Do You Have Another Language

But seriously, anyone that can speak more than 1 language are to be admired. Not including BS. Of course.

It turns out that I can speak mostly Devonian, with a dash of Cornish thrown in. But when abroad I do try to speak a bit of the lingo. Even if it does get me funny looks. Then they just speak to me in English anyway!

I speak

New Zealand


South African

Gibralterish

[email protected]*%hit too!


No seriously, I do speak a little Greek albeit broken. I was fluent but lack of use means I lost much of it, to my parents disgust!
:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:   Hahaha, you beat me to it. I was going to post something very similar. I can also speak Isle of Wight.... Beat That! lol...

Seriously though, I can speak a little German and plenty of double Dutch...

Its a good idea though, and google translate is very useful to use should anyone wish to post in another language.

 I speak a good bit of polish that I have learned in the past 9yrs working with  the poles :biggrin:

There very careful now what they say in front of me now :wink:

Its a very hard language to learn

I also speak  a hell of lot of polish that would be unrepeatable on this forum :shock: :lol:

But it works a treat on the timeshare touts when were on holiday in Spain when they approach us  :rofl:

They might be able to speak English German & French but when you speak polish to em they just go tongue tied :lol:

I only speak English but being from Australia some words over here mean different things. I'm trying so hard to not pick up the Geordie slang!

hehe bet that's hard! I remember some german from school and that's about it, apparently one of the birds we are picking up at the end of the month knows some welsh!! its not another language but being from Devon we talk strange down here, one of our expressions is' where's that to?' and until i went to uni and people didn't understand what i was saying i didn't realise it wasn't grammatically correct, peeps were like 'why do you put the to on the end of it!' got some really strange looks, funny isn't it how we all talk. xx

It's taught in all the schools here so young grandson is learning it.  So his mum (my daughter) thought she would too, its very hard, but she's in her 3rd year of lessons now and has done very well. But you need someone to converse with!

Down here in Pembrokeshire its not spoken that much although all signs are in Welsh and English so you get to know what they mean. But you only need to go a few miles away up to the Preslie's & Cardigan where its spoken a lot more.

I hope it doesn't die out though.

me too i would hate for that to happen, me and my partner go to wales a lot cause I'm obsessed with the place, i love your accents and hearing people spk welsh, when we visit i always have the welsh channel on but never pick up much! its very hard, that's so cool your daughter is learning it to that will help her son a lot to, you ever fancied learning it Di? xx
