    I am fluent in both French and English, and can have very basic conversations in Spanish but would love to learn a lot more. So, I’d say 2 and 1/4

    I’m mexican (Native spanish speaker) and speak fluent english. I’ve always wanted to learn either french or italian but being honest I don’t feel like sitting in a classroom (read:lazy).

    I’m American (and white) so I know English (obviously, lol) and my Fiance is Chinese so I’m currently in my second semester of Mandarin. It’s freaking HARD, and safe to say I would’ve stopped taking it if not for him.

    I’m from Romania, so I know Romanian. I also know German and French pretty fluently, in addition to English. I can read and understand Spanish. I know some vocab but my grammar is pretty rusty. So 4.5, and I’m planning on learning Chinese and Italian down the way, maybe also some Russian. I love languages 🙂 I’d say it’s always a bonus to know more!

    English (native language)
    Spanish (5 years in middle/high school but my speech is horrible in practical application after 4 years of no classes)
    Norwegian (just a bit, enough to get bits and pieces of what my relatives are saying when they visit)
    Biblical Hebrew (my classes do not emphasize conversation but I can read and translate if I have enough time and my Lagenscheit, I am in my 3rd course).

    I tried ancient Greek and was horrible, I enjoy Hebrew so much more.

    English for me. I took Spanish in high school but if you dont use it, you lose it. I completely forgot all that I was taught.

    I speak English, obviously, and am fluent but rusty in Spanish. I can also read French and Italian in a very limited way, mostly as a product of the Spanish, and I know a smattering of Russian, German, Arabic, and Japanese. I majored in Spanish in college and my family, though pretty much white and U.S.-based, has a lot of connections with people elsewhere, so I’ve picked up some random stuff.

    I’ll just say, watching friends take classes in Russian and Japanese, I didn’t envy them. Not saying not to take a shot at it, I’m just not brave enough for the whole new alphabet deal!

    I am always inspired to learn another language, especially when I have travelled to Brazil!  My Spanish is decent enough that I can kind of understand and speak a little, and in Europe nearly everyone speaks English. 

    I feel so lame in Brazil for some reason though…maybe thats a sign I need to learn Portuguese.

    I have the rosetta stone in Italian, and I love the language and can communicate a lil bit in it but I didnt check it cause all i can do is ask for directions, order food, give directions stuff like that:)
