Yesterday’s thread on language learning in China got me wondering how many foreign languages we have got under our collective belts. French, Swedish, Spanish, Italian and German spring immediately to mind. Are there any others?
No false modesty. I’m interested even if you’ve only got survival skills in a language. If you can order a beer, flirt on a rudimentary level or ask where the loo is, you’re in.
Think about it. How many words do you need to express your opinion on Steely Dan in a foreign language? “Je l’adore” and “Merde” should suffice.
