I know English, French and Chinese (Mandarin) beyond reasonable fluency and currently I'm picking up Spanish.

I speak English, some French, some Hungarian.

Good thing there's no "Other" option.

English, Spanish, and French.

I took Spanish in the 9th and 10th grades, and French in the 12th.

I can understand Spanish pretty well.

English and French, English fluently (obviously), French reasonably fluently (though not entirely so).

Just English.

I used to take Spanish, but I've forgotten all of it.

I'm learning Italian, I don't know much, though.  I also know English, of course, but forgot to select it in the poll.

Maybe you should take up Japanese.  It might help you with the ladies.

I'm surprised at the number of people who can speak French; I was always under the impression that Spanish was the "other" language that you learn in America.

It is but most of those people aren't on the forum.

I know a bit of French due to this city being practically billingual (not officialy though) and I am trying to become fluent in it for my political career. But, since i am not fluent in it I only chose English. Je parle en francais un petit peut. Smiley

You all should know what my native tongue is by now, so I won't elaborate.....

I took classes in Japanese and Spanish since I was in 3rd grade.  And I don't remember a thing since I never found occasion to use what I have learned in a real-life situation.

English - native language, fluent
Spanish - working knowledge, better at reading and writing than speaking.
French - some knowledge of basic grammar and vocabulary; could probably read a French newspaper and have a basic idea of what was being discussed.

I used to code in Assemby, but I've suppressed the memory.  Did the same thing with the Nixon and Carter Administrations as well..

Born in the Netherlands.

Dutch and German are quite similar... perhaps due to the Germans invading us repeatedly over the centuries...
