I think people shouting Chinese is very intimidating. I feel like I'm going to be sent to medical school.

I prefer the language of inflicting pain as a means of communication.

Well, possibly meaning the reaction of people after receiving various varieties of blows and pricks on their body; often with sharp ends of force purposefully interpreted to achieve a state in which the reaction, in speaking, is of a higher quality being interpreted as a lexicon to enhance the power of words.

Drakow, care to teach me? I've always wanted to be trilingual. =D

Chinese rants are sorta scary, but I'd say German is a lot worse. Probably cause I've never had to experience it haha.

Ooh, German rants are the best. Take this from a person who had the pleasure of being related a kind-hearted but very stern and ruthless German grandfather, one who thought nothing of ranting foul mouthed German words when he thought the kids weren't around. Obviously we were, but we kept that to ourselves, lol.
He was the sort of guy who you wouldn't have wanted to mess with even though he was in his mid eighties, lol. Fought in WWII (for the Germans by the way, but was 'coerced' into it by Nazi troops, threatening to shoot him + his wife if he didn't fight for Germany, according to my grandmother), came back with scars and what not, lifelong smoker, a hard drinker, your typical example of the no-nonsense Deutschländer.

What? Censor bypass? No way I can stand for that. Hehe ;D

My school had a German course, but apparently it's only offered every three years, which is weird. Something around the lines of it being too difficult. So best of luck if you do decide to take it!

And oh god, Russian. I hear it's quite the interesting language.

I really love spoken German. It's one of my favourite languages and I think when men speak in German it's pretty sexy >:3

Well basically there are people in this world who just cannot be reasoned with. So when that happens I let my fists do the talking and communicate with pain! Or sometimes people need a bit of pain to snap back to their senses so I shake them the **** up lol



My weapon of choice!

There's a cool app for learning languages called Duolingo for both iOS and Android. I used/am using it to get my feet wet in German. You can use it to learn French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, too. Just no Russian.

My limited German doesn't sound very manly. It sounds kinda effeminate. But I still want to learn it, I'm kinda a Germanophile.

Sometimes I wish I was bilingual, or even multilingual.. but unfortunately English is my language, and nothing else.

I'm trying to be multi-lingual. Usually I need to have words read out quite slow for me to understand, then I have to repeat them x amount of times so the words actually stick in.

If I ever had kids I'd really try to get them to learn a second language when they'd be young and it's easiest for their brains.

It's the best way to learn them, when they are very young. I did French when I was 13, but I'd forgotten most of it. If I had did it much younger (and actually got to use the language a lot) then maybe it would have stuck in. I am gonna teach my young second cousin some basic Spanish/French, if there is ever a time that we (as a family) go to Spain or France.

That's exactly what my mom did, and her mother as well. My mom speaks 7 languages, and I speak 4, mainly because of that multilingual household.
