    I'm just sorta interested in what languages some GBATemp users can speak, it would be nice to see how much diversity there is here language-wise.

    We did have the thread a few years ago (no idea why my memory stretches back that far but it does)

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/the-language-you-speak.63395/

    More recently we had another kind of variation on the theme

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/do-you-feel-uncomfortable-with-a-foreign-speaking-your-language.341738/

    Anyway I can definitely respect languages as being something worth learning, probably in preference to an awful lot of other stuff. Equally I find comparing and contrasting languages to be quite interesting. That said science and technology research/discussion (the main things I care to learn about) are largely conducted in English and that is probably what I would have to call my native tongue.

    I speak English (native language), and I'm working on speaking Japanese. I'm looking to take some Japanese classes as I've been teaching myself for a year or so.

    Belgium has 3 official Languages:
    - Flemish (Flanders)(Same as Dutch but here and there some difference (Compare it as UK-English and US-English))
    - Walloons (Walloon)(Same as French but here and there some difference (Compare it as UK-English and US-English))
    - German (German Region in the Walloon part of Belgium)

    I speak Flemish :) , English, German and a little French

    Polish, English and Portuguese... I took German for two years, but meh.

    One should be wary of trying to juggle too many languages. It's better to be fluent in a few rather than being so-so in many.

    Oh, god. Babbel is like a replica of Duolingo that you have to pay for.


    Edit: For some odd reason I can't quote Shiemi?

    Japanese is hella difficult to learn imo, but I'm still trying anyways.

    That's why I'm mainly focusing on German first, then moving onto another one afterward.

    I can read the topic, so I guess that's the one language I can speak.

    Is there anyway you could tell? I don't see anything particularly wrong with that phrase... Most of the time when google translate messes up I think it's with cases and adjective endings, but "Welche Sprachen sprechen Sie" is pretty normal german afaik

    That is true but even then the average person not used to the language would never know and if you did know you could just claim it was a typo
