Anybody else know any Lithuanian?

If you get the chance, and you ever want to see where supermodels are designed and built, that's the place. Never have I seen so many astonishingly beautiful 6+' tall women in my life. This alone should be enough to motivate single hetero males to learn the language...

Laba diena, brolis ir seseri!

Ain't it though! I know Toronto has a sizable Lithuanian community - are you in that group, or do you just like statuesque women?;)

I am one of the ESL (english as a second language) American kids. My parents are from Colombia consequently I speak Spanish and English.

Having a girlfriend from the Azores, Portugal, I added Portuguese to the list.

I tried French and failed due to paying more attention to the teacher than the book and her teachings.:rolleyes:

Home language is Afrikaans (almost like Dutch) but fluent in English. Curently learning French for my trip to France next year.

Me too...

And since marrying a Portuguese girl, I'm learning Portuguese.

Must say, I speak (and spell) better English than any pommy I've come across - spelling seems to be a dying art, especially amongst expat. Englishmen.... :)

Because this is an international forum, and because some of us dream of going to do road or MTB biking in another foreing country, I want to ask you if some of you speak more than one language.

My mother tongue is spanish, I write and speak english (I think so ;) ) and now I'm learning french and I think I'm doing pretty good. In the future I want to learn Italian..... or maybe German.

Well, let's hear your answers

English, can understand some Spanish but not too good at speaking it. And recently I decided to learn Italian after meeting a guy last week in Florence who spoke no English, so we had to use a translator ;)

Is Maltese a specific language or a dialect of another, more well-known language?
