And I mean without having to learn it, if you catch my drift :P

I'd love to be able to speak Portuguese, I think it's such a beautiful language :)

^ I agree, Portuguese is a fantastic sounding language. I can read some and understand when it's spoken because of it's relation to Spanish. I would love to properly learn it someday, however.
For me, it would be Italian or French.

A BIG thanks to the beautiful BoMa, my big sister <3. I know I haven't been around much to talk, but you're more than amazing and I'm so happy to receive this graphic as a gift. Thanks for being so kind-hearted. ;)

I'd like to be fluent in French, but at the moment I speak more Franglais than French. Speaking Chinese would be VERY useful though, you could get a very well paid job translating between English and Chinese.

For me it would be Arabic (Egyptian Arabic). I agree Chinese would be very useful. I also like Korean.

Im now taking courses on simultaneous interpretation between Chinese and English.It's really a kinda fantastic work.
Personally,I'd like to speak fluent English,German,Italian and Spainish.I took German course last semester,just a beginner.

If I could only choose one it'd definitely be Japanese, it's the most beautiful language. :)
Apart from that I'd love to be fluent in Spanish (only understand 50% and speak nothing at the moment), and russian! Russian is soooo beautiful, and Swahili because it's awesome.

There's no language I don't want to learn, pretty much. I'm crazy about languages :excited:

Я мало знаю русский язык, но я учусь говорю по-русский. I'd love to learn how to speak German and French. It'd also be nice to get some touch-ups on Tagalog.
