    I took Spanish in high school, but only managed to learn the basic grammatical structure and a pathetic number of vocab words due to lack of language skills. Now, I'm taking Chinese in college and it's going surprisingly well. Maybe I'll even go study in China for a semester or for a summer.

    I know English, Vietnamese, and Portuguese.

    I'm actually learning Portuguese in college right now and I think I'm going to major in it. I actually have been studying it for some time now. I took a few classes in high school. It's fun and I seem to have a knack for it.

    Fluent Danish + English.
    SOME German (mostly just travel level xD) and I can understand Swedish/Norwegian, but would probably never be able to have a conversation in the language.

    I am fluent in Norwegian and English, and I can read and understand Danish, Swedish and some Icelandic, like Freja I would not be able to hold a conversation in the languages though. :)

    I'm about to take my fourth year of Spanish. I'd really like to learn French or Italian, but unfortunately my tiny school doesn't offer either Dx

    I guess Spanish will be a lot more helpful for me (lots of Hispanics in the area), but I think Italian would just be awesome.

    I come from a land down under! (Maaaate!)
    LOL clearly not well English ;)

    I speak English only.

    Used to know VERY BASIC Italian and Indonesian. (I can still count to ten in Italian ;)) But I've forgotten the rest.

    I would really like to learn other languages.. I think its amazing to know multiple. I'm very jealous of those that can speak multiple.

    I'm pretty fluent in English and Filipino. I plan to take up Mandarin when I have some spare time, possibly in college, as an elective.

    All the rich Chinese know it ;)
