    Find a babelfish perhaps?

    But seriously, I need to learn a language other than English. I'm part Cantonese as well so that doesn't make it any better when I go to see my dad's side of the family and I can't understand a word of what they're saying

    :sexface:
    I can empathise on the language front. I should be able to speak Urdu and Punjabi. I can't. And I sound terrible when I try. If you find a babelfish, send one my way please

    Ah, that's a good idea :sexface:. Haha I know exactly how you feel, both my parents are from India and I literally have no idea what anyone's saying when we go to family gatherings! It's so bad and I should really know the language, but I was never brought up with it.
    Neither was I, though my dad tried to give me and my brothers lessons. They were a miserable failure but I wouldn't mind trying again some time in the future.

    My parents actually said there wasn't much point in teaching me when I was younger, but I would quite like to learn some now - I guess I wasn't bothered about it before because I speak English all the time. I've picked up some phrases and words but I couldn't hold a conversation with someone beyond "Hello, how are you?" :lol:

    This, so much. I've also learnt "Thank you" for Chinese New Year, 1-20 and "my name is...." so not exactly the best repotia for living in Hong Kong (if I ever went for more than 2 weeks) :lol: :parrot:

    Also, as part Cantonese, I was very pleased to see the Hong Kong cyclist get a bronze medal.

    Hahaha, it's nice to know that someone feels the same way as me! I've been to India for a month before about 3 years ago and it was so difficult. My mum's side of the family all speak English but I felt bad for making them speak it. You do pick up bits and pieces when you're out there though, so maybe I should just stay there for a few months!

    Are they minstrels but without the crispy bit? I always used to bite the shell off, wait for them to dry out and then eat just the chocolate :lol:

    Not a bad idea, perhaps I should spend some time abroad as part of my degree in Hong Kong...
