Java, BASIC, a bit of C++, a little Python, HTML, some CSS, a small bit of Javascript, Windows batch file scripting, and Bash scripting.

It's quite impressive that you can speak in Javascript. It's tough enough to just type it.

But anyhoo, I can read and speak Vietnamese fluently, though writing isn't something I'm good at anymore. I haven't wrote a page of Vietnamese in years.

Greek (mother language)
English (obviously)
Italian (didn't get the degree, but I'm on that level) - then easily got boosted on Spanish
German (quite a few, 3 years of german lessons)
Japanese (every japanese word/phrase/grammar a fellow otaku can learn.)

Plus, various Russian words, as I get visited by them often. ;p

English (I wasn't born speaking English as in English wasn't my first language so I consider English and other Language.)
Malay
A bit of French.
A bit of Japanese.

And, I can read Arabic Letters, but that's about it...

I can speak fluent Greek, as well as a little french (only a little, my french teacher is a 'bag of wasted air', and there's something really wrong because another teacher said that about her) and limited spanish. I can understand (but not write or read) a little japanese.

I also speak um...Mandarin (semi fluently), Japanese (Just a little bit, I can understand most phrases and speak simple ones), and I'm still trying to learn French. My sister's also pushing me to learn Spanish; so far, I can only count in Spanish...up to 100 or so. xD

The only language I can write in is English, I can't read or write in the rest of the languages I know.

My voice doesn't have a non-alphanumeric parser, though, so when I come across a semicolon or something, I just make a weird noise.

Mi lernantas ĝin nu. Ĝi estas tre facila.

I can speak conversational Spanish and French. Right now, I'm trying to learn Esperanto, Russian (really confusing @_@), basic Swedish, and Japanese.

Although, the only things I can say in Swedish are:
"Hunden är där."
and
"Du gav mig inte alla delarna!" (IKEA. :P)

Used to speak German, Arabic and French semi-fluently. Still not bad at my German but other languages have diwindled. I know useful snippets of Russian, Spanish and Portugese and I have a bit of Italian because of its significance in music (accelerando!).

I have a friend who studies French & German and he's absolutely freaky the number of languages he can speak (about 5 fluently and 5 semi-fluently).

Nice. I don't mean that in a sarcastic way, mind you.

I'm learning French and Chinese. My French is absolutely horrible, though. I've had bad teachers three years in a row. Hopefully, the next year will be better.

I desperately want to learn Italian, and maybe a little German as well. I can pronounce words in German, though. I take vocal lessons, so I had to sing a lot of songs in German. Yeah. It's really useful knowing how to "speak" German when you have no idea what you're saying, but it's fun.

Yeah, the reason I want to take Italian is for musical purposes, but it sounds like a beautiful language. I know scattered words thanks to musical terms, but it's not that helpful. : P

Edit: Just wanted to say that I admire all those who know can read or write Arabic. I'm not familiar with its sound, but the text is so beautiful. It's like art.

German (obviously) and English. I'm currently learning to speak and read Russian, but it's pretty difficult.

They make us take two languages in Gymnasium in Germany. English is a required language. So it's only fitting that I would speak German and English xD I really hope I can become fluent in Russian, though, because it seems like a really neat language.

Aside from English, I did my French GCSE last year (I got a B) and am doing Spanish this year. (predicted A)

Plus, I'm working on developing a new fictional language. I have the letters down (26, like english) and I just need to work out conventional speech structure. It's working title right now is Foxpeak, as I was developing it use by Kitsune characters, but I might change that.

Isn't it required in law to write Russian in Cyrillic in Russia? If so, then you should write in Cyrillic. :3

Yes, in Russia it is required by law for things (at least, official things) to be written in Cyrillic. I just looked it up. :]

You didn't know? lolu. It's not specifically the Russian alphabet though, just like the English alphabet isn't just for English. It uses the Latin alphabet as does almost all Romance (derived from Latin) and Germanic languages. Not to mention more such as many African languages now, Celtic languages, and almost all other languages have Latin-equivalent writing systems. :]

Cyrillic is used in Bulgarian, Ukrainian, and Serbian (used to be, but I understand now that more people use the Latin alphabet) are just a few that use Cyrillic letters. Most, if not all Slavik languages have used it in the past or do still use it.

Yes, the second character is Greek, hence the 'theta'. I find it a really interesting character. I love the way it looks. But actually the one I posted isn't Greek, it's a math symbol...or something. I think it's, like, null set or something. But it's very close to the theta sign. The theta sign is a 0 slashed and I don't like it as much as a circle slashed. I really like the weird E sign as well, the one that means "sum". I forget what it's called D:

English is the only language I can speak fluently. :(

I can speak decent French, but I don't get any practise with it so I never get a chance to hone my skills. I could get by in it no problem, I'm sure, and once I do start speaking it, I pick it back up fairly quickly, but I'm far from fluent. I can read/write it much better than I speak it though.

I also know rudimentary Japanese. I can't speak it well at ALL because I don't know enough vocab but I can get by if I'm listening to it (or reading it if I have a kanji dictionary on hand).

That's all though. I'd love to learn Chinese (Mandarin, specifically) but it looks terrifying, haha. German is also crawling up my list because a lot of my friends are learning it but that's really the only interest I have in it. D: There are a few others but I'll stop there.

The part that terrifies me about learning Mandarin is actually just the pronunciation and actual speaking of it. I had a friend who accidentally signed up for Mandarin classes instead of Japanese back when we took extra language classes in high school on Saturdays and he dropped it really quickly because of how difficult it was. D: The characters I'd probably be pretty okay with--apparently a lot of them have similar or identical meanings to the Japanese ones.

I learnt English just by growing up so luckily I never really had to deal with having to learn it as a second language... so I really have no idea how hard it would be to learn German in comparison with it. XD; Even so, the language has really never interested me. I'm more interested in the fact that I might have people to practise it with, be it via IM or otherwise. But I don't think it's enough to sway me into learning it. Oh well.

Sad to admit that I'm only fluent in English. D:

I used to be fluent in Japanese, but that sorta dropped because I lost interest in the language as I decided it was unfit for my major.

I can also understand some Spanish, too. Sad to say I'm not...the best person in the world to speak it, but I'm a natural at it, so once I begin to speak it, I learn quick, and thus pick up most things in a fast manner.

Je parle un peu de francais, pero me gusta el espanol tambien, and I love writing multilingual sentences.

God yes! Same thing if you're from the South and you hear northern English.

That's because england has the most varied accents for its size, or something. You can literally go about 50 miles in any direction and find a different accent (might be exaggering, who knows. I went two miles north of where I live, in the centre of a town, and found a whole different county.)

Omg. I'm only fluent in English. ;_;
I'm taking Spanish and I'm in my second year (my school ftl since I could be in my fourth year right now otherwise). Also taking two more years of Spanish and starting French next year before college. My school only offers those two languages, and French for the last two years only. D:

I...tend to start learning languages independently, but then just slough them off because I'm lazy. x_x;

I'm also learning Esperanto right now and I really love it. I think it's a beautiful language, and I think I may become fluent quickly unlike everything else.
Also, I learn some German phrases and words from a friend of mine. xD And I know the regular present-tense indicative verb conjugation for French and German, and the verb forms of Japanese, and kana, but then again my kana knowledge sucks since I'm always forgetting them. But since I don't plan to do anything with Japanese or German yet (German maybe, actually...), I'm just leaving it alone for now.

I'm 90.5% sure I'm the only one on these forums who can speak diojiu semi-fluently. That's a Chinese dialect if anyone's wondering. By default I know a teeny bit of Mandarin, I know how to write a teeny bit too. Not enough to function, however. I also know a teeny bit of Japanese and I can read and write hiragana and katakana semi-fluently...although I won't understand what I'm reading or writing. =/

I quit taking Japanese because if I were to continue taking it, I'd be pushing my graduation date back by another year and well, it's not worth it. Eventually I want to continue learning it, if only so I can watch Xenosaga: A Missing Year without moaning and groaning about no one willing to translate the story. :(

HEY. I learned something today, hur. I've only seen that slashed O used in Danish before and that's why I got into the language (before I lost interest...). I think it looks cool. o: After my whole Danish phase, I started preferring European languages over others around the world.

