    You mentioned that English is your third language -- what other languages do you know?

    And yes, you seem to be doing quite well (in both English and Latin)! :)

    I'd never even heard of Tamazight, interesting.

    I imagine dealing with a foreign language through another foreign language can be disorienting :D
    Some guy is teaching me French, and since he doesn't know any English, we have to communicate entirely in French. Meanwhile, I have to teach him Russian with what French I do know...

    I imagine that would be tricky (particularly the last.) How many languages do you know, Infacundus?

    Oh that sounds cool ^^ .. Tamazight is the language of native north african.. it's also called "berber language" and by the way "Hannibal" is Berber and many many amazigh ppl helped the latin language to become what it was ....( Apuleius, Priscian, Tacfarinas, Gildo, Firmus, Terence, Saint Augustine, Donatus Magnus) are all Amazigh.. most of them in the time of Numidian kingdom

    Anywhere from four to eight, depending on whether Latin counts, and whether reading a couple of languages slowly counts :D

    What interests you in Latin, Mark nas ?

    LOL, why shouldn't Latin count? :confused:

    I want to learn Latin to know my ppl's history .. most of it written in Latin.

    Huh, interesting. I didn't know Apuleius was Berber; he talks about being from Greece in his Metamorphoses (admittedly that's a novel, not exactly a biography or anything.)

    not to be confused with "Lucius Appuleius Saturninus"

    Apuleius is a Numidian berber "Amazigh"

    Until LD'ers start reproducing, there won't be any native speakers which which to test one's fluency, sadly.


    Good luck )

    I would imagine Moroccan Arabic.
    Sorry, but what are "LD'ers"?


    ETA: Oh, I see, you mean members of this forum.

    Ah. I wasn't sure what he meant, either.

    Why would that be so bad? :confused:

    That's just the effect the mere mention of having babies usually has on me.

    That bad, huh? (Is it the thought of giving birth, of raising children, or both?)

    Both.
