German doesn't sound like that at all. That stereotype is really unfounded. I think a lot of people get German mixed up with Dutch or some of the Nordic languages as it doesn't sound that rough.

I much prefer hearing a girl speaking German than Spanish or Italian. A lot of Spanish girls speak nasally, like they've got a bunged up nose.

Yeah, I know both cantonese and mandarin but my english is miles better. I'm sure there is so much more that I should have learnt.

I would also want to learn Spanish, I learnt a bit while on holiday in Malaga.

Of course noone speaks it :rolleyes: Except maybe Catholic priests in very old-fasioned church services and even then, I bet they don't understand that much latin anyway... I was in a weird situation in Menorca once. Some Spanish guy and some Greek guy chose to communicate in latin. At the time, I didn't know any latin but they seemed to get by.

I must say that for English speakers, it's less interesting to learn latin than if French, Spanish or Italian are your mother tongues. But if you want to learn a latin language, it helps a lot. It's quite incredible how many very complex words you'd never understand without latin, you'll end up understanding.

To understand some grammatical rules in latin languages, it's quite useful too.

It used to be compulsary for anyone learning medicine to know latin since a lot of latin terms are used.
I was pretty sure nobody spoke it, I just wasn't 100% and thought it was best to ask as opposed to assuming nobody spoke it and being wrong! :p:

Thanks for explaining how it can be used too

Sanskrit, Hebrew, Russian, Maori...Homeric Greek, because it's so beautiful. I'd like to learn Italian properly (currently my Italian comes entirely from Dante and Mozart).
There's a chap in Finland who broadcasts radio in Latin, on the basis that more people understand Latin than do Finnish. I also think Latin ought to be the official language of the E.U..
