How many and what languages does everybody here speak? :) Watch
Personally i can speak English (obviously), passable Russian and basic Azeri and Malay.
Receptive bilingual in Yoruba
Aside from english I can speak mandarin to a decent conversational level.. Though I wouldn't trust myself in a really advanced/professional/academic enviroment. I mean, I can watch an understand a comedy movie without subtitles.. but I would struggle with a science documentary. I am far behind when it comes to reading and writing though. If my speaking-age in the language is probably that of a teenager, my written-age is probably that of a 3-4 year old.
I haven't had lessons for a year though, as I stopped to focus on my masters. Now that's finished, I want to pick it up properly again.
I love the idea of learning and speaking more languages, I'm just not very good at them. I'm not even that good at english to start with, as my post history here shows!
