Spanish is my primary language, however I speak and write English much better since that's what I grew up using more often. From just watching anime I know quite a few Japanese words and have a sense of how the grammatical structure sort of works, but don't care enough to learn any characters. I can only really understand Romanji.

I really love languages! It's fascinating how people from different country can use english to interact so I want to join your international choir!!
I can speak italian fluently(native :P ) I really love english and I could say I am fluent in speaking and writing but I have some problems with listening to dialets...
I also learned french and spanish in school but I forgot some grammar rules :unsure:
I'm now learning korean by myself but I am at the level of a kindergardener since I know the alphabet and few basic words and verbs
In the near future I would like to lear chinese which I find really interesting but I'm actually a little scared of the writing part :(
I'm Italian... If I make grammar mistakes let me know! Thank you

My native language is Romanian. I speak English fluently, studied French but I have forgotten most of it since I have not been using it(sadly), a little bit of Italian, just a few words in German and I have been studying Japanese for one year or so...this winter I have taken the N5 JPLT exam. I hope to learn German and remember French since I really like to speak in foreign languages.

I can speak English and Vietnamese. I used to know French when I was learning it back in school, but I've completely forgotten it all since I never really had to use it.

HELL YEEEEEEE LANGUAGES one of my passions and loves~ Linguistics? YEAH MAN

Have been bilingual forever; English and my native language (which none of you've probably ever heard about, because I'm from a very small place in South Asia, so small that most of the time we don't even appear on maps)

Recent years have seen me learn and gain considerable fluency in both written and spoken Arabic. Aim is to graduate from higher-intermediate levels to advanced, obviously.

I have walked baby footsteps in self-taught Japanese, though I keep finding myself falling out of practice again and again. Self-teaching is hard with Japanese -___- Aim is to keep going slowly but still learn.

There're around 110 more languages I still want to learn (because my dream is to be the Supreme Polyglot of the Universe)(HA HA, what a goal for a lazy butt like me) but obviously my brain cannot do THAT much, so... I can probably recognise a hecka lot more languages on sight, but these are the only ones I can use (however remotely). (4 langs are ok, i guess?? B) )

Fluent in THREE languages. It's such a weird thing though because sometimes the languages get mixed up in my head and I would translate in the wrong language LOL

I can only read and write in English. Like nearly everyone else who are anime/manga fans, I wish I could read and speak Japanese. Korean would be good too, seeing as how Korean webtoons have become quite popular. Black Haze is amazing and so is the Korean Manhua Id (which might be resuming).

I'm fluent in English and Spanish. Although Spanish is my native language, I learned to speak like an American.

Native speaker of both English and French, since both are required where I live. I'm learning Japanese right now.
There's something incredibly eerie about being literally the only person online on a forum. Even worse when you're trying to find reasons to *post* on said forum, because you feel like you're going to somehow get in trouble for spamming despite the fact that you're always posting on topic, just alone.
