I can speak English and French (though that's a bit rusty now), plus a little bit of Spanish. That helps me see similarities in a few other languages. And this year I started learning some Hebrew (spoken plus reading transliteration when provided, but the Hebrew alphabet is tougher for me so far). Languages are so cool!
I like the arabic "coughing sounds" and when I say like "Ahmed" I like to stress the "cough" sounds ...sorry I can't say that that sound is called. it's the like when when you want to hawk a loogy (spit)
If that's Russian it's confusing. I don't know much at all but, having learnt the Cyrillic characters, I find it much easier to read in it's original form (except for handwritten Russian which really confuses me).
