    Ok and a wee bit of French. And I can say insults in Spanish and German but that about all :-)

    Ich liebe dich, which if you say it with a really gutteral accent, is pretty cool... in a kind of angry way...

    That would be "Ich liebe dich"...screw up the pronunciation of it and yes, it does sound rather rude

    Can speak fluently in English, quite fluently in French, quite fluently in German- though nowhere near enough that I can in French, a few welsh words, a few Spanish words, a few Greek words (mainly for Physics and Maths) and some Russian ( you have tATu to thank for that!)

    errr - yep....as I said before - I have a gcse in welsh, which means I cant understand the majority of what your saying.
    The location does make that obvious though.

    This kind of thread begs the questions: how do we define 'fluent'? Is discussing with your mum what's for dinner in her language the same as being able to write essays in English? All very interesting...

    To add my bit, I speak English natively, studying German and Modern Greek at uni, did French A-level, some basic Spanish and and am learning Mandarin at the min.

    I say fluency is where you can speak confidently and without jolting, with a good accent and with being able to go through the average day without not knowing what a certain word means (assuming it's not something vastly technical you probably wouldn't understand in your native tongue) :rolleyes:
