    Wow, that is impressive. How/why did the person learn Croatian? I myself am Bosniak and speak Bosnian, a language pretty much identical to Croatian (basically another dialect of a common South Slavic language).

    Afki Hoyo and English.....was fluent in Swahili, but lost it at a young age, as I learnt English. My missus, tried teaching me Portuguese and Creolo, but I was a terrible learner, so she called it quits.

    He moved there during his childhood from Saudi Arabia with his father, and has lived there since. Which is really surprising. While I don't understand it, I can distinguish the Scandinavian languages, Finnish, German etc. but seeing a Somali speak any sort of Slavic language with comfort messes with my brain.

    Are ethnically Bosnian or Somali?

    Interesting. Not that I think you shouldn't be here, but how did you end up on Somalispot?

    He did tell me where he lived, but I forgot. Definitely not Zagreb, because I would have remembered that. It's one of the only three Croatian cities I can name.

    That's what I was thinking. :ftw9nwa:

    Kudos if they really can! It's next on my list after I reach B2/C1 Spanish. Either that or Portuguese.

    Somali Arabic and English. I know a bit of Hindi and Urdu as well. I can sing old school Bollywood songs.

    It’s a great ice breaker with the kids especially Asian kids.

    Nog een Nederlander, leuk. My Somali isn't the best either. I tend to struggle with accents at times, but all in all, valt best wel mee

    What's the motive behind learning Amharic? Their alphabetic script is beautiful, but I struggle to see a use case for Amharic. Unless you have plans in Ethiopia, of course. Not that one reason is better than another to learn a language. Power to you

    Ahmara is the official language of Ethiopia. Learning it would make me able to communicate with nearly 100 million people. Would be a great asset in the future when I go back to the Horn.
