Hi there! I can speak two foreign languages, they are Filipino and English. I also speak 2 different dialects which is completely different from Filipino. I speak and write fluently with them except English. I am still working on my English. It will come in time with a lot of practice and listening.

I can speak fluent in English and Catonese. I know some French, Mandarin and Japanese but not well enough to actually be able to speak a whole conversation with someone else that is fluent in that language.

that's a lot of languages that you know.I'm really impressed. I just know 3 languages,first is my mother tongue language that's Bahasa Malaysia and of course i'm very influence in this language.The other two would be english and japanese.I can't say that i'm very good or influence in english but i still can speak or understand what other people talking.For japanese,i can speak and understand half,i mean average level in japanese language.I still studying this japanese language and i'm now at intermediate level.For writing in japanese,i only can write Katakana and Hiragana,kanji i can't write at all.I'm going to learn it in this intermediate level and i hope i can be good at this.

Cool,you are very smart-I've heard learning japanese is difficult espcially to write. I'm not fluent in any other language except english but I know some words & phrases. My favorite that I learned from my laotian friend is (I know I'm probably spelling this wrong but I'm just gonna spell like it sounds to me) coi ha chow that's supposed to mean I love you in laotian. +'s 2 U :D

The only language I'm fluent in is English. But I do know quite a bit of Spanish, but not enough where I would be comfortable going to a Spanish-speaking country and being able to talk lol.
