Are you living in Singapore? If you are, we should meet up, would love to meet someone I meet on Mylot in the flesh. Anyway, to answer your question, I speak English reasonably well, I can make myself understood in German, I can flatter in Spanish and I can avoid being abused in Chinese restaurants when I speak Mandarin and Cantonese. I can also use the various calls for God in Arabic. Basically I was educated in the UK so my language skills are lousy. But since I've moved back to Singapore I seem to have found the ability to con people into thinking I speak their language. It's worked particularly well with Italians, who tell me I speak with a lovely Italian accent - when the truth is I can barely thank the waiter in Italian. Strange.
