    How many languages can you speak and understand well? State the languages you know. For me, I am pretty good at 2 languages, English and Mandarin.

    What language would you like to learn if possible? I would like to learn Japanese, so that I can play Jap games w/o having to wait for a translation or English release. Besides, Jap is a beautiful language IMO.

    Perfectly fluently? Spanish (duh), English, French, Italian and Portuguese. I also have some notions of modern Greek, and I studied Latin and Greek a lot too, but I obviously can't speak them...

    I can speak English fluently, as I'm born and raised in America (Though, I am southern - got an accent and speak with a lot of slang, but I speak english - as you can tell since I'm posting this message in english).

    I'm working on Spanish, I've got a couple of months of Spanish 1 and am doing pretty well.
    I can not understand very well, unless it is spoken slowly, as Spanish-speakers talk very fast and it's hard for me, being a beginner, to comprehend.
    I really should of started learning a different language, such as Spanish, when I was a little bit younger.
    It's said that it's easier to learn a different language when you are younger...but I guess 4 more years of Spanish in high school, and I'll be able to hold a conversation in Spanish.
    I think right now, if you're American, it's good to know the Spanish language, as more and more Spanish-speaking immigrants (mainly Mexicans) are coming into America...

    Korean and English, although Korean is my mother tongue I'm better, as in I have a wider vocabulary, at English because I've lived in Britain since I was four.
    I did French and Welsh for 5 years in school but I've forgotten most even though it's only been a year or so.. I wasn't that good back then either so meh.
    I know a few Japanese words and phrases aswell from anime [​IMG]

    English and Finnish.

    Have studied German and Swedish but wouldn't describe myself as fluent.

    Have some understanding of too many languages to count.
