    Lol, I was inspired to create this thread after listening to a lot of Spanish songs/music! List up the languages you're fluent in or would love to learn (if you speak more than one of course). List the fluency level too! This is going to be fun. Ok, I'm first.

    . English (American) - Fluent (learned it when I was 7)
    . Vietnamese - Fluent/Okay (I don't get some phrases sometimes)
    . French - Okay (studied 7 yrs, can read, speak)
    . Spanish - Basic/Beginning (needs a Spanish tutor)
    . Chinese (Mandarin) - Very basic
    . Italian - really really basic

    I'd love to learn Spanish more! I think the language is sexy, cute and fun. And some Latin guys are sexy too!
    I'd want to learn Chinese and maybe Japanese second but it just looks too hard, urh !! icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif

    Spanish - native language
    English - got the handle of it
    Italian and Portuguese - can understand everything they say or write, probably because of the similarity with Spanish.

    English - native language.

    Spanish - proficient, but it doesn't come naturally. I never studied it.

    French - Proficient. Studied it for years, but I don't get to practice it.

    I can pick up a bit of Italian because of the similarities with Spanish and French.

    Along with my attempts at English, Hablo español et le français prendra le reste de ma vie.

    I admire you guys with so many idioms to work with floating through your minds.

    English--native language
    French--used to have basic ability, have since lost most of it
    Fortran--fluent
    Python--fluent
    Java--forgotten it, but could pick it up again easily

    Yeah, you know you're a nerd when the majority of the languages you know are programming languages...

    Previous thread: What languages can you speak?

    English is my first language.
    French is my second language. I started learning when I was 12 but I completed by university studies in French, and I currently work as a French translator.
    My Mandarin is quite good; I majored in it in university then moved to China and did intensive Chinese for 2 years before moving back to the States. I also translate Mandarin.
    I know enough Spanish to be able to read it pretty well, and to get the gist of a conversation, but I would never say that I speak it.

    I know phrases/tidbits in Danish, Dutch, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, and Portuguese. I am a language NERD and I would collect phrases and language-learning books when I was younger. Now it's difficult enough to maintain my French and Mandarin that I pretty much devote most of my time to that.

    In order of proficiency-

    English-native speaker
    Spanish-fluent, can speak, read, write easily but non native technically. learned all throughout high school
    Tagalog-semifluent. Can speak a little and understand somewhat but that's about it. Even though my parents are from the Philippines they didn't raise me fully in the language. I would reply back in English most of the time.
    Mandarin- trying to learn on my own. Only in beginning stages but have a good grasp on tones and vocabulary.

    Surprisingly I was able to comprehend Spanish pretty quickly (grammar, conjugations, vocabulary, speaking skills, etc.) more so than Tagalog. Has anyone ever experienced this? where you're able to learn other languages much more easily than the one your family speaks? I was able to learn Spanish fluently in 4 years yet I still struggle with even the basics of Tagalog even though I hear it everyday.

    English - Fluent

    Spanish - somewhat conversational

    French and German - can understand and read, but limited speech

    Basically, I can get by in any European hotel, restaurant, bar, train station, shop, etc, but can't really carry on a conversation to any extent. I wish I spoke French better.

    Fluent in English and Spanish.
    I guess I can understand some Portuguese and Italian due to their similarity to Spanish. I'd love to learn how to speak Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, Italian, and French.
