    What Languages do you know?


    Welcome, welcome~ I think it's safe to say that many of our members are bilingual and even multilingual on different levels. To share and discover common languages and native tongues, this thread was created. This information could be very useful to MH, so don't hesitate to let everyone know what languages you are fluent in. Of course, don't be afraid to mention any other tongues that you know even some of.

    As someone that only speaks English, I have a deep respect for those that are bilingual or more. Browse through the list to see who else might know your languages. Don't be afraid to discuss any stories about how you learned to speak/understand a language and discuss. As you can see, the list is very extensive already. Have at it, guys.


    Special Note: Our translators can be found here. - GK

    Re: What Languages do you know?

    I'm French, I understand english (that's why I'm here).
    I remember a little Italian and Spanish from when I was in highschool, and a little Japanese from my college years ( I read kanas, understand a simple talk, but can't really read a newspaper...or anything else :|).They tried to make me learn corean, vietnamese an chinese, but i don't remind anything, was too busy not remembering my kanjis...-_-

    Re: What Languages do you know?

    OK, this is about me so far:

    1) Latvian - native
    2) English - advanced
    3) Russian - great understanding, but bad writing
    4) French - what do you expect after learning it for 13 years
    5) German - good understanding, but bad writing
    6) Japanese - basic knowledge and going up
    7) Spanish - ability to understand because of French

    Re: What Languages do you know?

    I'm fluent in Filipino (native language) and English (the other official language in our country). I took up French some time ago but stopped around second grade-level (what was being taught to second graders). I seriously have to review it if I want to pursue it again, perhaps even start from scratch. I might be able to understand a little bit of Spanish, thanks to Filipino borrowing a lot from it. Of course there's the occasional Japanese that was picked up from watching anime xD

    Re: What Languages do you know?

    Norwegian and English top notch.
    (Norwegian includes an understanding of both Danish and Swedish)

    Also took German for some years, don't remember a lot of grammar rules and such, but I can read it surprisingly well.
