    I had a training cd (was delivered in the collector's box of one of the star trek games) once, but I really couldn't stop laughing and had to quit quite fast...

    You should grade how much you know of that language, I can say a few words on a lot of languages, but I can speak or write and UNDERSTAND on a level from 1 to 5:

    1. Portuguese 5 (but not just because it's my native language )
    2. English 5
    3. Spanish 5
    4. Italian 3
    5. French 3
    6. German 1 (or 0 I donno, but I can count a lot! )

    1. Spanish is my first language.

    2. I read and write English all the time, but almost never speak.
    See any mistakes? Please tell me! I need to improve my English.

    Latin is a pretty cool language. It helps alot with your english vocabulary and it helps if you wanted to learn a Latin based langauge (spanish, french, etc.)

    Tongue-tied

    Hello all,

    Just joined up today. Super interesting forum!!

    Grew up bilingually in German and English. Then I picked up Spanish (univ. and on the job) and Japanese (while living in the country).

    Spanish and Catalan are my first languages.

    I can also speak English (obviously) and I can understand written Dutch/Italian/Portuguese/French to a certant extent.

    And I'm trying to learn some Japanese, tho I don't practice too often and keep forgetting words

    grew up with Dutch and got bilingual taught since i was eleven. One of the best things i've done (go to bilingual education).... furthermore reasonable German (especially sprechen), same goes for French (although I don't like that one...) few lessons of spanish, that's about it
