I speak German (native), English and Italian. And French, if I need to. Learning Spanish at the moment, for my job. I have also done courses in Ivrit (modern Hebrew), Chinese (Mandarin) and Turkish but not much remains of those, unfortunately. I would like to speak (but not learn ;-)) Arabic and modern Greek. I did ancient Greek and ancient Hebrew at university (all gone now) and Latin at school (some of which has remained - being surrounded by it here in Rome helps).
American, took 3 years and understand a little spanish and worked in a Mexican Resturant for 3 yrs (spanish didn't improve at all). I took a japanese class,but nothing ever stuck enough for me to speak.
French, English, some Slovak a bit of spanish. And 3 words of Hungarian.
I speak french (native) and english. I'm surprised about how many people here speak or know something in french !
Hello Mario! But we are (French from France, living in France) not so many. But as you said many people here write or know something in French and it's the magic thing of TuDiabetes!
English is my native tounge, Yiddush was a second language learned at home . . .although by now I'm probably a litte rusty now because of lack of use. I also learned to read and write Classical Hebrew, the language of the Torah.
I think you mean Yiddish?

I studied Spanish when I lived in Guatemala for two years, but never got to the fluent level. I love the language and have decided to go back to studying with my teacher from there via Skype starting tomorrow!
Oy vey, I can't spell anymore!! :)
English (native), ASL, and Spanish. I am learning Greek now.
I speak Turkish (native) and English.
English and a very, very small amount of Swedish (I do know all the words to Basshunter's Boten Anna though). :)
I live in Wales and speak Welsh as my first language but English is still the most used language in Wales.
