Friday Fun

Here's a little quiz to jumpstart our weekend...

Here's my results:

You Should Learn Chinese
Surprised? You shouldn't be - Chinese is perfect for an ambitious person like you.You're a natural entrepreneur, and a billion people are waiting to do business with you!
HAHA! Somehow I don't agree....

I think this was interesting to me because I've been talking with a lot of people about languages lately. My sister, who might be moving to west Texas next year with her military hubby, is concerned about getting a job if she doesn't known Spanish. Another friend of mine is trying to get into the military and knows fluent Spanish, but kicks herself for not having learned Arabic during the years she lived overseas.

Do you speak another language? I took highschool French and passed with a middle C. And that was working my booty off. Foreign languages do not come easy to me. Guess I'll stick with English ;)

Take the quiz here!

Nee how ma? :-) That's How are you in my very limited Chinese. At least...I think it is.

HAHA, this one is wrong on so many levels ;)

You Should Learn Swedish
Fantastisk! You're laid back about learning a language - and about life in general.
Peaceful, beautiful Sweden is ideal for you... And you won't even have to speak perfect Swedish to get around!

In high school I took French, though my parents begged and prodded me to take Spanish. In collge I took Russian because I was sure I'd be there one day. Uhh....still haven't made it.

I got Swedish too when I took this quiz. Not sure what the connection between my answers and the description are!

I took two semesters of French in college, and while I got to the point where I could sort of understand people speaking it, and I could read it somewhat, I have an inability to actually think and speak in another language. Luckily for me, in the extensive European travel I have had the opportunity to do, I have managed just fine with English and a couple of well placed phrases. Thank God for universal words!

My son and I took the quiz. It says I should learn Spanish. (I had one year of hs Spanish and I know enough to be dangerous.)

My son scored that he should learn Japanese. I think it was the video games/sushi question that decided it for him. :)
