Topic title says it all.

I can speak Spanish (Mother Language), English, and a little bit of German.
And I would like to learn French and maybe Japanese(?).
Look, look with your special eyes...

English, French (75%), Spanish (70%).
The percentages are there to state that I can understand and carry a conversation in those languages.

I also know a bit of German, Japanese and Danish yet I am NOWHERE near good in Danish. I use to study Polish but I stopped A LONG TIME AGO. I can read Japanese and type it but cannot speak it for my life (I get afraid to pronounce something wrong and this carries to the other foreign languages as well).

I don't want to learn another language though. Hard juggling the 4 I understand as of now...

I can speak a small amount of Russian, due to my mom and sister speaking it.

Russian's technically my first language, but I forgot it and am now re-learning.

English. I took French through 1-9 but I never bothered to actually learn it.

I was born English and continue to have it as my primary language, have a French II level focus, and can understand miscellaneous bits from several others.

English is my main language. I know bits and pieces of Spanish, not enough to hold a full conversation though; I'd understand somewhat at best.

I really want to learn the German language, as I am German myself and identify with that the most out of all the stuff I am.

English
Some Mandarin Chinese
Minimal Cantonese and Shanghainese dialect
Remnants of French from high school

Would love to learn Japanese

Tbf tho I think if I spent more time studying a country's culture I'd probably be okay with trying to learn its official language

@Boo re Japanese I know the feel, but you have to practise saying things out aloud even if horribly wrong before it comes naturally (even then, Japanese has quite a few tongue twisters)

Marth is not amused.

I only know English.

Would wana learn some Japanese tbh but don't wana spend the money on something in which I'm uncertain if it'll work or not.
(This mostly come from being forced to learn French throughout Elementary School and almost failing that part. :-\)

English. Other languages, no. Just a few words, that's all.

I also know American Sign Language, but that's not a language you technically speak with.

English is my main language and I'm studying German in college more or less, likely going to minor in it. I can read and comprehend text pretty well but listening and speaking is going to take a lifetime to master.
