Tu loquere Latine?

Random Conversation with the Princess Nagger:

PN:  “You know my friend, Libby, right?”

Me:  “Yes, you’ve mentioned her before.”

PN:  “Yeah, she’s the one from Canada – she can speak all languages because she’s from Canada.  French, Mandarin – she knows it all.”

Me (giggling):  “Oh, it’s because she’s from Canada?”

PN: “Of course!”

Me:  “If you wanted to learn a different language, what language would you like to learn?”

PN:  “Latin.”

Me:  “Latin? That’s a pretty cool choice.”

PN:  “I know, people say it’s a dead language.  I’d like to learn it and bring it back to life.”

Do you speak additional languages? 

I’ve always wanted to learn French – I think it’s such a sexy language.  Have a great weekend!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. Hi Stacy! Learning different languages is very good because when you go to their country you can understand their language and can speak to them. I also want to learn Latin and french because it was a unique language.

  2. I know a few words of this and that, but I can say I use to speak Italian, but if you don’t speak it all the time you forget & besides I only remember a few words now. You can tell PN that Latin is a very difficult language to learn especially when you get to the female/male gender. We had to read & say Latin in Church when I went to Catholic school when I was little. No fun. No fun at all. Highly confusing.

  3. Canada huh? Guess I should move!! Ha! She is so funny…love her
    “matter of fact” way of speaking.
    I would like to learn Spanish and since I live in NM…probably a good idea to do that!

  4. Tell her many a person has tried to bring back Latin but alas it seems to be gone for good.

  5. If you mean besides English yes- We speak English, Mandarin and Cantonese at home. Sometimes I try my best in my rusty French and Japanese. On rare occassions and when seriously needed I also speak a bit of Malay and Hokkien.

  6. I remember a few words/phrases from high school Spanish class but that’s about it. I’ve always wanted to learn something sexy-sounding, too…like French or Russian.

  7. Thanks to Princess Nagger for the chuckle! I took 2 years of French, but I only vaguely remember it. I would totally buy Rosetta Stone, if it wasn’t so darn expensive!

  8. No but wish I spoke Italian. My mother and grandmother would speak the language when they didn’t want me to know what they were talking about lol.

  9. I speak some Spanish. Enough to get by if I don’t mind sounding like an idiot. I do like the idea of people from Canada knowing all the languages.

  10. I totally need to move to Canada if it makes me able to speak so many different languages. I took 8 years of French and can read/understand some of it but most that knowledge is long gone.

  11. “I know, people say it’s a dead language. I’d like to learn it and bring it back to life.”

    That kid cracks me UP.

    No, not other languages, unless “southern” counts as a second tongue (in which case, it would be my native language).

  12. I love her answers!!!!
    I took Spanish in high school. I don’t remember it, but I would love to learn it… especially since it would be so helpful in todays society

  13. I took 3 years of French – in Jr. High and High School. It is so not an easy language! You have to talk as if you have a cold half the time so you pronounce things correctly, lol. After that, I took 2 years of Spanish, and that was a piece of cake! The languages are closely related and share a lot of words, but Spanish pronunciation is just way easier. It’s now 24 years later, and I can understand both fairly well still, but if I try to speak either language, it comes out French, Spanish and English!

    I also wanted to let you know that I awarded you The Versatile Blogger Award! Check it out at http://coffeewithcheryl.com/1835/the-versatile-blogger-award/

  14. Second language well, I do speak Spanish, but i wouldn’t say I’m fluent per say, but I do understand it more then I can speak it. if that makes any sense. Have a great weekend… oh, and your little girl must have an amazing thrive for learning because Latin is such a hard language to learn.

  15. I always wanted to learn French too. I even took a few years of it in HS. The only problem is that I never really applied myself to actually learning it….:)

  16. Latin is really a good choice! Although it’s a dead language, it’s the base of the most european languages, just like french, italian, spanish… If you’ve learned latin, you could learn these languages much easier, so it’s really worth to learn latin.

  17. She’s funny-
    I’m so on board with Latin…and yes, French too.
    It’s incredibly sexy:)

    Following via Linky- stopped over from a Friday Hop link.

  18. My dad knew Latin. I’m not sure it got him far. Good thing he knew other languages too 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  19. That’s great she wants to learn Latin! I learned French in high school, a little Russian, and then I was trained as a Chinese linguist and now that is what I am finishing my degree in 🙂 (the mandarin variety). I love languages!

  20. I love the conversation 🙂

    I know my country’s language and some Spanish but I do want to learn spoken spanish and French. I agree it’s sexy 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  21. I can speak Spanish but not great. I taught in Texas in low income, high Hispanic districts. I took it in high school and college but proper spanish is NOT what they speak.

    Anyway, I love that she wants to bring back a dead language! Hahahaha!!!

  22. I live pretty close to Canada but the only languages I’ve learned to speak are English and Sarcasm. Maybe I need to cross over the border long enough to learn the rest 🙂

    If I had my choice I think I’d like to learn Spanish and French. Not positive that will ever happen though. I lack serious patience.

  23. I live in Canada.
    I do not know any other language other than French…and that is really limited to “Where’s the bathroom” and “Where’s the bar” and “Have you seen my bra? I’ve seemed to have misplaced it somewhere along the sidewalk”…..
    Those were some fun times in Montreal.

  24. Nope… I don’t speak another language, I’m still trying to speak English correctly. hee, hee.

    Cute conversation with the daughter. I’m sure when she started to try and learn Latin, she may have a change of mind. I think I would like to learn French. Anything they say sounds wonderful.

    Thanks for the visit yesterday.

  25. When I was in high school, I took Japanese because everyone else took Spanish, and I wanted something different. Now I just wish I knew more Spanish because we go to Mexico all the time!!!

  26. How I wish to go to Canada so that I know all the languages! 🙂 Anyway, learning other languages is really hard for me because I am speaking English more often.

  27. We were taught Italian in school but I struggled with that. I’ve always wanted to learn the language of love but honestly, I think wrapping my head around another lanuage might be a little beyond my reach 🙁
