teeekilicious18 Posted December 21, 2016 Report Share Posted December 21, 2016 Hey, I'm curious. University in Rome, Italia have accepted me and was told to apply for scholarship so this is the reason why I'm studying "french, spanish and Italia" just to prepare for it. Okay so, my native language is Malay because my race is Malay. My mum is Singaporean and my dad is from Malaysia. In Singapore, all of us have to understand mandarin chinese but only I can understand a few of mandarin chinese. I could have mastered chinese till now but because my dad's job been migrated to Jakarta, Indonesia, I can speak Bahasa Indonesia very well for 6 years and even aced the Indonesian IGCSE exams. Malay and Bahasa Indonesia are same route tbh which is nothing so when I'm in Indonesia, I was told to have my 4th language & I choose arabic over french because I'm a muslim but my friends pick french so I can understand french to. so as a muslim, all my life I have been studying arabic but can't speak one word. arabic and chinese are the hardest language to master seriously. its no walk in the park. so then, when I returned back home to Singapore after completing my high school in jakarta, Indonesia for work experiences to get better entry for uni, I am also in european language sch to continue with my french and then in that language school, I was told to add on Spanish and German. I learned Italia by myself and tbh, learning italia after french is much easier than learning spanish after french. but I kinda canceled out German since no one in Singapore that I knew speaks German so I chickened out. besides, I am still learning arabic whilst french and spanish at school. me studying arabic is at different school of course. here's the curiosity part. maybe, i can learn German in Italy when I've mastered French, Spanish and Italia. But I've heard, when I'm in Italy, as an art student, I may have to study Romanian as well since Italia and Romanian is similar to. Then when I'm done with Uni in Rome, I'm hoping to master Arabic by getting a work experience at UAE and after all this shenanigans, when I've returned home I will then.. continue to master Mandarin Chinese because I'm Singaporean. So am I like under Proto-Italic family? Having to be able to speak : Malay, Indonesian, English, French, Spanish, Italia, German, Romanian, Arabic and Chinese. Which PIE family am I? I just need diagnosis hahahaha... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
