The video below shows 32 of the languages spoken around Europe. The snippets are generally around 30 seconds but some are longer and some are shorter. Play the video, turn away from the screen (it displays the country on the video) and see if you can list each language on the video. Don't open the d...

Re: Things you wish people would stop saying when you tell them the languages that you're learning

The entirety of the past seven pages is why I don't tell people :lol: Also, the following example. Discussing a possible trip travelling around a few countries, one of my friends asks "Do you speak any other languages?" Of course I say not really to which he replies, "Okay so Sarah ca...
