    So if you would be in a relationship with a guy from another country who lives in your country. In many of your cases that wouls be the USA. He speaks your language, would you bother learning his language? If things were serious that is?

    I haven't dated a natural-born US citizen in almost 8 years.

    And yes, I speak semi-fluent Spanglish.

    my guy (American) most definitely made the effort and learned some German. Just to be able to talk to my parents and understand dinner-conversations when we are visiting my folks.

    I'm a bit fluent in Spanish so I feel fine when I converse in Spanish with people. I can understand a Spanish newspaper.

    I would feel honored to date a foreigner and learn his language while I can teach him mine. I feel like it will make your bond stronger icon_biggrin.gif

    Nearly everyone I've dated since coming out has been foreign born. One guys English was nil. And yes I've learned a little of their native tongues.

    Sure, I'd learn as much of his native language as I could. He'd probably have to learn some English for me... so why not be fair to a guy who may be commitment material?

    @ malefeet: ^^Lulz!

    I learned sign language as a way of getting to know, but then to help get over a guy who knew sign language... too bad he didn't have much good to say with his words. College degrees are useless ways of masking one's personal sense of emotional disfunction/atrophy.

    I've never dated a foreign guy, but I've dated two American-born guys whose parents were immigrants. One had parents from Panama and another with parents from Vietnam of Chinese descent. As for the one with Panamanian parents, that was never a problem because I already speak Spanish as a native language. The other with Chinese-Vietnamese parents proved to be more interesting because I tried learning Cantonese during the time we dated. However, we broke up before I ever met his parents, lol.

    Guilty here. During a five year relationship Swiss-German was never learned. We always spoke German at family gatherings since that fluency existed. The kids looked at me as a high-brow because of the High German.

    This sounds like a thread I started earlier, of course, I like foreign guys a lot. I don't have any problems learning his language or helping him adjusting if I really dig him.

    Depends on the language really. I'd happily learn any of the major European languages that I don't yet know.

    I love learning new languages.
    I've been in Positano Italy for the past few weeks and have spent some time with a totally awesome guy named Piero.
    He speaks conversational English and quite honestly if geography were different I would totally learn Italian for him.

    The language barrier is kind of a bitch, especially if you don't really hit it off with the person you are with. But when the chemistry is right, it seems to just work.

    Consequently, I'll probably never see sweet Piero again so I will count my blessings cut my losses and follow the yellow brick road.

    I wouldn't be opposed to it. Like many others, I find some foreign accents incredibly hot. There was a brief brief period of time that I was involved with someone who spoke Greek... and I'd have learned that sexy language in a heartbeat had it gone further.
