Posted:I'm okay with German... wink (bloody complicated lingo that is) - familiar with English (that's not as hard) - and then my knowledge drops free falling to a few expressions in roman languages (mostly swearing), Thai and Indonesian (just saying "hello" and standard phrases)... Currently I am interested in Hindi and Russian... Bought myself some language training programs... "Rseta Stone" (no commericals here) wink Anybody has got experience with them?

Posted:Vale, Hablo Espanol, porque lo estoy estudiando en la universidad...

My first language is English...

je peut parle un petit peu de francais... and can manage alright whenever I'm there, but I get it mixed up with spanish quite often.

I can understand a bit of Italian (Living with Italian girls at the moment helps)

The next language I want is Deutsch. it's the only way I'll be able to communicate properly with my girlfriend's family... smile

I dream in English mostly, but if I've been speaking a lot of spanish, that's the language my dreams come in... When I can remember them...

Maybe one day soon, they'll come in German...

Posted:main language: English
can get by in: French (with the aid of a lot of gessturing)
can buy necessary items in (but not really make conversation in) Greek (very rusty) Chinese (improving due to practise: but I can only read about 5 characters) Italian (much better at reading it than speaking it)
can just about understand written Latin (to the extent of reading gravestones and getting the gist of someone's life: very rusty)

Posted:Grow up in Basque and Spanish. Im also kind of fluent in English. Well; in spoken english cos my writing skills still crap.
I also studied a bit of french and german, but cant remenber any.
Also studied latin in high school. Pretty easy to understand when reading it, but no idea of writing or speaking.
And I kind of understand Portuguese and Italian, (if the accent isnt hard), at least enough to go around those countries and be able to get lost.
Upps!! And I also kind of understand french basque, but just sometimes,..

Amazed of how many people is into Japanese!! I would love to learn some!

Posted:I'm pretty fluent in gibberish and nonsense, does that count??



I can understand German if I'm reading it or it's being spoken to me but I can't speak it back anymore. I might get a bit more practice if I get the job I went for this week though as it involves a fair amount of travel over there.



I've always fancied giving Spainish a try as well.

Posted:My first language is English, but I can speak a little French (did GCSE french a few years back so I know enough to generally get by but I can't remember how to conjugate all the irregular verbs), a little Spanish (GCSE again, but I found it easier for some reason than French, plus my sister lives in Spain so it's handy) plus I can understand a fair bit of Creole but can't speak it.
