Languages

Just out of curiousity, how many people here speak a second language? If you do speak more than one language, which languages can you speak?

I only speak one language right now, but I'm learning either Japanese, Chinese or Korean next school year...I just have to decide which to learn!

I couldn't vote because I'm sort of bi-tri lingual, yet...well. I can speak enough French to get along, and I can understand Italian enough to get along (although I won't speak it reallY0, so I'm only partially tri-lingual. Add to it my limited understanding of Slovenian and well. This is the mess that is me.

I can't speak it, but I can read and understand Spanish quite well.

I can also count to 10 and say "good morning Mr. Teacher and good morning Miss Carlson" in German

I speak some Spanish. My Spanish is good enough, for example, to understand that a guy is hitting on me *extremely* suggestively, although I couldn't understand *exactly* what he was saying (all I could positively make out was "come back to my house after work").

English, of course, and spoke Spanish when I was 4 and took it in high school, but only know bits & pieces now. Oh, and enough French to get in trouble with the hotel guy in Paris when we yelled back and forth about the toilet in our room not working (he insisted that it was OK, since the toilet in the NEXT room worked...and I insisted that <ahem> if the paper wasn't going to go down when you flushed...nothing ELSE was gonna go down!)

Nice. real nice.
