English as a mother tongue.
Enough German to eat, drink, wash, sleep, and start a fight.
Similar French to German
Sufficient Welsh to embarrass myself.
A bit of Russian - enough to buy the essentials, introduce myself and insult someone's mother.
However at the last count I could say "beer" in 20+ languages, which always helps.
Love to learn Dutch but when I go to the Netherlands everyone always wants to practice their bloody English.

Finnish as first language, also speak Swedish and English. I've been thinking should I start studying German while I still can.

Also, if you count mathematics as a language... scratch

Wow, that's some list.

Me. I'm fluent in English and Indonesian, and I speak some German. Also little bits of other languages, so little it's not worth mentioning.

Am I the only person that doesn't qualify...
I can hardly speak my mother tongue (Gaelic), but I suppose English doesn't count as a foreign language...
PS: a bit odd, both my parent are Irish (I think, but emigrated young)

They tried to teach me French at school but I wouldn't have any of it. If they'd just given me the choice I would have picked German and got on with it rather than spend my time trying to disrupt the French class. Ah, school...

I'd quite like to learn Esperanto, Latin and Danish though.

its considered an arabic dialect, but theres lots of italian influence too, and even some spanish/english/french influence.

its basically considered a surviving form of the Sicilian arabic dialect. i don't understand that much of what arabs say when speaking.

some words are very similar to italian
like Grazzi (grazie)

After learning one Scandinavian language (i.e. Norwegian, Finnish), is it really easy to pick up the others? I heard that Norwegian and Danish were so similar you could hardly tell them apart Razz.

I know Swedish and I understand most Norwegian, there are different types of Norwegian though.

Finnish is completely different, doesn't make any sense at all and Danish is somewhere in the middle, I can understand some of it but its harder than Norwegian I think.

Finnish is actually closer to Estonian than Norwegian and Swedish. It's also, I've been told, correspondingly tricky to learn.

My mother tongue is English.

In order of fluency i also speak: Spanish, German, Latin, French and Italian.

When speaking or writing French i always lapse into Spanish, so that's why im bad at it. My Italian is the absolute bare minimum amount where you could still say you spoke it.
