I'm mega super fluent in English. Quite a feat since it is my first language

I used to speak Spanish fluently, but lost it when I stopped having constant contact with it.

Mais mantinant, je parle le francais tres bien parce que j'ai pris les courses de francais pour 6 ans.

I speak English, but I'm in 10th grade Spanish in school, and I was able to pick up a little Italian when I was there last summer.

I speak Japanese (fluently I guess, I lived in Japan for 2 years, minored in Japanese in school, and did Japan relations for a company for the last year)

Foreign languages are English and French, both in school, French could be better though.

I hated Latin for 6 years. But it was easy to learn Italian, which is my third language, even if I dont know the grammatics very well - but hey, its enough for doing business. And I am able to speak a few words in Indonesian, which I learned 15 years ago.

I speak Dutch fluently...

Besides that...German, English(I do my best...), French, Spanish, little bit Portugese and Irish.
I'd love to learn Italian and Russian.

Mother tongue is Cantonese, which is a Chinese dialect. I can speak ok Putonghua(i.e. Mandarin) and English. My English is slightly better than my Putonghua.

Learned French for a few months but i don't think i can say i 'know' french...

i only speak english however i do know some spanish. i should know spanish like the back of my hand considering my background, but i don't. lol anyway i can pretty much read spanish and understand it when i hear it spoken but don't you dare ask me to start a conversation off in Spanish, i will just look at you like a fool and deny that i know spanish. i am a sad case.

i also took a half of year of french in high school and know very very little of it.
