Portuguese is my mother tongue, like any brazilian

I can speak, read and write in english, although I know I have a lot to learn.

Also I can read and understand spanish, most of the time...but I still haven┤t got courage to actually speak spanish. Does that count?

I'm a sad case. I know English and my parents are from Mexico BUT like everybody else I'm loosing it! I just don't speak it on a regular basis anymore. So when I go back to Mexico and visit family I feel like an idiot trying to talk. I also took a year of french in high school!!

Oh Martha, I'm sure the other languages will come back with a little practice.

I speak English and Tagalog (Filipino). I am taking French classes (can understand and speak a bit).

I can also speak a little Spanish, very little Arabic and I can read and write Russian, but can't understand it.

English is my native language, I also speak German pretty well. I studied German in school for 5 years. So, I can understand German better than I can speak/write it. It takes me like 2 hours to write my German friend one e-mail

I would like to learn Spanish. I took it for like 6 weeks in school so I know a few sentences. Also my best friend lives in Nicaragua - I think it would be cool to talk to him in Spanish

Speak: English

Studied Russian, Spanish, Latin. Out of those three, I can only speak Russian. I can write, read, and understand spoken Russian pretty well. I just can't speak it. In Russian class I'd get A's on papers and then D's on orals.
