Day Eleven: Top Five Languages You Wish You Were Fluent In
First New Year challenge post. Haha.
So, if German’s my language in my course, it may be the angry language, but let me admit, it’s too classy. Haha.
1.) Japanese – Of course, the language of cuteness. Everything kawaii is in Japanese, and of course, it also became the reason why “honcho,” “bokeh” and “senpai” was born.
2.) French – The language of romance and diplomacy. French may be the toughest language, but of course, the reason why it always has silent letters is because, it retains its class.
3.) Spanish – Another romance language. Well, the Philippines is a former Spanish colony, but the thing is, if you so happen to come from Latin America, racists in the US will simply call you immigrant, but what’s the big deal? Spanish is the language of Kat Von D!
4.) Bisaya – The language of comedy alongside Filipino, it is also spoken by the elite Visayans. No wonder why most of our Cebuano brothers and sisters are actually speaking in English rather than Filipino.
5.) Russian – The vodka and of course, comrades. Now where was I, oh! Russians are taking all over the world, and guess what? You get tundra and taiga.
1.) Italian – The language of food and music, it is also the language of coffee. It is very smooth and romantic, when someone calls you signora, it sounds lovely.
2.) Dutch – Of course, it’s similar to German. The reason why I wanna learn Dutch is because, it is Germanic, and it’s almost similar to English. Guess what? The Netherlands, in Dutch is Nederland. They call their language, “Nederlands.”
3.) Croatian – Diocletian’s native Croatia may be a part of the Roman Empire during his time, but Croatian is a Slavic language.
4.) Greek – Greek is the language of democracy, mathematics and of course, the language of classicism. If Greece isn’t as well-known as other countries, at least it preserves its own history.
5.) Hebrew – The language of Jesus Christ, it is of course, the language of the Jewish faith. No wonder why Yiddish, another type of German language, uses the Hebrew alphabet.
