    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.
    You studied English Literature at uni. You surely do know more than one language. :teehee:

    I'm fluent in Lithuanian and English but that's cause I'm Lithuanian but live and study in UK. Also studied Russian for 5 years but I barely know the basics of that. Not that good with languages.

    Sorry, what is shameful?

    I'm sure being a member of the intellectual elite would prevent you from becoming a solitary thinker.
