How to learn all languages in world before our life ends ?

Friday, February 1st, 2013


I have heard of people who have mastered to speak 8 languages fluently and that means they are great linguists. I am sure that the person who is fluent at the highest number of languages can top 8 and maybe there is someone in the world who can speak 10 to 12 languages and with ”speak them” I mean well enough to have a conversation and to make themselves understood in writing and in speaking and to understand others..I don’t believe there is anyone who ever spoke all languages in the world there are so many and some languages are really hard to learn.

I am sure for the Chinese it’s easy to do those cute little paintings that represent words…to me it looks like some painting and like a lot of trouble to paint letters like that. I would never be able to learn Chinese and that is a good language to learn because Manadrin Chinese might become very important and it’s a World language, just like Russian, English, French and Spanish…they are the most important languages and they are the most learned as if one is able to speak them, then one can make oneself understood everywhere in the world! x However, there used to be and still are some linguists who claim to know several hundred languages and some claim that they speak 58 or 100 languages…that would really make them geniuses in the field of linguism…that is hard to imagine that this is humanly possible to not get those languages mixed up or to get confused to have to juggle so many different languages…I believe the average person speaks probably 2 or 3 languages. A lot of people speak 2 languages and many speak 3 or 4 because they learn them in college and some come from a multi cultural family…and marry someone from another country, so that makes them speak 2 languages already and some languages are manatory to learn them at school so they become fluent at English…most people speak English and a lot of people are foreigners who go abroad and immigrate to a new country so they have to learn the language and their children will be born there for them it will be easier to speak the language as they are second generation…Swedes or Australians or French …or Swedish people or Norwegian people immigrate to the USA and they learn English. I am sure most have to learn English at school but that makes two languages already…I was born in Germany I speak German and I learned English at school but the normal school English we learned in Germany when I was young was not sufficient if you went to High school to hold a great conversation. I married an Englishman and I moved to Canada so of course I speak English and I know the Dutch language but I can’t say that I speak it. I can read it but in order to claim to really speak a language one has to do just that ”be able to speak it” To read in Dutch is easier for me as a German I suppose because I see that the Dutch language is a mixture of English and German..so I can read books in Dutch if I want to but I can’t speak it..I have a cat who is almost 19 years old and we got him when we lived in the Netherlands. He comes from a little Dutch town called Lisse… I am sure he meows in Dutch and he understands me and we talk to each other. I don’t know what we are talking about but we get along just fine!!!
