Languages

I was curious:
What languages do you speak?

I speak german and polish fluently (bilingual family), english (rather) good and I'm learning russian (seems kinda weird at the first glance, but it's actually an awesome language. It's probably easier for me because I speak polish).

German (native), English (fluent), some rusty French, translate Latin and hence take good guesses at Italian / Spanish.

Speak: English (native), French (badly, heavy accent)

Read: English (fluent), French (well enough to cope with legalese, science, and news). I'll try anything else if I have an English translation in parallel (why not learn by osmosis?)

English (native), Japanese (maybe jr. high level), Mandarin (elementary school level, can speak but can't read), German (like a tourist) and I was learning Czech, but I think I'm gonna give up because it's relatively useless.

Currently I'm working on improving my Japanese and German to fluency.

English (native), French and German (rusty and not fluent), Latin and a little Russian (book learnt). Not much chance to practice in Australia, sadly.

English, Portuguese

I can read a bit of Dutch and used to be able to have basic conversations.

I can read Latin with some proficiency but haven't done so for a while, so I'm really rusty.
