    I find people who learn a language to GCSE/AS standard and call it fluency and then talk down to people who are actually fluent (or aiming for it) a bit annoying to be frank.

    It's hardly attractive. Impressive yes but attractive it is not. That's like saying "Do you find it attractive that I look at trees"

    I'd call you a liar and ask you to stop promoting your shoddy website on our forum.
    It's a pretty good website. I doubt the person who wrote the website writes these posts. Could be wrong, of course.

    Learning Languages =/= Clever

    Yes, clever linguistically, but in any other sense? Nope.

    I wouldn't be attracted I'd think 'boring geek!'. Sure there are super clever people out there who spend all their time studying but I have no interest in them. A girl who spoke 16 languages probably would be a real drag to hang out with.

    Enter flavour of the month trolling. If you're going to do it, don't bother making a stupid ass account. Just do it on your normal one.

    It's a well designed website, but it's just like all the other "get rich quick", "lose weight fast" e-book-selling sites. The video is a slick bit of marketing, but anyone can learn a script, however many languages it's in; it proves nothing about the efficacy of the product he's flogging. He's a slick marketeer and I wish him well, but he's not offering an innovative system or even a rigorous methodology. He's trying to shift a product, and at that he'll probably do well -- even without using TSR as free advertising.

    I would think he had no home, and no place to call home. Languages are a means to communication, so learning sixteen of them, so you could talk about 15 of them in one, seems pointless.

    If they seem to have a normal life and it just comes out that they happen to speak 16 languages, then I think that'd be amazing and quite attractive...only thing is I can't picture them NOT being a geek having learnt so many. I think three to six is super hot (and I mean one language per country not six sub-languages from one)

    Ok, for the sake of this thread, let's say the person was fully fluent in English, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Hindi/Urdu, Persian/Farsi, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Portugese, French and Esperanto.

    I'm not asking people whether this is possible, nor is this about me currently, so don't reply with those comments....I'm just curious as to whether you'd find a person who could speak all those languages fully fluently attractive or not?
