    English and Irish at a reasonably level (as in I don't need to read all the subtitles when it's on telly )
    I was taught a little Irish as a child by my dad but I've forgotten most if not all of it now. I might be able to muster a painfully-pronounced count to ten.

    Yep. I love it.

    Thinking about it I actually know more than I thought.
    Oh I understand what you mean now with the GCSE bit! I agree, learning a language outright or from family etc. is probably better and more interesting.
    :yep:

    Are you disappointed I didn't recognise the song immediately?

    Apart from English, I'm more or less fluent in Spanish (bit rusty though) and can have a decent conversation in German.

    I don't necessarily mean being almost as good as a native speaker, but at least being able to hold a conversation on a general topic in that language

    Post what languages you know and how you learned them
    English (native speaker)
    Irish (native speaker)
    French (almost fluent)
    German (conversational)
    Mandarin Chinese (starter)
    Russian (a few words)

    English - native speaker
    French - I've been learning French since I was 8, I go to France quite a lot and for the most part can communicate without any major problems. I am studying it at university, so I would like to think I'd be fluent afterwards
    German - I've been learning German since I was 11. I've only been to Germany twice, once when I was 14 and could hardly hold a conversation, and the other in February this year to do work experience. This was a real test for me as I'd never experienced speaking to native Germans, and it was a huge shock as it was completely different to what we learn at school and the grammar-perfect German we read in textbooks. I am studying it alongside French at university, so I hope my German skills will increase, too
