    Does anyone here know a second language?

    I've been wanting all my life to learn Russian and mandarin language. I wanted to know how hard it is and does anyone speak another language! I heard English was the hardest language to learn so the others should be easier,right?

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Yup.
    Urdu/Hindi is my first language followed by English.
    I can read Arabic (can't understand it though, weird I know)

    I thinks its awesome when people have 3 or more languages

    English is my first. German is my second, and Spanish is a work in progress. lol

    German was quite easy to learn, but I have relatives that speak it, so I learned from them.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Well I know my first language fluently, Romanian, though I completely lost that fresh off the boat accent, which I'm glad I did, because I can't stand it when someone has it and has been speaking English for over 10 years just fine. I really wanna learn Japanese and German though.

    While you don't 'speak' it but I am learning american sign language. It's not too hard so far and it's really cool actually. People make a lot of assumptions about ASL most of which are wrong

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Remembering what word goes to what is a $#@!! Lol cuz some words use the same word and can mean different things. Especially the word "I" so many ways to say that.

    Conjugating verbs was a $#@! too. So many with their own special cases that don't follow any set standards.

    I have a good buddy that's been to like 20 different countries on practically every continent..he's picked up language from a lot. Told me that the hardest thing is most people have a form of slang to each language making it hard to be really fluent unless you live there extended periods...don't know if true but makes sense.

    Yeah that. I just tend to use the formal way of saying such things. I always get scolded from my grandmother when I use the wrong word when I really meant it to go the other way.

    Just English, a LITTLE LITTLE Italian, and I'd love to learn Japanese. Mainly for gaming, but also holiday purposes.

    Finnish is my first language.
    English is very strong because I went to an international school in Warsaw for 7 years as a kid.
    Swedish has to be learned by everyone here.
    French is something I picked up in school.
