French. I know a few little bits of it from skimming through a copy of the Complete Idiot's guide to French or some such that I picked up at Barnes and Nobles ages ago. But I keep putting the book down to wander off and do other stuff. >.>

Of all the languages and derivatives, I would most love to learn written and spoken Latin.

I took two years of latin in high school. I liked it, but lost it due to never taking it seriously and cheating on all my tests in class. Real scummy waste of my time -- but what I did take made french seem lile a cake walk when I considered it, again disuse struck it pointless. Japanese was intriguing, until my second deployment in the pacific. I think russian, is something I want to finish.

Latin was my favorite language, and I would love to re-learn it. Never learned spoken, only written.

I'll settle for learning Italian, even if it's lightspeedfastandiwouldhavetobegthemtoslowdownsoicouldunderstandthem.

Just say beatbox and wave your hands around a lot.  Throw in an occasional 'aaaayyy' for good measure.
