I can speak fluently in English and French, which are both my mother tongue, as my parents taught me these two languages at the same time. I think that these two languages will come in handy, as there are the two official languages of Canada, the country where I live. On top of that, I am also learning sign language and Italian, but I'm only a beginner. I'm not fluent in these two last languages. Hopefully, someday I will be, with time and lots of practice.

hi yisimiwang! i'm from the philippines. well, in my country we have around 170 languages all in all. we do have 2 major dialects: tagalog and cebuano. our national language is tagalog. however, in my case my native tongue is cebuano. my second language is english because it's our medium of instruction at school. and last would be tagalog. i rarely like speaking tagalog though because i sound so awkward and my accent is pretty bad. so i prefer to talk to those who speak tagalog in english. but i can understand them well. so all in all i can speak 3 languages. however, i can understand one more language. although i can't speak ilonggo but i can understand it. so that gives me a total of 3 languages i can speak and 1 language that i don't have problems understanding.
