I'm learning Russian 'cause its fun.

I just think it's more fun than english, simply because its harder to pronouce than engish.

It also feels prettier than english when I speak it.


I know what you mean sometimes it just sounds so darn cool.......

My point was that it's completely possible to learn so many languages. I think if you put time and effort into it, you can become fluent in as many as you like. :)

Of course, it helps to have a job that puts those into use

I believe that Vladimir Putin (former president of the Russian Federation) knows about 6 languages or 4. I don't remember.
Oh, and don't even mention some of the Popes, they know lots of languages!

DISCUSSION QUESTION
What Pig-Latin rules do you guys abide by?

I've always done it by splitting the word before the first vowel, moving that first block of consonants to the end, and then adding ay, with the exception of words which begin with a vowel, in which case the second vowel is used. Words like "and" and "at" which begin with a vowel and have only one remain unchanged.

FOR EXAMPLE
Scramble ... Amblescray
Attack ... Ackattay
Arm ... Arm


Apparently, though, some people operate under the rule "First letter moves to end and ay is added." While simpler, this produces some awkward results.

Scramble ... Cramblesay
Attack ... Ttackaay
Arm ... Rmaay

SO am I the only one using my ruleset?

Post Re: Languages
well I always did it as the first phoneme (group of letters that have a specific sound such as "sh" and "ch" and "sc") goes to the end and add ay, while words that start with vowels just get "yay" added to the end.
EX:
Scram => amscray
attack => attackyay
a => ayay

then again, I rarely actually speak pig Latin.

Spanish is pretty easy to learn, just remember that adjectives can go before or after the noun depending o. The context.

Post Re: Languages
I'm fairly sure that Spanish is one of, if not the, easiest language for English speakers to learn because of the relatively similar pronunciations and the amount of cognates. And, for Americans at least, the amount of exposure to it relative to other languages.

Or maybe it's for completely different reasons I'm not a linguist.

Spanish is also a lot more logical than English.

Lose the 'merican accent when speaking Spanish. In Spanish speaking countries, they don't care how fluent you are, they will point and laugh if you sound American.
