    Does anyone here speak a language other than English ... uh, and Elvish?



    Just wondering.


    I took two years of French in high school. Got straight As. Was president of the French club.

    Do I speak French? No!

    But I did understand most of Cyrano DeBergerac ... and it really helped when we went to Canada!

    I am fluent in Spanish. Lived south of the (USA) border from the time I was 8 until I turned 14.

    I took a couple years of German in high school but never really became fluent in it. I still remember some German but not enough to maintain much of a conversation.

    I served a mission in the Dominican Republic from 1991 to 1993 and have been using Spanish ever since. I consider myself to be fluent in Spanish.

    Polish and Norwegian + I'm on my way to bring my French to life again.
    I've learnt German for 8 years but I can't say almost anything (except from Ich will meine Augen auskratzen xD)
    For half a year I've learnt Icelandic but it was amazingly difficult so I don't really speak it.
    I've learnt Swedish and can understand it, but mostly because I speak Norwegian. It's the same with written Danish.

    I was never any good at languages so I can speak English just about lol and I used to speak Latin but I cant remember it much now. I did at one time speak pretty good Orkish (40k Orks) way waaaaay back when I started Warhammer 40k.

    My wife is from Russia and so speaks Russian and English fluently and is currently learning Mandarin.

    I took spanish in high school, but all I remember is what everyones spanish name was, gordo means fat and feo means ugly. When your 16 thats the only three things you need to know for hours of childish giggling.

    Well, I took two years of Spanish classes in middle school, then another two years in high school. But all I got from them were a few words and silly phrases. For instance, oso means bear. Tengo un gato morado entros mis pantalones. Yeah, stupid stuff...
