Hi Miska,
That is seriously impressive. Is there any particular reason you chose to learn those languages?

In slovak schools students have the duty to learn 2 foreign languages (you can choose english and deutsch or english and french, for example)..

I am learning italian for one simple reason-because i love Italy, love their people, their culture and everything connected with Italy

And hungarian?- Parents of my mother are hungarians (that's very typical for south Slovakia that a lot of people speak hungarian because hungarians are our neighbours)

I'm able to communicate pretty much fluently in English, Spanish, French and if people speak very slowly and with a clear accent I'd be able to understand Italian and Dutch.
Would really love to learn one of the Scandinavian languages or greek. Might do a crash course in Greece in summer

Hi Travel100, hi Lucy55
Can I disturb your dialogue?

I am trying to speak english, deutsch (german language), italian, hungarian and understand almost all of the slavic languages (czech,polish, slovenish...)

Miska

Wow that's amazing, to understand so many languages. I assume Slovakian is your native language. What language is the easiest to understand for a Slovakian? Czech?

When you say you have to learn 2 languages in school. Does English have to be one of the two?

I have been learning Spanish for the last year so..

"puedo hablar un poquito del espanol"

I can speak it ok but I am generally better at reading or writing...I want to go to spain to study an intensive course but this won't happen until after I return from my RTW trip in 2006.

I studied French at school so I can still remember a little bit of that too!

Hasta llego

I speak English, Icelandic and Danish and can make myself understood in French and Spanish. I have also taken a course in sign language so I can "speak" and understand a bit of that.

P.s.
I understand German but cannot speak a word of it.

Angela,

Is Icelandic similar to Danish (or does Danish require seperate effort to learn)?

Do you have to learn English in High School in Iceland?
