    Fluent in German (obviously). More or less fluent in English.

    I like English, it seems to be easier than German.


    It's astounding what vocabulary you learn... I could probably ask computer questions, tell vampire stories or explain my latest war gaming strategy, but don't expect me to order food that is more than a burger in English I would like to have.... uhm... this *points*.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Dutch, Frisian, English and German. And a little French and I can read Danish. We Dutchmen need to learn foreign languages since very less people in the world speak Dutch.

    Dutch, French and English. Planning on learning German in the near future

    >>We Dutchmen need to learn foreign languages since very less people in the world speak Dutch.

    Isn't those 5 million flamish people not enough for you (just kidding)
    Same goes for the Belgian people(at least the flamish part of Belgium). We have to learn other languages.
