Right now all I know is English, sadly. I am teaching myself how to speak Japanese, French, Russian, and Sign language. These are the big ones that I want to accomplish within the next couple of years. I would really like to learn all languages if that's possible.

That is really interesting :) i love different languages, and really wish i could speak other ones.. i am at the moment learning Turkish, but its difficult.. but still, i keep trying and gradually learning more and more.. Id love to know Arabic hehe.. Seems really cool.. I used to wonder how can suddenly switch between languages so easily.. But i do, do it a little in msn, between Turkish and English :D:D as say though i only know basic Turkish.. its enough to make a little conversation lol

I can sort of read french and spanish but I really can only speak English (some would debate that) and alittle Spanish. I would like to improve my spanish so I could be conversant in it, but I never seem to have time to study. It is a big language here in the US.

I'm proud to say i know four languages Romanian, English, Espagnol and French. I thing a people is not a real people if he doesn't know many foreign languages, because they are the key of multicultural education, a way to understant and accept other cultures.

I am from the Philippines. I speak Visayan, Tagalog, English, and Spanish. It was easier to learn Spanish because of the huge influence of the Spaniards during their occupation in the Philippines.

English is my second language and I can speak English really well although not really fluent. I come from Indonesia and speak Indonesian as my first language. Well that's the only two major language I know. I am also a Chinese descendant and only speak few words or it although I want to learn Chinese mandarin because it would become 2nd universal language after English in near future.
