I've studied Spanish, Japanese and Russian. I wouldn't rely on my knowledge of those languages for a minute.

I understand written and spoken German. I suppose my ability to speak it fluently is coming along.

I'm involuntarily picking up Mandarin and Hokkien...though mainly Hokkien (the crude man's Chinese )

Clearly, my English reeks of ineptitude, as i've only been immersed in it for a little over 22 years.

So i'm not sure where that leaves me.

hmm, dutch of course
I read and speak english and german (though - because I use it far more often - it's easier for me to communicate in english than in german)

I do know some french, but not a lot
+ I have to read it, because otherwise it just goes too fast for me

Only the one. But at school, when its pretty much compulsory to learn one, we did French. And while I dont think I'd ever need it if I learned it properly, I found it relatively easy. But they say its easier to learn when you're young, so I doubt I'll ever try and learn another now.

I learnt French at School, and was pretty good at it, but as I haven't used it in 9 years it's more than a little rusty now. I did a year of Spanish too, but managed to learn nothing useful at all. I also studied Latin, which I suppose is classed as a language! So I can translate Latin to a certain degree, but it's not really a language you learn to speak!

I said two, because I speak two completely fluently - English and Croatian.

I lived in Austria for a period of time and my grandfather is German, so I can understand a bit.

My French is good enough to get by in tourist places, and I can actually read it quite well.
