    I can speak, read, and write English and Polish, and I know a few words in Japanese and spanish.

    The Japanese words from watching all those anime and Spanish from ex coworkers haha.

    And the Spanish is mostly curses hahaha.

    I speak Finnish natively. And I'm more or less fluent in English.

    I actively study Japanese everyday and I'm getting somewhere with it.

    I can also speak a tiny bit of Swedish and German.

    After I've tackled Japanese to a good level (JLPT N1, 2200 kanji), I'm going to move on to Korean. And I'd like to get a bit better at German.

    Horster, Dutch, English, German, French, HTML, a little bit of Ruby...

    Horster is my dialect, which some "Hollanders" consider German or so. Well if you did't know the difference, you would say it really IS German. (Me = Limburgian damnit!)

    French, english, japanese, mostly.

    My german is too rusty to say I can speak it anymore. Most likely it'll sound broken.

    And some remnants of russian so that I can say my name or ask for a doctor.

    English--obviously.  I also speak some Spanish, a little French, a little Italian, and some Latin.  Obviously, knowing some Latin helps with the Spanish, French and Italian.  I have picked up a little Irish and Welsh Gaelic, but with most of these, I read and write them much better than I speak them. 

    I'm also fluent in Gibberish and Nonsense.  Learning Gobbledygook.

    Malay (Primary) and English(secondary but very often serves as a main), although my best language is english itself since I've been so heavily influenced (I still make grammar mistakes though but eh). Currently learning Japanese (I still suck but I can read kanas at a sorta below average pace and a handful of kanji letters but my grammar's pretty horrible) and I tried out a very tiny portion of French and it's interesting so far (but I'm still incapable of even making the most simple sentence).

    Sadly, I only speak English, with a smattering of words in French and Japanese.  Slowly expanding my French vocabulary, but I'm not that dedicated to it, honestly.

    On a more serious note, I speak English. I took Spanish in high school, but its atrophied to near uselessness since I haven't touched it in 13 years.

    Norwegian(and by extension that means I understand and can communicate adequately with Danish and Swedish people and read in their languages as well), English and Japanese(普通に話せるし、読み書きも日常生活には困らないレベルぐらいかなぁ。)

    Did French in junior high and high school, but forgotten most of it. I can understand German to an extent, but can't speak or write it.

    So Latin to Italian seems to be exactly what  Ancient Hellenic is to Modern Hellenic.

    Two different languages I suppose. 

    :p
