Ha! Fantastic. You seem to have accidentally included English on your list of languages to avoid.

I wish i learnt French instead of German (its more likely that i will go to France rather than Germany) but we had no choice at school.

Spanish is a great language to take if you want to get into business or travel anywhere, or in general, really. My younger sister is at Spanish immersion camp right now. If she succeeds there, she'll probably be able to get a job quite easily.

You retard. You put English on your list on languages to avoid.

JESUS PLEASE COME SOON!
As someone who learned to speak some french in school and has a good job, I say FUCK YOU.

Yet many children in other countries learn to be bilingual or even trilingual with no problems. Why is it so horrible for American children to learn more than one language? If you're going to compete in a global economy, learning other languages is essential. And often, it's just plain good manners.

France would like to have a word with you....

"Unless you want an unskilled job with unskilled people, I'd highly recommend that Spanish and French and a few pther languages be avoided at all costs"
Yes, being multilingual is such a turn off to potential employers...

The best part of this posting was omitted. At the end, it was asserted that Latin is of more benefit than French or German.

The Borg are here?

Learning Latin is probably quite valuable, especially if you want to work in Latin America (thank you, Mr. Dole).

I dropped out of Spanish when I was in school....
Now I'm ashamed to have something in common with....this person.

I took Latin and French at school (more years ago than I care to remember), and actually found the Latin useful: it provided an 'in' to a rough understanding of Spanish and Italian, even though I never learned them and can only speak a few (tourist) words of both.
My son has taken French, German and Spanish at school, and got on well with all three, although at the moment he's concentrating on the German.
And I too would have loved to have learned Japanese! I can understand the odd word here and there, but just don't have the time to sit down and learn it properly...

I guess because its sort of obvious, and a bit pointless and pedantic to comment on "ASSIMULATE(sic)" + "LEARN ENGLISH".
But, fuck! Both my next door neighbors are spanish and they speak better english than you!

This is going to end up on one of these sites, but oh well.
After America gets blown up (Which will eventually happened, every great civilisation falls), you're all going to have to learn Chinese or something like that because they'll be the new super power and then Chinese are going to complain about how stupid english people can't speak chinese and then you'll be really screwed.
By the way, feel free to come to Australia if you're American, we've got room and you know its imminent that somebody is going to screw you guys over some day.

And the most important.................don't speak English properly.
7/31/2008 4:01:05 PM
how about you learn learn english?
8/1/2008 3:06:10 AM
Learning a new language means more potential customers. And that leads to more money. But you're too stupid to understand that.
8/1/2008 8:07:52 PM
I don't see the problem with learning other languages.
I am learning German and Spanish.
I like German better, though. More English-like. Probably because English is a "Germanic" language.
