No! That's awful :P How come you're verbally fluent? Are you Chinese? Or half-breed Chink like me? Anyway goes like this:

'Ni hui jiang zhong wen? Haha wo hai hao' - 'tis the way methinks

tut tut tut

(then again to be fair i'm not verbally fluent like you.. I can only speak basics - my English is far better)
oh right...NOW i get it!!

My mom is Chinese; my dad's American.

But hey I don't usually type out Chinese...I can speak it fluently, but I don't diddle daddle about trying to type it out in English characters.
Ah yes well, us half-breeds (or mongrels if you like) are widely renowned to be the best-looking creatures to grace this planet with our (almost divine) presence anyway

I have already started to learn Polish and I want to continue in London.

Might take it as part of my degree as well.

I wish I could learn all the languages of the world.

More realistically, I'd like to...

Improve my French from GCSE/AS Level
Not forget GCSE Latin
Improve my first language, Chinese
Learn Korean
Not to have forgotten Spanish

I speak Cantonese and English fluently, but right now I'm trying to learn Korean. I guess I want to learn it is because in some ways it is similar to Mandarin/Cantonese yet writing is so much more difficult. For example 안녕하세요 means hello and took me like 5 minutes(exaggerating) to write out.

Why the Latin? I learnt it for a while but quite recently realised that it is a complete waste of time unless you're doing both Latin and Greek together and want to do Classics at uni and move onto Politics - otherwise just a waste and useless.. unless I suppose you are really really interested in the Romans

That's just ridiculous - what a silly language - just stick to Chinese!

To be honest Korean is a lot simpler to read than Chinese, I just started learning like 2 weeks ago and a lot of words are a lot easier to recognise as they use an alphabet.
