Multi Language


I was highly amused when an American told me he wanted to be more worldly by leaning languages and listed Irish as one of them. I know there's a few words that's different, but it still sounded funny.

EDIT: Okay so he probably meant Irish Gaelic, but then say Irish Gaelic. You'd be surprised by how little I know about languages so it helps to be specific. ;)

"Irish" is the correct name in English. "Irish Gaelic" is an anglicization. Gaeilge or Gaelac are more traditional, but most people assume "Gaelic" means Gàidhlig, or "Scots Gaelic."

I learned Quebecois in Canada, which is not the same as French, and Mexican Spanish in American schools. But, when I visit Europe, my Dutch friend has to change between Dutch, Flemish, French and German within a five hour drive. Within 20 hours of me, everyone speaks English.

And of course, most Euros do, because English stalks other languages into dark alleys, clubs them over the head, and rifles their pockets for loose grammar. ;)

LOL very funny knowing that the US is the second country in the world with more Spanish Speakers, only after Mexico.

I want to learn another language, but I don't seem to have a knack for it.
