... other than English, in an instant with no effort, what would they be? For the sake of argument, let's say no fictional languages except for Klingon, because there are people who do speak that.

For me, they'd be Biblical Hebrew, Ancient Greek, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, and Russian.

I already studied Russian, though I don't remember much.

I'd probaby go with Spanish, French, German, Farsi and Japanese.

Chinese, Arabic, a Turkmen-based language, whatever they speak in Indonesia and Malaysia.

Then I'd go join the CIA.

Please no one say Klingon. Consider this as a pre-emptive anti-klingon thingie.

Wow. Lots of people here want to learn Hebrew. In-ter-es-ting.

I can fumble through a few, but I'm not fluent in any so:

Spanish, French, Russian, Mandarin and Farsi.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 6:42:04 AM EDT
Farsi, arabic, pashtu, and whatever other heathen language our enemies speak. I'd also like to be 20 years younger and be able to put it to use.

American.

Oh wait I already speak that. So I guess I will have to pass on the opportunity to speak any other languages, because anyone worth talking to already speaks my language.

Russian
Japanese

These are the ones with different
alphabets, and thus, are much more
difficult for english speakers to
learn.

I can learn the Euro languages (GER,
FRA, ESP) on my own.

Japanese, Latin, Scots Gaelic, Spanish, probably Mandarin. Japanese and Mandarin would help me in my martial arts studies. Latin is the scholars language (at least in the west). Scot's Gaelic is ancestral, Spainish is growing more and more practical, and while I'm none too happy about it, I believe it will be increasingly necessary to know and understand it. I took German and French in High School and College, but the Germans and French can go bugger themselves with a cattle prod...at least until they see reason.

Some of the most important other than English languages these days. Japanese may need to be changed out with Chinese.

English is sufficient! If the rest of the world can't learn English why should we bother to learn their gibberish?

So that when you're killing them you can understand and laugh at their pleas for mercy and reply in the appropriate tongue. Why else?

In French… baiseur de mère de matrice

In Chinese… ??????

In German… Würfelmutterbumser

In Spanish… fucker de la madre del dado

I think that covers all the bases and potential enemies…
