I can speak dutch fluently but that's only because I grew up there. It takes about 2-5 years to become fluent depending on the language and effort put in towards learning.

Yup, English and Spanish (I'm Polish). You Brits don't fancy language learning, do you? I was on a trip to the UK once and my friends and I asked random friends in the street if they spoke a second language, 0 out of 11 did. :P Yeah, I know, a magnificent study, but you're infamous for not wanting to learn.

Well technically English is my second language.

But I'm probably better at it than my first.... :rolleyes: But then I grew up in England so I dunno if that counts really.

Australians speak English with different accents and dialects same for the Americans. South Africans speak Afrikaans.

Speaking French isn't as cool as it used to be, but it's nice whipping out your french speaking skills when dining in French cuisines from time to time

I'm reeeally want to learn Arabic :moon:

I exclusively speak French to my sister so it's like a secret language nobody understands

Me too!
Now, speaking both Arabic and French is classy
