December 9th, 2007, 11:35 AM
Seeing as the last thread died in August and now thread of relations to this topic were posted in the last month, I decided to revive it. If I happened to miss that thread, mods feel free to lock this.

On-topic: No, my native language is Vietnamese.

Yes my native language is english, which is quite helpful because i'm british


December 9th, 2007, 11:39 AM
My native language is English~

I can read in Latin though, like that will get me anywhere.

December 9th, 2007, 11:56 AM
I was born in Canada, so I guess English is my native language.

December 9th, 2007, 11:57 AM
Nope, Tagalog is my native language. I was born and raised in the Philippines the first few years of my life.

December 9th, 2007, 12:05 PM

Yup, I was born in Michigan. But I am slowly learning Spanish.

December 9th, 2007, 2:19 PM
Yes, I was born in th U.S., so naturally, my native language is English.

December 9th, 2007, 2:59 PM
Yes, and I'm slowly learning French, too.

French/English are the only languages my family speaks.. :P

December 9th, 2007, 5:18 PM
My first language is Spanish :x

December 9th, 2007, 6:15 PM
I dont know exactly. I knew another language at age 2 but then forgot it completely and learned English really fast. xD

December 9th, 2007, 6:40 PM
Yeah..But my parents are like, stereotypically Mexican, so we speak Spanish around my house..it's not actually Spanish, it's a mutilated, ghetto variation of the Spanish language thrown in with english and Portuguese words ._.

By stereotypical, I mean like..dude, we had an effing pinata on thanksgiving T.T

So, you basically speak Spanglish, as we like to say :laugh:

Oh? Regarding this thread's topic, my native language is Spanish, while my net language is English (just 'cause I get a bit tired of Spanish, actually -_-)

December 9th, 2007, 6:51 PM
Yes. I've lived all around the world, but I'm pretty American. :D Which probably made the people in the countries we lived in very sad. But that's my fault for not learning about their culture. *sigh*

The only other language I can halfway talk in is German. I'm nowhere near fluent, but I understand a bit of it.

December 9th, 2007, 7:02 PM
Mmm yeah I learned English first and born in America. Learning Spanish in school since it would so fit meh ugleh latina appearance~ Or should fly for German or Russian or god w/e.

December 10th, 2007, 7:13 AM
Nah, my native language is not english, but im a fluent speaker of englich and I can speak english better than my own native language and even more fluent, But I can also speak alot of variety of different languages like french and other languages.


December 10th, 2007, 7:57 AM

December 10th, 2007, 1:24 PM
English. The language here used to be Irish, but we now speak English because England took over some time back <=D

December 10th, 2007, 1:56 PM
French. But I live in America right now.

December 10th, 2007, 2:28 PM
My native language is English, as I live in Ohio. *pokes location* xD
But I wish it were Japanese.

December 10th, 2007, 2:44 PM
Yes, English is my native language, because I come from England. XD

December 10th, 2007, 3:09 PM
Yep, I can't speak any other language correctly. I have my own way of pronouncing things in Spanish. It's like a weird Chinese accent with Spanish words. Ugh confusing. Not really.

December 10th, 2007, 3:13 PM
Uh, no, German is my native language. I've been learning English for a long time though...

December 10th, 2007, 11:52 PM
I'm part mexican, italian, german, and part indian... but I've always been considered just 'white'. xD;
& My native language is English, yes. I suck at other languages, and I can't learn Spanish to save my life.

>>; ...

Infact, next to English, my best language is Japanese.
Both of which go totally against my bloodline(s)..

December 11th, 2007, 8:44 AM

I know Spanish (Kinda)
A few words in Italian ( Pizza!)
A few words in German
A few words in Arabic, French and Japanese.

December 11th, 2007, 11:12 AM
Yes and the only one that I know.

December 11th, 2007, 11:14 AM
Yes. And my only language.

I have failed so many times at learning a new language. Maybe I'm just unable to.

nop my native language is spañish, my second language is english i've been learn english since kindergarden

December 11th, 2007, 12:40 PM
Nope, my mother tongue is German, but I speak English quite fluently.
That's because I've got relatives from Canada (and French) and I had friends in the kindergarten/elementary school who could almost only speak English/French and so I learned a lot.
It would be great if Japanese/English was my my native language.

December 11th, 2007, 7:25 PM
Yup, I'm the only one in my extened family that can speak anything but english. It's definately my native one. (though I've yet to master a french accent)

December 12th, 2007, 6:19 AM
Mmm yeah I learned English first and born in America. Learning Spanish in school since it would so fit meh ugleh latina appearance~ Or should fly for German or Russian or god w/e.

Are you like trying to say that latinas are ugly? .__. OMG. I hope not.

I`m from America so yeah, English is my native language. Though I guess I have other native languages like Cantonese since my mom is from China & Spanish since my dad is Guatemalan.

December 14th, 2007, 11:29 AM
English is my primary language, but I do know some Spanish. Well...what I remember from the two years I took in High School. XD

December 14th, 2007, 1:44 PM
No, my native language is Dutch because I live in Belgium, you know the country of the waffels :P. They speak Dutch in the Netherlands too. But I can speak French too (it's our second language),English of course and a little bit of German (next year I will learn it on school). I can read Latin too.

December 16th, 2007, 2:11 PM
*points to location* Yep, first. But I can speak like half of Spanish. =\

December 16th, 2007, 3:58 PM

December 16th, 2007, 4:00 PM
Lo siento, pero el ingles no es mi lengua native, el espanol es mi primer lenguage.

I'm sorry, but my native tongue is not english, spanish is my first language.

December 16th, 2007, 6:56 PM
My native language is Spanish. Funny three in a row pink-tiger, Black_Wolf, and now me. I'm Mexican too. >.<

December 16th, 2007, 7:47 PM
My first language is some obscure dialect of Chinese, but it's really close to Cantonese. But now, I barely know anything...

Off-topic: Wow, three in a row. All of you have some sort of color at the beginning of your name too...

My first language was Mandarin, but I kinda do poorly at it now having not learnt it fully and instead coming to NZ and speaking English.

December 17th, 2007, 1:41 AM
English is the only language that my family speaks, unless "redneck" counts. But I feel that that is just a dialect of American English.

To increase my knowledge, I am learning Brazilian Portuguese. One of my favorite books has a few passages in the language, which made me want to learn it. So far, I can only say a few odd phrases.

December 17th, 2007, 2:30 AM
Yes, it is my native language. My second best language would be Chinese. Hehehe.

I plan to learn French, Spanish and possibly Italian in the future. I can only count one to ten in Spanish, and some few other Spanish words as well.

January 15th, 2008, 4:08 AM
Sort of...I've always known Hebrew and English. :P When I was a kid, moreso English, but I went to an Israeli school so...

January 16th, 2008, 9:14 AM
Nope, English isn't my native language. Spanish was my first, but I speak in English a lot more ever since years ago. I love speaking in Spanish but after time, I became accustomed to English the most. I know some Italian, too. :3

January 17th, 2008, 5:10 AM
I wish my native langauge was something different like Italian or Russian.. But its English. I can speak some Japanese though and understand it. But Im just a begginer so.. XD

January 17th, 2008, 6:00 AM
No, it isn't, it's Dutch.
Since I'm from Belgium.
But I think I'm pretty good at English, no? :D

January 17th, 2008, 11:17 AM
UK English, is.

After almost 16 years of the language, it's... boring, really, boring...
Next year: Something different. :P

January 18th, 2008, 7:43 AM
English is my native language.

January 18th, 2008, 1:49 PM
