    Well for me I speak/read in English. This helps me in life to play video games, read books, and communicate with other fellows, I learned this AWESOME language when I was 4-5(lol don't call me stupid for learning it at an old age). Well I use English for everything. I knew how to read Hebrew(learned when I was 12-13) I never knew how to speak in it. I now can't read for shit in Hebrew I forgot everything... I know how to speak in Russian(learned it when I was 2) I only use it at home to speak to my parents and my relatives(no video game is ever in russian) I learned how to read in Russian when I was 14(yep this year). I took russian class for Foreign language this year because I already knew how to speak in it but not read in it. I didn't take spanish because I suck at it major balls I took it last year.... So in all things:

    English
    Russian

    Don't call my stupid because I learned English when I was 4-5... I also understand Ukrainian if they speak is slowly.

    British English is just English. You only prefix the English with a nationality when talking about other countries like America.

    How do you not know how to speak in Russian? The teachers in Uzbekistan teach in Russian...

    And Russian is not a alphabet. I think you mean Cyrillic.

    I understand Spanish perfectly (being a native of Mexico) but have some difficulty forming sentences in Spanish, orally or in writing. Its weird.

    I took 3 years of French in high school, so I can understand some of it and write it too.

    Being multilingual is a big benefit even if you don't travel because you can understand music and other media that is not in your language.

    I'm very fluent in English since I grew up in the States. I also can speak Chinese fluently by am mostly illiterate (I only know up to a first-graders level for reading and writing).
    Took three years of French in high school but I suppose I forgot everything.

    Most people don't know what Cyrillic is so it is easier for everyone. Also, I left the country when I was like 10 years old. My parents taught me how to speak the language and write it.

    I'm perfectly fluent in speaking and writing English and Spanish. I'm currently learning Latin, and plan to study French, Italian, and German. Maybe Japanese for the lulz.

    English! Know very little French and .00001% Chinese (chinese restaurant near where i live, chinese owners, I'm a regular so yeah o_o)

    Uncle came from California and taught me at age 10, and i was interested so i studied a lot. I regret not learning more languages. =(

    Knowing English, I can play VG's without waiting the Spanish version to come out though I wish I knew enough Japanese to watch anime/non-export games from Japan. ;O

    English Pros:

    Tourists (Springs Breakers) come and my manager pays me a bit more for translating
    VG's

    Sadly all the cat boy knows is English.
    Although everyone I know thinks I know Japanese...to this very day I still don't understand why.

    Spanish is my native tongue.

    Learned English fairly quickly and I have no accent. I talk English fluently. Write English fluently.
