    I could teach you German.
    Are you Irish? Your username reminds me of cecelia ahern, I love her books so much by the way. I know way off topic but still
    I'm actually trying to learn German as well it would be convenient
    No I'm not Irish I'm actually a BBC so I know Chinese when I was brought up
    My Username is actually a Japanese film name Casshern I just thought it was a cool name so adopted it ever since.

    I love romance languages but I already speak most of them to a decent level so I think I'd have to say Arabic but even within Arabic it's not like you can necessarily communicate with everyone from the arab world when you consider all the different dialects.

    Polish
    I read that as Polish, i.e, to make something shiny.

    If I'm honest, it seemed like an odd choice, given the context of the question, but my brain knows not what it's doing at this time.

    Anyway, I'd probably go with Chinese.

    I know everyone's saying Chinese is the future, but India's a close second. If you've got Hindi you've essentially got Urdu as well. It's like a linguistic 'buy one get one free'.

    Spanish, firstly because I love the sound of it and secondly because it would come in so useful in Central and South America as well as Spain. It's physically impossible for me to roll my 'r's though, so I know I could never sound like a native.

    Although it would be very impractical, I'd love to be able to speak Cornish and Manx fluently. I'd have practically nobody to speak it with though. But I think it would be lovely to be able to read the old Cornish mystery plays in Cornish, and Manx-language books.

    Not sure what computer/laptop you've got, but if you've got a macbook alt (well not alt, but the alt button) +c = ç :ahee:

    Plus alt + e + vowel of your choice =á é í ó ú
    alt + ^ + voyc = ô etc.
    alt + ` + voyc = à etc.
    I don't have a mac, but I have set up my keyboard to have dual language keys. You just prompted me to stop being lazy and find out which one was the ç. Evidently I found it

    bonne chance , et n'oublie pas de rouler le "r" en parlant !
    Merci! Alors, quelquefois le 'r roulé' c'ést facile, et quelque jours c'ést impossible. Peut etre c'est determiné par le temps? Ou l'alignement sur Jupiter? Je sais pas.

    Maori.

    I'm already fluent in one ancestral language (Irish, which was also my first language), so I'd like to be fluent in this language as well
