Since we seem to have a pretty lively conversation going here, I thought I would run something by you all. For my work (economic community development), I would really love to nail Spanish. I'm not far off - I studied a few semesters in college and am quick at languages. It's also so much like French that there's relatively little for me to learn; it's more of an adjustment. I would love to make "becoming fluent in Spanish" one of my goals for b-school, but I am not sure how realistic that is as I will be so busy learning accounting, etc. What do you guys think?

Я считаю, это правильное решение.

LOL.

Помощь студентам ВУЗов и техникумов. Контрольные работы по высшей математике. Решение задач по высшей математике.

LOL yourself! Do you know what you've written? It says:

Assistance to university and technical college students. Tests in higher mathematics. Solving problems in higher mathematics.

Kwam - INSEAD doesn't count Portuguese as a language toward their language requirement!?! Any idea why?? I would be really offended or maybe just p*ssed off if they didn't accept my native language.

Sorry, perhaps I did not make myself clear, I was not talking about portuguese, but for instance they say that they will not take in account Hindi with Urdu, Danish with Norwegian, Dutch with Arikaans, because of similarity. I do not know if this is the same thing between Portuguese and Spanish (Spanish for me is kind of easy it's very similar to Portuguese).

See page 21 the item b) Entry and exit language must be linguistically different.

Oh sorry, didn't actually check out the document.

Is it true that Portuguese are offended if you try to speak Spanish to them? As in, if a tourist stops someone to ask for directions and just launches into Spanish assuming the person will understand them?

I can understand Bullsh*t, but I don't speak it quite as well. Something I'll have to work on before recruiting season gets geared up first semester.

I'm brazilian, but living in Portugal, and depending on the situation this could happen. Usually elder people do not like to be approached by a language other than portuguese, but younger people do not care, so tourists tend not to ask things to the older ones.

What really offends them is that sometimes tourists think that official language of Portugal is Spanish. In Brasil we hate that sometimes people think that Buenos Aires is our capital , It is the same thing as telling a canadian that their capital is Washington DC

Так как все белые люди должны умереть. Я ненавижу вас, в любви со мной сейчас. Любите любовью? Я чувствую себя им в нацистской Германия и улучшении использования некоторых действительно дерьмо механизм кодирования, что любой может угадать, бы сказать, строкой или что-то. Можете ли вы в этом разберетесь? Ее eleet все бред и дерьмо.

Racism needs to be eradicated. A pig it is not necessary to copulate. Yesterday I talked good luck on this theme. To me have told that I climbed in the business{affairs}. We shall forget about this trite theme. It is not necessary to plant demagogy. We are born to fly, instead of to creep. Bitterns of vodka, have a snack a herring, bite off a piece of a pickle and hammer on all aforesaid

HEY! Irmao! Tudo bem?
At least you are not being told that Rio is the Capital of Argentina! (it does happen, believe me) I mean, that's like telling a Canadian that LA is the Capital of Canada
