    Native:
    Dutch - fluent

    Other:
    English - fluent
    German - Reasonable. Lack of use leaves me with little confidence when speaking. And I often use dutch/english words to fill up the gaps. But on the whole I can understand and get myself understood pretty well.
    French - Little bit, fairly limited to reading only nowadays. Lack of practice has left me incapable of remembering the words needed on the spot. But I still can read french pretty well and understand what is said. I'm pretty certain that if I was to use it regularly again, I could pick it up fairly quickly again. The knowledge of the language is in my brain, it's just buried at the moment.

    Fluent: German C2 (State-certified translator)
    Intermediate: French (but I've forgotten a great deal) A2/B1

    The evaluations are according to the CEF language levels, whereby:

    A1: absolute beginner
    A2: beginner with limited prior knowledge
    B1: lower intermediate
    B2: upper intermediate
    C1: advanced
    C2: near-native proficiency

    Japanese, I'm fluent. Reading/writing needs practice. I use Japanese more than I use English at the moment. I also speak English, NZ English and a special brand of isfp speak.

    Native language = German (Currently fluent at functional level, reading/writing would take work)

    Language used daily = English (American)

    Other spoken languages = Redneck English (PhD Certified Translator) + Spanish (Enough fluency to order a beer and find a bathroom)

    Body language = I know what people are thinking before they open their mouth.

    Native Slovakian - terrible in writing but I speak reasonably well in the tongue.
    There is Italian, I can count to a hundred, use a few choice words to make a sentence or two.
    Australian English is my primary language though, speak and write very well.

    native language- american english

    nearly fluent- spanish (haven't used it that much for a while and can't remember some words used to be fluent)

    very good- portuguese (I can spend time in the country with no other english speakers and do quite fine!)

    some- italian (basic structure of language, enough to be a tourist without a guidebook)

    Native - hungarian.
    On paper, I'm 'C1' in english and german, though I need muuch practice with the latter one.
    I'm somewhere near B2 in french.
    I've learned some latin, but of course it's only for translations.
    And I've learned some hebrew too, still inexperienced. B1 perhaps? Not sure.
