    Hi,

    My first language is swedish, but I can speak english quite well too. I have also taken some classes in german in school a couple of years ago, but I have forgotten most of it.

    Yours, Erik.

    Punjabi is my Mother Tongue but I end up using English more than any other language

    Ah well, other languages that I know (somewhat!) -

    Spanish , French (Now, you better not try and test them on me )
    Hindi (Well, People do make fun of me when I try to speak in hindi cos I speak it in Punjabi accent and end up using more Punjabi Words than Hindi words )

    Oi. Hor koi etthe punjabi nahin bolda?

    I'm Dutch (ha ha, I know, it's very funny), but my English is actually better in most cases.
    My German's not bad either and I understand quite a bit of French, but then again, all these languages are obligatory for my level of education (sh*tty Dutch education system, anyone?).

    Notice how the ESL people have better English grammar and spelling capabilities than native speakers.

    English isn't my first language, although Hindi is ... Fiji-Hindi...there's a subtle difference between the Hindi spoken by the indians from India and those from Fiji... .

    1. Hindi
    2. Urdu (paki/indian style)
    3. English
    4. Fijian
    5. A subtle understanding of the arabic language, although i can read it ...but just dont know what i am reading.

    English is my first language. I know a little Spanish and a few words in Russian (my mom is fluent in Russian and I live around about 50 Russian-speaking people.).
