"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Excellent @roromao83, to me it means that you fell in love with German and you'll not let its grammar spoil it.

    @zom so you like to learn different languages simultaneously. Nice!
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,899 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    In my case, when a language jumps in at some point, it doesn't kick the other ones out.

    I like Portuguese and English, but I might be biased since those are the languages I can speak and understand! Although I don´t like how many conjugations there are in Portuguese (I think English verbs are easier)...

    I think the Portuguese spoken by Brazilians sounds like music and is the most beautiful language to listen to (@Helvio?).

    I love wandering around in London as you hear so many different languages. I'm not so familiar with some, though I can tell the difference between Polish and Russian. But Serbian, Czeck, Hungarian - I'd be hard pushed to distinguish between these languages.

    @mheredge how can write latters in the Portuguese language, like English or different latters!?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,599 mod
    Most European languages like Portuguese and English use the Roman alphabet @roromao88. Greek is an obvious exception. Some European languages have accents on the letters like the French language, umlauts in German and some languages maybe have the odd letter that's different. But generally they are similar. Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, Georgian, Albanian however, just to name a few examples, have completely different alphabets.

    Yes, I can and I think it is easier for me than English.

    @mheredge Any One have a mother language .so he will see the different languages difficult for him.example about Arabic language in the middle esat have a different accents. for example in North Africa specifically the Morocco Arabian (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) a mixture of Arabic and french and in Egypt they have a different accent and the gulf countries they have different accent too and so and so ..
    but all countries in middle east they understand each other with out a different accents for speek and sometimes for the write too, but the other people if needs learn Arabic should be start learn a purely Arabic and then learn different accents in Arabic to make the understand easy for them .I think not many people know that about Arabic language. so the a mother language can be specific how the different languages can be difficult for you, because some languages almost the same without a little bit different from all the world, i mean from all continents or what nationality are you !. :)

    @roromao83 I forget to mention that I also like Arabic language because it is the Quranic language as well. Now, I have developed a basic understanding of it due to the recitation of Holy Quran daily.

    @bubbli :) Well Don my friend.nice to know that too .
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @roromao83 thanks.

    You are welcome any time @bubbli :)
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,899 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @naturalconan, Methinks that you haven't discovered yet what would have the same impact as Japanimes, but for your English. When you do, you might find that learning English is almost as easy as Japanese.

    I had a friend who learned Arabic in the Middle East @roromao83, but then found he couldn't understand or be understood in Morocco. But then I sometimes have problems following someone from Glasgow even if they think that they're speaking the same language.
  • roromao83roromao83 Posts: 187 ✭✭
    @mheredge ok I understood :) . but where is Glasgow?
  • londonlondon Posts: 14 ✭✭
    My favorite language is English !
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,599 mod
    Glasgow is in Scotland @roromao83. Some of the British regional accents can be difficult to understand and the Glasweigian accent is sometimes one of the hardest.

    Japanese... because i love watching Anime and read Manga.
    Indonesian... because it's my mother language.
    English... because... em... i want to talk with many people from abroad.

    But the language that I really - really - really want to learn is Arabic . I haven't had the opportunity to learn. Someday i will.
