    I learned Spanish and English at the same time growing up and I'm currently learning German in college ( all the der,die, das is the hardest part for me). I want to pick up French too. I had taken some Italian in middle school but don't remember any of it sadly.

    Oh my goodness. Der, die, das still messes me up. I get so fed up with it. You just kind of have to memorize it.

    I find that learning languages is a great thing to put effort into. I am actually interested in German and Japanese. I currently know French (rusty), English. And I'm learning Greek right now.

    I speak fluent English and Swedish, moderate German, and I'm learning Japanese, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, Icelandic, and Russian. By no means am I any good at any of the aforementioned languages because I'm still learning.

    Fluent in English, French, German, Spanish and Afrikaans, conversationally fluent in Bengali and Hindi, 6 years of school Gaelic, 2 years of University Korean, tiny bit of Hebrew.

     

    Languages are kind of my thing, I'm a bit of a nut for them, same with music. I'm fairly average at about everything else but I'm absolutely obsessed with languages.

    I used to speak Spanish and French well enough to have conversations in it. Now I can understand about a third of what I hear and have a very basic conversation in Spanish and speak enough French to count out change and greet people. I am thinking of picking one of those and making an effort to regain my skill.

    I speak English and although I grew up listening to Spanish, I rebelled and refused to learn/speak it. I'm learning it now in college.

    I started learning German when I was 12, but when I graduated high school I never used it again. I regret that, because I was really good.

    I am a native French speaker (as you could guess), I believe I'm fairly fluent in English. Good level in German too, I understand very well what I hear and I can manage a spoken conversation but a bit rubbish at writing/spelling. Some bases in Portuguese, Afrikaans, Shangan and Swahili, but nowhere near a conversation level.

     

    As to learning tips, obviously the best way is exposure, ideally direct but you can go quite far with movies/shows/books. I would recommand learning from context rather than learning endless list of words. And look up the chunking technique, I found it usefull to improve my English level one step further.

    I’m fluent in Arabic and English and am learning ASL!
    I’m interested in finding out though does anyone else on here speak Arabic ?
    It would be cool to meet someone (especially another little) to communicate with !

    Spanish is my mother tongue, but I started learning English at a very young age (I went to a British school and actually started reading/writing in English first), so I consider myself to be bilingual and fluent at both.

     

    I studied French for 7 years, I understand it well, but have some trouble writing and speaking it.

     

    I know some Italian and French, as I took classes in high school and lived/studied in Milan for a couple months.

     

    I also understand some basic words and concepts and words in German and Japanese.

     

    I'd love to have a penpal, if anyone wants to help me perfect my French or Italian skills, I could help you with your Spanish or English <3

    My mother tongue is German. I am fluent in English, Russian, and Arabic. Speak decent Pashto and Urdu. My Spanish used to be good, but has gone to hell.

    I speak Zulu, Sotho (indigenous languages I will only get use here at home lol) and English well. I was learning French and Japanese, then I found kpop and kdramas and started with Korean. I only ever briefly touched Mandarin because of reasons. Now in the new year I'm only going to focus on two languages I want to take on for the next three years and French is one of them.

    I love Duolingo and also recommend memrise(I think that's what it is) and some rosetta stone. Alternatively there are language courses on udemy and the other collage course mobile app/ learning website.

    こどもに、日本語をべんきょうしました. いま、日本語をわかります.
    「I studied Japanese as a child (began at 12). Now I understand.」
    Currently in school I'm learning French, and Hebrew on my own since I'll be visiting Tel'Aviv soon! XD
