Language you [1] work/study with, [2] love [3] willing to learn
How you'd identify your "personal belongings"?

Language you:
[1] work or study with ?
[2] love ?
[3] willing to learn ?

Mines are:
[1] Java      - widely spread in industry, happy I used to study that as a main language
[2] Racket   - love immutability, multi-paradigm, recursion over loops, and yes, love lots of parentheses
[3] C          - never programmed, but would like to learn  in order to have some low level understanding

[1] Java    - Learned it on the job over a decade ago and has been paying the wages ever since.
[2] Erlang - For some reason I find Erlang really intuitive to use and has been my weapon of choice when doing Advent of Code this year.
[3] Elixir   - I'm told it's better than Erlang. The stuff of dreams.

I try my hardest to avoid French, though there are some French‑speaking people round here, so French is occasionally necessary. Usually English, but ought to learn a bit of Nederlands because we often go that way across the Channel.
Liutauras, this is what you get for asking in Meaningless Drivel.

You damn Campbell (Tim is right) serious topic just have been trashed.

But since you already started, I always wondered, why French people while they all know English they don't speak it (on purpose), and second question is why English people who almost certain speak French too don't speak that language (on purpose too)? Third question is, what kind of cat ran over your roads?

Because the two countries are only 22 miles apart? It has been the thing for Englishmen and Frenchmen to hate one another in public and like one another in private. For hundreds of years.
If you really want bad French, you want to talk to my aunt in Germany.

Third question is, what kind of cat ran over your roads?

My daughter's cat, Neko, called after the evil cat of Japanese mythology. Of course all cats are evil incarnate. Actually, Neko died a couple of years ago.
[1] Java
[2] SQL
[3] French (since Campbell brought it up, thought I would include this one - sorry Liutauras)

That's an interesting question. I know in some households, where one language is the native or dominant language it is spoken the most, while other languages in that same household might be "sprinkled in" here and there in conversations. And on the street I have heard people of other cultures (e.g. East Indian) speaking their native language with English thrown in, sometimes mixed in the same sentence. My native language is English, and years ago I could speak (and write...with some grammatical faults) French and German. I didn't think of it at the time, but I now wish I had kept up both languages (although due to moving around to different countries, and then back to my home country [Canada], I just spoke English and so lost a lot of what I had learned). Maybe it'll be one of my New Year's resolutions........
1 and 2 are Java.
I would agree with all here, 3 is French. je t'aime
I would like to revise my #3 from Elixir to a declarative programming language such as Prolog, or Answer Set Programming. That is a paradigm that I am least familiar with and would love to learn more about it.
Since this is MD, here are a few ways of printing "Hello world" in Esoteric programming languages:

Language you:

[1] work or study with: English
(although working in an international environment has only deteriorated my English, I copy the Russian-English grammar after working with the Russian hackers)

[2] love: Korean
(just google K-pop girl bands and you know why)

[3] willing to learn: German
(quite close to Dutch and good economy)

Just my 2 cents of Meaningless Drivel.

Appreciated but at the moment a Dutchman will hear your English accent (or even any other foreign accent) he will reply in English to you.
Yes, that is a problem if I cross the channel; so many Dutchmen seem to speak English better than many Englishmen.
We are the champions Campbell!

(Hey since we are not going to the world championship I have to get our glory from somewhere else.)
Doesn't surprise me. I can't see UK or USA or Australia on that list: obviously nobody goes anywhere near EF there.
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
