I really like the "Japanese" language alot. I speak a little, just good enough to greet, order food, give a compliment, say good-bye, sorry, excuse me and where's the restroom? (very important) This is delicious...simple stuff like that.

If you can speak Spanish, you'll speak great Japanese cuz the vocalizing is similar.

well its hard for me to learn nahuatl cuz i'm on my own. plus, it's a very diferent language from any european language ( english, spanish, french ... ) so yeah to me it's kinda hard but it's just me u know.

i've been learning for about a month thanks to a book i downloaded and i can barely make a sentence. plus, it's hard to get some audio to check the pronunciation.

I would like to learn Korean, it sounds so.. poetic when they're rapping and singing and stuff. OH yeah, I listen to a lot of Korean music, or K-Pop as they call it =P I know A LOT of Korean, I can almost speak it to another person. I know more Korean than Spanish. Sorry, I don't know much Spanish After taking Spanish at school, I think I'm going to take Korean.

Besides Korean, I'd like to learn Japanese. ^.^ It sounds so interesting. All of my friends are azn, so they have a big impact on me. They teach me Hmong, Korean, Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese), Laos, and Japanese. My friends are tight azn homies

Polish (to help the Polacos in the Mexican hoods who don't speak English or Spanish)
Nahuatl (just because)
Gaelic (meh Why Not?)
Latin (it seems real cool, and it makes you sound smart )

I would like to lear Nahuatl because it's the mother tongue. Chinese (either Mandarin or Cantonese, better yet) because I love Chinese cinema and I would like to watch the films without subtitles. Hebrew to read the Torah in it's orginal language, Arabic to read the Qur'an in its original language, and Greek to read the new testament in its original language Latin will work too for the purpose of reading the new testament. I would also learn to speak the Chumash language not a lot of people speak it anymore and I think that it is important to keep languages alive.
