    Since this is a very multi-cultural forum, I just wanted to post a thread to see what languages people speak at home. Basically all you need to post is how many languages you can speak fluently.

    (Oh yeah, i don't want any jackasses making up stuff!!!!)

    Hehehehe, it doesn't get confusing! It does become a mish-mash of english and punjabi often though!!! Now that my sister-in-law is here, I speak urdu to her, english to my brother, punjabi to my mum, and a mishmash to my dad depending on subject matter! It's great!!!

    LOL!

    I would love to be able to speak all those languages - did you learn from when you was little or later on in life? I imagine it is a lot easier if you are brought up and taught them although i think it could get confusing!

    Yes I learnt them alongside each other from when I was young so it became second nature to use them all in their appropriate environments! What makes it worse is my parents have different dialects. I don't think I know the pure forms very well at all!
