1. Portuguese (native)
2. German (my father's, I've been learning since I was a kid since I studied at a german school)
3. English (high school + lots of fanfiction!)
4. French (still don't know why I took it, but I did!)

I still had a year of mandarin, but I didn't do too well at it.

There are a lot of repeated languages. It's not a bad thing, but it really shows the dominating languages.

1. Chinese (Mandarin; I'm re-learning it though T_T) <--native
2. English (Queen's English) <--primary
3. French (France)

Anyone know Korean?

^ Me!! but I'm not very fluent in it >.>; getting close though...
1. English (Native)
2. Korean (This is what my parents speak, I know how to write, read, and speak it, but not fluently)
3. Japanese (My friend has been teaching me, but I only know a few phrases)
4. Spanish (My mother made me take classes on this, but I know the very basics)

1. English (better than almost all people I meet); I gather it's with a mild Australian accent.
2. Python -- yeah, I had to put this here for comparison purposes. I'm getting towards mastering it. I've spent a lot of effort on learning various programming languages (I should also mention C),
which was probably what led me to learn
3. Lojban, the only fully computer-parseable spoken language I know of. Excellent foundations, need more vocabulary (I would probably sound like a 10year old to a native speaker.)
4. Other miscellanea (bagful of Japanese and Esperanto, couple handfuls of Latin, a bit each of Chinese, Greek, Italian, French, Spanish, German)

1. English (native and my best subject)
2. Spanish (just picked it up. 40% of the people where I live are Mexican immigrants)
3. French (taking in high school. My second best language)
4. Latin (teaching myself. I always wanted to learn a language nobody speaks)
5. Gibberish (my friends and I communicate with odd noises and hand guestures. Somehow, we understand ieach other)
6. Sarcasm (very fluent however many people don't understand me)

^LOL at #6!

1. Chinese - Mandarin & Cantonese (I used to mix the two up so much when I was a kid).
2. English (Learned this later than most because my parents are really adamant about not speaking English at home, rargh).
3. French (Theoretically, I should be really good at this because I learned it early on, but no).
4. Latin (Because this is such a useful language to learn, amirite).
5. German (After two years, I've become proficient in phrases such as "ich habe meine Hausaufgaben vergessen").

I really want to learn Korean, though; the sounds of the language are really pretty. ;D

Seeing quite a few asians here in the forums, that's nice for a change.

1. English (What can you expect from a BBC?)
2. Chinese - Cantonese (I understand hearing best, speaking second, writing last. Focused on my main studies as a child.)
3. French (Studies.)
4. German (Studies.)
5. Latin (And even more studies.)
6. Chinese -Mandarin (Tried learning another form of Chinese again, didn't turn out well due to my other studies, again.)
7. Japanese (Started learning it by myself and then some at uni, but I really need to practice it. Same could be said of my Cantonese).

If only I had people I could practise my Chinese/Japanese with... :D

1. Vietnamese (for some reason even though I was born in America, it was my first language)
2. English
3. Spanish (took it for 5 years in HS)
4. Japanese (taught it to myself?? I suck at kanji, but as long as there's furigana, I'm generally okay, though I'm better with listening comprehension)
5. Latin (took it for 1 year in HS)

I can speak a liiiiittle bit of Korean and a liiiiittle bit of Chinese, but those barely count, lol.

Nobody speaks ? here in Italy is still occasionally used, and not only in that tiny state called "Vatican"....

Best regards from Italy,

1. English
2. Mandarin (against my will at first, but now I've grown to love it ^^)
3. Spanish
4. Japanese (... If you can call it that. I doubt any Japanese person would understand what the heck I'm saying though -3-)
