Indonesian: native
Chinese: supposed to be native, I spoke it when I was a child before I even learned Indonesian, but I lost the ability as I grew up. Now I can only understand when it is spoken, but I cannot speak it. I have never been able to read though. I can only read few characters.
English: fluent
Japanese: basic (used to be intermediate, but due to lack of practice... *shrug*)
Italian and French: super basic because I'm still learning
and some local languages native to Indonesia, like Javanese and only in intermediate level.

French : Native :D
English : Fluent (maybe ? it's not like I'm living in Ireland since september plus all the time spent online...)
German : I was really good, yeah, was, haven't spoken in a while, but I can still understand it, speaking would surey be a pain... (allows me to survive in Dutch speaking places)
Spanish and Italian : I can understand it, I have never learned these languages but being from Baguetteland helps a lot (I can understand half of a 4 hour conference in Spanish with just a little headache and a massive want for sangria)
Swedish and Danish : I can say "Cheers", "Sausage" and "Chop the Onions", does that still count ?
Finnish : PERKELE ! (okay I only know one word)
Japanese : never learned it but thanks to anime I have sort of an instinct, like "Hey, I don't think they actually say that [checks it] Yup I was right... For once." let's say some notions


That's pretty sad, I can only speak two languages... the rest is just understanding and guessing...

Does javascript and actionscript count ? (And don't get me started about PHP after two years of studying it, I still don't understand a single thing in PHP)

Spanish: native.

English: advanced. I obtained a B2 in my local School of Languages. Ofc, a B2 it's not an advanced level according to the CEFR, but my school insisted that their B2 level was an intermidiate level between B2 and C1, so the could call it "advanced"... and now I'm preparing the IELTS exam for obtaining a real C1 level. Wish me luck!

French: advanced. The same case like above. But I studied for a year in France thanks to an Erasmus student exchange programme.

German: basic.

Portuguese and Italian: I can read them and undestand them when they're spoken, but I'm very basic once I have to speak in these languages.

Japanese: I can recognize some kanjis and katakana, but only a few words and expressions while watching anime in OV.

Oh, well, I suppose I could add to my list the dialect form my region, the Asturian. It's a Romance language originated during the evolution of the Spanish language. Ofc, there's a debate about if it can be considered a language or a dialect.

Mandarin- I attended elementary school at China. But I think I'm not as good as I used to be at due to lack of practice.
French-I've been studying French for last couple of years. But still I'm not really good at it.

I also know some Shanghainese.(Local language of Shanghai.)
I understand some German words too.

I'm a genius.:3c

Let's see...
01). English: Native
02). Spanish: Advanced
03). Japanese: Intermediate
04). Italian: Basic
05). French: Basic
06). Gaelic: Basic
07). Swahili: Basic
08). Arabic: Basic
09). Chinese: Basic
10). Latin: Basic

You'd be amazed with what you can pick up after spending several years as an ESL tutor being in the company of people from all over the world. And that isn't including programming languages. If you include those too, then HTML, SQL, VBA, Java, and C++ are added to the list.

Oh, interesting :)

Alright, let's see...

1. Dutch - Native
2. Regional Dialect - Native (Quite a bit different than Dutch. It's more of a mixture between German and Dutch)
2. English - Fluent
3. German - Intermediate (I can understand it well, both spoken and written. Not so good at speaking it myself)
4. French - Basic
5. Japanese - Basic
6. Portuguese - Basic

Not counting the languages that I know a few words of (I can say "perkele" and some other swear words in Finnish for example, but imo that doesn't really count as knowing the basics haha)
