Native German here.

Iím okay with English (much better written than spoken), mainly thanks to English books, websites and TV shows. Also a bit due to school, but all the practice is much more useful.

Iíve also learned some French in school, and I can get by most of the time, but itís fairly terrible.

I am also half-heartedly trying to teach myself Dutch (at least understanding it), just for fun.

My native languages are Catalan and Spanish

I can obviously speak English as well. I studied French for 6 years and was pretty good at it, but I haven't used it since I finished high school and I've forgotten a lot of it. I would like to pick it up again at some point.
I've been studying Mandarin for the last 2 years. I'm quite decent at it, albeit I've still got a lot of vocabulary to learn.

ASL! I also took an interest in it and learned a little because I was inspired by the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy

What's crazy is that the American version is apparently completely different than the England version, even though the oral language is the same

As such I can also pick up some very basic words in certain Arabic dialects, but that's extremely limited, and I don't know the Arabic alphabet as Maltese doesn't use that.
I love Maltese it's such an interesting language. Elements of Arabic with random flecks of Italian and English haha.
