Fighting linguistic extinction one song at a time.
Hi, everyone. I really enjoy learning a lot of various languages, especially Indian ones. I've found while learning languages that there's a lot of gray area, and the categories 'Native, Fluent, and Studied', are kind of black and white, so here's more info on my knowledge of languages:
English-My parents have taught me since infancy.
French-My parents have taught me since infancy, but I haven't used it as much since I started on this site, so I am currently trying to relearn the words that I forgot.
Japanese-I've been taking lessons for about four and a half years now. Before then, I taught myself basic Japanese.
Spanish-My parents have taught me since infancy, but I have forgotten a lot of what they have taught me, so I am currently studying it.
German-I've studied for about five years.
Hindi-I've taught myself for four years.
Arabic-I've only been learning for nearly two years.
Dutch-I used to speak more Dutch, but I have since forgotten the majority of what I had learned.
Nepali-My Nepali friends have taught me for several months. (I have a lot of friends from the Indian subcontinent)
Punjabi-I have learned quite a bit through songs.
Urdu-I have studied for close to two years.
Welsh-I very briefly studied it, but I have forgotten quite a bit.
Sanskrit-I have only studied for about three months, so I don't feel remotely comfortable posting translations in Sanskrit.
Saraiki-I've studied for around two months.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and hopefully my translations will be of use to you.
