I speak Italian and French. I've started to learn German a couple times but I keep giving it up -- I think I just don't want to learn it bad enough In theory I'd like to learn other languages, but in reality I'll probably just keep working on the ones I already have and try to get as proficient as I can in them.
I think my english is pretty good - well, you can judge for yourselves. (Not really sure whether I want to know what people think) When speaking, I think it's close to fluent, and my vocabulary is pretty good.
I once spoke french well enough to be admitted to a french university, and german well enough to be taken for being from Rheinland-Pfalz when I was in Kiel. (Whatever that means; I never learned german well enough to be able to separate between all the different accents, although I could hear the difference between austrian-german and german-german.) Languages come easy to me, but I don't practice forreign languages at all for the time being, apart from english. My first language is norwegian, btw
i looove languages. so many and so little time. i'm nearly fluent in french and decent at spanish, and currently am especially intrigued by middle eastern languages with other alphabets - arabic, hebrew. i've taught myself some of them, a little japanese. i also want to learn the languages of my family roots.

Me too, i love languages. Ironic since I am such an introvert. But then, learning another person's language and being able to say a few words in that person's language is a universal ice-breaker is it not?
