What is your Second Language?

Postby dmdiannemorales » Thu 11 Nov 2010 10:08 am

I consider English as my Second Language. Not to mention my native language, English language is a very good idea in reaching other people.

What about yours?

I'm never sure how to answer this question. Spanish is the language I learned second. But even though I learned German later, I speak it much better than Spanish.

Mandarin is my native language, but I came to the US when I was 10 years old. Twenty years later, even though I'm still fluent in Mandarin, I have to admit my English is better mainly because I live in an English-speaking environment.

Spanish is my second language, though I have not used it in a very long time.
Although I tried to learn Japanese way back before I ever took a Spanish class, but that doesn't count because I never really got skilled at Japanese, at all.
The language that will probably, in the future, be my second most skilled language is Mandarin, but we'll see how that goes.
Languages, from most fluent to more recent: English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Mandarin.

I don't even know whether my second language is Javanese or Indonesian. I am a native Javanese, and Java is in Indonesia. Javanese is my regional language and Indonesian is my national one. When I was a child, my parents taught me Indonesian language but they talked to each other with Javanese. It was not until I was a fifth grader that they started to teach me Javanese.

My second language after Swedish is Polish (on the same level as English). Being raised in a multicultural family has great profits for your children. :)
To want to, is to be able to.
