    my first words were no, more and want. Pretty much summed it all up :D I think child-me had a Faith mentality.

    first French words were Salut, j'ai m'appelle Katie, et tu? and Comment ca va?
    but lord knows i can't spell in French anymore, as you can see :D

    I just don´t remember >.< I´m a non-native English speaker, but I don´t remember!
    Probably I had something like 6 years-old... something like that.

    Fisrt Spanish world was SO late, it was the "to be" from Spanish.. around 9 years-old.

    First German was REALLY late, it was "wunderbar" lol Around 15years-old.

    First French word.. well, I think it was "abajour" xD Anyway, learning french, it was "je m´appelle Carol" xD And it was about 18 years-old!

    Ah! And now I have my first swedish word xDDD It´s "säger"! o/
     
    Washburne: And here I was thinking "säger" was your third word. ;) Oh, well.

    I think mine was "sorry". I remember when I was 7-8 years old and we're learning the song "Head and shoulders, knees and toes". :D After a few years I realised that the name of shampoo (Head&Shoulders) isn't that hard as I thought.
    I remember also this song with alphabet, but as I know in English-speaking countries they learn the same one.
    Ohh! And I remember this joy when the English-teacher has said "Sit down" or "Stand up". I don't know why, but for 8 years old children it was HILARIOUS.

    First German word? I've never liked that language, but it was, I guess, "Scheiße". I know, impressive. :D My German-teacher was always angry and has said something like "do you know that is almost a CURSE?!".
    I know that Hungarion "yes" is "igen". My friend was crazy about Hungary, have no idea why.

    I'm not sure if this is correct, but I'm pretty sure it's "Hello".. I started learning English when I was six, and we usually start with greetings and alphabet first.

    I think my first couple of English words (with very curious ideas at how to pronounce them) came from the names and tagline descriptions of MOTU action figures, when I was six or seven. So, I'm probably one of few peeps who can rate stuff like "Lord of Destruction" among their first foreign words. *feels badass :cool: *

    Funnily, when I first learned the word "human" that way, I thought it meant something like "boogeyman". :D

    Well, I can't really remember my first English words, but I did learn a lot of my first English through games. Especially through Runescape ;P I do remember that I knew the English word 'jug' because of Runescape x')

    Wow, this is an old thread.
    I really don't remember what my first English word was. It might have been something from a cartoon show. Like Extreme Dinosaurs or something. The kind of stuff I grew up watching. There are plenty of English words in the titles. I grew up in the wake of Jurassic Park. It might have been "Jurassic", but it probably was something else, less special.
