how many languages can you speak?

Dutch is indeed not easy, I heard from 'non native dutch speaking people'. The best way to learn a language is mingle among the natives and pick up words that way, not worrying about making mistakes, they will correct you and so you learn immediately the spoken language. Because written dutch is somehow different from the spoken dutch. Veel geluk! (good luck!)

I'm fairly typical of British people of my age and that means that I only speak English. We don't have very good support for languages in our schools. I think it's getting better but it's still a choice to learn another language and not mandatory - which I think it should be.
