    Fluent in English, Dutch and German. Trying to become fluent in Mandarin, Russian and French.

    German and Dutch are quite similar, and being Dutch in blood, it wasn't hard to pick it up.

    I found out I had a flare for languages, so I'm trying to learn as many as possible.

    My Father is fluent in 9 languages, but being the head of Rotterdam Dock's Security Force, he has to speak most main languages. I think I get it from him.

    So far, English and French!

    I'm learning Spanish though, and as I'm so comfortable speaking French I find it really hard not to use French words in Spanish conversations, has anyone else had this!?!?
    YES!!! totally started speaking Polish to my German teacher the other day...
    Doesn't happen too often though

    English- Fluent
    French- Somewhat fluent. Studied it to university level- 2nd year atm. Going to spend the year in France next year so I'd kind of need to be fluent by then!!)
    Spanish-less fluent, fewer years studying Spanish than French so it's my weaker language, but I can speak, read and write it pretty competently.
    Ulster-Scots (some say it's an official language, some say it's more a dialect. So I'll let you decide for yourselves )

    If you understand a language fluently but cannot have a proper conversation in it, is it still considered a language....

    In order of proficiency:

    English
    Gujarati - mother tongue
    Hindi - same(ish) as above
    German - A2 level, hoping to continue to develop my German skills at university - not too sure how though
    French - GCSE level - so at conversational level (with a 5 year old )
    This is 100% identical to me. Although, I've got a basic-ish grasp of Italian too

    My username is very misleading, I know. I saw it on a car sticker once and thought it was funny.
