How many languages do you know ?Learning some languages other than one's mother tongue, sooner or later, benefits people.
I know a few languages only, mainly English, Hindi, Urdu and besides them four more languages I learnt a long time ago- German, Arabic, Persian and Punjabi but now I'm no more fluent in these languages.
If a white skin English comes and start talking to you in your local language like Tamil, you will ,definitely, be surprised. I also experienced it when any German would come and I addressed him in his language he'd be surprised.
Most of the members of ISC are from south, I think they must be knowing some more languages because Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam are their regional languages and besides them Hindi and English are also like local languages for them.
Would you share how many languages you know.
