English with a indistinguishable accent according to my friend, she says that I don't sound American or British but rather somewhere in Europe (yes, I am going wtflol with that but honestly I sometimes hear myself slipping to a valley-girl accent when I'm on a roll) I'm more inclined talking in this.
Filipino
French (Well, basic. 'Coz you know, mandatory 6 units of language courses in college)
Sarcasm with a valley-girl accent. The accent is mandatory. Deal with it.

1. German
2. English

I also had Spanish lessons, but except from "No tengo dinero" there isn't much left of that. At least I'm safe from thieves then.

I'm planning to learn Russian someday, but it seems like I will never start with that :D.

1)English (international school in Hong Kong so I learnt it. Also, all my friends speak it so it's like a mother tongue to me)
2) Chinese (cantonese) Cause i'm from Hong Kong
3) Chinese (mandarin) because at my old school we got 8 periods of mandarin a week
4) French it's obligatory in my school now.
Those are the languages I can hold fluent conversations in
5)Italian (I quit after 2 years because a) never gonna use it and b) I suck
6) Gonna start learning japanese now. Good thing I have japanese friends.

2. German [My main language.]
3. English [The first language I learned in school and I... just failed sooooooo hard. xD I hope I got better since then or else I'll have to apologise to my betareaders in advance. :,D]
4. French [Also "learned" in school. Really not my language. D:]

Hm... Gotta learn japanese one day.
Just think about all the otome games I could finally understand! :,D /shot

Hungarian - My native language.

English – We could say that I started studying it at an early stage, because I watched many foreign shows on TV when I was little, and nowadays too. After I was older, I studied it in school for around 10 years, and after school ended, I signed up for an English exam course, which was one school year long (the exam itself was in April, this year). And also, I use the computer, radio and the TV almost every day, and because of this, I often get into contact with English, which makes it harder to forget it.

German – Similarly to English, I watched and still watch German channels too, so I learned a lot, and also in kindergarten I learned a few words, like for example the colors. I can speak and read German, however I haven't learned how to write it yet.

Japanese – Self study. I know some worlds, some sentences and some of the alphabet. Hope to learn more of it in the future.
Where there's a will there's a way.

1. French (native langage)
2. German (I didn't want to do like everyone else when I got into middle-school)
3. English (because finally I didn't have a choice, but I really like this langage and I think I've got a good level)
4. Italian (I learned it when I was in high school even though I don't speak it everyday and don't use it, I still can speak and understand it)
5. Japanese (for the moment, I learned the hiragana... I know some words and sentences thanks to the anime)

And that's it :D

Hi all)
I speak:
1) Russian (native)
2) English (speak for many years)
3) French (learned at university, can read and understand if spoken slowly, write with dictionary)
I'd like soo much to learn Japanese, but I'm afraid it's very difficult. Though I hope some day I will try to do this)

The spelling of grammar is- GRAMMAR.
This clearly shows how much knowledge you have about grammar. You can't even pronounce the word properly.

1) I have no idea how you would know the way Seven pronounces the word "grammar". Unless you've already had him/her on Skype already.
2) Not knowing how to spell "grammar" means just that: Seven is probably bad at spelling. That doesn't mean he/she is equally bad at English grammar.

Spelling and grammar is related. If someone doesn't know the spelling of the word "GRAMMAR", I will have doubts about his grammar.
