Well i'm really lucky, because my mom's from Spain and my dad from Italy, so i learned both those languages really soon. And since i live in Germany, of course i have to know german. Italian, spanish and french are pretty similar though, so it was easier for me to learn them all.
Aw that sucks, why doesn't the government want you to use those other 2 languages?
While English is used as the main language for all official use, Malay is actually the official language of Singapore because the Malays are the native people there, while the Chinese and Indians are just immigrants that come to stay here.
