The following languages I'd like to learn, in approximate order:

1: Spanish, mainly because I already know some Spanish, and it's probably one of the easiest languages to learn for an English-speaker.

2: German

3: Japanese, because I love Japanese culture so much, especially anime. I list it third because Japanese is a COMPLETELY different language from English, very difficult for us to learn but it seems challenging and I love to tackle challenges:)

What is your primary language? What are the second and third languages do you want to learn? My primary language is English, and I'd like to learn how to speak Spanish and Japanese.
I speak spanish and english. I guess my 3rd language would be Mandarin as the chinese seem to be everywhere
1. My primary language is English however being a 100% born and raised Black Noo Yawka my second and third fluent languages are Spanglish "Noo Yawk Rican" and Haitian "Patois". A lot of uninformed and misinformed Americans both Black, Latin and White are led to believe by certain individuals that Haitian Patois is Creole which is a bold face lie and a sin before GOD Almighty himself.

2. I am now preparing to learn ASL, BASL and SSL.

America's educational system is flushing itself right down the drain. This destructive and more so planned failure was brought to light when Rachel Jeantel testified in court that she couldn't read cursive. The racist pundits had a virtual feeding frenzy until The Miami-Dade County School Administration admitted that cursive was completely dropped from their curriculum. **** shame.

Many A-List notable Blacks bought her thousands of dollars worth of clothing and the accoutrements she could never afford with plenty of photo ops praising themselves as caring for her, however be that as it may the only celebrity that considered Rachel Jeantel worthy of an almost impossible dream of ever being accepted to any college due to her inability to read or write in cursive or the lack of funds promised her a full scholarship to the college of her choice.

Neuroscientists have posit that a manual means of communication in whatever of it's multi-form it takes is important for a full development in the potential of any individual human. Further they say that like the verbal language skills there is a window in the early growth stage where it is of the most benefit.

Some of the first human communication via print:

As to writing I always wanted to be able to paint with words and I was rather shocked when during one of those late night (or perhaps early morning) tipsy bull sessions with friends I let it out and found I was the only sole there that ever even thought about it. I thought everyone aspired to be a writer!

The only time I actually derived any pleasure with pen and paper was writing love letters to my girlfriends in elementary school. I eventually detested writing when I had to commit to it at work.

BTW Brother ogoun your article almost made my head explode. That's on the "DEEP" end of the pool. That intense thought provoking image kinda reminded me of this little number.
