Slavic languages are still the most interesting IMO.

I find Romanian really interesting cos it's a romance language even though it's out to the east of the main block of romance languages, and it has a noticeable Slavic influence.

Slavic languages make my head spin. (Russian is pretty cool tho) Scandinavian ftw.

Oh, and Spanish/Portugese > all other romanic languages.

Fuck Spanish. Ugliest and most boring romance language. Portuguese rules though.

Idk, everything's better than this lame school French. It's not bad, it's not good, it's not interesting - it's just lame.

Idk, are there even that many differences between Portugese and Spanish? I just know Portugese from this Brazilian chick and it sounded pretty cool.

I don't even know how French sounds to foreigners. Swearing in it is a fucking pain. I'll give English that, at least in the moment of frustration you can fuck with it and make that shit your bitch.

They're very similar but Portuguese accents make it sound more like a Slavic language than Spanish. I much prefer how Portuguese is written, with the tildes and nasally sounds. These days I can tell between a Portuguese text and a Spanish one instantly. Spanish just reads like watered down Portuguese to me now.

I can often get the gist of Spanish now despite never having studied it though. Apparently lusophones can understand
Spanish better than Spanish speakers can understand Portuguese.

Spanish is so damn easy. I spoke literally nothing when I arrived in Ecuador. By the time I flew home from Santiago only 2 months later, I was completely comfortable doing any daily tasks in Spanish. Simple conversations, but conversations nonetheless. Being fully integrated into the culture/language is the only way to go really.

Holy shit you've been to Ecuador? When and where did you go there?

Gotta say, in my month there I learnt basically no Spanish. I do want to learn it eventually though cos I love south america, it's just I don't want to do it too soon after Portuguese and get them mixed up and I don't think I'll be motivated to learn another language just after a similar one.

I think it is possible to learn outside the culture though. You just have to create your own bubble and work at it.

German's cool in its own way, even if it often sounds hilarious

I like the sound of German.

I went to Ecuador in the summer of 2009. I was on San Cristobal Island (about an hour from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno). I was there for a month then I did some travelling, couple of days in Quito, Otavala for one day, and Banos de Agua Santa for a little while (love that place). Then I headed for Peru.

Ah I didn't really go near the coast. Did go to Quito and Otavalo though, of course. Amazing country. It's like a
microcosm of all the awesome things about south america.

Did you go to Brasil?

Big difference between romanic and romanTic. Also, I'm well aware of the fact that German has a lack of words to describe aesthetically (not just in the visual sense). Disregarding the fact that I never claimed German was good at anything. (Personally, I actually use English more than German)

"even if it often sounds hilarious"
Just checking but you do know Germans don't always scream or sound like Hitler (or stick up your ass Austrians?)

German sounds better than Spanish, that's all that really needs to be said.

Only languages which sound worse are the Chinese dialects and Japanese.
