I've been thinking about learning Braille, but it's a rather touchy subject.

I've forgotten enough French not to be able to carry a conversation, but remembered enough that I got around Paris without speaking English. Cali girl, so I know enough Spanish to: find a bathroom, order food and beer, know when someone is swearing. So just English I guess. ;)

I am ashamed to say just one. Not my strong area at all.

I can barely speak English.
So, no. I only (barely know English! (And I went to parochial school.)
I dabble in Spanish now and then BC of my son's wife.

Anderson Cooper wanted to try his hands at a little French, so I told him that Gerard Depardieu is only 2" flaccid.

English is my 4th language, I speak 3 fluently but can understand conversations in a number of Slavic and Romance languages. Learned out of necessity while I was a child refugee.

English fluently, I can speak Spanish and French enough to survive on, and could probably get better pretty quickly if I took the time to study them again.

English fluently, Spanish and German I can read well but speak not so much.

I took a Chinese class in college (Harvey Mudd) sophmore year just because I needed something to fill my schedule. I ended up loving it, and changed my major. I've since picked up some Japanese and Tagalog as well.

None, I barely speak broken English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and German. I can read Romanian and French.
I am still studying all of them in order to be understood by other people.

English & Spanish fluently, "passable" Italian, and I can understand Portuguese but can't speak it, LOL:)

Spanish and English, a little bit of Italian, and I can sing (pronounce) German, Russian, Swahili, Latin and French - if I really have to. Hate singing in French. Last time I tried to learn a language was last year before we went to Italy. It wasn't impressive!

Fairylights said...

LOL! My Hubby is a Harvey Mudd graduate, always good to see another one around!

OKay said...

English and enough French and Italian to get by (badly) if I had to.

*And I was told I have a learning disability. The other two are easier for me to spell in bcuz they are phonetic. I often spell what I hear. English is harder that way.
