    <sarcasm>I'm not sure, but I think I've got the whole English thing down now.</sarcasm> I can read French fairly well, and I can write decent enough French, but my aural comprehension is not nearly perfect, and my speaking skills need much more practice. I'm also learning Latin, and that is somewhat tougher than French. Whenever I try to pronounce Latin, it seems to mutate into some proto-Romance language as the pronunciation errors and accidental pronunciations like French ("qui" pronounced as /ki:/ rather than /kwi:/, "v" pronounced as /v/ rather than /w/, underpronunciation or nil pronunciation of inflectional suffixes, etc.) accumulate.

    <sarcasm>I haven't really tried at it, but I had a little too much trouble understanding "Hello, World" in Brainfrick to program in that language.</sarcasm>
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.

    I can read and speak English, Kannada, Hindi, Sanskrit and i can talk Malayalam, Telugu... And i am a novice programmer.. have programmed a couple of pet games like chess etc.. And you will notice that most Indians talk more than 4 to 5 languages since we have more than 27 states each having its own language.. We actually have around 120 and odd different languages in our country and you will also find that India has a huge IT resource (brain power).. I think that should answer all your questions..

    I've also created a two of my own (based on Japanese and Quenya) that are constantly evolving.
    Quenya? Isn't that the language Tolkien created? What was that based on...
    "Think not but that I know these things; or think
    I know them not: not therefore am I short
    Of knowing what I ought."
    -John Milton, Paradise Regained (1671)

    "Work hard and it might happen."

    The only langauge Quenya borrows from that I know of is Finnish.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Fairly fluent in Spanish, and speak a little French, German, and Thai. Born to program.
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
