Re: Which languages do you speak?

I have been teaching myself Japanese for almost two years now and getting better and better. A bit better at reading than listening. Not fluent yet but if still counts that would bring the language count up to three

Re: Which languages do you speak?

My wife and I met in Guatemala in Spanish language school in 2011. She is from England and I am from the States so for visa reasons we had to find a country that we could be together more than 3 months at a time before we were married. We lived and worked in Peru until 2013. We came to the states that summer and were finally married at the Burning Man festival.

I try to keep up on my Spanish but it does fade away rather quickly when not used for long periods of time.

Brazilian Portuguese (main) and English, I'm only good to read and write in English, what is enough for me.

Re: Which languages do you speak?

I speak English, but do know a few Spanish
and German words.

I also somewhat understand a strange
English-like language spoken by ⧊, although
I am somehow unable to speak it. Was that
too much information?

I feel like I'm missing out on a joke.

Care to clarify?

Re: Which languages do you speak?

I can talk binary, hex and octal, does that count? What I really want to know is where now, is the way by which the light distributes itself?

Re: Which languages do you speak?

English and Spanish which I'm slowly forgetting, but I'm learning American Sign Language now. Very interesting language, but pretty tough as the course is pree jam packed into a short period.

Re: Which languages do you speak?

I speak German, English, and Slovene, but I have a rudimentary understanding of Russian and French, and I can carry on a very basic conversation in a few other European languages.
