    What are your languages?

    Over the years I have noticed that lots of forum members seem to speak German (or want to learn).
    What's up with that?

    So I thought I would ask:
    What languages do forum members speak?

    English, German, French here, with some Dutch and much less Russian.

    English, German, Spanish, Latin, Ancient Greek, and I'll be starting Hebrew pretty soon. I can read quite a few more, but these are the ones I can speak and understand, or in the case of Latin and Greek, read and write.

    English, survival Spanish, can read and write Hebrew, but can't speak it all (useful, right?)

    I speak South Louisiana, with some New Orleans, and Texas (both DFW and Houston dialects).

    I can speak a very rudimentary version of grammatically-correct English, as well. I am learning to speak Washington and Oregon.

    I really do regret not learning any other language. I had French in high school and Spanish in college, but did not retain any of it.

    English and a lot of Spanish (Mexican/Puerto Rican Spanish, I don't understand Spain Spanish very well).
    I understand German when it's spoken to me, but only can speak a little bit and I'm not good at reading it.
    I have "survival" ability in Italian and Turkish.

    I speak English (the British version rather than the American version), and enough French and Italian to get around places where those are spoken. This last week has been Māori Language Week in New Zealand and I've taken the opportunity to learn some more words of Te Reo Māori to add to my vocabulary, even though it's not a language I would claim to speak yet.

    When I travel, I like to learn some basics in the language of whatever country I'm visiting. My local public library subscribes to Mango Languages which I've found really great for this purpose, and totally free to me as a library member.

    English and some Québécois-style French. My kids are in French immersion in school and are way ahead of me, but I can converse with them a bit, and read more.

    Mango is great!

    Started with Spanish in high school. Everything filters through that first. Then Ancient Greek, Hebrew, German (which I tried 3 times, but never got the knack of it), French. Dabbled in Coptic and a bit of Luganda. :-)

    Spanish, and enough Italian to cope when visiting Italy. Would really like to learn French next, mainly because our last 2 big trips were to Quebec and France, and I am dying to go back to France again.
