One doesn't usually speak it. It's too slow that way.

>3 _luh_Baddie_bae: Actually it's not that difficult to learn! Even if it seems impossible now, if you practice with constancy you will learn it also in just a month.

>4 MarthaJeanne: It would be funny if everyone started 'dit-dahing' . It would probably also be confusing and annoying ahah. And yes, very slow.

Tried all my life to learn a second language, and at this point I've decided not to spend any more effort on it. It's a wonderful, eye-opening skill to have, providing insight not simply into communications but into entire cultures that you can then contrast with your own, and better appreciate how different cultures view the world in different ways.

Edit: reading non-English novels in their original language would be no small bonus, too.

I know English and eleven dead programming languages. That's it. Took Spanish 1 twice in high school, ended up with a C as a final average. I tried, but it never quite worked for me.
My father though - a true polyglot. He picked up languages as easily as I pick up my coffee mug. English (pre- and post-Chaucer,) ancient and modern Greek, Latin, Spanish, French, old and new German, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese, three distinct dialects of Inuit, and for the life of me, I can't think what else.
