              Several forms of English, kliene Deutsche, I took two years of Spanish and it immediatly escaped me. I need to refresh but I just don't do Spanish well.

                English, a little Spanish (can read it better than can speak), a little Swahili but not much (lived in Kenya for 5 yrs.)

                I wish my grandparents on my mothers side had lived long enough to teach me Hungarian but they didn't and my mother only knows a little

                Thanks for looking!!

                  Just English really.

                  Can understand a bit of written French.

                  Latin I did in School so there is a bit knocking around inside the old memory still.

                  At the moment I am trying to improve my Irish big time.

                  So far it has been an enjoyable experience, unlike school, which was a nightmare!

                        Mother tongues : spanish and french
                        Read both languages as well as english and italian. Speak and write all of the above, with various degrees of fluency.
                        Have learnt German up to college - still can read it (even if a dictionary could come in handy from time to time), would be laughed at if I tried to speak or write it. I can undertstand what is going on in front of written dutch or portuguese.

                          I know German, French and Russian, and of course Scandinavian languages are no problem. The older I get, the more I forget. In the end, I will only command the language of heroes and glory, er that is Swedish!

                              English, job-site Spanish, household Thai, and war-buff German.
                              I could probably survive in any of those three foreign countries if left on my own, but by no means would I say I "speak" those languages. I took a total of 4 1/2 years of German in junior high through junior college but failed so miserably that that's what it took to satisfy my very basic foreign language requirement for my chemistry degree. I probably know the most Spanish because of pure exposure: "Aguadar herremientas, vamanos para la casa!"
