 30% of Americans here do not speak Spanish and I hear similar comments from other expat groups around the world.

It is another example of my fellow Americans saying...do as we say, not as we do. It is a value we push on you that we actually do not follow ourselves.

Then why don't we speak Cherokee, Navajo, or Lakota here? Actually, in Kansas, German was spoken here until WWI when they became an enemy. There are a lot of languages spoken in the US. Let's not kill any of them. Of course, to do business and get a job, you must speak the language of the country in which you live.

I think Thai would be fun to learn. But I would also like to be more fluent in the languages I have studied. To me all languages are fun and musical.

Chinese because at the rate of downfall of the United States, we are all going to need it.

Ni Hao, Kai Lan. See I am already off to a good start.

Just make sure you learn Mandarin and not something less useful like Cantonese!

Spanish would be nice because it comes in handy with a lot of jobs here. But I really want to know French. I took one semester, it was SO hard...I love anything that has to do with France though, so maybe someday.

I speak English, Spanish and American Sign Language.

I would like to learn Sign Language in other countries.

denak 5 years, 3 months ago

I have heard that American Sign Language is largely based on French so perhaps learning French and FSL (or would it be SLF???) won't be as hard as trying to learn sign language in any other language.

Funny, I've been trying to learn redneck for a long time for the same reason. And my mechanic is my cousin...

Are you really that arrogant and ignorant. You shame our country.

Cruise around the American southwest sometime & try to count how many people don't speak English.......

Probably Latin. Everyone in my building is Latin and they speak it all the time and I can't understand what they are saying. I think they might be talking about me.

Na'Vi, so I can pick up ten-foot tall incredibly lithe blue chicks.

I want to learn Chinese. Since our country is about 80% owned by them. I figure I better learn the language when they come to collect.

I was going to say Bachi but whoever said Jive did me one better.

I want to learn Russian because I want to help Jack Bauer who is presently in a helicopter being followed by US planes as he investigates an Russian attempt to plant a dirty bomb in Manhatten.

gphawk89 5 years, 3 months ago

Chinese. OklahomaJayhawk beat me to it. It'll be an advantage in just a few years when more than half the population here is Chinese.

Tom McCune 5 years, 3 months ago

"Chinese" is not a language. There are over 30 languages spoken in China. Mandarin is the largest, with Cantonese the second largest. But there are many more.

I took 2 years of Russian in high school and a KU class totally in Russian on Dostoyevsky and 25 years later all I can remember is how to cuss, say please and spit out your gum.

Tom McCune 5 years, 3 months ago

Spasiba, Mixolydian. That uses up 50% of my Russian vocabulary.
