Thread: Do you speak a foreign language?

    Do you speak a foreign language?

    Okay before anyone tells me this is a pet poll not a place for discussing other things... I know okay? I was just wondering how many people here speak a foreign language. A foreign Language is anything other than english. I personally speak some spanish. I understand a whole lot more than I can speak. Ironic yes but true! If you speak a lot not all of one just do yes. oh and post what language it is!

    No, but, I'd love to learn as many as I possibly can. Latin, Greek, Spanish, French, German, Italian...tons more! Language has always fascinated me. I guess Spanish would be the smartest language for me to learn right now. But, I've heard somewhere that you can learn Latin, you can learn anything. Not sure how true that is, but, it's what I remember hearing.

    Actually a foreign language is anything other than your native language So someone on this board could have been raised speaking spanish, but now speak english perfectly fine and english would be the foreign language.


    I speak a little french. My grandpa on my mom's side is full french, so I am 1/4 french. I took french for two years in high school and learned enough that I can pick up on what fluent speakers are saying and can reply, in very simple terms.

    I was getting ready to edit my post with the same thing!

    There are many polls in here, way before you joined, shihtzulover850, that have absolutely nothing to do with pets. It's completely fine to post polls. People are filling them out, so, obviously they're participating, so, you're doing something right. I personally like them! So, thanks!

    Oh, and, I took French and Spanish in high school, but, remember very little of either, unfortunately.

    I speak some Spanish! I like Shitzulover850 understand more than I can speak! My father was mexican, so i picked up alot from his side of the family(when he was in my life) I have not used it alot in life, but there have been times it has come in handy. I spent some time in Honduras when I was in the military, and was appointed as Translator for my Unit. Talk about It all coming back to you! he he he!! I have also taught my 6yr old some spanish.

    A foreign language is any language other than the one you speak in the country where you live. Is this poll only for english speaking members?

    One question though ... what's the reason for setting this up in Pet Poll? Why not in General?

    Ah oui! Je parle français ! J'aime la langue et l'avais parlée pendant trois années.

    Ich spreche auch Deutsches! Ich mag wirklich Deutsches, weil die Wörter so merkwürdig sind auszusprechen!

    ego parvum Latinum scribere et dictare possum.

    And of course I speak English too. I would like to teach myself Spanish, I had a CD which I used, but it was useless so I'll have to try something else
