Communication: Journal Prompt 107 – Languages

What other language(s) would you like to learn and why? Now go and find out how to say the following in one of the languages:

“Hello my name is (blank). I am (blank) years old. I live in (blank) with (blank) and I enjoy (blank), (blank), and (blank). Some of my favorite foods are (blank).”

Now introduce yourself to your journal in your new language. Action: This week, take one step towards learning your language of choice.


I mentioned this in another post already…

Italian–already started lessons, want to finish and visit Italy again and be able to understand the locals.

French–had classes years ago.  Need a refresher.

Spanish–had classes years ago.  Second language in the US, need to know how to communicate with Spanish-speaking people.

Chinese–since they pretty much run things commercially in the world, need to know how to communicate with them.  I think it would help in commerce and economics, which was my major 100 years ago.
