Question of the day.

If you could gain perfect fluency in any language instantly, but only one language, which would you choose?

My answer:

Oh my, this one’s so hard! I’d like to be perfectly fluent in ALL my languages, as quickly as only possible. But… one language… I think I’m going to go with the most difficult one out of the ones I want to learn, which I guess would be Sami, especially considering the small amount of speakers and even smaller of resources. If I could be fluent in any of the Sami languages (preferably LuleΓ₯ Sami but any will do) that would be very helpful.

You? πŸ™‚

  1. I’d probably choose Spanish as over here it’s the most useful one. So many speak Spanish and it’s actually becoming a requirement for certain jobs to be fluent in Spanish. BUT. If I was picking a language ‘for fun’ and because I would really love to to speak it, I’d choose Navajo.

  2. I’d choose Czech. I have a semifantasy of living in Prague one day, and they literally require you to learn the language. (Besides which, how would I get by without it?) I keep meaning to find a free online practice app with audio, but I keep putting it off!!

    My second choice would be American Sign Language, since I’m hard of hearing–but no one else in my life speaks it… but I could teach my dad, and then he and I could talk that way! He’s deafer than I am. What fun!!

    1. Wow, I didn’t know it’s required in Czech to speak the language if you want to live there! Have you checked out Duolingo? Maybe it could be helpful for you. I am not a particular fan of the app but most people who do language learning seem to enjoy it a lot.
      What a fun idea with you and your dad communicating in ASL! πŸ™‚ I think it could make a great secret language if no one else uses it in your life.
