    Munich is really nice, but I did prefer Hamburg! It's just more fun to go out there.

    My native language is English, I speak Spanish proficiently but not fluently and I've just started German.

    Other languages I would like to learn include: French, Portugese, Romanian and Welsh.

    English fluently (obviously), French to good standard (with grammar errors) and simple Italian. Hopefully those three shall all become fluent in time

    English.

    I'm studying three foreign languages, and have varying degrees of fluency in each, but wouldn't say I was fluent in any of them!

    English and French. Hopefully, I shall soon be adding Latin and Ancient Greek to that list.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but how do you measure 'fluency' in a language? The OP said they wanted to see what languages people on TSR spoke; stipulating that they are 'fluent' in the language in the poll might not reflect that; I can speak Chinese, but I'm not fluent in it...

    I'd suggest that a fairly useful definition of fluency is to be able to communicate relatively, but not extremely, complicated ideas in a language whilst only making the most minor errors and getting one's argument/ideas across.
