    Mm, people ask me if I'm Korean or they assume I am just because I sing Korean songs. Like the other day, this girl was like "I always thought you were Korean, until today."

    Yes. Someone's asked me if I was Japanese before.
    Funny though no one has asked me if I was Hispanic because I learn Spanish.
    Then again I am Asian. haha

    I am currently studying Japanese, and yes I have been asked if I am Japanese because I speak the language. But people always mistake my nationality, so it's not a problem.

    People in my old Japanese class used to ask if I was Japanese, because I'm asian, and because I was really good at learning and comprehending Japanese. Haha! <3

    I'm taking Chinese next year, but wow, I'm pretty sure NO ONE will ask me whether I'm Chinese or not, because I think I quite obviously look hispanic. image
    I do predict that people will ask me why the heck i'm learning Chinese, because i'm "Mexican" image Geez, can't a person take whatever language they want without people judging them?? Actually, I HAVE been asked why I don't take spanish, since I'm hispanic. And to answer them, I just say,"Umm, I already know Spanish?" Why the heck would I take a language I already know how to speak?? Seriously, some people have NO common sense whatsoever. image

    I'm Spanish/Filipino/Japanese, and people don't really ask .. but they just say some random phrase, just because I'm mixed.
    I don't look spanish, filipino or japanese too.

    For spanish, no hablo español, si, taco .. lol.
    For filipino, kamusta ka or salamat or some random traditional filipino food.
    For japanese, it's always .. konnichiwa, arigatou, sushi, nintendo, wii, etc. lol

    I'm like okay with both filipino and japanese, since both parents speak filipino and my dad speaks japanese to me.
    Unfortunately, my mom doesn't speak much spanish .. nor do I have a lot of spanish friends, so I can't really learn.
    I'm more of a self-learner, than I am a person that learns in classes. :x

    i took up German and people asked me if i'm German to begin with. o____o
    and i tell them that i'm part German and taking taking it up will improve my German skills.

    But when we took up Japanese, no one really asked cause it's mandatory.

    when i saw you, i fell in love,
    and you smiled because you knew.
