I speak one. (can you guess which one?) When I have been drinking, ~half of one.

 

Share with us you multilingual skills.

 

(Note: a programming language or math doesn't count. We are talking about spoken/written langues, please.)

I can speak Castillian Spanish (Castellano) moderately. Enough to get by in a basic conversation.

 

I can read and write in Classical Latin and Homeric Greek, although I'm much more proficient in Latin. Composition is difficult in both though. And I certainly can't hold a conversation in either.

Why don't programming languages count? Since we speak so much with text being the only medium (such as here) I think programming languages are valid... They are read by other humans just as much as they are by compilers...

 

But since I'm barred from adding programming languages... I barely speak English as many here can often see in my posts. English is also my only language...

French is my native language, I also obviously speak English. I know bits of Spanish but not enough to understand a real conversation.

I can speak 3, English Panjabi and Hindi

I've been thinking about learning some Eastern European languages, but haven't decided which to start with, so not to offend anyone I'll name the languages by country as I'm not 100% sure of the name of the languages..

the language spoken in Czech Republic, and I would like to learn French and German,

I speak English primarily and a little bit of Spanish.  I couldn't carry on a drawn out conversation, but I can get directions, order food in a restaurant, and if I see something written I can usually figure out what it means.  I'm just not fluent.

 

I've been interested in learning to speak Cherokee for a while since my great grandfather was a full blooded Cherokee indian, but he is long dead and none of my relatives speak it since we're not associated with the reservations.  I just think it's kind of nifty and if I could learn a little bit it would pay homage to that part of my heritage.

 

Have also been curious about Gaelic for the same reason as Cherokee.  On my dad's side I have some Scottish blood in there, and would like to learn a little bit of Scottish Gaelic.

 

At the end of the day, the only language I can fluently speak and communicate in is English.

English and Spanish. Spanish is a necessity here in Southern California.

English, German and Turkish. Little bit Japanese, as I'm still trying to continue my lessons. Then I'm also planning to start learning Russian.

Native English speaker. I also know some very basic phrases and a few numbers in German, and even less Spanish.

 

So 1 and a quarter.

I'm a native Bulgarian speaker, but I speak English, German and Serbian. right now I'm studying Spanish. Needless to say Russian is next, since it's derived from Bulgarian.

Just English, though I understand some basic Spanish from high school Spanish class. My grandparents are/were native Swedish speakers, but they never passed the language on to their children. My family always called us tokig (tookee) as kids which means crazy or wild I guess. That's about the extent of it though.

Native Romanian speaker. Obviously English, and a little bit of French (still working on that). I might be able to understand some Spanish and maybe just maybe some German.

I'm not anti programming or math as languages. Arguably, more logic exists in those forms of expression than spoken languages, I just wanted to know what spoken languages people speak. :)

Enlighten us, what is Telugu? (I know I could Google it, but that doesn't encourage much discussion, does it?)

Hello,

Why don't programming languages count?

Because it is not a language where you can have a communication in, put signs, etc. Its not a real language.

At best, it would be a variant of English...

I speak two. Plan to one day learn Chinese.
