Curious to see how many multilingual people we have here, and what 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th) language you speak

I was taught French at school- and was so hopeless- I'm really jealous of anyone who can learn languages.

Fluent in French and Spanish.
Reasonably good in Dutch.
Working knowledge of German and Italian - good understanding, rather shaky expression!
Reasonable understanding of Portuguese.
Survival level in Turkish.

Some people claim that Maths is a sort of a language but I stopped being able to do Maths when the numbers suddenly became letters!

French, Spanish and a little bit of Japanese. This is such a good thread idea!

Yes - Urdu/Punjabi and I can read Arabic.

It's a bit complicated with Urdu and Punjabi, I can understand it, I knew it very well during my childhood but as I grew older I stuck with English more. But still, I can have a conversation in those languages I suppose... to some extent - and I still understand when it's spoken (I tend to reply back in English!).
