Fluently, I speak Spanish and Portuguese. Hmm... I think my English is pretty good, but I lack confidence to speak. T___T
Intermediate French and beginner Japanese (still learning both). And I'm thinking about starting German...
I like studying languages, so I'm majoring in Applied Foreign Languages. \o\

Fluently?  Portuguese (native), Spanish and English.

Can fake it when reading some text?  French and Latin.  Japanese if I have enough time and a dictionary on hand.

I've also taken a semester of German, once, so I can at least pronounce it correctly -- particularly when singing.

If you use "circling around", wouldn't that be redundant since "circling" already implies that you're going "around"?

I speak (aside my native tongue of course) English and German fluently, use it on a thinking level, although if I may I would like to ask a native speaker about one thing in English: when someone is circling, like say a building by running or just wandering why do I remember using the word around insted the correct about, like running about?

Let's see: I'm fluent in Javanese (mind the v), also partially fluent in Banjar language; both of them are part of regional language in my country (and each of them are totally different, mind you). Naturally, I'm also fluent in Indonesian and (of course!) English.
Currently learning Japanese and Arab language.

I speak fluently English, French, Japanese and Chinese.
Chinese being my mother tongue but I barely write it anymore.
I'm most fluent in French (both written and spoken) which was my 3rd language (Currently living in Quebec, Canada!)
I have no problem at all in English (4th language) and Japanese (2nd language) either.

Currently I'm learning German, and perfectioning Latin that I learnt at school (even though it is a dead language, it is quite useful to know the origin of some words).

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.
