    I know enough Spanish to direct the guys who do my landscaping, and I'm functional with Japanese.

    >I speak 1337 and English.
    I speak leet too, but I don't put it on my resume.

    Nice, Japanese. How hard was that to learn (I've done Spanish and, IMO, it's not very hard, same alphabet and all)?

    Not very. My biggest problem was getting a handle on sentence building. You have to think harder about what you're going to say before you say it because you can't just tack on extras like English.

    >I've done Spanish
    Japanese is similar to Spanish, but it's also more regular. You'd probably find it pretty easy.
