I have a confession to make. I'm a complete language nerd. I love learning languages and I tend to easily jump from one to an other (I am currently working on limiting this problem). So, my question is? What languages do you speak?

I'm a native French speaker.
I learned English in school and I am confident enough in my ability to say that I'm fluent.
I am currently learning Dutch. I can understand it fairly easily but I am still struggling with writing and speaking. The grammar baffles me.
I dabble in a bit of Japanese, trying to get through learning hiraganas before I jump in anything structured.
And I can mumble my way around in Spanish with a lot of non-verbal.

That is about it!

Unfortunately I only speak English, however, I've spent some time during my youth learning Spanish so I could better interact with players on a game I once played called MuOnline. The playerbase was largely Spanish and Brazilian and I enjoyed being able to communicate with them using their own language. At one point I had over 400 words learned in a word-doc I was creating, however this was many years ago and I've yet to touch up on any language learning skills. I would love to learn another language, but I fear it's becoming too late in life!

PS: Very impressive !

I can speak only two languages. Bulgarian as my native one and English. Some people say that I can speak English very good and I think I am able to.

In the future I would like to learn German and Russian. At this moment I can only swear in Russian, lol.

Hope I will learn these languages soon.

I don't know any languages fluently, but I was OK at Spanish in high school, speaking, not listening. Also, a word here and there of Korean I picked up, as well as knowing the alphabet.

whole bunch of programming languages but that's not what was meant.

Yeah, I used to be a language nerd and I find it fascinating. Nonetheless, I simply have other studies and hobbies now which are more important. They would be music playing, computer 3D art, math, science, etc..

Anyway, what good is learning languages, if you can't visit the country!

Wow, you're impressive! All I know is English and a little bit of Spanish. I don't even know how I'd begin with trying to learn a 3rd language... Spanish is tough enough! I think I'd always run into the problem of saying a word and trying to remember if it was this language or that language. LOL

Linguistics is amazing! It's really cool how the human mind processes language. You don't even have to think about translating in your head when you know the language, it's so awesome how effortless it is.

Only speak English. Its really hard to learn a language and speak it fluently. I've got a lot of respect for people who know multiple ways of speaking and understanding other than there native country
