Hello there! Nice you found that forum!
To iniciate a little bit of a dicsussion, I will put this question up, so we all can connect a bit and know more about each other.
I wonder what language you speak with your partner - his/her language, your language, another language (for ex. english), or a mixture of all?
For my part, at the beginning my partner and I we spoke only his language because he was still learning and did just know very little of the language we speak here. Now, we have like a mixture, but it doesn't work so well because when you once start with a language, you're getting used to it and you can't change so easily, I think...
Would love to hear your thoughts! 😙😀
Wow, very interesting topic. We communicate in English with each other. She speaks Hungarian and I speak Marathi. We are slowly learning each other's languages so that we can communicate with our in-laws in better way 😊
Hi everybody !
I'm Tifenn from France and my boyfriend is Armenian. When we met together, we didn't speak the language of the other, and we didn't have common language too ! As I like to learn new languages, I started to learn Russian which was easier to learn than Armenian and more understandable with google translate which was the basis of the beginning of our communication 😆 Now I can say that I am fluent in Russian to speak with my boyfriend and his family. We both know few words in the language of the other and can make little conversation and when we will live together I think that we can be fluent in the language of the other 😀
Hey everybody :)
It's an interesting topic - for me and my partner it started actually in another language - english - cause it has been our only common language. I don't know how you feel, but for us it was always clear, that we want to learn the other ones and not stay in this "international" way in which none of us feels at home ;) Also there were a lot of misunderstandings cause of other type of humor etc. in a language that anyone really enjoied. I don't know maybe you made similar experiences? Glad to hear them :)
After his exchange year in my country he started to learn more and more my language in taking classes and staying around my family and friends - that's even better than all the school stuff cause you are learning by doing I guess :D and with my courses in his language and talking regularly with his family by phone etc. it got more and more easy to communicate in our " language homes". Now we enjoy it very much to talk in my and his language - most of the time we switch, depending in which family we stay. Even we also had some troubles at the beginning to change - it's really taking a lot of discipline!- I can recommend that it's very worth it to try more and more and stay stubborn with each other! :D
We speak in his language but also a bit of my language, as he is learning my language (because we live in my home-country)...
Hey :) I speak his language, as he lives in his country and me in mine, and I already knew his language before meeting him. He wants to learn my language though in a future.
