Portuguese and English fluently. I can understand Spanish and most French, and very little German. Not good at writing in any of those three, though. I also know some Latin because I studied it for two years.

A little Turkish

Edit: Oh, and I don't do "Japanese: write, can't speak; Italian - speak a little" etc. I say I speak a language if I KNOW it, which for me is almost as close to being fluent in it. That makes me able to say I speak 6 languages; I'm not just interested in them.

Germanic languages are all just one big family. :p

Also, with some more vivid examples, you can see how in Afrikaans (http://youtube.com/watch?v=wrvEwv26WLc), especially the grammar has been simplified quite a lot, which in old Dutch (http://www.kb.nl/galerie/gruuthuse/page_34r.xml) is actually even more complex than it is today - much like German.

i'm so jealous. are you originally from Serbia?

The US really needs to implement more of a requirement to learn another languages in school. And none of this Spanish only (thats hardly a foreign language in America), and French is too available, cuz those two are basically the only languages taught in Americans public schools. I was fortunate enough to be able to take German in highschool.

Americans are so behind in school rankings, compared to Europe where it's required that kids learn more than one other language in school; we also seem to suck in every other subject too.:o:)

I want to learn Russian and Japanese, and after that, i'm off to Arabic. Id buy a language learning software, but i dont have a computer, adn the programs run upwards of $1000.:(

I am from Serbia. My dad is half Italian, but he doesn't even speak Italian, he speaks Russian. My mom speaks Italian and English. I started learning English when I was six so it's basically my second native language lol People say I also have no accent.

I know, I mean, I'm taking Japanese and Spanish classes in my HS and it's so much easier in USA and people also know less in their year from their European equivalents. I mean, my fourth year of Japanese here in US is like my first in Serbia.

I really like US schools though because schools in Serbia have too much in the education program so people are just forced to remember a lot of details and then they skip the essence. Here, we have less program and tasks to do, but I remember more.

Actually I did. So you can "really doubt it" all you like. But given that it was an English A-Level in the development of the English language then yes I did. But as I say doubt it all you like, you clearly know exactly what I have and haven't studied.
And yes we did study Beowulf as the most easily accessible example of Old English - although technically some of the prose is not "technically" Old English.

I only did one year Shakespeare at A-Level because it came under English Literature which I only studied for one year... I studied it fully to GCSE.

Allow me to scare you...

Mainstream I can speak English, Afrikaans, Dutch, German, a little French, some words in Italian...

In Native Languages I am fluent in Sotho, Zulu, Xhosa, Tshwana and I can understand some Venda and African French..(or Congo French as we call it).
Have been speaking our black languages since childhood...They are without a doubt more beautiful than most other languages..

I've had heavy Language training since the age of 7

Our family who consists of mostly German, French and Afrikaans people come from all over the world.


As of next year I'm learning Icelandic and Russian....Those are very hard to learn apparently....IMO the most challenging one is Japanese. Ive tried over and over and still can't seem to remember or pronounce a word of it properly. LOL

Russian, my studying is still "work in progress", this year only. I use GOOGLE TRANSLATOR to turn them to Russian alphabet and little help from there.
Italian, heh, only "Buon Giorno" or whatever it's spelled :vlol: And some "How are you" etc.
Finnish, of course, my main language.

I thought that it was called Gaelic? unless thats what Americans refer to it as.


There's two kinds of Gaelic, Irish and Scottish, and they are pronounced differently.

Scottish Gaelic is said like GAL-LICK.

Irish Gaelic is said like GAY-LICK.

At least, that's how it was explained to me. Irish Gaelic is commonly just called Irish, Scottish Gaelic (in order to avoid confusion with Scots) is referred to as Gaelic.

Spanish, French and Italian are very similar in some grammatical structure and concept of the language...

like
un garcon, une fille (French)
un muchacho, una muchacha (Spanish)

and the fact that nouns are neutered and the gender counts for what you have to add to the sentence.

The thread says "how many languages you speak ?". Its more than just knowing a few words. :o

If knowing a few words is considered knowing the language then I know Arabic, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Phillipino, Romanian, German, Indian, Sri Lankan and Greek.

English, British Sign Language (not very well now I suspect as I've never actually had to use it) Did French at school, I can still understand some written French but I wouldn't want to have to speak it now. Anyway, when I did French they taught us useless things like how to buy a packet of cigarrettes and a box of matches, this was when we were about fourteen.:smk::D

You're right.
If I answer properly; I can speak french quite well, but I haven't spoken in a while. I can read latin as well, which helps me understand other Romance languages, but I'm hopeless at translating into latin, as we've never done it, or needed to.
German I used to be able to speak, but have forgotten, and Japanese I am working on. :p

Okay well based upon that:

I can speak:
English
French
German
Old English ( technically I can although you would read it rather than speak it these days).
Latin ( technically although again I tend to read it rather than speak it).

I am learning/know to a less than conversational level:

Gaelic ( Irish Gaelic)
Spanish
Italian

I have an urge to learn Russian too now I think about it.
