    I can speak a bit of spanish...but that doesn't count I do live in California

    And I've gone this far without having trouble programming.

    I used to speak spanish very well (not quite fluent, but I could converse in it). Been 6 years, though, without any speaking, so I'm rusty. I know some Japanese as well. I don't have a hard time with grammar or syntax, but remembering all the words can be hard.

    And yes, I can program with ease.

    First of all, this belongs in general discussion.

    Secondly, I have trouble reading your post because of the way it is written.
    I really don't see the relevance between speaking a language other than English and programming skill.

    Anyhow I speak both Polish and French fluently. Also I understand most slavic languages.

    some entropy with that sink?

    I must say I'm just a novice programmer, and I'm currently learning French (Not too difficult, besides pronounciation)

    I am fluent in English and French, and am currently learning German. I have never had any trouble with programming languages. However, I believe this thread is more concerned with people who did not have English as a first language, seeing as most programming languages (if not all) are English based.

    I agree that unless some substantial link to c++ is made, this thread should be moved to GD. Mod?

    English, Spanish, Japanese and a little bit of Mandarin and Thai. I've also created a two of my own (based on Japanese and Quenya) that are constantly evolving. My biggest problem with spoken language is word order. I think in SVO, but I find I need SOV and VSO most commonly, that trips me up a bit. I've been a professional software engineer for about five years.

    I speak fairly fluent spanish (have trouble writting it though), and a little bit of german I picked up from one of my professors in school. He used to like to count iterations in german during lectures, and after a while I realized that I was catching myself doing the samething

    I am a full time professional.
