The Art of Conversation (and the love of Language)
I love languages and would love to conquer (acquire) all the romance languages (and a few more)…
1. Portuguese- I took one semester of Portuguese in college (while in Argentina…so I was learning Portuguese in Spanish, which I wouldn’t recommend….too much for the brain). I loved it and can understand it but can’t speak it so well.
2. Italian- My best friend is fluent in Italian and I think I can understand about 60% (maybe a little bit more). So we can have conversations in Spanish and Italian…it’s a fun brain exercise. And Italian is such a beautiful language…I would love to learn it formally.
3. Romanian- One of the five romance languages (the one that everyone forgets) that I’ve heard a few times and find very interesting.
4. French- I’d like to learn it because it is a romance language, but it’s not my top choice….sorry if I offend anyone, but I think French has too many letters that you don’t pronounce.
I’d also like to refresh my German and maybe learn some Czech
If you haven’t noticed, I love languages–learning them opens so many doors and it expands creativity and expression!
