Who wants to learn Dutch
Sorry but this is kinda a pet peeve of mine. When someone says 'I want to learn Chinese!" It urks me because I know they mean Mandarin. But I really wish the world knew that there are different dialects of Chinese such as Cantonese as well. So when someone says those words...they truly are being really vague about whether or not they want to learn Cantonese or Mandarin. But I know what you guys mean anyhow. Cantonese is a dying language anyhow ;_;I'd want to learn Japanese of Italian. Why? Simple! When you speak it, it sounds really nice lol.
So many Japanese votes! I was considering it but I rather learn German or French first.Baaaaka.Cantonese and Mandarin are like Romanji and Kanji in the Japanese or is it nothing like that? I want to culturize myself.
You cant vote English for obvious reasons.(I can add more languages if you ask me)
Who wants to learn Dutch i'm dutch btw lol
Mandarin = mainland chineseCantonese = taiwanese& hong kongCantonese traditional chinese while mandRin simpified is. Some different words it has and other differences
Malu kinda half-explains it. It's like two different versions of the Chinese language.Here's an example to better illustrate it @Tofu:Would I ask you "Do you speak American?" Of course not. I'd be asking you, "Do you speak English?" However, we all know there are different ways of speaking English. Americans spell/pronounce words differently than Canadians do, as well as English people (referring to people who live around England) do. Similarly, Chinese can't exactly be spoken. I can say "I am Chinese." If I were born in China or that sort of thing. However, I feel like it's kinda incorrect to say "I speak Chinese." That would be equivalent to speaking "American". Got it memorized? xD
You added Finnish, but I already voted.
