I am From Rajashtan, therefore Marwari is my native language then settled in delhi since 1978 so Hindi is now primary language beside that English is other spoken language here in delhi.
Most of my friends are Punjabi so now I can speak and understand Punjabi also. I can also read Gujrati and can understand it 75% and can speak 25%

Since my work (Exports) required that I speak most of European languages, therefore I learned French for three years and can speak Italian and Spanish a little bit also.My other business was touristic shop at Hotel Le Meridien in Delhi where I used to sell Touristic books, gift items and gold+diomond jewelry and was visited by tourist from world over hence I know little bit of Japanese also (I study Japanese for few days in the school also)

I don't want to learn the real Hindi, I've heard it has got some 8 papers. I just want to learn the spoken Hindi for communication. I think I should start watching more Hindi movies.

Not only that, if you listen to the real Hindi, it will be totally different! Do you remember the old Mahabharath series? That's one typical example for real Hindi, which is tough to master.

Konichiva means salutation, ari gatto means thankyou, like others.
I had closed down my retail shop 3years back, since then I am forgetting most of it.
Another word I remember Yasui mean cheap.
I don't know how they right these words so I tried to write them as hear them, I went to learn Japanese in 1991 only for few days.

That’s the spirit. Keep all that stuff coming. I have casually learned a few Spanish words but the sentence that I can speak and understand perfectly is only “Hola amigos, cómo son usted? I'm sure our mod Zinam is good in Spanish as well, He knows why. :biggrin:

Another word I remember from Japanese which we learned at the school " Anna tawa Indojin des ka" means I am from India.
Another one " wata sino Nihonjin des ka" means you are from Japan.
