I speak English, Canotonese, a bit of Mandarin and very little French.

I'd love to learn Italian some day!

yay, i can now quote myself several years later and state that I have learned a few fun new languages in Peace Corps. In addition to getting my French up to par, I have learned Bambara and can greet in Songhai, Fula, and Tamasheq.

There aren't a lot of people around here, it seems...

Anyways, I read, write and speak English, Swedish, French, Spanish, German and Swedish Signlanguage. I also studied Latin, so I remember a lot from that. I know many phrases in Japanese, and two in Russian... I can say 'Good Day' and 'Cheers!'
The thing most people are impressed by, though, is that I can do pretty much any English accent existing, including an Irish accent, guess where I learn that from?

English is my native language, and the only one I can really speak fluently (although some of my posts might make you doubt that, lol). I took three years of French in middle/high school, but don't remember much of it, largely due to the fact that my high school French teacher was horrible. Nice guy, very smart, but could not teach at all - he would ramble on about his hobbies and how he had to work a second job because the school didn't pay him enough, blah blah blah, and hardly ever spoke any French. Now I'm taking my fourth semester of German in college, and progressing a bit more slowly than I would like, but it's coming along I suppose. I would love to learn Italian and Spanish as well.

Sulawesigirl4, I'm considering joining the Peace Corps when I get out of school and would love to hear about the experience from someone who's "been there, done that" - if you'd be interested in sharing, that is.

Old threads.

I was brought up speaking English, but I can also speak some simple Afrikaans. Most of my family can speak the latter fluently, but my family and I moved from South Africa before I had a chance to really get stuck into the language at school.

I've also taken a semester's worth of German, so I can say a few basic Deutsch phrases and order food if I ever decide to visit Germany.
