German and english fluent. I had 3 years of french and 5 of latin at school, but i forgot a lot. Right now i’m learning russian. In future i want to make my french fluent and i’ll try to learn arabic, at least the basics. And maybe some more romanic languages like spanish, that should be the easiest part of this list.

@Brandon By Blackfoot do you mean the Native American tribe? My great grandmother was full Blackfoot, so if that’s what your referring to it makes me curious because everyone claims to be native american but i hardly hear the claim of being Blackfoot such as my 1/8th of it. I love their lore and everything ill try to find you some good references.

@staringstars yep, that Blckfoot, I’ve got some Blackfoot in my family so I want to learn how to speak it at some point, it’s a beautiful language but a little on the difficult side to read…such looooooong words

Can speak, write and read both English (United states) and Spanish (South America, El Salvador to be specific). I made it that specific because Spanish in South America varies so much. For example many countries, like mine, most of Central America, Argentina, etc. use “vos” instead of “tu” (you) so that changes all of the verbs and the way you say things.

Anyway, I feel so blah now with only two :/ even though in the US knowing english and spanish is a huge advantage as most people don’t see the need to expand their ability to speak anything besides english.

Portuguese (from Portugal; native), fluent in English, German and French (though still learning in school), can have a conversation in Spanish, though I’d need to spend some weeks in Spain before being fluent again, and I learned Russian for a while, but forgot some of it already (want to take classes again when I’m in college).

Wow, it’s exciting that some many people here know so many languages! What about also explaining why you know them?

For instance:
– learned Portuguese bc I live in Portugal (duh xD)
– learned English from TV, Movies, the internet and school
– learned German at school (I go to the German school in Lisbon)
– learned French at school
– learned Spanish from cartoons (like Doraemon and Ninja Hattori)
– had private Russian lessons along with my stepfather for some months in 2011

When people say they “speak” another language, how do they define “speak”? Do they mean “know a few words and phrases”, or do they mean “fluently as in I could carry on a conversation with a foreigner”? Because I’ve come to realize it’s often the former.

I did French and German in high school and I had a basic grasp but that has been forgoten mostly, I can still get a general idea of what is being said some times but I can’t respond. But I am self taught in Latin languages like Spanish, Italian and Portugese, I’d say high basic to low moderate in those, especially in understanding, but again not too great with responses.
The main reason I believe I can grasp a lot of what people are saying is both in body language mannerisms and because I have a pretty big vocabulary in English, and as you know, so much of that is borrowed from other languages.
But I have a real interest in the Latin languages and I pick up catchy words and phrases, then I go to lengths to work out what they mean.
