I only speak English well. I can fake my way through Spanish if I have to.

What's your first language and how many others can you speak?

I speak my native language Serbian but since it belongs to the group of Slavic languages you could say that I also speak Bosnian, Croatian, Macedonian, Montenegrian smile.gif (if thats the right way to describe it) smile.gif

English is my fairly strong second language, I could speak a little bit of Greek but understand it well, and I learned some Italian for a year but that didn't work for me laugh.gif

Turkish as my native language, English and French, some Latin (educational purposes) and maybe I can understand a little Italian and Spanish because they share the same family as Latin and French.

Faroese as native and first language, Danish as second (dont like to speak it). Norwegian as well as my native language, understand spoken and written Swedish but not so good at speaking it, the same goes for German, and my English is at a relatively good level:). and i can understand Icelandic quite well when its written but its hard to understand spoken:)

Does Dog language count?

Other than that, I listen to Spanish lessons a lot. I bought two series. Both good, I recommend them.

Rocket Spanish
Learning Spanish Like Crazy.

Best I have seen in my view.

edit:

I just by chance went for the link, and damn, they used me as a spokesman.

Norwegian as my native. Englis close to perfect, nearly as a 2nd language:) i understand german, and i can talk my way to an understanding with a german, without using english. Im in the middle of high school education of spanish. And Swedish and danish is no problem to understand, since its so similar to Norwegian.
