Believe me, you don't need to learn Portuguese to chase the beautiful Brazilian babes...

My sister is dating a Norwegian right now. The problem is that he doesn't know a word in Portuguese, whereas she knows nothing about Norwegian. He has a very poor command of English, and so does she (actually, she used to hate English, only now she's concerned about learning it!!!). But, believe, they're doing fine...

I guess that when one is able to use his/her tongue properly, nothing else matters... Wink

Besides Chinese and English, I don't like any language!

English is charming, I've got infatuated with it for 3 years since I started picking it up!

I've upgraded my computer for english-learning; and I've bought plenty of digital stuff for english-learning such like MP3, CDs, and something like English-listening taps, books, cards....No wonder those rats in my house would take a bite on my english books! it turned out that they(those rats) love english too!! Mr. Green

I heard that when english-speakers "do stuff" in bed, they normally maon:"Yeah! My God!" Maybe those rats in my house are shouting out the same english words when they "reproduce" their offsprings.

In this respect, we can call those rats "English-speakers" too. No offense, I am just giving the idea how much my rats love english! as much as I do!!

I agree with you. Russian sounds great... I had a boyfriend who had lived for a long time in Russia (from 1969 to 1984). He spoke Russian like a native speaker. Sometimes, he would sing songs in Russian to me... it was great listening to him singing.

I'm Japanese college student.
I'd like to learn Spanish now because its grammar is similar to that of English.I think it's easier to learn Spanish than Chinese.
I'm studying Chinese at college.It's fun but difficult to learn KANJI or
pronunciation.On the other hand,pronunciation of Spanish is easy to speak so I'm interested in Spanish very much!!
