    In one sentence, you need to combine german, irish, and some african accent. Then you will be win.

    I may have accomplished German and Irish in one already, albeit probably badly.

    Doubt I've even tried African.

    I'm fluent in English and passable in German if people speak slowly.

    Re: How Many Languages Do You Speak?

    I can speak English and have studied both Spanish and Japanese. I can speak conversational Spanish and some Japanese. Not really completely fluent in either of them. When I get bored I study foreign languages and learn how to read other writing systems. So far I can read Latin characters (English, Spanish, French, etc...), Russian, Hiragana and Katakana (both Japanese), and I'm currently learning South Korean and Hebrew. I can read them, but don't ask me to tell you what they mean lol.

    You should learn Arabic. Beautiful. I think there are 24 characters, but they change shape if they start the word, in the middle of the word or end the word. Right to left. All writing is script, including the Koran.

    I also speak some Spanish, not fluently but certainly enough to make myself understood.

    Oddly enough, I can proofread the hell out of:

    English
    Spanish
    Japanese
    Chinese
    Korean
    Tagalog
    Vietnamese
    Karen
    Haitian Creole
    Russian
    Polish
    Italian
    German
    French

    And then oddly enough you will hate your life for taking it because the classes are so damn difficult.

    I've also got a primitive grasp of Loglan, though my efforts to improve are of limited success.
