Native language swedish, annd I speak pretty fluent english.
I also know french well enough to understand most stuff on websites for example, and I'm learning a little japanese but that language is close to hopeless xD I can understand norwegian and written danish.

Then I know some other languages very crappily...

I'm speaking german as native language XD and I know English quite fluently ^^ I speak it fluently at least, with only a few mistakes now and then

I studied French for 3 years and Latin for whole 5 years XD but i forgot it all.
I am in my third year of Russian aaand I learned Swedish for a year...
but Swedish is extremely easy to learn when you're german XD

I just love languages!! I have to learn Japanese eventually...

Czech (mother language), fluent in English and Japanese, German (passive)
(little French, understand Slovakian and Polish - but that's easy, as these are Slavic languages as well)

I know both Swedish and English fluently, and can also read Norwegian and Danish (and make a little bit of sense out of Icelandic).

I "can" speak Danish and Norwegian as well.. As in, changing some of the words I know are different and changing the intonation and so.  :D

My native language is English, and the only other languages I can speak is the remains of French/German lessons from school about 5 years ago (which is going to be interesting when I go to Germany in a few months  :lol: ).

Mother tongue is Finnish, but my English isn't bad either. I've learned Swedish at school for 4 or 5 years and started learning Japanese last autumn.

I only speak English. Although I just picked up the Rosetta Stone's Japanese until my husband gets back from Iraq and then I will find some classes to take as well. My husband is the language guy. He speaks Russian,Ukrainian(well obviously similar to Russian),and Arabic.

Oh, nice thread since I'm studying languages in secondary education.
My mother tongues are Finnish, Swedish and English. I have no idea why my parents talked English to me and my bro when we were just kids. I speak all these languages at home.
Along those three languages, I speak French, German, Russian, Latin and Japanese, and I'm studying all of these at the moment.
I'd love to learn lots of languages, like Icelandic, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese... I just love languages, they are so much fun! :D

Wow, thats alot to learn!
Um,...my parents are vietnamese. The vietnamese language in Chinese and Latin mixed together...I think, thats what I learned when I was little, Vietnamese is very similar to Chinese, but we don't use characters/symbols. We use letters and marks. It may seem easy, but it is VERY hard. I am very good at vietnamese, but am not fit to be a teacher, so don't try to get me to teach you. When I grew up, I spoke both Vietnamese and English, since I was born in America because of the Vietnam War back the 1970's. The first words I learned were like......dog and cat and stuff..Simple words....I almost always went to summer school to learn more and more vietnamese, my parents made me, but I didn't want to go....So I am the smartest in Vietnamese in my Sunday School class. Yay Me!

God, I feel so lame! I only know English. I've been learning Japanese for a little while now and only recently have had any success. My brain doesn't wrap around language easily it seems.

I hope to learn some Cantonese, Hindi and maybe Korean someday. I doubt I will, but it would be interesting.

if you keep on trying you can learn any language you want, just don't give up and don't think you're bad at this

Yeah, Yoshiki once said to keep on trying no matter what life throws at you, you know being bilingual is good for business (so random...)

Haha, if I were learning a language for business, I would probably choose French or Spanish. ;) I haven't seen many customers try to communicate in Hindi, at least around here.

Thanks for the encouragement, I'm trying my best!

English. I'm studying Japanese for about 7 hours a day this year, so I'll hopefully be pretty fluent by the spring. I already know more than enough to get around... Reading is difficult, though.

I speak English and Hungarian fluently. I studied Russian in school for 9 years but I haven't used it for a very long time. I also studied German. I hate the irregular verbs! I also understand a bit of Italian/French/Spanish but not enough to write home about it. I'm studying Japanese now just for the fun of it. And I'm secretly hoping that eventually they will take a page out of the book of the ancient Romans and they'll abandon character writing.

Great topic!

I speak English fluently, it is my first language.

I speak Spanish, I've been speaking it for the past three years.
I'm not fluent, yet....almost.

I am currently learning Japanese! I love it!
Although, I do have trouble speaking it.
I add too many intonations to the words. lol
I hope to work/live in Japan in the future, or to at least go there. lol

In addition to all of that I am also learning French.
I love the language and I hope to one day speak it fluently.
Also, to of course visit and/or live in France for a bit.  ;D

My primary language is English and while I don't speak any other languages I can read French with some proficency. Couldn't read a novel or tell anyone exactly what is written but I can understand the jist of a few sentences or paragraphs. Only stuff I really remember how to say though are O Canada, the bare bascics and "Je ne comprende pas Francais. Anglais sil vou plait?/I do not understand French. English, please?" which will serve me well if I ever have to travel to Quebec.

Would like to be able to speak and read it fluently though.
