    Thumbs up How many languages do you speak?

    Yella wu-naru, an daru ? BTW that means, how are you, everyone? I would like to know how many languages do you guys know and speak . Let me start off and mention the languages that I speak. The following are the respective languages that I speak: Sanskrit, Telugu (mother tongue, it is well know as the Italian of the East), English (of course), Spanish (had two years in high school), and a little bit of Japanese that I picked up from my best friend from Madurai (Haruki). Having said that, I would love to hear from you guys about the languages that you speak of . If you speak a language other than English, please post some simple words that everyone can learn, like greetings. so, here are a few words and their meanings in the language that I speak:

    1) -garu, -sami, sri- are prefixes and suffixes that mean respected, sir, madam, etc.

    2) Danya vada mu means thank you.

    3) Yo, orrai, and rai means hey you or man (usually younger generation use these words) and they depend on the context you speak.

    4) sir-ri means ok or fine.

    5) emo means I don't know.

    I thought this will be both fun and informative discussion. So, I hope you enjoy it. Here anyone can ask other about how they say certain words in their language.

    When I was younger my grandmother taught me Chinese and taught me how to write a few Chinese words. There are many different Chinese dialect. I only know Cantonese. Here are a few.

    1.) Chiseen

    crazy (but when you are talking to a Chinese person it's more like a swear word.)

    2.) Sicfan

    Eat rice

    3.) Chisaw

    Bathroom

    4.) Gowmanga (The last part is not prounouce like the Japanese comics manga. More like mang-uh)

    Help!

    5.) Tang-jup
