    Aye mates!
    I was just wondering, what languages can you speak? and Where did you learn them?

    here I go.

    Spanish: My mother tongue, so I speak/write it perfectly.

    English: My first foreign language. I've been learning it since I was 12 years old. I always got good marks at it, and now I'm studying English-Spanish translation I'm trying to improve it as much as I can. Written it's almost perfect I guess, and spoken, I have still a little bit of hispanic 'accent'.

    Those I can manage, but also I can understand some of Italian and Portuguese.

    So, what about you mates?

    Estonian is my mother tongue and obviously I'm most fluent in it.

    English is my first foreign language and I've studied it for about 14 years (started when I was 7), so speaking/writing in English isn't a problem for me either. And well, it's the language my studies are conducted so

    Russian is my second foreign language but I just know the basics. I used to study it in elementary school and a bit in high school as well (altogether about 6 years) but had to cancel my studies because of time issues. So in Russian I can talk really little but I understand it pretty well.

    Finnish is my third foreign language and I studied it for three years in high school but I'm still not fluent in it. I understand most of the written Finnish language when I read it and also when people speak it but I have some problems forming sentences to reply... BUT in few weeks I'm sure this problem is solved

    And my fourth foreign language is German. Also studied it in high-school for three years and my German knowledge is similar to Finnish. Nothing much but enough to know the basics.

    English is my mother tongue...have been speaking it and writing it since..hmmm....forever

    I also know basics of French as I studied it in school for several years, I just find it really hard making sentences in foreign languages :S

    I also know basics and phrases in Finnish but I am starting my language course in september so hopefully I'll be learning a lot more

    I wonder how hard would be spanish for you.. :P
    We have a lot of articles, and our verbal system has like 20 tenses. lol. Every verb has its conjugation for each pronoun, all of them have genre and number.

    Finnish = Mother tongue. Gotten a little rusty now, and I speak mostly "finglish". hehehe...

    English = Been studying since I was 9. I learned a lot from watching TV and then I went to language school twice abroad and spent a year as an exchange student. Been living in the US for the past 9 years, so my English is fluent. I sometimes make silly mistakes, but that's only human.

    Swedish = I used to be okay with it as I had to study it in school for 7 years, but it's gotten soooo rusty. I haven't spoken Swedish in years, but I think if I had to use it I'd be okay. I can understand more than I speak...

    French = I studied French for 6 years in school. I can still understand a little, but that too has rusted soo badly that I'd probably get lost in Paris. ugh...

    Spanish = Been forced to learn some words living in Florida. I can't converse in Spanish, but I wouldn't mind learning.

    Spanish: it's my mother tongue.

    English: I'm learning since I was 12 years old. I say learning because there's always something new to learn.


    German: I just started the basic level
