What Languages do you Speak?

Just for a laugh: I'm studying languages and building up my repetoire - but how many other people are breaking the "Most people speak English anyway" assumption?

What can you speak fluently or semi fluently?

Question What Languages do you Speak?

Just out of interest - I'm studying Translation and have a couple of languages under my belt - but how many of you are breaking the "Ah, most people speak English anyway" stereotype?

What languages do you speak fluently or semi-fluently?

I speak Dutch fluently. But that's because I am half Dutch.

Re: What Languages do you Speak?

how does the vote work, as 100% speak english, 20% french, 20% italian, 20% german, 20% dutch, and 20% welsh, which makes it 200%, which is impossible.

P.S. i speak fluent english (geordie), good french, ok italian, ok russian, amd i can talk in an irish accent

Re: What Languages do you Speak?

I speak the 'Language of Love', does this count.
I can also do a good Borat impression.

I do have a couple of CD's from Linguaphone on speaking Spanish - if anyone wants a copy, PM me.

You can vote for more than one thing - English is 100% because everyone who has voted has said they can speak English, irrespective of the fact they may have voted for something else.

I think that makes sense?? Lol
