I'm just interested in what other lanuages people out there know or are familiar with? Of course there will be Polish and English. Can anyone add any others to the list?

Myself = French, German, Russian, Japanese, Irish Gaelic and Polish.... ALL AT BASIC LEVEL I MIGHT ADD!

As I grow older, my language interests deepen...

Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, Montenegrian, that is already 4 :) I can understand Macedonian, and few words of SLovenian.

OK, seriously average Russian, English, German, basic Spanish. I am illiterate.

I was typical math and physics type, not verbal. Orality is not my stronger side.

I have problem to be precise, concise and relevant. So in person, I tend to count more than to talk.

Fluent (from birth): English, Polish.-

Intermediate to advanced (though rapidly worsening now due to lack of opportunity to speak): Czech.

Used to know to reasonable conversational level: French (almost completely forgotten now).

Used to know very basic conversation: Italian, Cantonese (all forgotten now).

Sadly, the only German I know is "Polen-Invasion stoppen", lol :D

I really need to start travelling again soon, because that makes me get the language courses out :)

If I won the Lottery, one of my goals would be to learn enough basic conversation to communicate with virtually everyone in the world - so I would brush up on the French, then learn some Russian, Arabic, Spanish, Hindi and Mandarin. I would also play the "Asians who want to learn Polish" game, and learn Afrikaans - simply because I love Afrikaner women (and especially their accents) haha :)

Crow and I are Serbs. Crnogorac is Montenegrian, Blackadder and El Croata :) are Croats.

No more Serbs here ;) (Blackadder this was a joke, El Croata for you it is not a joke :))

Seriously, as one of the women who possess sadistic or and masochistic traits balanced and a bit above the average , I didn't leave this forum unlike other better adapted women, so many secrets are buried in my PM inbox (remains that way), next to information that shouldn't be hidden ;)

Trust me about some things, please.
I think I earned it.

What a lot of polyglots there are here!!!

I joined PF because I figured out that this is the forum for deviants?! ;)

So why does everyone think you're Serbian lol

you think someone is ashamed to be a serb? if i would be a serb and i am proslavic why would i hide that? here on pf with 'my slavic brothers' around? why would i do that.

thats not logical.

btw, nationality is not a title. you cannot choose that. your paranoic brain and that of the others who you call 'everyone' in this matter are too boring. really.

What the f*** are you talking about?

It was a serious question - a lot of people on here think you're a Serb, and I can't understand why they do - but I was starting to think you are too.

It doesn't matter whether you are or not. As long as you don't start abusing Poles, I couldn't care less whether you were Serbian, German, Armenian, Azerbaijani or Korean - it's nothing to with whether it is "shameful" or not.

just answered the way your question/comment came across. thats it.

a lot of people on here think you're a Serb

on what basis? just curious.

I can't understand why they do - but I was starting to think you are too

i am german. pls tell me on what basis/reasons you started to believe that?
btw, tnx for the compliment to be a serb.

As long as you don't start abusing Poles

i like poles a lot. after uni my 1st job brought me numerous times to pl with longer stays due to the job as project eng. there i picked up my polish. ;)

I couldn't care less whether you were Serbian, German, Armenian, Azerbaijani or Korean

exactly.

I've no idea where they get this idea from, but someone has called you Serbian again this evening, lol :)

And?

Is that suppose to disqualify someone as a poster? Should I as a REAL Serb feel bad about the fact? Because whatever some might try to do, I won't.

I noticed the same behavior, particularly from people who were raised by societies who are suppose to be deeply liberal, where ethnic, racial and all kinds of discriminations are not allowed. And harshly punished in reality. Why then this here? Are proclaimed values just superficially there for you, while actually nothing of the taught is interiorized really?

Are your societies asking you to be something you are actually not? Tolerant for example?

Oddly, the right wingers from those societies not counting few who left the forum, didn't have a problem with the label Serb.
Actually those that I have noticed that tend to use maneuver in the quote, tend to brag about their tolerance discussing other topics. And are self proclaimed liberals, pro leftists, human rights promoters. Be coherent. System behind you appears flawed this way. And like an utter failure.

People, make up your mind, you are either tolerant and German is not another name for Casta like brahmins, while Serb is not suppose to denote pariah. Hypocrisy leaks from all the holes this way. Or you are prone to bigotry and that it is OK, then be honest and don't try to present yourself differently. That would be at least from my side respected and understood. Tolerant behavior tends to be easier for some, harder for the others.

So, Bratwurst and Guesswho were honest, use them as role models for non hypocritical and consistent behavior :)

Oh boo hoo whining and moaning as usual, poor serbian we are oh poor us and btw here is a pic of my left nipple, please someone like me...

Jesus in a bumblebee outfit, get over yourself Natasa I did recently explain to you and others in my very rare instance of seriousness that it's not the case of being anti-serbian. I'm just against your and Crow's medieval hostile divisivness a la balkanese which both of you so generously indulge yourselves in here on. And yes I let you and Crow taste your own medicine from time to time which obviously goes way over your blinkered victimhood to notice, so let me try again...

Look, Natasa, look there runs an Albo, quickly shoot , shoot... oh you missed, what a shame.. wait, how about that German he seems slower...?

Italian((I dated girl from Milano)

top model iz Milana? :))

French(bloody French pûrn),little Swedish(guess why).

Blackadder what kind of pûrns did you watch :)), and how come don't I speak French and Swedish fluently then, it must be ADHD, attention was taken from the language course to the background noise? :(((( I always miss the point!

Practice makes perfect ;)

1:1

Similar to you , others tried to persuade me using presentation of their oral abilities and demonstrating benefits of practice and hard work, but I wasn't convinced. (nadam se da nije uvredljivo, ako jeste oprosti) ;)
