Re: What is your mother tongue?

English but I've also been learning Irish this year, which is the first official language of Ireland. English is the second official language. Ireland must be one of the few countries in the world where most people cannot speak (or have a poor level of) the official language!

Slovak and Hungarian, I use Slovak in my family, unfortunately I use hungarian too little, but I still read quite a lot.

Don't talk to me about rules, dear. Wherever I stay I make the goddamn rules. MC

I have always thought of Finnish to be one of the hardest to learn European languages. From the Finnish Wikipedia (Article about Tennis):

Code:
Kyseiset lyönnit lyödään yleisimmin verkolta, vaikkakin esimerkiksi pomppuiskulyönti ja pysäytyslyönti (stoppari) 
lyödään usein myös muualta päin kenttää. Lentolyönnit lyödään alakierteellä pysäytyslyönnin omaisesti.
