     My, "10 best", list includs a list of the (10) best languages to learn. craftily I have included uncommon punctuation (semi colons, colons etc...) usage as well as humor and creative writing techniques to showcase my writing dexterity. The article is written in english and submitted from the United States including 10 pictures. 9 more than required for submition. My list also exceeds the mandatory 1000-words by approx. 200 additional characters, a youtube video and a wikipedia link. I would also like to mention the time,research and personal experiences I was sure to include in this fun and creative writing.

  1. English



         In all its glory; (que: Eye of the Tiger) with all its acronyms, homophones, antonyms and vocabulary, who does not own the desire to learn english?! Be left being more assertive and inquisitive toward other languages. Leave your biases at home, this is the language for you! Ask more questions and get more answers. Employ better cognitive thought processes. In conjunction with better cogitational thought tequniques, it has no case endings, no implied or inflected meanings, and spoken verbatim (word for word).English is accurate, understood and to the point. Learning and speaking English will make you smarter! Become a true magician with words

  2. Mandarin/Chinese


         Beating out even french for the no.2 spot in Bloomberg Business Week, mandarin is known as the "Standard Chinese." It is the official language of the "Peoples Republic of China," and "Republic of China," one of four official languages in Singapore and number one in Taiwan. Many business deals are forged in these countries. It is no wonder it sits, rivaled only by english, as the best business language to learn. Learning to read, write and speak mandarin is solely impressive and you will sound highfalutin' to your friends, peers and business colleagues.  http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3wV8B4bx1lM

  3. French


         Deemed by Bloomberg Business Week, it is also one of the three most useful languages for conducting business. It it the official language in twenty nine countries around the world; from Belgium to Madagascar, from Cote d'lvoire to Rwanda and Switzerland; with 338 million speakers world wide since 2013, french is the absolute romance language. Its pronunciations, grammatical emphases and accents choir more erotic than spanish, italian or even latin. To eaves-drop on four french women speaking french, is like listening to an all-female barber shop quartet hormonizing in the middle of a maudlin affair. So, build stronger business and stronger relationships with french and be sure to start today! "Au revoir!"

  4. Latin


         While learning a new language, commitment and perseverance are key to overcome. Latin, unlike other languages will transform your brain to use in different ways and portals. It is an uncanny language, cleverly constructed and beautifully organized. Serve it will do, as a foundation, laying the ground work for its numerous deritive languages, making it MUCH easier to extrapolate other languages and never-before-seen words, even in my native english. You will become over exceedingly efficient at reckoning prefixes, suffixes and base words at a simple glance! Articulates will remain no longer a precedent because of the skills you will gain. Once it is learned, it will stay learned! Your vocabulary and vernacular will vastly exceed even the smartest of your peers. Your language solving and decyphering dexterity will reign superior to even multilingual speakers. Learning latin is learning to speak multiliugual!

  5. Spanish


         Why not spanish?! Spanish is the fastest growing second language in the United States. It is spoken in every sector of business as well as the economic sectors. It is practiced in our schools, stores, courts and on our playgrounds. In fact, I have a niece in the third grade. To my astonishment, I was informed that their school was already introducing her to spanish. It is no doubt, in preperation, for the unstoppable, viable language seed of "lingue latina." Also, it is the prelude to the advent of a highbrid language of spanish and english compounded. Language is forever changing and is inevitable in the distant, but not-so-distant future.

  6. Italian


         More closely related to spanish and latin, "italiano" is a catchy and fun language to learn. It is spoken right here in the U.S. and is no stranger to anyone with an italian friend. It too, is a romance language, and sounds of poetry or opera when spoken. In part, because writers and poets standardized the language in early 14th century. Napoleon's conquest help to diffuse the use of italian as we know it, and was adopted not only by clerks, nobility and functionaries in the italian courts but also by the bourgeoise. Italian has become the fourth most frequently taught language in the world.  and is not the only language to be "vocalized" with ones' hands.

