    Was curious to know how many people spoke more than one language here and which ones. List what you speak, and tell which one is your native tongue.

    I speak English (native), French, Spanish, with Portuguese on the way.

    English, profanity, and sarcasm, plus a few extra mostly dead ones.

    I'm fluent in English, French (native) Spanish (native). With that, I've never felt the need to learn another language, although I've started taking some German lessons online, but it's mostly for fun (I'm not sure "fun" is the right word to use with "learn German", however).
    I also understand enough Portuguese to read a magazine or a book with near full comprehension, but I cannot speak a word. I can also understand some Italian, since it's so close to French and Spanish.

    Forget about French. Skip it and go directly for Bad French.

    Dutch: C2 - native
    English: B2 - high professional
    French: B1 - professional
    Spanish: A2 - intermediate
    German: A1 - beginner

    But 100% of Flemish people (45 and younger) are minimum trio-langual, French is mandatory in school from 10 years on and English from 12 years on for all students.

    English and basic German. Us Americans have it really bad for languages. Our language programs in high school and college are horrible, and we can't immerse ourselves in that language unless we want to hop a plane to Europe or risk being stabbed in a Spanish neighborhood.

    English, Portuguese, and Spanish. All three are my native languages.

    Very Basic French. Learning Mandarin at the moment, and trying hard to stick to it.

    English
    Arabic
    Spanish

    Looking back I'm so glad I took 4 years of Spanish in high school. Although It is limited I can make casual conversation and it's really enjoyable.

    It depends, I studied French at the New School, and had an awesome Professor. Likewise had great instructors in Spanish in high school and undergrad. Spanish is quite prevelant in the U.S., and Quebec is right next door if you'd like to immerse yourself in French.

    Understand, but have can barely hold a conversation: Vietnamese and Early Modern English (when the English stop speaking French to Willie Shakespeare)
    Rudimentary: Middle English (Chaucer), Japanese and Klingonese. I know what "petaQ" means.:D:p
