Joshpet1: I can speak igbo Yoruba English n pidgin fluently But Chinese Japanese partially undecided undecided

So you speak a little of both Chinese and Japanese. Awesome! I speak Ekpon, a language quite similar to but slightly different from Ika language spoken in Agbor. Also, i speak a little Esan, Ibo, Yoruba and Efik. Other languages I can speak quite well are Chinese and Korean. Although my Korean is really diminishing because there's nobody around me to practice speaking it with. I'm looking forward to learning Japanese smiley

Afam4eva:
It's not weird cos what you call Igbo is actually Central Igbo that most people from the Igboid speaking tribes understand but most of them have their own dialect. For example, what you call Igbo is actually not my dialect. There are people from my town that find it hard to communicate in Igbo(central). What i've noticed is that people from Ika, Ukwuani and some parts of Anioma always think the Igbos in the South-East speak the same language. We just addopted that Igbo for easy communication with other Igbo groups. I'm sure you won't understand my dialect easily just as i won't understand Ika or Ukwuani easily.

I couldn't agree with you more.

Wow, look at the big brains on this fellow... Grammer Nazi

....to look forward to doing sth is correct.
look forward (transitive verb) + preposition 'to' + gerund ( verb +ing).
Eg. I look forward to learning Chinese soon.
I look forward to hearing from you again.
I look forward to hear from you ( is wrong )
