    I can speak English (duh) and I've been learning Italian on my own.

    English, and I've taken Japanese for two years. I'm not extremely good at it, but it was enough to get me by over there. I'm thinking about minoring in it in college. Eh.

    I'm a native English speaker. I've been taking Hebrew for 13 years, so I'm pretty fluent.

    I'm a native speaker of English, fluent to the point that I don't know what I'm talking about sometimes.

    I've studied Spanish for nearly half my life, and I like to think I'm pretty good with it, at least in a casual use sense, though I still wouldn't consider myself fluent.

    I have around two years formal study of Japanese, which means I speak...very little, but I probably wouldn't die immediately if I were stuck in Japan or something. I understand it better than I can use it, but even that's far short of being really useful for anything outside of reading manga raws, at this point.

    I really want to learn more, too. I'm not sure what, though. Possibly Polish. Then maybe I'll go back and use my Spanish as a base to learn more romance languages. I'm a real language bug...I think things like this are fun. Creepy, huh?

    English was my first language (I think) and I'm okay with Korean but can't really read it (okay, I can't read it at all). I want to learn Japanese (like everybody else) and I'm thinking of taking French for high school.

    as people reply, it'd be interesting to know where you're from if you don't already mention it. i think it's interesting to know where certain parts of the world are more fluent in more tongues. it is a shame here in america we like to believe everyone in the world speaks english, but obviously this thread easily proves learning multiple languages is not uncommon elsewhere.

    anywaaaaaaaaaaay, i've studied spanish for 4 years in high school, but i probably could not speak much at all with a native speaker, though i guess my reading/writing is dcent. :( i also know basic french grammar and some fun idioms (ca va pas non!?) :lol:

    so what's the best way to learn a language? it's a tough thing to do if you're not surrounded by it 'cuz you can't learn all the nuances etc. of real daily usage, which is hard to do with self-study.

    and was it true that the late pope knew something like 85 languages? :o

    He knew 14.

    And as for me... I can speak a LITTLE French (Let's say that I'd not survive if left in Corsica), ALOT of Spanish (I could survive), and English is my primary.

    Immerse yourself. For all the years I&#39;ve studied Spanish, my biggest jumps in skill have been a couple summers ago, when I worked with a guy who didn&#39;t speak any English, and the last few months while I&#39;ve been living here. If immersion isn&#39;t possible, watching kids shows and other programs in the language of your choice seems to help as well. Just keep in mind that people on TV don&#39;t always talk exactly like people in real life.

    I speak English and Spanish. Just got back from Spain&#33; I live in Ohio, US though. Only two languages for me. I know such minimal Japanese that it&#39;s not even worth mentioning. I am taking some in college this year though.

    Now, why not blow this old topic back to life?

    I'm native Estonian. Besides that, I know English (semi-sucky spelling skills and semi-fluent talking from the years on net). Also, I know Germanese, which I learned thanks to... Japanese animes, which I watched daily on RTL2 + 3 years of study in school. I can hold daily conversations in it, and understand what people are writing (once again, I lack of spelling skills).

    I'll keep my hopes up to learn more in near future.
