    Can speak a reasonable amount of French (recognise many key phrases) and a bit of German (I always remember that 'machinenschreiben' is the word for 'typewriter', for some reason). :p:

    I speak fluent English and Spanish and good French. Learned German for 5 years, got an A at A Level but I don't really speak it anymore.
    I understand all the Romance languages and speak some Catalan, Italian and Portuguese but not enough to have a proper conversation with natives. Learned Japanese for a few months, would like to take it up again.

    It is unbelievably scary how many languages so many people seem to know!! I mean I knew my language skills were rubbish (English, German, crap French/Spanish/Latin) but I didn't realise there we so many people who were so talented!
    Lucky!!!! Well not lucky I guess it takes a lot of hard work but I'm envious anyway!

    I'm fluent in English and Hindi, and can also speak Gujarati and some Urdu. My French is also adequate, as is my Spanish and my Italian is good enough to get me by when I'm in Italy.

    I'm fluent in English and Gujarati (I actually learnt to speak it before English - I could hardly speak English until I was forced to learn it at school) and am pretty proficient in German too, though it's nowhere near as fluent as the other two. I know enough French to get by on holiday and I can understand bits of Hindi, but I can't speak it. I also know bits of Swedish, Spanish and Mandarin. Next year I'll probably try and learn a bit of Japanese too

    Just want to say, doing a language at A-level means you are FAR from fluent. It's a harsh reality, but really you know nothing. I did A level german, got 100% in one of the modules, and I still cannot say a thing. I'm at Uni of Bath learning right now... ok I'm not THAT bad but i would not call myself fluent by any stretch of means.

    I of course speak English, Degree in German and learning Italian.

    I agree! I did Welsh (2nd Lang) and French for A-Level and there is no way that I could consider myself fluent. I am now studying French and ab initio Italian, and still after almost a year in Uni i still wouldnt say that I am fluent. When you sit in lectures, conducted totally in French, you realise how far off fluent you really are!
    Just wish you could absorb the dictionary overnight!! Maybe after another 3 years, i'll finally be able to call myself fluent in French and Italian, heres to hoping!
