I’m polish (native language) so I learnt Russian at home from my parents as they both also speak it. I learnt German and Welsh in school and I live in the UK so that’s how I learnt English

That's pretty good! Russian, French and Mandarin are one of the languages I badly wanna learn . Any advice on how would I could learn newer languages from scratch
(Original post by apricotkanken)
hmmm, i think the easiest way to learn a language is to listen to people speak it and then converse back with them in those languages, but it's obbv hard when ur on ur own. I personally think watching tv shows in that language is a rlly good idea and you could test your vocab on memrise.com
hope this helps
I learned using DuoLingo, and audiobooks you can get from the library definitely check duolingo out

My girlfriend and I learn together though, she taught me German and then after that we learned other languages together. So when we're together we go to a cafe or something have a coffee and just speak in whatever language we're learning, we have a rule we're not allowed to speak English until we get back home.

Native English speaker, primarily northern dialect but I'm frogmarching myself through proper elocution, partly because I want to speak more clearly, but mostly because I'm a stammerer.

Aside from that:
  1. French
  2. German
  3. Latin (primarily Mediæval but some Classical)
  4. Some Greek
  5. Anglo-Saxon
  6. Middle English (does this count?)
  7. Old Norse
  8. Some Hebrew

I also know some of the reconstructed Proto Indo-European language (wrote some dialogue in one of my novels in it, so I had to learn a little), and am slowly working on a fictional language of my own.

I can also understand (but not speak) most Romance languages (yey Latin) and some Dutch and Afrikaans. The other Scandinavian languages (Finnish, Swedish) remain a mystery to me thus far.

I can speak English, Chinese and a tad bit Japanese.

Hajimemashte!
This a common mistake but it drives me batshit. A "tad" is a "little bit". You can have a little bit of something or a tad of it. You don't have a tad bit [of] anything.

Deffinitely you've got a point. I need to find someone who's learning the same language as me so that I can practice it good

thank you! I can speak turkish and uzbek bc of my parents.
What a coincidence, I',m currently studying high school in the Middle East too! and I have a lot of pakistani friends who speak urdu and punjabi too
Best of luck with German and French! French is quite easy so you should be fine. When i tried to learn German, i gave up quickly bc i found it quite challenging and therefore time consuming, but well done to u
I always found french to be much easier than german Shokran! Then we are neighbors lol! Wish you the best too!

I can speak English, a fair bit of French, and apparently enough Welsh to get an A in GCSE short course, which if the exam is anything to go by is about 20 words...

wow 7 languages that's amazing! I can write hindi, and that's similar to sanskrit?
I really wish to learn spanish and who knows even tibetan!
I have a book on Hindi here but I've not spent any real time with it (not had much chance!); lots of similarities in principle with Skt, though, yes! I had to learn Sanskrit and Pali for work - not fluent, but good enough to translate old stuff with a dictionary next to me. I'd like to make more effort with European langauges this year. I'd really like to be high-level Portuguese, so begin to will sort that once work has settled down.

Some French & Spanish but I'd like to be more fluent in them. I'm thinking about learning Japanese at some point as well.
