English is about it really. I can stay some things in Spanish and French but cant carry on a conversation. I can also count 1-10 in Chinese or Japanese(I dont remember what one it is.)

Have a great weekend, too!

Tagalog and English are the 2 languages I know. A little bit of Spanish.

Salamat kaibigan!
(Thank you, friend in Tagalog)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sad to say, I only speak English. I can recognize a few Spanish words, but not many. :(

I am Harriet said...

Yeah! You're doing AF!

English is the only language that I fell confident in saying I can speak fluently.

tracy said...

only?

lol... you're a linguistic genus, girl!

I can do some French. I read it much better than I speak it (or can hear it...)

Thanks for the heads up! I think I made it more user friendly, would you mind checking back and seeing if it's right? I'm new to blogging. Thanks!!

Only English. I can speak and understand some Spanish but not much!

Tracy said...

do you have any ideas on how i can make that happen? i've been poking around and don't really know how.

oh, and i only know english. i was working on french at livemocha.com because i want to teach my daughter, but i haven't worked on it in a while.

Chris said...

Only English unless you count the strange dialect of my two year old daughter. Have a great weekend!

Kelly said...

I speak English, and can get along ok in French (read it better than speak it). I can also hold decent conversatiosn with a 3 year old in Spanish and american sign language.

Suzanne said...

Only one, unfortunately. But, I am currently learning french so all is not lost:-)

ModernMom said...

Ummm 1. :)
But I can order a beer and ask how to find the bathroom in Spanish!

The Holmes Crew said...

Sadly I can only speak one fluently...dabble in Russian and Portugues

Morgan said...

Only one very well. I have a second language I used to be understand fairly well, but it's fallen by the wayside lately.

Lin said...

English, that's about it. I remember a lot of my Spanish from high school, but "Mi gato is negro" (My cat is black) doesn't get you too far. Especially when the black cat died about 20 years ago. Sigh.

Uh, I communicate pretty well with the kitties, does that count??

How many do I know? I know plenty but I can barely speak more than English.

I studied French in high school and college and a bit of German in college too. Now I live in southern California so I've picked up some Spanish too. I know a couple words in Arabic and Mandarin.

Unfortunately I'm horrible at languages and always have been.

Banteringblonde said...

I used to speak German fairly well... not so much anymore!

Jennifer said...

Primary: English
Understand completely, but not fluent speaker: Filipino dialect, Ilocano and some Tagalog
Speak/Write a little: French
