I speak 5 and understand 2 more! I'm a native speaker of 2 languages, studied 3 languages at university (and feel very confident in them) and have picked up 2 more languages as a child through passive learning. Ever since I was a baby, my family would watch international movies so I can understand those 2 perfectly (as if they were English) but I can't speak a lick. I suppose it's kind of like - you can read Shakespeare but not write it. :rambo:

I'd give myself 1.5.

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!

Probably 1.5 languages, I would consider myself a B2 French learner, so I can have general conversations now but struggle when talking about advanced academic topics and am rubbish about learning genders of nouns, and English.

For Welsh lit, do you have to study Welsh books and stories like English lit?

First language English. Some French and Spanish but I'd like to be more fluent in them. I've also thought about learning Japanese at some point as well.
