I struggle to speak English let alone anything else. I live in rural Somerset/Devon border. We pretty much have our own way of talking around yur. We get strangers in the local pub sometimes who don't have a clue what we're on about.

They taught us English in school, and that's about my limit :afraid:

Now you're just showing off! 🤣

It’s interesting J how much of the local dialect in my native Northumberland has links that go back to the Viking period. Currently in a Norwegian vessel and had a conversation about this only yesterday. Myself I managed to pick up enough of the local tongue whilst stationed in Cyprus to get by, First   mrs was Finnish and watching the 4 kids we have grow up and spending a lot of time there etc I picked up a good understanding of that. The ex could bounce between English, Swedish and Finnish no probs depending on how much I pissed her off.

Very fluent in Yorkshire dialect, keep trying proper English but soon revert back. Did learn quite a bit of Dutch once, and used to be able to do a bit of Japanese through martial arts. Always fancied trying sign language.
