Hmm...my fluency at other languages is debatable at the moment...I haven't used any language other than English in a long time.
Nontheless, I usually have it down that I'm fluent in Mandarin, Malay, English and Cantonese...

Uh.. I'm a linguistics major so...

Chinese, korean, japanese, french, spanish, german and english.

People claim i'm gifted with languages but I'm not sure if I am since i tend to speak multiple languages bunched up together when i have brain fart.   :hoshinoippai:

Anyway, my goal is to learn as many languages as possible. So my focus is mostly the east asian languages. Next is european, then slavic, then middle eastern, then south east asian.

No doubt everyone here wants to learn Japanese :D
I've tried it too but somehow it's too hard for me now, and I really want to be able to read Japanese so that I can go buy some original manga too :D
Not that the scanlators are doing a bad job but it's just more exciting to get your hands on a freshly released tank :D

well, if dialects are counted separately, I can speak 5 languages (English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Teochew, Hokkien), and read and write 2 (English and Chinese), and understand a little Malay.

BTW, although this may not be the right thread for this, I always wonder at the huge difference between Chinese (being logographic) and English (being phonetic). I have never realised, until recently, that the Chinese written language is a distinct language by itself, quite apart from all its spoken counterparts. And being logographic, how our thinking is being shaped rather differently from phonetic speakers.

Well in Malaysia generally people pick up more than one language simply because the left hand side neighbours probably speaks Cantonese and the other neighbours speaks Tamil and your best friend happens to be speaking another Chinese dialect like Hokkein. Well when I was young I grew up by the time I as 3 I was already fluent in Malayalam which my grandmother would strictly speak to me in and I ended talking like an old granny. My friends were all Malays and of course we will eventually be doing  every subject in Malay except English .My parents who actually were born even before the Japanese occupation of Malaysia grew up speaking Queen's English so needless to say that was the other language I learnt. I married a globe trotting Italian and we went to Brazil for 4 years so I picked up Portuguese then lived in Spain for 3 so picked up Spanish and finally we are back in Italy. Including Tamil I can speak 7 languages of course not all of them as well as Malay or English but enough to get around with.

I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, can still recall some French, and understand Italian enough to ask for a steak xD. And I'm planing on learning German, Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese and Russian. And then I can be understood anywhere hopefuly.

French (native), English. I can understand Spanish to an extent, as well as written Italian and Portuguese, but my skill in the latter two are nothing to write home about.
Finally, I can hold my own in Japanese.
