I study Middle English and Old English but only because I want to be Tolkien when I grow up. ;)
seriously - nice phrase is "anh yeu em" which is "i love you " (male to female).i stayed in Vietnam for 3 months from june to september 2002.at age 25 i loved it.i will go back next year. i was there for personal trip and doing some research on NGO's for possible work in the future.. i am very interested in humanitarian/volunteer work over there - building hosues, working in asylum ,helping poor children etc.
Vn is difficult langiuage since it istonal language. word said with 6 different accents can have 6 different meanings.for example word "ma" can have meanings like : mother, horse,ghost etc. imagine visiting some gfamilly and greeting the mother with "nice to meet you horse!" :)
and the vietnamese girls/women ARE the most beautiful women in the world.old saying is true! :)
lol. digitalhost..i can also speak c++,html etc
I can however remember this from my GCE french:
poor quality tape recorded voice:
"ecoute et repeter:
Madame Marsaud est dans le jardin".
Madam marso est dons le gardin
I've got a pretty broad north of England accent so i'm on to a losing battle when I try to speak french. People laugh. I shut up.
Marcus hodie in Colosseo est.
Sed ubi est Cornelia?
Marcus diu expectat.
Ibi Cornelia stat!
Marcus gaudet et vocet.
Et Cornelia gaudet et salutat.

I guess that makes 8 plus beer speek :-)
French, Russian and Italian if I'm around people using them for long enough
in addition I currently work in:
with only a little help from online translators
all entirely with the aid of online translators
next year I'm hoping to add Serbian, Korean, Xhosa, Hausa, Urdu, Thai and one of the Indonesian languages
my native tongue is Gibberish
Probably a good thing eh? ;)
Well I'm not so well trained as y'all. American English is my 1st language. I am a Vermont Yankee and can speak the dialect quite well. Other than these, I took three years of French - flunked all 3. Abhored Latin - why wear togas if we can't drink beer in school? Thought Spanish would be as bad as French and opted to cut my losses. Am currently dabbling in Italian and would love to learn Irish Gaelic (sorry BOL).
Spanish - enough studying and living there with it to have people eyeball me funny (and my pasty skin) to have them wondering where I'm from...
