I was simply curious, as a way to get to know each other better. It came to me when I got home yesterday and realized that I like my Chinese class, and I was curious if anyone else here took a language class or knew another language. So, uhm, what languages does everyone speak? I speak English, pig latin, and some Chinese.

lol pig latin :) i speak english, with an elgin accent, which apparently is very distinct amoung other scottish people. like glaswegian! :P i also like spanish, i studied it for 4 years at school, but stopped in fifth year. hence why Dex is always always referred to as "la cabra" and not a goat :P

Same as Lucid. My native language is English, I've been taking Spanish for about 6 years now, and I am just starting Japanese. Although, I know a handful of words in various other languages thanks to the fact my family is a bunch of travel addicts. And because I have a LOT of family in Brazil, or at least used to live there for some, I know waaaaaaaay too many curse words and insults in Portuguese. A longstanding family favorite 'embarrass your child' story is how one of my first words was a very rude Portuguese slang word.

American English is my primary language. We don't need no stinkin' "u"s clogging up perfectly fine words like "color".

I took Spanish for something like three and a half years and forgot just about ALL OF IT. Outside of basic vocab like "queso", "gato", and "pantalones" the only phrase I remember is "el mundo es un pañuelo" which means "the world is a handkerchief" (or it's a small world).

I took Japanese for a year and loved it. I then studied it independently (read: spottily) on and off for about two years. I like to think I could say enough things to figure out BASIC ULTRA-SIMPLE CONVERSATIONS but my literacy level is about that of a first-grader. So I can make sense of untranslated manga aimed at little kids, which I think is a cool skill. I like to think I'll someday go to Japan for a long stretch of time, which would certainly boost my skills. It's tough learning a language without having people to speak it with...

I only know English. I'm not going to say I know Japanese or Spanish or French or any of that stuff because I only know a few words. However I have taken a strong interest in the Japanese language but that's only because I'm tired of reading subs for anime that hasn't been dubbed yet.

English native (whoo!) american (so again- no "u"s for the most part) with a Kansan accent (if there is one- i still don't hear it).
I'm also taking Latin (3rd year.) I can't quite speak it, but I can read, write, and understand it (if you know latin and how it's constructed, you'll know exactly why i can't necessarilly speak it.)
through latin, i can understand a little of spanish and itallian. huzzah.

Oops, I bet I used the wrong noun case in my sentence. Oh MAN, and I see two words I spelled wrong.
You can correct my Russian, that's the only way I learn. And I have a long way to go yet. :)
(It was rude to use ты instead of вы?)
-faceplant-

Я тоже учу себя. Но это класс, что ваши родители говорят второй язык. ^^

Estonian is fun... they have a billion vowels that are all pronounced a different way, like o, õ, ö, oo, öö...

I speak English, Spanish (though my fluency is dying; started learning it when I was 5 and dialect shift killed me; damnit, Mexican border), a bit of Japanese, bit of French, and I mostly play "I know that word!" with Italian, Latin, and German, but I can recognize phrases in them.

And I speak American English, but my writing... I do borrow a lot from British spellings. Makes more sense in some ways, to me. But English is a nonsensical language on the whole, so it's really not much help for my brain. 8D

I also love various pretty shiny things. I myself write and draw various fan things from time to time. And yes, I also love sleeping, dreaming and being lazy.
Russian is my native language, and I think I can understand English very well. Speaking English is another story tho, I usually have it abundant with grammatical errors)) And I'm also picking up some Japanese in a self-teach manner.

I can write traditional Hebrew and can read Qabalistic keywords.
SPEAKING it is very much a different story. I only know how to speak those basic key terms... not enough for even a two-line conversation.

Though, as far as real languages go, I want to try to out German, Japanese, and possibly some Chinese.

My native language is German, and I've learned speaking English in school, along with messaging with many english-speaking people.^^ Actually I've learned French as well, but I forgot most of it, since it's not exactly my favorite language. Chinese or Japanese on the other hand, would be languages I'm pretty intrested in.
