Talk about your heritage here. lol. You can also include languages you speak, where you've been, where you were born, where you want/wish to be, etc.

For example, I'm an American. I speak English lol. I know Spanish...decently and ASL (American Sign Language) I'd love to go to Europe and the UK and just travel the world in general. I plan on learning more languages when I have time lol


message 2: by Magnus (new)

Magnus I know Greek and Latin, Spanish, some French, American, and I can talk in an English accent.

((if you live in america you don't speak English, you speak American.))

message 9: by callmegeek (new)

callmegeek | 28 comments I'm American born and raised.
Basically half Italian, and quarter German, quarter Scotch, with a bit of Canadian thrown in.
I speak English (US, UK, AU, and CA), Spanish (fluently), and Latin. Also many phrases French (thanks, Hamilton) and select words in German, Italian, and Gaelic.


message 10: by Nate (new)

Nate American/Brit - Born in the states, spent the early years in England, moved back to the states. (creating one hell of a screwed up accent) Both parents are of authentic English decent, both born and raised in England. I sound American with the exception of a few words, for the most part I cover the accent well. It draws too much unwanted attention.


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

I've had a conversation similar to this with another friend...lol. Except we were talking in Spanish, switched to English (American?) and then just started talking about language origins and whatnot haha


message 12: by callmegeek (new)

callmegeek | 28 comments Let me clarify,
American is in no way it's own language. The language that is spoken in America is officially called English (US) whereas in England it's officially called English (UK) and Australia is English (AU) and Canada has two official languages, French and English (CA)

message 44: by [deleted user] (new)

Ummm well I'm an Aussie lived in Australia all my life...apparently o have a bit of a mixed background though...I've got mainly pomy English blood, then a bit of Scottish, German and apparently I just learnt white South African as well!! But really I'm just an Australian through and through...I love using words like G'day, Crikey Mate fairdinkum true blue etc sometimes a bit of the pomy accent slips through and I sound all proper but not very often ;)!

And for some really strange reason when I'm being an idiot or telling a funny story I tend to slip into an American accent don't ask me why...I have no clue...I can't do the accent if I try but it comes out lol I'm a strange lil vegemite (also another really Aussie thing - and yes we like shortening our words as well we do it a lot - for eg McDonald's is usually referred here as Maccas and the Aussies started it...hahaha)

Anywho I'm going to leave it at that lols


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

Nice. I've been complimented on my American accent from some friends in Nz...and I'm just like...how?? You guys are the ones with the awesome accent! haha

I've noticed that the Americans that live in the south do tend to have an accent of sorts as well. My cousin lived in Louisiana for five years. He came back to Nebraska and I would love listening to him talk. Haha. The accent's sorta faded now though. He's been in Nebraska for...3?...years I think
