  1. I was just curious how many bi+ lingual people we have here at Techspot. I myself speak English (I know English), Spanish (Hablo Español), and a tiny bit of Russian (Я знаю Русский)(I'm literate but I have trouble spelling things, and I know a few phrases). Have a good day :wave: !

    I speak Danish (Jeg taler dansk), English, very little French (Je parle français)
    (and a few lousy lines of German that aren't even enough to say "I speak German" :( )

    Being Danish I don't have a pretty hard time understanding Swedish and Norwegian.

    Edit: If that's how we're doing it then: ActionScript, C, C++, Python, HTML, Command.com/cmd, D (not fluently), Visual Basic (not that I ever use it), GML (lame I know)

    Annoying those non-english characters, aren't they? :)

    Now your just showing off :haha:

    English, well lets face it, its the most widely spoken language in the world, you dont need to speak any other language.

    Oh I also speak child, and drunk, quite well.

    Regards

    As I said in another post, is that really appropriate for the younger users?

    I know enough to get what I want and thats it. I can read and write german a little, its been awhile


    German

    Arab

    Korean

    *****

    The arab is what a learned when I was in Iraq. You know " Stop or I will kill you" or "You cannot marry my wife"

    Korean is just limited to hello, thank you, good bye, one please and I need a cab

    My wife deciphers the ***** for others at times

    Любой здесь говорит на русском языке? :unch:
    Does anyone speak Russian here? :unch:

    If someone does, I need help with memorizing the present tense! I really hope my school offers Russian next year so I'll actually be able to do more that read it and stand dumbfounded over the book while asking my friend to decipher it for me :D

    I love to do that! Sometimes I'll just go and say *something* in either Spanish or Russian. If I'm bored, I write in Russian, and no one knows (except my friends) what I'm saying :D !

    EDIT:
    TimeParadox, I need help with the Russian Present tense! (i.e ya -> u, ti -> esh, on/ona -> aet, etc.)

    The BN LTC needs to see the NCOIC at 1800 in regards to the PFC who received NSF for his DPP. The SFC said that the PFC was FUBAR. Now the PFC is on CQ for 45 of ED.

    Anyone in the military can decipher it easily.
    I can make it harder if you wish

    The AO is located in the new FOB which is near this LSA. BIAP is not the place to be with a LOGPAC. SGM performed an AAR with the NCO on SAETA and OPSEC. Too many LTs are giving away the GPS over unsecured COMSEC.
