I was curious and was wondering if anyone spoke more than six languages or no language at all... I also want to know how many languages people on BC speak...
Basically, I am just curious.. :flowers:

I speak English, Chinese (Mandarin), Taiwanese, and I am learning Japanese

I can read/write fluently with English. However I can recognize a few things while reading and/or listening to Spanish.

Cool cgm3. I took 2 years of Spanish in HS. But the 2nd year we had a crappy teacher (she didn't really teach us anything). So thats why I can only recognize a few words.

My primary language is English, but I can speak enough Spanish that I understood what that waiter called me at Maria's Tocos. :thumbsup:

Well, born as I was, when I was, I was too scared to try and talk to begin with on that day!
(On an airplane flying from Canada to USA at end of WWII.)

Took me nearly two or three years to get my voice back (My Mom said I cried very little as a baby/child.).

So I guess my first language was "goo-gah". (It is a dying language, you know.)

My parents spoke several languages... each.... Though, not always communicating.
(English, Welsh, German, French, W.Va. hillbilly, some Spanish and another language that I've still to figure out.)

In grade/grammar/HS I was privileged to study several languages I already knew from home environment.

College courses brought Ancient Greek and refreshers in Spanish, Latin and German.

Military service offered studies in Russian, Thai, Chinese, Viet Namese, Lao, Hebrew, Arabic, Urdu, Pushtu,
and modern Greek with some Turkish on the side, etc.
(I probably forgot some here...)

Speak? Many. Fluent? Few. Read and write? Hah...!

(BTW - what's this dictionary thing people are referring to?)

I checked "none".

What was your question?

I only speak one language.. English. But I can recognize some words in writing, in French & Spanish.

French and English for me. I'm like the ultimate, peace-loving Canadian.

I speak English fluently, French almost fluently (been taking it since 5th grade), and Pig Latin almost fluently. I did count all of those, so I said 3, but only 2 are "real".

I seem to have never learnde "goo-gah"! I think I went straight to "aba aba aba aba!" :thumbsup:

Pig Latin?

Ok, I only know one language, English, and I have trouble with that one!

Of course, music is the universal language, and I am a musician.
