Ja.

Ek praat Afrikaans, het Duits geleer in skool (maar ek is definitief nie vlot daarin nie), en ek moes ook Sotho leer in laerskool. Ek het -FF gekry vir dit. :p

Google doesn't understand Afrikaans too well haha

Romanian, English, French and German at a fairly decent conversational level. I can understand some Italian and Spanish because they're Romance languages too.

Arabic is my native since I am from Libya, I have learned English ever since I was 3-4 years of age. I consider English to be a native language of mine also. However like 5 years I started learning French and have become very fluent. I started learning Italian since last September using Rosetta Stone and it is all going well. I plan to be able to speak, write and read on an intermediate level by the end of the year. I can maintain a conversation fairly easy.

 

So yeah I am trilingual on my way to become quatrolingual. (If that's even a thing)

Native Spanish speaker, can speak English as if it were native as well. Thanks to speaking Spanish, I can understand about 30-40% of spoken romance languages (Romanian, Italian, French, Portuguese) and a good 60% of written.

Finnish, Swedish, English, Russian and some German. There was no Rosetta Stone back then...

All Finns should speak Swedish, at least that used to be the case but now with globalization other languages are growing in interest.

It´s actually a bit of a debate here, You have to take Swedish classes and some people don´t like it. But I do.

German classes took in school, Russian is self learned from books, radio, music and such.

I speak Finnish, English and Swedish. Finnish and English are fluent but Swedish is only relatively fluent.

I also know words from Spanish, Portuguese, Latin, Japanese, Russian, French and Italian.

I learned Finnish for being Finnish, English from games, movies, series, Internet and school and Swedish from school.

 

Languages highlighted for reasons unknown to me.

 

Fun fact:

I know English maybe even better than Finnish. I know the meaning of most words instantly in English, but struggle to translate it in Finnish, lol. Kind of weird...

A very limited amount of Spanish and Turkish, I think I could get by in either country on a very basic level.

Obviously English as a native, but I have Gibraltarian girlfriend who speaks English and Spanish fluently,so I've been learning a bit of Spanish from her. 

 

I can basically understand virtually everything said to me in Spanish, but I can't formulate my own sentences. Perhaps it is a confidence thing but I hear it is quite common when you are learning a new language.

German, English, French

 

When i read something in Dutch, it seems that I can get a general Idea about the content. It's the same thing with Italian because of my French skills.

I understand a little bit of Dutch. It's fairly similar to Afrikaans.

- Spanish
- Basque (f*cking useless and difficult piece of junk. I should had been taught English instead of this bullsh*t, and all thanks to the moronic nationalists)





not low enough...





- English. Terrible pronuntiation and I still find a bit difficult to understand it spoken and therefore to follow conversations.

Forgotten: French.

 

Don't say that in downtown Bilbao :lol:
