    That was the point. In the previous Guess the Language quiz I did, people noted that they believe people were cheating. To be completely sincere, I myself believe that people cheated on it. :sad: I do not like and condone cheating and the first Guess the Language quiz was supposed to be in this format too, but I did not know how to get the clips then, so I merely rolled with it and did it like this today. :moon:

    Thank you! :hugs:

    Trust me, I was FAR from efficient with the timings. Just wait for the commentary and you will see how bad my time management with this quiz was. :getmecoat:

    Thank you for participating in the Guess the Language 2 quiz! :girl: I hope that at least some of you enjoyed it to an extent. :blushing:

    I would like to note that this quiz has been the most challenging one out of all the quizzes I have done so far. Why, you may ask?

    Because I posted it before I finished it! :zomg:

    Yes, that is right. You may have noticed this quiz was extremely late and that I posted the next language late a few times (more like all the time). That is because I was thinking of what languages to use, looking up videos, selecting videos, downloading videos, cropping videos, and uploading the clips on Vocaroo while doing the quiz. I have had a few very busy days and finished my courses at 8 PM today, so I did not complete the quiz before I posted it like I did with my past quizzes. When I started the quiz, I only had around half of the samples prepared and had yet to think of three languages to use. :afraid: The quiz was supposed to begin at 9:30 PM, but I had to learn how to do all of the things listed above, hence the delay. :sad: I only managed to finish concocting the quiz around language 6. :ashamed:

    Do not ask how I managed to do it in the end. I do not know either! :ahee:

    Confession: I laugh a little whenever posts Romanian as their guess for a language they do not recognise. :mmm:

    Without further ado, here are the answers! :teeth:

    Language 1: German
    The German anthem for you all. Most of you guessed it was German even if you did not understand the words. :laugh:

    Language 2: Chinese
    Another easy and obvious one. :yes:

    Language 3: Arabic
    As this was only question 3, of course I was going to throw another simple one at you. :giggle:

    Language 4: Italian
    Language 4 was supposed to be Hindi, but I could not tell if the sample I had was truly Hindi or just terrible English, so I scrapped it and opted for another 'easy' language. :hide:

    I did not foresee this language's trickiness. :lolwut: I guess its similarity to Spanish made it more difficult.

    The number of people who got it right decreased in comparison to the previous questions, but a considerable number of people still answered correctly.

    Language 5: Finnish
    I apologise for the very low volume of the sample! It sounded alright on my laptop, but I see that was not the case for everyone. :sad:

    Nevertheless, some people managed to get it right! :gasp:

    Shout-out to faloodeh for her funny answer. :rofl:

    Language 6: Hebrew
    Shout-out to Notnek for being the first one to get it right, thus revealing his secret knowledge of this language! :clap2:

    Language 7: Korean
    I suppose I posted this one very quickly, given how many people replied ‘Korean’ during language 8. :laugh:

    Language 8: Ukrainian
    No, it is not Russian! :toofunny: They may use the same alphabet and sound similar, but they are still different languages. :naughty:

    Congratulations to greengiraffe for being the only person who guessed it! :woo:

    Language 9: Hindi
    An unexpectedly easy one for you lovelies. :clap2: And by unexpected, I mean that this was supposed to be Thai and I did not figure out it was Hindi until after people posted their answer. :ashamed2: I got the song from a short Thai film, but later research confirmed this was Hindi. Well done! :congrats:

    Shout-out to y.u.mad.bro? for even naming the film the song was originally from! :crown:

    Language 10: Malayalam
    The number of correct answers was zero, just as I expected. :lol:

    :rofl: to TeenPolyglot for his hilarious guess! :toofunny:

    Thus, tonight's quiz has come to an end. See you tomorrow! :hello:
