I'm fluent in Australian and New Zealand....
I lived in London for 2 years, so I can get by in English
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?

I speak some German and very little Spanish and Japanese. I took Spanish for a year in high school and Japanese for a year in college. When I transfered to my new college this year, I found them to have a decent German program, so I switched over to it, as that is always the language I have wanted to learn anyway.

English. I took 6 years of French, but that was 14 years ago, so I have forgotten nearly all of what I knew. I can understand written French pretty well, but that's about it. I would like to learn Tagalog.

I'm sure you can get a deaf person to figure out "I'm hungry" though. ;)

I speak, read, and write American. I had 3-4 years of Spanish in highschool (read, write, speak) so I was semi-fluent.

I knew/know a tiny bit of Norwegian, German, Indian, Polish, English (British Slang), Japanese, and Thai.
Not enough to do anything with.


I want to learn to speak/read/write Thai. I think it be totally rad. but thats just me.

:lachmal: HERO said "rad". And here I was thinking I was all alone in keeping old school slang alive. LOL :)

Back to languages...I can sing in Italian, French, German, Latin, English, Gaelic, and Spanish. All of my foreign language vocabulary is very poetic and melodramatic, so no practical things like forks or bathroom locations pour moi! However, I did study French for many years and I'm currently re-studying it and I am continuing to learn Italian also right now. I LOVE foreign languages!! :) They are MUIS sexy....well most of them.:)

My Spanish was revived recently when I started speaking with my Mexican neighbors. I still can only have basic conversations, but I think it's all good.

Double Dutch.
