    I am from the Philippines so most of us can speak at least two major languages: Filipino and English. But aside from these two, I can also speak another ethnic language which is Bisaya or Cebuano.

    I'm from Croatia and I can speak these: Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, English and a little bit of German. However Croatian, Serbian and Bosnian are very similar languages and therefore when you speak one of them, you actually speak all three.

    I can only speak English. I do know some very, very basic Latin! I never attempted to learn another foreign language since I am such a visually oriented person. I doubted I could roll my Rs or make any sounds close to languages like Spanish.

    I speak english, spanish and french. Three major languages in the world today. I'm trying to learn slovenian for personal reasons. I think the more languages you know the more of an advantage you'll have in the world both business and personal wise. It's a lot of work, but it can take you a long way.

    When I was in high school I got taught English, French and German next to my mother tongue which is Dutch.
    However, my French and German isn't very good as I never used it outside of school and I didn't practice it after I went to college. So basicly I only speak English and Dutch quite well, and a hint of German and French ;-)

    I can speak Finnish and English easily, but I'm also learning Swedish and German. Maybe I'll learn something like Spanish or French when I'm older :)

    I know English fluently and Spanish very well and a little German. It is awesome to see that some people can speak English and Swedish and all of that. It amazes me how some people can manage to know so much. More props to the ones who can master multiple languages.

    Not nearly as many as I wish. Which means I speak English fluently. I also speak a nattering of German & French, but I'm nowhere close to fluent in either. But if I got dumped in countries that speak either I could get a sandwich, know the time & be able to ask for directions to a bathroom.
