View topic - What languages do you know?
I speak portuguese (native language), and since they're so close alike, i can understand and speak spanish pretty well (i never studied it one bit!).
English is my second language, studied it for...(*counts*) 7 years, and i'm almost sorry to say this, but i speak it more than my native language =S.
I also studied French for 2 years, and i was very good at it, but have forgotten some of it, even though if i hear someone i can pretty much understand the basics. So i'm about at begginers level.
And currently am studying japanese.
Was thinking of russian after! =P
(Note: I am only 17... So i think i'm doing pretty good :p)
I just love languages!!!

French: I took it in high school and don't remember a word of it. I didn't like it. I wish I'd paid more attention though, and gone further. Any language is useful to know.
I also seem to understand a lot of Spanish, although I've never taken it. I think it's because it's probably the most common foreign language in the U.S. and shows up a lot of places.
Ni ere bai, baina ez dut erdara ikasi nahi. Espainola oso zabala da Ameriketan. Hizkuntza biak, espainola eta frantses, niri gogaikarriak dira.
Eta Hijukurentzat, hau zer:
Русский мой любимый язык наряду с английском, и вскоре, японском!

I'm also learning French at school but am rather bad...
Now I started learning Japanese even though it'll take some time ;P

I have an understanding of the other scandinavian languages(mostly on paper and not so much by hearing ^_^) and some german.
Have studied Japanese for approximately 2 years now, so a basic knowledge there too... I did study French at one point for a couple of years in school, but have nothing to show from it.

German: Is my mother tongue, obviously. I love it because you can do so much fabulous stuff and word games with it and twist it around and just about everything! <3
English: Ah, my one great love. I adore the English language! I can't understand how one can't like it or something People in my class always stared at me when I sat in 6th grade and read Harry Potter or something in English - they still ask me about my English books if I understand anything but I can read English books just as easily as German ones.
Latin: In 7th grade, we could choose between French and Latin - I chose Latin. I can't even order a pizza or curse properly in Latin. This is what teaches you that learning Latin is in 99% of the cases useless.
French: Have started half a year ago, but we have twice the learning matter than usual so our small class can catch up with those who chose French earlier.
Okay, then now it's Japanese and in two years I'm starting to take Spanish classes. B)

I've read through the first fifteen pages or so, and I'm very impressed. Being multilingual is a very admirable thing, and a skill I hope to gain in the future. Now, to the question at hand: I know
Icelandic: My mother tongue, I speak this quite fluently.
English: My second language, I am one fourth American, and have stayed in English speaking countries for long periods of time. I speak this fluently.
Danish: My third language, I can barely keep up a conversation, write barely coherent sentences and understand some (slow, clear) speech. I wouldn't know any Danish if it were not compulsory in Icelandic schools.
Japanese: Eh, I know a few katakana. Ridiculous, I know, but I'm slowly working on it.
Reading through the first fifteen pages, I saw only one mention Icelandic. I don't have the patience to skim through the rest, but I ask: Are there any other Icelanders here, studying Japanese for fun? I would love to come into contact with you.