  7. Portuguese


         If ever Brazil is a place you want to Breeze in on, Portuguese is a language of languages. Yet, another one of the "hanky-panky" languages, it is not sur-prising I minted it into one of the top ten spots. It is spoken by 260 million people global and is the sixth most spoken language in the world. From Portugal to Angola, from Mozambique back to Brazil; more verbal inflection have been preserve in portuguese than any other of the romance languages. It has been known to be called "the sweet and gracious language." To my knowledge, it is the only language with a museum , dedicated in its honor and lineage; the Museum of Portugueses Language, in São Paulo, Brazil.

  8. German


         While german, you might say, "sounds greek to me," can sound stoic and hard on the ears at times, it has its own hidden beauty. The greatest orator of our time spoke elequent german, heard from all corners of Europe and beyond. This also recomends to suspicion that spoken german is eloquent in it self. With 100 million conversers the world wide, it is the third most taught foreign language, actively spoken even in far away Brazil. The german alphabet is latin based plus three extra vowels. Its western germanic words are taken mostly from latin and greek. Comparetively, it has nominitive, genitive, dative and accusitive cases, coupled with masculine, feminine and neuter nouns to verb inflections. If you are curious to know what the longest german word is, here is a link and an explanation to how german words get so big. Hopefully, curiosity kills the cat. Happy finding! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_language

  9. Sign Language

    Sign Language

         I was walking through the hallway of the foreign language hall in college. As I trolled the foyer... an unconspicuous gaggle of a baker's dozen of students vollied a conversation in sign language back and forth to each other. It was magnificent to watch! I was lucky to have happened-by at that exact moment, as I could not take my eyes off the spectacle of this mute parley. One student, standing at 2 o'clock ,not being able to get a "word" in, was interrupted by his friend! The same with a few more, and that few more to them, until the entire circle was frantically signing at, and to one another, simultaneously! 13 students, all interrupting, contesting, agreeing, small-talking, being ordinary, being odd, appearing malaise but calm, being distinct but vague and never really saying anything at all! The same as an ordinary conversation would be conducted with all of the subtleties! With emotions and hands running wild(and not just theirs) "they are telling a story, but what are they saying?! Are they talkin about the weather? Or maybe, they are talking about the game last night." And suddenly, in an instant, their silence was fractured and the entire group of falangial linguists bursted out unexpectedly(atleast, to me) into thunderous laughter! I never did found out what they talked about, but in a total of 5 minutes the rendezvous over, they, in each, went their seperate way (s). Just...... Like...... That.....

  10. Urdu/Hindi


         Do you want to speak Hindi, Hindavi, Dehlavi or Urdu? They are spoken by several hundred people in the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, United States and in Bangladesh, where it is called Bihar. They are all the same language! With 60-70 million native speakers, it is the national language of Pakistan and six other Indian states. Coming from the Turkic word for, “army”, Urdu is taken from the Persian and Arabic languages. Urdu allots for speaking to far many more people delving in Middle East linguistics because of its mutual intelligibility. It is readily understood without intentional study or special effort put forth by its kin-ship languages I.E. Farsi, Hindi, Sindhi, Pashto, Punjabi, Balti etc…… Recent changes have been made to the language to be individually recognized among its other dialects, gaining its own ground to obtain its own individual vim.

How do I judge which one is best?! Will it be urdu, french, spanish, german, portuguese, italian or english or chinese? They are all so good. But alas, it is a toss-up between sign language and latina linguam(latin). Why can i not choose both?! I am sure there were a few deaf ancient romans that found a need to communicate. How to choose, how to choose? .........(thinking)......... And Latin takes the cake! Sign language is fun to learn and "speak" (and I say that loosly) but latin is far more practical to learn if you are not mute or do not have a speach limited relative or friend. Latin is very fun to learn also. there is no price on the education latin has to offer. I hope you enjoy my article! Vale!
