(Pardon for the title)

Anyway, I'm not sure if anything like this is open but,

Can you speak other languages?

Me, I speak English, Spanish, Japanese, and Tagalog. *points to title*

I can sorta speak Japanese, but not a lot. Tagalog for me is the easiest to learn. I know the basics of Spanish, so I can sorta speak it. English, I speak most often

Moderators, I'm sorry if there is a thread like this. >.< Please close if you must.

I speak Spanish (native language), English and French.

I don't really want to learn anything else. Too lazy. =P
I can't even speak my invented languages. XD

I speak English, French and Arabic.
I believe it's useful to speak other languages, especially if you travel a lot, although English is international.

There was a thread similar to this, but I think it's dead...

I speak English fluently, German like a kid (I've been studying it for... almost four years now?), and I know a few random Japanese words and phrases. And I can count to twenty in Spanish.

I really like learning German, so much that I'm seriously debating making it my major. German class tomorrow~ 8D

I can only talk in Spanish, German and English. I haven't been taught french or japanese, however a lecturer at college said if I want to learn japanese, he will help me after lessons are finished.

The only language I can speak and write fluently in is English. But, I know enough German to understand the general message when somebody talks to me in it, responding is a different story though XD And I know small amounts of French and Japanese.

I respect people who can, it's quite amazing. Maybe I just don't have the application to learn another language. I used to learn Japanese through school, but since year 8 I didn't pick it back up ;)

Yes, I can! Learning languages is fun (but also hard). I go kinda crazy whenever I don't understand what people are saying^^

My mother tongue is German and I also speak English (DUH!).
I've learned French and Latin at school, but now that I've been out of school for a while I don't really remember much anymore. I also take Japanese classes in my free time and I actually think my Japanese is better than my French and Latin...never thought that would happen xD
But there are still a lot things I need to learn in Japanese, especially Kanji ;;

If I had enough time, I would try to study as many languages as possible :)

The same, we study in the same school so XD. I'm too lazy to learn, I hate French but can talk it. And no, I don't create any languaje, there are better ways to pass the time, right? XD

The only language I can speak fluently is English. I can understand Spanish and Tagalog; actually speaking those languages is another matter entirely. I've largely forgotten most of my knowledge of the Japanese language.

I speak English and Vietnamese fluently, but am currently learning Indonesian at school.
I know Japanese, but only what I pick up from anime, so it's not like I can speak a whole sentence in Japanese to a person.

English is the only language I can speak fluently. I'm currently studying French in school, and I can understand Tagalog, but not speak it. Well, I can, but I haven't been able to do so fluently since I moved out of the Philippines years ago. And I know some words in Japanese and Thai, but not much. And most of the words I know in those languages are quite random.

I've never enjoyed learning languages, and tend to forget what I learned pretty quickly, so no. I don't know any other languages - English is the only one.

The only language I was allowed to take in school was French (it was compulsary anyway). I failed because (no offense to those who speak French) I really can't stand the way it sounds, and it annoys me, and I can't get a grasp of it. I would have preferred German, but we weren't allowed to choose. It was simply a case of half the pupils were made to do French, the other half German, and there was no personal choice in the matter.

I'm fluent in Finnish, English and Swedish and I'm pretty good at German (I've gone through most of the grammar now so it's mostly a matter of extending my vocabulary now) and I can speak really bad French. Yay for me, I can speak five languages! =D (although I honestly don't know if you can actually call my gibberish "French". =P) My favorite foreign language (which includes English, by the way) would probably be German. It's just so awesome, and oddly, I make less mistakes in German than I do in Swedish although I've spoken Swedish all my life. Finnish has always been the dominant one of the two for me. :x

Japanese (native) and English (secondary).
I don't even want to remember when I was 3, new in Hong Kong, and couldn't communicate with anybody.

Also some Chinese. Tried French and Spanish but failed badly.

I'm fluent in English. I also took one year of Spanish so I know how to hablo espanol (speak Spanish), but right now no hablo espanol because I dont like espanol

I'm better in Japanese than I am in Spanish. Chotto Nihongo ga dekiru (I can speak a little Japanese). I actually can type a lot more than speak because I barely get any speech practice because no one in my house wants anything to do with helping me. T_T
I contribute to the Serebiiforums Japanese club with new words, help and kanji tips. So far I probably know 300 or 400+ and surprisingly, a lot of it was very easy to learn
Nihongo ga daisuki node, tanoshii desu - becasue I like the Japanese language, it's fun. (I know I messed up somewhere. Was na supposed to be added after daisuki and before node? @_@)

I speak English and Spanish fluently, I do an okay job with Portuguese, which I guess goes hand in hand with Spanish. I know the slightest bit of Tagalog, thanks to frequenting another forum with a few members that speak it. I all but blow at Japanese in any form that isn't verbal and even then I could stand to know a lot more.

I was brought up speaking Portuguese in my house, except it's not really portuguese..it's like, the trashy portuguese/spanish variant that only people in my family could understand. xD

Aside from that and English, right now I'm taking latin in school. Latin being..probably the most useless language to learn because no one..has really spoken it for 800 years ._.

The language I know fluently is english. However, I learned french in school and I know enough to hold a short conversation :> That, and arabic.

Languages are a lot of fun to learn <3 I would like to be able to speak the two I mentioned more fluently eventually.

I speak English (it's my native language), and I've been speaking French since I was nine (a Québecois dialect/accent, not a European one). I consider myself fluent in French, although the accent sometimes needs a bit of fine tuning XD Sometimes I can kind of understand a little bit of Spanish, since French and Spanish are very much alike in terms of words and pronunciations.

The only thing I frequently use is: Filipino (Native, oh and btw. Filipino and Tagalog is different, Kuro. ;D) and English (I never used it, until I went in Singapore.)
I know little: Japanese (I can count up to 8), Mandarin (I can speak and understand it.), Spanish (Well, all those days bored and staring at Dora the Explorer really helped me), French (Fantina [The Gym Leader] Made me do it. xD) and a little little bit of Malay (Hello, Singapore is a close to Malaysia.)

So, lemme count how many language I know. yi...er...liang...san...si...wu...liu, yep that's seven.

I speak Dutch Fluently, since it's my native language. I can also speak English very well. French a bit, but I don't like that language very much.
Latin but since it's a dead language I can only read and translate it. XD
I can also speak a little german. I've been studying German for almost 4 years now, but it's still hard. T_T It resembles Dutch a lot, but still...

I can understand a few words of Japanese thanks to Anime, but I don't count that as really knowing a language. -.- Although I want to study it, same for Italian.
