Viggo Mortenson speaks fluent English, Spanish, Danish, and French, but he also speaks Swedish and Norwegian reasonably well.

What about you? I speak English reasonably well, and can remember some key phrases and accent of French. lol.


And, you first posters of last month!

In first place ( for like the 4th time or something, not consecutively, but still impressive!) pixxiyestyx with 5 first comments in July!

And in second place, tied, or two others that have also received this recognition in the past. ;) Well done to electrosoundwav and frontdoorangel just a hair/hare behind with 4 posts each.

Nicely done! :)

I know how to be extremely offensive in French, Spanish, Arabic and Tagalog (and English, of course).

I know enough Spanish and French to buy things, ask where stuff is and be reasonably polite (although I've got a toddler's vocabulary, for the most part).

And I know how to say "these clothes are unacceptable" in Hindii.

Well, you probably know most of these already, but...

French stuff
putain = slut/bitch
merde = shit
va te faire foutre = fuck off

Spanish is easier
puta = bitch
cabeza de mierdra = shithead
pinche tu madre, cabron = f*ck yo' mama, asshole
tu mama grita como un gata en gramma = your mother screams like a cat in heat

Turns out I lied about tagalog...I used to know how to say that "your mama screams like a cat in heat" in that language too, but I can't for the life of me remember it right now.

Arabic I only know "bitch" is "shamota" because I used to work for a lebanese guy who said that to everyone "shucran" is thankyou, though and "la" means "no" (probably spelling them wrong, though).

Oh, and bonus cheesy German pick-up line is "Wenn ich gesagt habe, dass Sie einen schönen Körper gehabt haben, würden Sie beleidigt werden?" which is sort of like "If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?

I totally didn't know French fuck off! YAY! Thanks love! I did know the others in that particular language.

And awesome! Thanks love.

Another one to add to the list is Bitch in Russian. I have no idea of the spelling but it sounds like - Sue ( like the girls name) and then Caw ( like the sound a parrot makes )
