At home I speak a bastardized mix of Russian, Spanish, German, Hawaiian and English, its an ongoing joke for the last three years that allows for some basic grasp of a lot of common phrases.  Usually I just speak English or Spanish though.

Really? Hawaiian? I used to live there. What sort of words are you partial to?

I speak a fair bit of Italian- enough to get by in a conversation and ask for things and etc~ I've heard it's a lot like spanish.
I'm also pretty fluent in Japanese, but I'm still learning that. <:

All I can speak is English. I used to know a little bit of Spanish (enough to hold a basic conversation) because I had Spanish classes in 1st-6th grade, but I've forgotten most of it by now. I would love to learn Japanese, but there's no where around here where I can learn it. :( Mango you're so lucky.

I can read an write Korean pretty well.  I never really got the whole "actually learning words" thing, so I'm pretty much stuck at reading and writing. 

Eh, a bit Hawaiian too if that counts, since I live here and all. 

I remember making a language thread like this...  Eh, whatever, that one died a long time ago.  No blame on the OP.

Zenith probably is more boss than me, but generally round the house words like pau or familial references like tutu.

I know a bunch of basic phrases in japenese, my school offered japenese so I took a semester of it.
I use to run around telling random people "That bag is not mine." in japenese XD

???????????????????????????????????????,??????????:-P

(I took 2 years of Japanese. However, my vocabulary is very small. I sometimes use a Japanese dictionary.)

And because of that class, when I'm writing fast all of my periods come out as small circles...

English I can write, read and listen alright, I need more practice in speaking it though. Finnish is my main language, and hebrew I can speak, but I can hardly read and write it.

The scandinavian languages are kinda like Estonian no? Cuz Estonian is a mystery to me *_*
No, the scandinavian languages are germanic languages, same as English. Finnish and Estoanian are finno-ugric languages, which are told be hard to learn as a new language. Finnish and estonian people could have converstions with each other on their own languages and be able to understand most of it.

Spanish is my second language, which is ironic considering I'm Hispanic but all these years of trying to speak to my mom in English does that :< Still, I know enough to count it
I don't really count this one but I know a bit of French from wayyy back in middle school, but it gets to a point where I can understand it but not speak it that well

So many languages yayyy~! HOORAY FOR DIVERSITYYY
So many of those here listed I'd love to learn (If I ever had a life again fuhhhh) but especially the Slavic languages so I could actually understand what my old relatives say :/ I know about the bare basics of Czech and Polish but never enough to understand them which annoys me. Plus, half of them speak Rusyn anyway, which is a weird dialect that makes no sense whatsoever.
I speak some Spanish!
Been taking classes since 1st grade. O: It's a lovely language!

And I know how to insult people in German. But that's it.

Also, I am exactly the opposite of Mersey's dad - I want all obscure non-English languages to rise up and be spoken! Revive the dying words! YEEEAH

I AGREE TAILY~! ALL LANGUAGES UNITE! btw language maps are cooollll
English I can write, read and listen alright, I need more practice in speaking it though. Finnish is my main language, and hebrew I can speak, but I can hardly read and write it.

Ahh, I see~ I should've known since Hungarian is in that language family too. That's really interesting how close Estonian and Finnish are together!

Yeah so I'm in Japanese 1, and I can speak a little Japanese. I'm hoping to skip into Japanese 3 next year though. I need to jump on my rosetta stone again.

I speak Irish too. I should be able to speak French, because I learn it in school, but I can't.
I'd love to have Japanese taught in schools........at least down here anyway.

Je ne parle pas francais, souvent. (I do not speak french often)

Of course, I do have a fluency in a number of languages when it comes to cursing someone out. ;)
