    Back to the topic....ahem

    Besides English, I speak, read, and write Cantonese (the right version) and I can understand a bit of Mandarin. I can also read a good bit of that awful invention called "Simplified Chinese" used in the mainland.

    Besides Dutch, I'm fluent in English and am understandable in German. I know a bit of French too, but not enough to do more than ask the most basic questions or understand the most basic sentences. I'm going to improve my German and after that work on French. I used to hate foreign languages other than English, but have come to like the idea of being fluent in more than two languages.

    I like to travel, and I've been in troublesome situations (one where a friend and me were on the verge of getting arrested and sleeping in a cell for the night) that could easily have been solved or avoided if I were either fluent in the local language or if the other party had been fluent in English.
    Having lived in three countries, I can't imagine living in a country of which you don't speak the language. While most people in the western world speak at least a bit of english there is still a fine line between being understood or not. Communication is a very important thing.

    Would like to learn German, Afrikaans and French in my lifetime [​IMG]

    Why not start with Dutch? After that, Afrikaans should be like a walk in the park. [​IMG]
