   Learning Spanish, Italian and french since 2002 but stopped for 3 years but now self studying again.

   Talking Italian to my Italian client and Spanish to my friend from Mexico.  I speak slow
   and still taking some time to understand what they say though.

   French has no difference

   from learning any other languages. Same with the 2 said above and we all know that, it is the accent

   parlare in italiano
   hablar en espa˝ol

   parler en franšais

   makipag-usap sa Filipino

  Hopefully Korean too since my mother lived in Korea for 10 lonnngggg years.
  It would be a free lesson with the accent  harhar  :-D

Mommy EARTH!?!?!?!?!!!!! IMISSYOU!

BTT: Just finished Level 8 Spanish sa Instituto Cervantes de Manila. I need a ka-chika!

I want to learn Korean though because of Lee Min Ho.  :-D

I'm planning to enrol in Ateneo for Chinese Language course, but have to wait for the next opening.

I also got to learn basic Japanese because me and my friends watched a bunch of anime since HS.

malaking factor dito na dapat may nakakausap ka, or else makakalimutan mo rin.

when i was in africa, natuto ako mag arabic (basic), yung tamang usap lang.
sa head office naman dahil puro hapon, so nakakaintindi ng basic lang din na nihonggo.
ngayon na assign ako malaysia, 3 months palang pero puro about sa pagkain palang natututunan ko sa bahasa.
try mo kayang kalabitin baka tumunog...

hmmm... so far, i know english, tagalog, spanish, ibanag, and a little ilocano.

i tried learning italian before. very similar siya sa spanish so madali kaso wala naman akong kilalang marunong mag-italian so hindi ko rin mapractice. that's the biggest piece to the learning-a-new-language puzzle.

i also tried learning french but all i ended up learning was how to speak english with a french accent.  :-D

I've always wanted to learn Nihonggo, Espa˝ol and French.

I know a few words in Japanese. Some of the basic ones. My girlfriend is currently enrolled in a Japanese learning center and when she's studying at home, nakikibasa ako. So I tend to remember some Hirigana and Katakana. Kanji is no joke though. They're very hard to remember and very confusing. I really wanna enroll myself as well dun sa school ng girlfriend ko but as of now, not on my list of priorities.
Maybe next time, since my girlfriend and I are planning to live in Japan some time in the future. :D

As for Spanish, I tried to self study back when I was 18. It's easier because some of the words are familiar to a Filipino ear since a lot of our commonly used words are originally Spanish. Some of the English words are quite similar to Spanish words as well. Although I have stopped my studying after quite some time. I would love to start learning again though.

French. Oh my. I love French films. Man, I'm a big fan of French films. I've always been curious about their language as well. It's not easy to speak and read french. I have known some French phrases through the movies but that's all. Man, if I were given a chance when I was a kid, I'd definitely study French. Sarap sa tenga e. Haha. It sucks na sa school ko wala man lang ni isang foreign language na subject. :(

I tried French and it was really hard. at first you will really sound TH. Hahahaha! I got through the basics, although I did not know what happened. I don't remember a thing.

I Also want to learn Japanese, because I read and watch a lot of Manga. I don't know why,  but I never really learned while watching  :razz:
