    English is my mothertongue, but I'm studying for German and French GCSEs, and I'm gonna learn Spanish in a year or two as well

      I am fluent in English and British Sign Language.

      Can also speak Spanish but not fluently as English and BSL.

        I'm monolingual. The only other language I have any cause to learn is Japanese.
        I actually put some effort into Esperanto for a short time, but I have this strange habit of suddenly dropping projects for no reason.

        English was my first language, and I know bits and pieces of Spanish and French. Actually, I can spell the French stuff, but probably pronounce it wrong. ._.

        As for Spanish, I just have forgotten most of it, though I didn't know much in the first place. You should have heard me and my best friend yelling at each other in Spanish in public (just to confuse people, yeah). It made absolutely no sense to either of us because we made up half of the words, and the rest were just random Spanish words we knew.

        I am monolingual by speaking English. However, I can understand some Spanish, but only from what I learned in class or a tiny grain of slang xD

          English mostly; though I understand some Italian and French. I'm trying to pick up Japanese right now :3 Sadly lessons were cancelled for this summer semester but I've signed up for the fall semester :3

          Seeing as I come from a fairly Hispanic background, I do speak fluent Spanish. English is my first language, though. I want to learn either French or Japanese now.

          The only language that I'm fluent in speaking is English. While I can't speak or write it all that well, I can read a majority of written French (as in, if I were to read a book in French, I'd still be able to follow along, but might miss some of the details).

            I am fluent in English, I can speak a small amount of French, basic amount of Spanish, and a tiny amount of Croatian and Japanese. None of these languages I can speak fluent; you'd have to speak to me quite slowly so I can grasp the words you are saying.

            I took about four years of German. I hardly remember any of it now. Never had a chance to practice it once I got out of school, so yeah. I wish I'd kept up on it even outside of school. It was fun to learn.

            Too lazy to learn anything else, sadly.

                I can speak English and Albanian fluently, and I know enough Spanish to get into a short conversation with someone.

                I can speak English and Mandarin. I know a bit of French, but it's terrible. I've been wanting to learn German for 6 years now (that hasn't gone anywhere), and I'd like to learn Cantonese so I can talk to my girlfriend in Cantonese (and her parents too, awkward to have Chinese 'in-laws' but can't communicate to them >.<)

                Currently, I speak English only, but I'm learning Spanish as part of my graduation requirement.

                  I speak English as my first language and Afrikaans as my second. And I can understand quite a bit of German and Dutch

                    Aside from my native dialect, English is the second.

                    English and Hindi mainly. But I know some other regional languages of India you guys wouldn't have heard about. ;_;

                    My main language is Dutch and living in a trilingual country, I'm supposed to know French and German. My French is decent (I read my manga in French) but my German is reduced to understanding written language (that's what happens when you don't keep practicing).

                    I also studied Latin. Thanks to watching so many anime, I've managed to pick up a few words in Japanese (including katakana, hiragana and some kanji). I wouldn't mind actually studying the language. Seems like fun studying something that doesn't use the roman script.

                    English is my first language. I know quite a bit of Spanish and Japanese but I am far from fluent in either language. ; I would like to continue to study Japanese but I don't really have the time right now to focus on it.

                    I took five years of French in high school, so I used to be pretty fluent in that (though not fluent fluent as in "is French", just fluent for what a natural talent and five years of education can provide). Other than that, just plain ol' English for me!

                        I speak English and German fluently. I prefer English, though.

                        Also, I took French for 4 years and Spanish for 3 years in class. I love learning new languages.

                          English is my first language and I took three years of Spanish in high school, so I'm semi-fluent in that. That's about it, though.

                          I speak Danish and English fluently. Danish is kinda obvious, considering it's my native language, and as I haven't ever lived in any other country, it's not really something you just forget :p English has been a mandatory subject in school for about 6 years now, although most of it has been self-taught through books, movies and the internet obv.

                          I also know some German, since it's also a subject at school, although not mandatory. Can't say it's really a language I enjoy learning though :/
