    I think I’ve heard Fiftyfootbride mention something about her fiance’s German accent and her taking German 3.

    I wish so badly I was bilingual. It would be awesome. When I was younger I did really well in French but stupidly gave it up. 🙁

    We are!  I’m Polish and my husband is American.  I keep trying to encourage him to learn the language, but it’s a hard process 😛

    My FI is Dutch, born and raised in the Netherlands but moved to the US for school. I’ve only managed to learn a few survival words (wine, beer, toilet, chicken, beef)but I’m sure he would love it if one day I could at least get to a conversational level.

    My FI is Danish and I am American…and we’re currently living in Sweden. So I am in the process of learning Swedish and then adding Danish on later (he luckily can speak both if necessary) His English though is flawless…I actually didn’t know that he wasn’t American the first few times we spoke to one another. I REALLY want our kids to be bi- or tri-lingual and I need to know what they are saying to me 🙂

    My fi is Hispanic. I’m American. He speaks Spanish and English..and learned a little German. I speak English..and Spanglish really really well ;)!

    He left me with is grandmother who only speaks Spanish and I spent the entire time looking at her with a giant smile on my face nodding…like I totally have no idea what you are saying because my Spanish isn’t that advance and you are speaking way to fast for me…when he finally came to save me..all she was telling me is how pretty I was! Which is bonita but when she said it, it sounds like monita..and I couldn’t figure out for the life of me what she was talking about!

    We!!! Well I am a Spanish speaker and Mr. Poodle is American, he’s trying really hard to get better on Spanish, he said he need to get better so that way our future children won’t have to teach him, or make fun of his Spanish LOL

    We’re both trying to learn Spanish and we’d really like to raise our children to be bilingual.  Living in NYC, being able to speak Spanish is starting to become a neccesity!

    My first language is Russian but I started learning English in 4th grade so I’m totally fluent, (no accent).  FH’s first languages is English and Italian.  we communicate in English but sometimes he bitches that when he’s with my family we have a tendency to slip back into russian, (the older generation).  I keep nudging him to learn some russian but so far no luck.  I’m secretly learning Italian because it would make his Mom SO happy, (although she is fluent in english as well).
