Languages of NS

Postby Neon Lunar Eclipse » Wed Jul 06, 2022 2:05 am

I am curious, what languages are spoken by this site's users? Do you speak multiple languages, or are you monolingual? Is your current primary language the same as your native language.

My case is a bit unusual I guess. I was born in Japan to a Czech father and a Japanese mother. While I grew up learning both Japanese and Czech in my early childhood, I mostly spoke Japanese. But when I was 9 we moved to Czechia and I have been living there ever since. So for the past 20 years my primary language has been Czech. I also learned English while in grade school. So, here is how I am with my languages:

Japanese: I was born in Japan, spent my early childhood there, and went to a public Japanese elementary school through the third grade. While in Japan I spoke both Czech and Japanese at home, but used only Japanese at school and when hanging out with my friends. However, I have not used Japanese much since coming to Czechia and my Japanese proficiency has dropped a bit, though I can still speak some.

Czech: I grew up learning Czech alongside Japanese in my early childhood, but have mostly only used Czech for the past 20 years. I am fluent in it and speak it almost exclusively in my daily life outside of the internet.

English: I learned English in grade school as a compulsory class. I think it is a nice language, but I am not sure about my profiency. I think I am okay with reading and writing, but I am not sure about my speaking ability. My grammar can use some work.

I can also understand Slovak and some Polish by default because of my fluency in Czech. I also know a little Russian and German.

My native language is Dutch, and I'm very proficient in English.

I also know a little bit of French, German and Italian. Well enough to read at my own pace, not well enough to hold a proper conversation.

Not necessarily, a lot languages used Sumerian script (including Old Persian, Akkadian, etc.)
In my case, I know Bulgarian and English (both native), I'm pretty good with French, and I'm learning Russian.

Language learning can be hard. I am still trying to improve my English. I am okay with writing and reading, but not so much with speaking I think. Just keep trying your best and you will hopefully get better.

The wily leoon,often seen in Kickoo land was native to Zebasi savannah until it's was hunted near exintction for their pelt,since most zebasisan never seen a leoon,we use manufacture textile replica to honor our ancestor.

M'basana jerozi,a.k.a geroffy is one of the tallest land animal in the square,it's was the first animal to be catalogued by Zebasi scholar in the zuzannah yaya,the square's largest compondium of fauna and flora,horticulture,zoology,biology and botany are all field of study for the curious inhabitant of Zeboya

Zebasi architecture may seem simple but it's a perfect fit for the hot climate,inspired by the mount of Bolaza bugs,the ventilation in Zebasi structures was originally designed to keep the royal Waongii juice ,now everyone can live in a air-conditioned home.
