After viewing the "Greetings From Germany" post, I noticed that quite a bit of nerfers speak German, so I am wondering, what language are you taking as a second language? I personally am in German 2 right now as a sophmore.

You should have made more languages to choose from, or at least have an other button. I speak Japanese, although I don't know that much (pretty much basic words and Hiragana and Katakana symbols). I am planning to take more Japanese in high school for 3 years.

sorry, i didn't know that they teach jappanese at high schools. I just put down the most commonly taught languages. now that I think about it, I should have put down at least an 'other' as a choice.

I got through Spanish V my junior year, but was not willing to take VI this year. Many of my speaking skills went down the drain without it in my schedule this year.

Edit: Where do you think the name "Sohei" comes from?

I am (obviously) not taking any other languages, because junior high school doesn't teach them, but I am attempting to teach myself some Spanish. Yo necesidad- uh... awww, screw it.

Lame. Latin here...probably demolishes all other languages because - oh that's right, they COME from it... (Don't hurt me.)

You could have at least included an 'other' choice in addition to 'none.'

I've been raised part Asian by the schools I have attented. I know mainly insults or basic sentences and nouns, but in Canto, Chink [Mandarin - took it for primary school and highschool], German [did it for about 3 years in high school as a third language] and only like hello's and insults in many other languages.

Trust me, my school isn't made up of too many skips, so the languages and nationalities differ greatly. A lot of us know Jap, not me mind you.

Interesting to see that Spanish is so huge :P
