I can speak Spanish better than Chinese… strange, no? I just get more practice with friends.]]>
I learnt German at school and I was an exchange student in Germany in year 10 of high school but I don’t use it much in adult life so it’s slowly rusting due to disuse. I can still make basic chat with German speakers though and they kindly tell me I’m not so bad.
But if I won the competition, then I would pick Spanish. I have rudimentary Spanish from volunteering in Costa Rica after university but I never took the time to learn it properly. The reason I would go for Spanish, despite also wishing to learn French and Italian and Chinese, is because I’m about to move to California and hopefully do some travel in Central and South America. It might come in handy in California itself as well, especially with my work as a journalist.
