I pretend* to speak German. And I speak English.

*by pretend I mean I'm studying it but I still majorly suck at it.

My first language is French. I can also speak English as you can see and un poquito Espaņol. I plan on studying that language when I have the time/at university as an option class or whatever how it is called.

01-28-2007, 03:42 PM
English, and i speak fluent spanish.

like Tizz; Dutch, obviously. & I think it's pretty needless to say I can speak English fairly well.

my German is horrible, especially grammar-wise, but I manage to make myself understood. in Switzerland I must conclude every time, that I'm not as bad at it, as I always seem to think I am. I just shouldn't be as shy as I am in foreign languages.

then I speak a few words of French, but honestly, I forgot most of what I learned.

& then there's Bella-talk. according to my friends in university, it's a whole different language of various words, English & Dutch, all mixed together to make a funny language that is mine. they mostly giggle through every single one of my presentations. :/ it's just that, if I can't think of a word, I make one up that describes it, or is close enough. or I use a different, less formal word, that normally wouldn't fit in the context, or situation.

There can only be one!

But seriously, welcome to the boards.

There's also a Mr. Orange that posts sometimes, isn't there?Yes. There was also a jillcitrus, but not for very long, apparently.

Also, I speak some Spanish. Though I pretty much forgot all of it after I passed all of the classes.

English (obviously), French and Russian. I also know the odd word in other languages, but nothing great (eg. Das ist gut amongst other useless phrases).

Don't be a pussy. I made Tijs change his birthday because we shared one. Stand up for yourself!

Serbian and English fluently, Dutch with minor problems, Russian and French with a little more problems, but I understand 95% of what is said/written.

Currently planning to polish up the french and then pick up either German or Spanish. More likely German, just because it sounds so evil. And because I can have the best teacher for free ;p

Currently planning to polish up the french

I so read that as "Polish" & was utterly confused for at least three seconds. *cracks up*

01-28-2007, 04:45 PM
The funny thing is, I thought the same thing while I was typing and I went "lololol I confused myself, I wonder if anyone else will get confused too!"

And then you did. I'm glad I'm not alone.

& you were surprised I was the one who did? *more laughter*

01-28-2007, 04:48 PM
I never said I was surprised, only glad :p

01-28-2007, 04:50 PM
Yeah the Polish thing confused me too. I was about to make a very lame joke but stopped myself.

01-28-2007, 04:51 PM
French. And by French, I mean I'm in French class but can't actually say anything other than a few dirty phrases I learned out of boredom.

01-28-2007, 04:55 PM
I was thinking something along the lines of; "Polified French".

01-28-2007, 05:01 PM
Well that's been fixed now.

01-28-2007, 05:08 PM
Done and done. :)

01-28-2007, 05:28 PM
Did I miss the fun?

Anyways - French and English. It's hard to describe my French. I can understand everything unless it's in a thick French-Canadian accent said quickly, but I can understand every one of France's various odd accents (not counting made up words).

I took Spanish for 4 years and was rather good at it, but I stopped this year and haven't used it, meaning that it's definitely faded a lot. I plan on taking it again next year though, which should help.

I speak German, Persian and English fluenty. Persian and English are equal, and German is perfect, which isnt a surprise.

English, and I used to take Irish language at school, I forget it all after getting an A in my last Irish test and dropping the subject at the end of the year (4 years ago) :(.

I probably should have kept it on as right now I'm actually considering starting it again, I'd love to speak it fluently.

01-29-2007, 07:09 AM
I speak english and french, a bit of spanish and I have learnt roumanian for two years but I wouldnt say I could speak it...

01-29-2007, 05:37 PM
I speak only English and Assyrian fluently. I can say a few Spanish sentences incorrectly, that can barely carry out a conversation.
