    Ok I'm the guy who voted the "Yes i speak more than 4 because I like to show-off" etc.
    Lol!:p

    Ok I actually speak apart from Greek,English,then I had French at school for 6 years but I don't remember much.I've had Arabic lessons for 2 years and I must continue them soon because I don't like stop learning a language.I can speak a bit of Spanish and I want to learn Spanish(I wanted it since I went to school).And i can also speak a bit of Turkish and I hope I can learn more with a very good book that I have ;)

    Apart from that I can speak a tiny bit of Norwegian,Finnish,Italian and a few phrases in Japanese.

    I want to learn some German too.We also had Ancient Greek at school for about 6 years or so and Latin in the last 2 years of school.But Latin's almost a dead language.

    Apart from English I speak German (fluently, ha!), Dutch and a tiny little bit of French.

    I've been learning Dutch at school for 2 years now, and although I still have problems using this language in conversations I'm able to express myself in writing... though I still often need dictionaries.
    And French... well, I still know a few words and phrases! Yay me!
    At least I know how to say que je ne parle pas français. :p

    Dutch are a bit difficult,huh? :p

    No offense to the Dutch people but I always considered Dutch as a language that sounds very bad along with Portuguese which I hate and Hebrew.Although I don't consider Hebrew as a language that sounds so bad now,just a bit weird.

    Oui c'est terrible que je ne parle les francais plus,mais c'est une langue tres interessent et je voudrais ...je voudrais....eee.....je voudrais...I'd want to learn how to speak French better dammit,that's it!Arrghhh!:p

    I'd settle for passable German really, or passable Spanish

    @ Foi: Nah, Dutch isn't really that difficult if you're mother tongue is German - and if you used to speak Low German fluently as a child. :p
    Dutch and German are quite similar, especially the grammar. No problem as long as you keep on learning the vocabulary.

    lol Wat een mooi liedje. We had to listen to a few Dutch songs during our lessons. That was quite a lot of fun, mostly because I never understood a word of what has been said in the songs - until I got the lyrics...

    @ I.R.: That could be helpful. Not that I've ever done that before... :rolleyes:

    yeah, but I don't want to dig up the folder I used... as for the songs, in German I could usually understand one or two words here or there, usually because he'd just taught us a lot of them

    I speak English (orly?), German (duh), French, Dutch, Tagalog and a bit Spanish.

    When I was little my mum talked in English, Tagalog and sometimes in Spanish with me while my dad taught me German.
    Later, I learned French and Dutch at school.

    Rather multilingual, I'd say :p

    I speak Portuguese and a little bit of french, I can understand some French but I couldn't carry out a very lengthy conversation....(4 years of french classes down the drain :D) But it comes in handy when the french side of something is pointed towards me...I don't have to turn it around to read the english side...I know it's amazing :D

    LOL...Moi aussi ;p

    Dutch is my first language and I agree with Foinikas it's not the most beautiful language in the world :) but hey, it suffices to tell what we need to say to each other.
    My other languages are English and German.
    I speak only a little French, not even enough to ask for the bill in a restaurant (as I discovered last winter :D)
    Glad almost the rest of the world does speak English.
