    English.

    The more I study the more I realize that English is a language for retarded chickens and the like.

    Blackmail! will probably be happy to know that within an hour I was picking up more French than I ever could with Russian. Only problem is the damn pronounciation hurts my glands.

    So, like, uh, your thyroid? Or do you mean your lymph nodes? Because those are nodes, not glands... I guess...

    I have to acknowledge that compared to most other languages I know or have notions of, English is the most simple of all.

    Perhaps Chinese Mandarin is even simpler (almost no rules of grammar), but to pronounce it and get understood by the locals is a full-time job.

    Well, I have to admit, sometimes I think fluently in other languages just so I can't tell what I'm thinking, but that's only for privacy's sake.

    You know, in my case most of the time I understand the meaning of the characters, but I haven't the slightest notion about the way they are pronounced.

    And sometimes, it's the contrary.

    For me, Chinese is a very, very abstract language, that conveys only ideas and meanings, but no sound.
