Hmm: mother tongue English, near-fluent Yorkshire dialect, high-school level French and Irish, a few dozen words in Hebrew and "coffee please, I'm dying here" in half a dozen other European languages...

English is my native language. I speak German almost fluently. I speak far less French, and very little Japanese. A few small phrases in Nepalese. Only a couple of words in Mandarin Chinese. Greek (ancient, I think) is phonetic so it's easy to read, unlike English... theta for instance makes a "th" sound and everything else in the alphabet is obvious too. (I don't actually understand Greek though). And I speak enough Spanish to take someone's order at Burger King.

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).
English.

Plus a very little German from high school.

[QUOTE=Narvius;11251]I was curious:

English (native), Spanish (Mexican variety, enough to get beat up), French (textbook with good accent), and Latin (can read well).

English and whatever German my high school teacher and 2 visits to Germany a couple of years back managed to teach me: not very much - definitely not enough - but probably more than I think.

Besides English, I have conversational Castillano spanish (went to Spain + school), but that's getting a bit dirty since I now live in L.A. and the Mexican dialect is everywhere...

Finnish of course, fluent English and pretty good Swedish, Finland being a bilingual country.

Wow, we have lots of polylingual people here. Myself I know English, British, Australian, some New Zealandish, some French, enough Swiss-German to get around (barely) in Switzerland, and a couple languages no one has ever heard of due to growing up in the South Pacific.

English and 2 years worth of high school-Spanish.

That is, given a bilingual dictionary and infinite time, I can understand Spanish.
