Are they real languages, or what? I know there's a joke here, but can't figure it. :(

The canton of Grisons ( German Graubünden; Alemannic Graubünde or Graubündä, Romansh : Grischun, French : Grisons, Lombard Grisun) is the largest and easternmost of the 26 cantons of Switzerland . It is also the only officially trilingual canton ( German , Romansh and Italian ).

I am Afrikaans

In my book your mother tongue is who you are and anybody who forgets that is like a ship without a rudder but in the next breath a wise man once told me that the more languages you can speak the more friends you can make. For a bit of added spice I speak english(duh) german zulu Fanakalo and some portugese and a few others.

Another thing this man told me is never to disrespect another person's language as this would be considered a personal insult and never to make fun of them if they try to speak your language and it comes out sounding strange as this is a sign of respect to you.
