Are you bilingual, or more?

I am just now starting to learn Spanish. I have learned a little French in high school years ago. I would like to become fluent in Spanish and Arabic at least.

Not at the moment.  I have dabbled with latin a little.  I hope to become fluent in it so I can chant at people when I get mad.

I can only speak English but coming from Detroit area I can understand some ebonics.  I can't speak it fluently but can understand directions and maybe I am going to be carjacked.

Russian, Ukrainian, some Serbian (Thanks DLI!), and some Spanish (I live in CA)....

I'm American.  Of course I'm not bilingual...

If you know three languages, you're trilingual.
If you know two languages, you're bilingual.
If you only know one language, you're American.

Greek and French

Yes. Speak a bit of Japanese, mostly learned in martial arts classes. It's surprising how much of the language you can pick up from these. Also a smattering of Vietnamese that I have learned on my own as well as from military books and movies. Wish I knew more though. A foreign language is learned best as a young child just because it isn't so strange at that point. If interested in your child learning a foreign language......have them taught in it at a very young age. The results might surprise you.

Unfortuantely, I have lapsed horribly in most of the languages I know...


I do speak "variations" of English...

British English
Armed Forces English

Most of the variations concern word usage and shortening of language under duress...

Pity I don't travel much anymore, it would be nice to pick up some of the languages again...
