How many languages do you speak?

Looks like there are many multilingual people on this board as it is so international.
I'm curious how many languages you do or can speak n what languages they are.


I speak only Japanese and English. Right now I'm trying to learn Korean.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

dutch

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

i learned the basic things you should know in dutch at school.
I'll do an italian cours soon. i'm thinking about studying anglistic and romanistic or languanges from eastern europe like russian and so

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"

Das größte Hindernis des Lebens ist die Erwartung,
die vom Morgen abhängt.
Du verlierst den heutigen Tag ; was in der Hand des Schicksals
liegt, ordnest du, was in der deinigen, lässest du fahren.
Wohin richtest du deine Blicke, wohin deine Gedanken?
Alles, was kommen wird, steht unsicher ; lebe für die Gegenwart.
