    @shoop What s the difference between modern and ancient greek?

    @Mosesrocks Having tried to learn French, I am not yet entirely convinced that they're not just pretending to understand each other when they speak.

    Why is this tagged as food.
    How many tongues do you eat?
  • 1
    @halfflat I know right! I've studied french for fucking 15 years in school, and I've read entire books in french without problems!

    But for the fucking life of me, I can't fucking a single word when I watch some french series or movie on netflix.

    So I'm pretty sure they do pretend what anyone is saying.

    @Root Learn it! It is quite a difficult language, but we'd appreciate you as a speaker! Have you tried out Duolingo or something like that?
  • 1
    @skuzzymiglet0 Thanks! 🙂 I would love to learn it. I wanted to go to an all-gaelic high school in Ireland (where the placed you in gaelic-only households, too) to force myself to learn the language; parents weren't thrilled with the idea, though, and didn't allow it. Jerks.
  • 1
    @C0D4 the bogan. 😂
  • 0
    That I can remember, english and bits of spanish and latin. I had a small understanding of indian and a little cantonese and arabic at different points in time but only when spoken in context. I couldn't have picked out what the individual words meant or anything.

    @olback I'm learning Swedish, it seems very nice to me
  • 1
    @j4cobgarby I used to learn Swedish while learning Spanish. Learning a new language is an art. You gotta keep the consistency in learning. That was the lesson. I quit learning Swedish shortly and concentrating on Spanish.
  • 0
    @olback yeah. I used to hear like most of the people in Sweden are refugees. So most of them are actually learning Sweden still. Maybe that is the reason behind the hate.

    @cursee How come? Whats the story behind that confidence?
  • 1
    @cursee Yea I'm maybe like 1.69 adding everything up together. Unless you consider redneck as it's own individual language, I guess that would make it over 2 🤔
