Any of you guys speak other languages? Check English ONLY IF ENGLISH IS NOT YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE Anywho, I don't speak other languages besides a dabble of Vietnamese phrases, but as I said, it's dabble.

Ah, crap, how do I edit polls?

Though I'm not very fluent, I speak a good deal of Spanish. Three years has to count for something, right?

I'm fluent in English and Spanish. Can't say which one came first though, learned them both at the same time as I was growing up.

I seriously think formal classes make everything so complicated... but since I learned it naturally I guess that's just my opinion.

I'm learning Japanese at the moment. Not enough to be fluent (I haven't done a year yet), though.

Eh, this poll lacks the possibility to check multiple choices because English is not my only second language, I'm also able to.... well, not speak, but understand Latin. And I have really really realy broken French knowledge, but seriously, French sucks.

I can speak Northern English AND Southern English. That takes some beating.

Terribly sorry, that was an accident on me. Like, I said how do I edit polls? Of should we just get rid of this one and make a new one? Until then just vote "other" if you speak more than one.

I have a bit of French within me from when I was at school, but it is all fading away.

I do remember one phrase that will ALWAYS help you though.

"Je suis un anglais imbecile"

That'll make things clear. :P

I want to learn another language, but I'd need a lot more spare time. Honestly, I'd have loved to have learnt another from childhood (it's much easier apparently).

Truth. It's much easier to learn a language growing up. But formal languages throw in linguistics, because when you're a native speaker, you know what sounds right by instinct, but when you're not, you have to have someone explain it to you.

Me, now...I've taken a bit of Spanish and three years of Japanese. And I can't really speak either at all. Or write properly. I am forever in awe of people who are at least semi-fluent in a second language.

While I am far from fluency, I have started studying french. At my school, it's a requirement to take a language for at least two years. My school offers spanish, french, chinese, and american sign language.
I chose french because spanish seemed too . . . common, I suppose, chinese is difficult, and american sign language is practically impossible for freshman to get into.
So that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Well, I'm native German, so English would be my second language.

I speak multiple languages, but I'm most fluent in Chinese and English (because I AM Chinese and I'm an American). I can speak a little French and VERY little Italian, and only the commonly known Spanish words (besides mierda, I learned that from a translated forum post).

...WAIT WAIT WAIT WOAH, YoshiFriends333, you're Chinese too?! O____O

I could have learned Tagalog growing up but I didn't because my mom just taught me broken english.

I do understand a little Japanese, French, German, and Spanish.

Since there are no ultiple options allowed, I went for my native language. Aside that I can speak a few other ones to a modest degree.

I can speak English, Tagalog, and German.

I took classes in German and picked up most of what I know about Tagalog through my mom.

My first language is Portuguese. I think English can be considered my second language, as I'm the top of the class at it, and maybe even of the school, but I still have a LOT to learn.

Hey, who's the other Portuguese here?

I know a little french, but not enough to understand a single word my french teacher speaks.
Even though i got an A- in that subject.

I'm in Spanish II at school. That basically means I can do stuff in Spanish countries (I've gone to Guatemala and Costa Rica, and used Spanish well), but not hold a serious conversation in the language.
