Languages I can speak:

German : Speak a little bit.
Spanish: Speak some, learned from a 4 year old from Guatemala
Japanese: Know the slightest bit.

Learning Latin, and French later in the year.

Well Swedish is my primary language.

English : Perfect ;)
German : Fairly good (4.5 years in school)
Japanese : In my mind rather good, but I wouldn't make it in Japan without english
Spanish : Can't speak it but do understand something when reading spanish texts
Russian : just a few words

Currently learning some chinese mandarin in my spare time, but that will probably not lead to anything.

Of course I'm good with my first language *English*

As for some others; I'm currently learning German, I do know quite a few words so I guess I'm fairly good with it. I'm also learning a few Japanese here and there... I know some words in Spanish and French, but I'm still having difficulty. I might learn Chinese and Latin in the next few years when I get these a bit more memorized. As you can see I love learning new languages...

Oh, words like 'Microwave' are late inventions, thus they are different in all diverged dialects of Dutch, in the Netherlands it's 'magnetron', in Belgium it's 'microgolf', in Surinam they call it 'maikroweef'. Really like lift and elevator in British® and American English.

First language is Vietnamese. Just speaking though. I don't know as much now than when I was a kid but still able to understand and speak pretty naturally. I don't have to think to understand.

Second is English. Primary language.

Third language was Spanish. Studied it for 2 years but now forgotten pretty much everything.

Currently studying Japanese in my third year. Doing pretty good atm. Should get much better when I go study abroad.

Portuguese, French and Spanish.
I am learning Japanese but can't hold a conversation with more than 3 sentences (and most likely never will xD)

And, as you can see, I don't know a word of English.

Note: the above languages I can speak, read and write. And it's above my comprehension why anybody would learn latin. I know a slight bit because my father forced me to learn (so I could pray in latin =.=), but nowadays all I remember is word ethimology.

English and Mandarin Chinese. Did also learn French, but what I still remember of that language is down to mainly the ability to say "je ne parle pas Francais".

English is my primary language.

I also speak some Spanish. I don't speak it much, so I've degraded over the past few years.

I want to learn Japanese, German, and maybe one or two others.

Primary is english- I wouldnt go as far to say fluent though >_<

I can speak some Farsi cant read a lick of it though, except for numbers
Took 3 years of French, cant speak a lick of that, and 2 years a latin, cant speak that either though.
Then I know some Jap, not much though

Never been motivated enough to learn other languages, i will just stick with the universal pointing and acting it out when I go to another country

Main is English
3 years worth of Spanish (Understand, but have trouble speaking)
A years worth of self-taught Japanese (Used to know 300+ kanji, now like 20 rofl), haven't studied since due to laziness, speak better then read/write.
And mentally understand Tagalog (I don't know the sentence layout, but I can understand, in the simplest form, what they're talking about most of the time. Can't talk whatsoever.)

Would like to be fluent in (apart from English) Tagalog, Japanese, and French in my lifetime.

Slovenian and Japanese are my First language (as in I was raised in both)
I have first studied English at like age of 5-6 and since then I had it in school and I read it all the time on net, or hear it on TV
German, well I have it 4th year in school now but I still don't understand much.

Then theres Croatian/Bosnian and all those similar language to Slovenian. Yup, speaking Slavic language sure is cool :)

I can write properly: French, English and Roumainian.
I can ask for food and help if i'm nearly dead: in German and Ukranian.

Do you speak 4chanian as well? It's quite similar to 1337-speak (on phonetic level, that is).
