I don’t see billions people dropping the Roman alphabet to learn Cyrillic or worse yet a language of symbols and hundreds of characters. Chinese and Russian will be dead languages only spoken by the old in 100 years.
@Jersey2 I don't see billions of people opposing what cannot be stopped. The French could not stop English becoming the diplomacy language. What makes you so sure that history will not repeat itself as it has done thousands of time before?
The world has chosen its language. Get over it.
@Jersey2 At age 103, you don't have much to say anyway. You are soon history and those that have something to say will speak :-)
Yeah, if I was 103... you’re not too bright. Chinese is going to die soon, so is Russian. I am glad we can talk though, in English. On a Turkish website, that uses English. English won, its over.
@Jersey2 Therefore, I must assume that you are a spammer and troll since you give fake information about yourself. Being from Djibouti, you are also considered a danger for Western civilization and that just completes the picture.
Lol. I am not in the habit of giving personal information on random websites so I deliberately make my age and location something SO ridiculous that only a moron would be confused.
@Jersey2 Since the way people behave on the web is identical as their behavior real life, it gives me a pretty good indicator of what you are in real life and that means that you are a person to avoid at all costs and more toxic than anything else.
To be fair, I believe that there are Spanish and Turkish versions of this site as well.KizlarSoruyor. com & EllasSaben. comI think Hindi would also become a dominant and influential language as well.
I am aware of the Turkish version. I bet that the people on the Spanish and Turkish also visit the English version because it is the common language and people know it.
Yes, yes... toxic... avoid at all costs... who cares really. And you are still wrong as that won’t change.
@Jersey2 Glad we can agree on this toxicity issue at least :-)
I think the third most dominating language after English and Mandarin would probably be Arabic but that is just my impression
@theChineseWASP Arabic is a very wide spectrum and one has to be cautious with naming those languages arabic.Farsi, which is spoken in Iran is not at all the same language as Arabic from Algeria and even though both idioms sound similar to us, an Persian and an Algerian will not be able to communicate.
Oh yeah I know Farsi is completely different. I like Iranian culture personally so I make sure people know the difference hee hee

You don't want to learn any languages for cultural interest though like Irish Gaelic or something?
@theChineseWASP It is only spoken by 60,000 people though.
Ok, looks like I misread the question LolI would say Italian since it's a beautiful language and it would be easy to learn. I'm a native Portuguese speaker and I'm already learning English, Spanish and French. I have no interest in learning German nor Russian.
Romance languages for the win! I love Portuguese and French personally.
@theChineseWASP Honestly I would rather be a English native speaker. Portuguese is useless.But it's good to know that you like those languages. :)
I know it’s kind of useless but I love romance culture haha... specifically Portugal or the South of France...
@theChineseWASP I see that do hahaha I've never been to the south of France but it sounds better than Portugal.
Is that Finnish? I’m impressed, Grüße aus österreich!
@tallandsweet Nein, nicht Finnish -Rather Estonian, a very very close cousin to Finnish-I spoke fluent Eesti keel when i was a little girl. We live in Estonia still at least a couple of months/year at our family property. Danke für die Grüße!
@tallandsweet I just thought how serendiptious it is that I was just now-this second-looking at the Via ferrata in Austria on youtube.
Ah, alright! unfortunately, I'm not at all familiar with estonian/latvian/finnish etc. and how to distinguish between them.
Well with the education I agree with finding jobs it's kinda difficult sometimes XD
Cause of polish immigrants?
My ex was Polish and honestly I would buy a property out there as I like the food, they make great vodka and this history is interesting
Which dialects? :D Viennese, Lower Austrian, Standard German, Carinthian? Just a lucky guess lol
isn't that pretty common?Speaking the own first language in more dialects... or is that different in English...Got kärnterisch from my grandparents, viennese from my father, woid4dlerisch from my childhood until 26...From school I got hochdeutsch, altdeusch and neudeutsch (which are just high- old- and new-german)Then swizer ditsch (Switzerland speaks a own kind of german)Bit rusty but ok, my nether-german (which is also a kind of german)I found it pretty funny, slavic languages are like English evolved from german (germanic languages)... therefore a lot words in Czech are similar to german... the word milch evolved in English to milk, but in Czech its mleko... zucker sugar zuckr...German is a pretty old language... it was already widely used while great Britain wasn't foundet yet... therefore there are many dialects here... some got just a tiny range
Which German do you like the best?
Woid4lerisch... the one I use at mostBut I also like the switzer ditsch and the Netherlands kind
The little hkhmn kid told me to avoid you but I said think I have a crush on you to him lol.
