    What Language

    Probably been asked before, but languages do you know and what is your favourite? Not a poll because I want you to tell me (leaving it more open).

    Thanks,

    English, and a few Manx phrases, and a bit of French.

    Unless you mean programming languages, then that would be C#, Java and PHP. With a bit of effort, I could add Perl.

    Well come on, was it really that hard a question - we are on a computing forum after all. Like I really care less whether somebody can speak Greek.

    In descending order of competancy where I can manage a conversation
    English
    French
    PL/1
    German

    And I can get by on holiday in Greek (prefer to see this written - my maths A levels have their uses for decoding it!), Spanish, Portuguese, Italian...


    ... nearly forgot my few word of Welsh!

    I can cope with US English... but don't you just HATE that phrase!