The part that terrifies me about learning Mandarin is actually just the pronunciation and actual speaking of it.

Chinese even LOOKS hard. The characters look pretty complex to me compared to other Asian languages. I recognize Korean because of the little circles I seen written in it sometimes. XD

I've been learning Spanish at high school for a year and a half (and a few weeks) now, plus a few basic lessons at middle school. My teacher then didn't have any clue, though. Hopeless all round, but especially at Spanish.

I'd also like to learn Japanese, but for now it's limited to a few greetings, honorifics and some basic courtesies.

Oh, and I also speak a little Seagull.

Forgot to mention that earlier.

Yes. I can command seagulls. And they usually comply.

And, of course, I neglected the power and made one poop on an ex-friend's head. Or maybe that was just an elaborate coincidence. We may never know.

... and you'll all think I'm joking with this. But I'm not. Or am I?
(but I'm not. Or am I? No. Or...?)

I learned Spanish in school, but I've forgotten most of it due to non use. Ditto with C++ and JAVA (both computer languages XD)

I'm picking up on a very limited amount of Japanese courtesy of my anime addiction :P

I can speak English and French.

As for the French bit, I've been learning it for ten years, so it's pretty good. I still get some words messed up and such, but I guess that's normal. I can carry on a good conversation pretty well though, so I guess that's what counts.

Spanish is my second language. I'm currently taking my fourth year of it in school. I would say that although in-class lessons have helped a lot, it helps even more to use it outside of the classroom (speaking, listening, writing...).

I have plenty of opportunities to use it. About twenty percent of the population in my town speaks Spanish as their first language; there is a sizable community of Mexican immigrants here. Although the majority of the immigrant-students catch onto English quick, the adults generally have a tougher time.


Also, I have a question for those here who know multiple languages. When you dream, do you dream only in a particular language, or does it change from time to time? I've had some Spanish dreams, but they occur very, very rarely.

Studying GSCE French at the moment. I'm not exactly fabulous with my grammar and I often forget words, but I've been told I've got a pretty good accent. ^^" I also dabbled in Spanish for a few months a couple of years ago, but I can't remember much of that.

I can understand bits and pieces of Japanese. Not whole phrases or the like. Just the occasional word here and there, like onii-san and onee-san. I also know the the names of all twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac thanks to Naruto. I also know a tiny bit of Spanish, and hello in French.

Mandarin Chinese, though I have a terrible English accent in it and most people think it's even more skewed by my Taiwanese accent. I can speak and converse fluently in Chinese, but I can't read or write.

Japanese and French are two other languages that I'm semi-fluent in.
And if you count English, that too.

I've taken three years of Spanish at high school, but I wouldn't say I am fluent in it. I could translate mostly, but I couldn't have a coherent conversation with anyone. All I remember is how to conjugate verbs, to be honest.

I'm still learning English because even though it's my first language, and I've been using it most of my life, everyone still has to take classes for it. Especially me because I'm an English major. 8D

And I've learned Japanese at my local Kumon Learning Center for four years which was pretty helpful even though I was primarily learning vocabulary in order to understand it. Now, it's much easier for me to learn it in my college class (since language classes in college are very fast-paced). I'm currently taking my second semester of Japanese at college which would mean I should know all the Japanese an elementary student should know by the time I'm done.

Despite of myself being Chinese, I only know English since I was born in the US and never got the chance to learn it. Maybe someday along with Japanese.

In terms of computing languages, I know Visual Basic (including VB.net and RealBasic), HTML and I'm trying to teach myself Objective-C so I can make some native Cocoa applications on Mac OS X.

I can speak Cantonese if necessary, but mostly to family only, and I never got past basic numbers for writing and reading... I've taken lessons in Japanese and American Sign Language, but I forget everything now. I don't do well with languages unless I keep practicing and using it a lot, but I wish I stuck with the ASL, it was pretty neat.
