    None of the above. I speak English from birth and Mandarin Chinese from marriage.

    I took two semesters of French in high school and I have 15 hours of German and 10 hours of Korean in college. I remember almost none of any of those languages.

    I speak English natively, learned Spanish through 5 years of studies in high school (and could become fluent pretty quickly if I moved to a spanish-speaking community/country, so I consider myself "semi-fluent"), and am currently learning German and French. After that it's Russian.

    English from birth, Spanish as a requirement for undergrad studies in a Liberal Arts field.

    I’m currently studying to become fluent. It helps to know the language of your religion. Judaism by the way.
