    - Italian
    - German
    - Spanish
    - Russian
    - Chinese

    The first because I like that language a lot, the others because I want to communicate at many different continents.

    Arabic
    Chinese
    Portuguese
    Italian
    German

    I suppose you can go everywhere if you speak these languages, apart from English, French and Spanish... :)

    Portuguese. I have good reading knowledge of French and Spanish so think it would be easy to learn; harder to speak but I like the sound of Portuguese even more. Would love to understand Brazilian porn endearments and exclamations!

    Russian.


    Always was fascinated by their history. Scoring with their chicks would have been a great benefit!

    The first thing I'd like to do is resuscitate my fading French.
    And then I'd like to know Spanish.

    Actually "ciao bello,signor" doesn't mean much in Italian....:)
    It just means: "Hi handsome,mister"....you wouldn't say it in english either....if you mean to say: "very good,mister",you'll have to say "molto bene,signore"....it's my own language so i know it pretty well....:)

    It is a good effort since I didn't use Google Translate to write any of that.

    :wink:

    I wasn't writing the same in different languages though. I was writing stupid yet simple sentences to get the point across. Hehehe.

    Spanish. I regularly vacation in SE Texas and would like to understand and speak more than I do. But at my age it's difficult to pick up more than rudimentary knowledge.

    Probably Korean. Haven't been there yet, so I'll probably decide after I go there. If not, I suppose I'll finally learn more than the cursory amount of Spanish that I know from back in high school.
