That's quite fun :)
Some of the Balkan and African languages are quite difficult to distinguish from each other (considering I don't speak any of them)...

I've never heard of some of those.  It's funny how you can identify some by the tone in the voice. That's what I started listening to.

Have you heard of all those languages?  I wasn't even aware of a few of them.

No no of course I didn't hear of all the languages! I guess I heard of the most of the European ones, but there were a lot of the languages I never knew. But it's so interesting to listen to them! I would really like to listen to all those languages for a longer time, I tried finding them on youtube but usually you just get videos teaching you how to say simple words or sentences. I would like to really listen to different languages even if I don't understan anything. I really LOVE how different languages sound!  :)
