Well, I know English, of course. :P
I've been trying to teach myself Japanese, and I only know a few words.
I know like 7 words in Spanish.
I'll hopefully be able to learn German. I know only a few words.
And I'll be taking French next year. :P

My first language was Spanish, but I've long forgotten it since I quit speaking it around age 4. I'm trying very hard to pick it up again, though, because I want to be able to understand my family. When I met them a long while ago, I couldn't understand a thing, and since I'm set to inherit a ranch in Spain, it'd be good for me to learn.

I also speak Japanese, but not fluently. I'm pretty good at it, but anybody who speaks knows that learning to actually write it is incredibly hard. I picked it up back around 1992 when a friend asked me to join a Japanese Ragnarok Online server.

I used to speak Hmoob (Hmong) back in grade school, because a lot of the Asians in CA are Hmoob and Mien. I stopped some years ago, though, because after a while I really didn't have the patience for it anymore. I can still understand a little bit, though.

And now I'm picking up on Korean, mainly because a lot of the MMOs out there are Korean, and I like to BETA test.

And, lastly, I'm learning Italian, because my fiance is Italian and we'd like to go to Italy one day and maybe even live there (if not Spain).

i also learned from my grandpa how to say "i love you" and "i love beer" in danish, which is the best language ever.
Denmark. Danish. Danes. There is so much you could say about this topic! Did you know that it takes a danish child more time to learn how to speak than children growing up learning other languages? Reason could be this (quote from my grandfather): "Danish is not a language but a sound!"

Still I love Denmark, danes and danish! Awesomeness ;)

(And I agree, it´s the best language ever!)

lol, quite interesting. I'll have to learn Danish some day, considering that I'm part Danish.

As an update of sorts, I'd like to say that since I last posted, I've learned more and more regarding how to write Japanese. I'm really good at Katakana, OK at kanji, and poor at hiragana.

My frist language is English, but I do know a bit of French. I should know a LOT more given I took it throught school, but it just wouldn't stick for some reason. I know enough to get by if I were ever in a Frech-only speaking area of the world, but I'm afraid I would be butchering tenses and the finer details like the masculin / feminine-ization of items.

Let's see the Languages i know....

Well all i know are English and Filipino. Filipino is the language of the Philippines so don't get it confused with other countries. I plan to learn some Japanese but that will be in the near future.

Other languages i plan to learn is French. It is the Language of Love which may help me impress a girl.:lol:

The language of the Philippines is very Vast. We have over 70 dialects in my country but we basically speak Filipino and English. I also see a LOT of Americans, Europeans, Japanese, Chinese etc. in some parts of the Philippines so for me they're normal.


Here's me saying Filipino words(don't worry there's a translation)

I know English, and only English. D:

I definitely plan on learning Spanish, though. I live in Southern California (USA) so it's a pretty important thing to know.

I can speak a few languages:

I can fluently speak my first language, Which is obviously English. Only rarely used words in english can confuse me.

I can speak quite a lot of Spanish and French and a couple words of my Nations native language, Being Manx, But unfortunatly this is classed as a official dead language as the last mother tongue alive died recently.

This is quite an interesting thread.

First language is Spanish for me. I was born in Mexico. I can still speak, read and even write in Spanish, the problem is the accents that are written, I never quite learned them. Second language is English, I've been here for about 10 years now, if I recall correctly. I can read, write and speak English well enough, I believe.

I hope to learn Japanese some day. ;_; I can only say a few words in Japanese. And I think that's it for me.

I can speak English and Welsh fluently (although not as fluently as I'd like).

I also intend to learn Japanese, a desire that has arisen after watching all those animes (if I could find the time and will to do so).
