What languages can you speak?

i can speak broken russian, and i am in my 2nd year of french and german at my school.

also, i added a poll to see what people think is the most important language to learn.
please consider especially your opinion on the best for business opportunity/job market, as well as social life/things to do in that language country, the people both inside and out, and quality/happiness of life ...plus whatever else you would like.

Sometimes I don't like being a french speaking guy because french speaking people are the worst at learning languages !

Re: What langauges can you speak?

Fluent: English, Tamil, Bahasa Malaysia
Broken but can get by: Malayalam, Bahasa Indonesia
Very, very broken: Spanish (I can speak only in the present tense)
Can understand a little bit but lots of difficulty speaking: French

And by the way, your spelling of language in the thread title is wrong.

Re: What langauges can you speak?

Fluent: English, Bitch, Sarcasim

Me and Spanish have a complicated relationship My vocab isn't big but I know quite a bit can understand a good amount. If I just took like a year of it consistently I would be fluent. I've been hearing it for like years.

Re: What languages can you speak?

I'm fluent in English and Spanish, speak a little bit of German, and can understand Italian & French, but definitely not speak them.

I took Russian lessons, but I can't remember a damn thing about it.

Re: What languages can you speak?

Mandarin for poll. Can only speak four languages, I´m lazy

Chinese/Mandarin is probably most difficult. You can´t lear it from book. They go, for example word language. Can be langUAGE or LANGuage! So I have been told Did that made any sense? Ì mean chinese of cource. Same word, diffirent pronouncement. Diffirent meaning. Yea, I´m confused allready. No eastern languages for me, lol

edit: Great missread the title. Naturally.
