  1. I wish I could speak 6 languages!  That would be so cool!  I think people who speak fluently in many languages have the ability to use those languages daily.  You have to speak it often to keep it, is what I think. So if they are bilingual, and speak both languages often, they will retain them.

    But how cool!!  I would love to go to another country and speak their language enough to get by, without relying on English.

  2. I love languages.  But I agree that it would be great to have ONE language that everyone knows.  And can communicate with. I'm not saying it has to be English, but I feel that that is widely-used language, in different countries already.  But Spanish is well known too.  It would be nice to have such easy communication!

    However, I also think same = boring.  It's neat to learn different cultures and languages.

  3. Thank you for the replies!

    I like that last reply, got me thinking... yes, it is a way to deliver the language.  That's true.  But it does have it's own way of" talking", so isn't that a language?  Very interesting indeed.

    I want to learn more sign language.  I know many baby signs, I teach them to my kids.  But I could never meet a deaf person and totally communicate, unless it involved a lot of finger-spelling.  LOL

  4. It drives me crazy!  And I HATE when my kids do it, because I feel like they don't even have the English language down pat yet.....they don't spell perfect, so why purposely misspell words?  Some of the abbreviations, like IKR (I know, right) or BRB (be right back) don't bother me.  But it's the text speak of "r u going 2nite" make my skin crawl!

  5. When I was 14, I went from home (USA) to Spain for a month as an exchange student.  I lived with a host family.  I had a great experience!  They brought me around the country, and Portugal too.  We saw cathedrals that were gorgeous.  I spent lots of time at the beach, and at night, the night life was wonderful!  I had ice cream that I've never been able to find again but it was so delicious.  I cherish the memories from that time.  I wish I could go back now!

  6. It's funny because some friends and I were just talking about this!  We know eachother online... so we each uploaded a video of ourselves talking.  I don't think I have an accent, but I was told I definitely do!  Some people sounded "normal" to me, so they really sound like people I live with/ near.  Some people have true accents that I can tell... Southern, Jersey, etc.  Most of us are from the USA.  It's so neat!
