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.
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 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!
