    Spanish and German. I'm more fluent in Spanish, but am pretty conversationally fluent in German.

    Native: Finnish

    My English is probably fluent, oh, and it is American English, btw... I think I could speak Swedish fluently pretty fast if I lived there, it seems easy enough. But at the moment I would struggle to form sentences and probably couldn't say half of the things I wanted. With Spanish I might be able to say anything I want but it will be hard and clumsy. Well, then there's Italian, which I think I could understand quite well, and maybe Portuguese too, but I would have to live over there to actually learn to say something.

    Yeah, and last year I learned to read Cyrillic alphabets while traveling. Still, I only know a few words in Russian. Their pronunciation was a headache for me. I tried to order a coffee, it is the same damn word and it was pronounced almost the same, "cofye", but the shopkeeper didn't understand me... And there wasn't really many things in sale, so I must have sucked big time...

    Native: English

    I'd say I've intermediate French and Irish (Gaeilge). I can speak both well enough, but understanding spoken is difficult (though I've shoddy hearing anyway) and I sometimes have difficulty finding the words I want on the spot. My written command of both would be pretty good.

    I know a handful of words in German, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian. Any Italian words I know are solely music-related (except for the phrase "Somo un acino" which wouldn't be of much help were I to visit Italy).

    Native: Swedish (grammar-nazi and generally well-spoken).

    Fluent: English (better than most native speakers in writing, and most people think i'm irish or something when I talk). I do have a bit of a brogue :rolli:
    What's funny is that I can't seem to get rid of it.
    At least I haven't started calling the cops "gardaí"... :rolli:


    Mutually interchangeable scandinavian languages that I can speak and understand well:

    Norwegian (most dialects of it, but not Nynorsk which is only used around Bergen)
    Danish


    Intermediate: German. I can make myself understood, read Wiki articles etc. I'm currently learning German. Studied it in school for three years without interest.
    I hate when people (try to) teach me, I need to teach myself.

    Beginner: Polish, Latin, Spanish, French, Dutch, Japanese, Icelandic, Irish Gaelic and a few others.
    I know some cursewords in Finnish :workout:

    Falcarius is not really fluent in any other language than his native one; British English. He learnt French for six or so years, as a second language, but he can't exactly speak French nor understand other people speaking French. Although, he can read French moderately well.

    He learnt Spanish for a year, but can only understand the words that are similar to French words.

    Falcarius still barely understands American English. He does not get why Americans speak in Pluperfect tense all the time, nor why they don't seem to know what irregular verbs are. He does not understand why a thrift store is not a bank, and why the term 'drug store' is not a euphemism for the local illegal drug dealer, and nor does he know why the term 'baby stroller' does not mean a extremely young vagrant. He certainly does not know why the word 'international' seems to mean almost the opposite in American English compared to Britain English.

    There's a different name for "native Koreans in PRC"... I just don't know what it is in English. Those folks speak quite differently from South Koreans.
