    I learned Spanish in high school. I wanted to learn Japanese but my mom said "No, it's too hard. Learn Spanish instead." (I was homeschooled)

    I didn't retain a lick of Spanish and now I'm self-studying Japanese in my spare time. I can read basic sentences and my vocabulary is limited. I know some kanji.

    I took two courses of spanish back in highschool that I barely remember and I'm currently learning japanese through duolingo and through a free class since I plan on moving to japan after working for a couple of years after I get my bachelors and after I take a couple of small trips there to get used to the environment until I plan on moving in either 2026, 2027, or 2028. The year that I move depends on how bad my state in the US gets.

    I probably sound like a super weeb with what I just said, but no, I'm not that sort of weeb that the great papa franku used to talk about 3-4 years ago. If you want that sort of person, you should talk to my friends lmao.

    Native in English and I know enough Japanese and Spanish to be able to get around and enough Russian to introduce myself(then promtly say good bye and run off since that's all I know)
    As for computing languages I know Java best, then HTML, CSS, C++ and Python to an ok level with a small amount of JavaScript

    My native language is German. I moved to America at the age of 17. It was very difficult for me then. It's very depressing when you can't hear your native language. In order to keep up with my studies, I bought custom essays It helped me to keep up with everything.

    English is my second language, I study Physics abroad and have to use a little physics homework help to get good grades. These guys help me a lot. Spanish is my native language.

    Aside from English, I have a tenuous grasp of Spanish mainly because I wanna know when my friends are talking shit about me. Aside from that I've gotten an even smaller understanding of German, TBH I just like the country (not so much the history) been learning it on my free-time for whenever I choose to visit, not to mention it's close enough to English being that they're both Latin based, that it's not a pain in the arse to get into, just a plus.

    Actually, English is a Germanic language. Though it does have a lot of Romance influence from Latin and French (twice).
