Chung, I was wondering if you've ever written your language story here somewhere? It would be really interesting to me. When you started and with which language and how you progressed through the various languages and where you've been and for how long in order to practise those languages?

Also, I've noticed that you don't count any of your Slavic or Finno-Ugric languages in your 'speaks' section, but you seem to have vast knowledge of them all. Does this mean that you have a lot of knowledge but struggle to produce it to a good level in communication or are you just really strict on yourself?

This post is probably up your alley.

It's a little bit of A, and a little bit of B with the exact amounts of A and B dependent on the language involved.

Wow, that's amazing!

Do you think Estonian has much in common with Sámi? I watched an Estonian movie, "The Singing Revolution", and recognized some words. What do you think?

Yeah 14 languages, that is quite a collection. Kafea I thought you mentioned that you had studied other languages, but I don't remember what they were exactly.

Cathrynm, I am not fluent in any of them, so they don't count.

That post was a thoroughly interesting read. If I can eventually get to even half of your abilities in Slavic and Uralic languages then I'll really be very satisfied.

So now you're on to your 15th language with Northern Saami, or is the 16th? Do you count Inari as your 15th?

I have some follow up questions! I hope you don't find my questioning annoying, I just find people's language stories fascinating.

Which of your languages have more of the B? I'm guessing Polish, Slovak and Hungarian??

What is your strongest language after English and French?

I know you've said this before somewhere but I can't remember your answer - How much do you understand of Bulgarian, Macedonian, Belorussian and Russian, having not studied them much or at all?

Do you ever confuse Polish and Slovak when speaking them?

Thanks in advance!
