How many languages can you speak?
« on: December 29, 2018, 03:01:56 am »
I am fluent in English, I speak some French (enough to have a short conversation) and I am taking a Spanish class at school this spring.

I can only speak english fluently. I know some spanish, but would like to learn more so i can speak it fluently. I think it is great when you can communicate in more than one language. I also wantto learn sign language.

I can only speak English.  I never took a foreign language in school.  French was offered and I didn't think I would use that.  I wish Spanish had been offered.

I can only speak English.  I took French in college & can't speak it.  I understand a lot of Spanish, can speak somewhat... but have a pathetic accent.

I speak English only, and  my hubby is a white man but  does  speak Mexican.  We have  very  few  people from Spain here. They all come from the Mexican border mainly. But he grew up learning it. We didn't . I figure this is America and if they want to live  here then they should  learn to speak it.  Why should they be treated better then any other  country.  When  the immigrants come over to live and get their citizenship the learn why can't the others. I will not   pander t hem.

I speak English, Choctaw (I am American Indian), Spanish, ASL  and a bit of French and Japanese..because our company deals with Quebec, Canada and Japan.  I am always amazed at the lack of empathy and ignorance some people show with their answers on here.   I wonder if they ever read back to themselves what they have said or check spelling and grammar.

Hello! :D :)

I'm originally from Haiti over there Creole and French are the two main speaking languages. So I speak Creole and a little French. Speaking more than one languages can be very beneficial to you as it can open more doors to different jobs. Plus it is always good to be able to talk to more people. :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:

:menorah:   :santa:   :snowflake: English is my main language that I speak, mainly cause that's what I learned while I was growing up. I can speak some Spanish words, but fluently nope or a sentence.   :menorah: :santa:   :snowflake:

English, French and some Spanish.  I had 2 years of French in high school, and the Spanish I picked up along the way, but I'm not fluent in either.  I do remember the cuss words, though.

I can only speak English. I have tried to learn other languages but have not felt confident enough to speak it.

 Sometimes I have a tough time with English. I took Spanish in  high school and college  but can only speak a few words and phrases. Languages are not easy for me to learn.  :present: :peace: :wave:

I only speak English. I speak a little bit of French and Mandarin. But English is pretty much all I speak.
