soon enough it'll not be that you can't read that you're at a disadvantage, but rather that you aren't multilingual... [es un razon que estoy apprendiendo espanol]... so, see above...

and PS, yay i have a good chance of going to spain and france for a trip with school... right on!!! 1700 USD tho, but i can save that... eventually... :)

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*.

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 :p (just kidding)
Same goes for the Belgian people(at least the flamish part of Belgium). We have to learn other languages.

I speak English fluently...I'm learning Spanish, and my dialect of Chinese which is close to Cantonese.
