Let's find out about your culture, by means of language! Post what languages you know by this scale:
4+: You fluently speak a language from birth in that country.
4: You are fluent, but learned the language and wasn't born there or had parents who speak it.
3: You speak well, you know much grammar, and can basically hold up any conversations except for some specialized areas.
2: You are getting better, but you still don't have a command on speaking yet.
1+: A bit stronger form of 1, but closer to 1 than 2.
1: You can hold a small conversation, such as asking for things, and have some of the grammar in mind.
0+: You know the alphabet and some (12+) words.
0: Don't know, but would like to learn.
So for me:
So let's see what everyone here speaks!
This goes right along with 2005 being the "Year Of Languages". We really need to learn other peoples languages. There are 6000+ languages in the world, and over HALF (3000+ languages) will dissapear by the end of this century.
