I speak English of course. But in high school I took French and Spanish. I cannot speak them fluently but I know a few words and phrases of both languages. So that would mean I somewhat speak three.

I'd like to speak an oriental language... but never had neither opportunity nor motive to learn one. I speak German, Spanish, English fluently. I also read French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch without difficulties and a very tiny bit of Russian. Two years ago I started to study Swahili, my first non European language, and I enjoyed it very much although I would need to have more practice. Languages can turn a separation among people, but also they can turn into a connection. One should also be open to learn a new one.

Hello viollet_ry!:-) It is always nice to know more languages which helps in more understanding and communication. One can enjoy traveling and stay in different country more if one knows the language of that country or culture. I can read, write and speak 4 languages, namely English, French, Urdu and Punjabi. There are two other languages which I can understand at intermediate level but I can't speak or write them as such. I always find it interesting to learn more languages:-)
