    The only foreign language I can speak is Russian. I tried learning French, Spanish, Latin, & even German at one point (fun fact abut that last one below), but I had different issues with each of those language and stopped learning them.

    Fun fact: my username is actually in German; it means twilight, although another member pointed out that my username is very appropriate for this forum since a variant of "zwielicht" in German is "zwielichtig", which means shady. Of course, I'm not actually a shady person. :cool:

    I would say it took me about 4 years while learning it on and off. I still don't speak it fluently, but my issue is more about a lack of vocabulary rather than grammar, pronunciation, etcetera.

    I used a multitude of resources including the following:
    • Books
    • Websites dedicated to the language
    • Apps
    • Russian-To-English translation functions
    • Duolingo (their Russian course just came out, but I use it more as "practice" as it's fairly easy for me)
    • People (talking to others who speak Russian)

    Only English, when I go abroad I just raise my voice and point.
    Never failed yet, except the time I ordered an Escort and a Lady-Boy turned up, but as they say, When in Rome ...

    English is not foreign, it is the universal language. Even E.T speaks English.
