how many asian friends do you have? do they speak any asian languages?
Posted 12/19/10
In america I only have 2 friends that speak japanese. Unfortunately one speaks a different dialect and I have to aid in translating some sentences. In china I have so much lol they usually come up to you wanting to be your friend. And I have 10 friends in Japan. China has soo many different dialects and languages how about you?

You seriously want me to count XD
I have like 50 other asian friends XP

Well I have three asian BEST friends (One is Pinoy, one Indian, and Sri Lankan).

The Indian only knows bits and pieces of Hindi, Assymese (sp?), and Goan (Those are Indian dialects)
The Pinoy only knows bits and pieces of Tagalog, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean
The Sri Lankan only knows bits and pieces of Tamil (A language that is spoken in South india and Sri Lanka)

Yes. I have a friend in Hunan Province and a "brother" in Beijing.

I know they speak Cantonese in Honk Kong and Taiwan but i'm not sure what they speak in western and southern China.

I speak Cantonese and used to live in HK when I was very little .

I have many asian friends (over 100 tops)
(Many are Cantonese ,Mandarin , Japanese, Korean , Vietnamese and Filipino)

I have to translate a fair bit amount of english into Cantonese for my ESL buddies :). It gets frustrating when I can't do a direct translation for them and it feels like i'm letting myself and my friend down but on a plus side its good for my own practice on speaking as well.

I have a couple friends who speak Arabic.
Though one of them is from Egypt which is technically Africa. Not sure which country the others parents are from, never really asked.
