Well, that is the truth. I speak 7 languages, including Spanish, French, Arabic, Mandarin, Farsi, Hindi, Russian, and Tagalog.
There’s a lot more to this than just speaking 7 languages, though. Our resume states that we speak 7 languages (including Spanish, French, Arabic, Mandarin, Farsi, Hindi, and Tagalog) and that we are fluent in three others (Russian, Tagalog, and Tagalog). At the same time, we didn’t really say that at all. We only said that we speak 7 languages.
So I know that theres a lot more to this than just speaking 7 languages. It was just a simple way of saying that we have a certain amount of experience with 7 languages. And yet, theres an entire other resume (and a blog) that states that we have a certain amount of experience with 5 languages including Spanish, French, Arabic, Mandarin, and Farsi.
You probably shouldn’t be proud of this. Theres something to be said for being able to recognize an ability when it is actually present, but theres a lot more to it than that. It’s not that we don’t speak other languages, it’s just that they don’t actually work for us.
We can actually name the first few languages we speak on the web, but its because they are a bunch of old-school nonsense. Its just that its not a new language.
What is it about different languages that makes them not work for us? Well, there are many reasons because not a lot of languages speak different languages, and there are a few that speak more “normal” languages. We are all pretty good at languages, but just because we speak one, doesn’t mean that it is the same kind of language as others, or that it is the same thing as others.
This is the part where you say, “but languages are special,” and I will point out that there are many languages, and they all do things different than we do. But there are also many languages that are much like ours, but are very special, because they are the only ones speaking the same language. So there is no such thing as a generic language.
One of the things that’s always bothered me about the resumes I see on job postings is that they seem to point to a wide variety of languages, but the one they specifically mention is the one they are applying to, and that seems to be the one that is the smallest and the most specific.
The resume language used in the job you are applying to is a very specific language that is spoken only by the people you are applying to. It does not really say much about the job itself. The language used is specific to the people living in the country where the job is to be applied to, the people who will be evaluating your skills, the language they use, and the job you are applying to. In most cases the resume speaks about the language, not the person applying to it.
I find it fascinating that we are the only ones who can recognize the language in the resume language of the people we are applying to. The language we use to describe the people we are applying to is much more than a language we use to describe ourselves. It is a language we use when we talk about ourselves, because we are the ones who have to listen to and remember the words.
