    Post How many languages do you speak?

    Fluently. Though if your semi-fluent in two count that as one. As in my case with French and Spanish.

    Which do you want to learn that you don't already know?

    I want to learn German,Dutch,and Swedish.

    I saw a program on TV that stated 2000 years ago there were thousands of more languages spoken that have gone out of existence.

    Today with modern media and global communications it's a wonder how many more will go extinct.

    I speak English, French and German and am learning Russian. Then I shall learn Norwegian. Other Germanic languages are eay for English-speakers to learn.

    English is indeed gobbling up a lot of languages but that's life. English rules.

    Post AW: How Many Languages Do You Speak?

    Fluently: two (German and English)
    Semi-fluently: Italian

    Kind of embarassing though because I have learned a lot of other languages (Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Latin).
    So I voted for 3 languages although my Italian is getting crappier each day and the rest is dead on arrival...

    Fluent in English and German. Semi-fluent in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish (yeah okay should count as one), and Dutch. Reading fluent in Old English, Middle English, Gothic, OHG. Reading semi-fluent in ON, Latin, Italian, Spanish, French, Classical Greek (i.e. use a dictionary for a few - several words). I chose 4 languages "fluent".

    I'm only fluent in English I've taken German for 2 years now but I still have a looooooooooooooooooong way to go before I could even approach being fluent. Maybe I'll never get there, which would be sad. I also, to borrow a phrase from Ben Jonson, know a "little Latin and less Greek"

    I Speack Fluant German and English. so I voted for two languages

    I can speak a couple of sentences in frnch but nowhere near anough to have a conversation. I only just got a Norwegian course out of the library because Norwegian is one of the languages I want to learn as well as Russian I would also like to learn french properly as well as perhaps other northern languages and Latin

    Sure English is a very nice language. But when Anglicism is used in the German language for instance It really ruins the integrity of the language and in turn that is not good for the English language either because it is then presenting itself in the worst possible goofy, trendy Pepsi Generation light, and not in a sophisticated light like it was in the old English literatur.

    My mother tongue is italian, but i'm fluent in english and spanish. I can read French and Portuguese.

    At University i've learned Latin and ancient Greek (i'm not joking, i think that Italy is the only country in the world where the old greek is learned in high schools. Incredible); anyway, thanks that i can read the cirillic alphabet.

    I don't speak german (what a shame....... ) i understand only some words.
