Any reason for the Korean? I plan to learn Korean since I have been dying to go to South Korea.
Well...combined 40 years of practicing and teaching Taekwon-Do under 4 different instructors: 3 Korean and 1 American. However, my American instructor lived and trained in Korea for 18 years under the tutelage of General Choi Hong-Hee, the founder of Taekwon-Do. Also about a year ago, I returned from Asia, spending close to 3 years in South Korea supporting the country'* airlines.

I speak/write both English and French. Living where I did, I went to French school all my life, but I find that over the years, my English accent shows more and more in French. There was a time that my English had a French accent and my French had an English accent, go figure.

I can do basic French - it'* been I few years after I stopped taking it in high school, so my grammar is out the window, but my vocabulary is still pretty good and I could probably survive if you stuck me in the middle of Quebec

Being of Vietnamese background, I'm good with speaking that - reading I'm iffy, and writing you can forget about.

I took a semester of Spanish, but can't really remember any of it. I speak American and redneck. I'm somewhat fluent in ebonics from living with my little brother.
