How to Start a Conversation in Ten Different Languages

0

Have you ever been in a situation where you wondered if you could speak with a person in their own languages? When you hear people speaking in different languages don’t you wish if you could know their languages and understand those words? Yes, it is difficult to learn, know and understand the ins and outs of another language overnight and more importantly to be able to speak it fluently and even more importantly, to understand it when they speak. Honestly, it takes years to be on that level, unless you are someone with extraordinarily high level of IQ and competencies to learn a language quick and fast (like, Eddie Morra from Limitless?). But still, it is quite amusing when you can speak a few lines and startle them (but don’t pretend or say that you actually know their language). Then the look on their faces amuse you. 😀

How to Start a Conversation in Ten Different Languages

And who knows, this may be the beginning, your interest may lead to actually learning a new language thoroughly some day.

There are indeed some advantages of learning or being able to speak a little bit or having ‘elementary proficiency’ in other languages. When it comes to communication and public relations, You may even have upper hand for it and it may take you to places. In today’s world where more or less we reside in an international and multicultural environment, this can help you have an upper hand when you make new acquaintances at a workplace. You should look at their faces when you surprise them by greeting in their language? I love the surprises and then the cute smiles that appear on their faces.

Also, during interviews, some interviewers expect some specialties in interviewees that woo them or surprise them. Not some, everyone likes to be surprised. Who doesn’t? So, this could be considered  as one of your qualities as well. You never know what comes in handy. Personally, yes. I would be startled if someone unexpectedly asks me how I am doing, in my mother’s language. Let alone impressing others, impress yourself first.
