Multilingual?
« on: November 26, 2018, 06:32:25 PM »
I really enjoy studying languages. I speak quite a few myself.
Languages and I have a relationship similar to that of a single mother and sudoku's on a hot summer day:
Not something actively chosen, but it's nice to pass the time with.

So what about you all? Are you bilingual, or maybe trilingual? quadlingual? pentalingual? Hexaling... you get the point.
Hoot hoot.

I'm partially trilingual.

Swedish is my mother tongue, and I'm decent enough with English.
I also understand Finnish almost perfectly, both written and spoken, but I've yet to dare to start trying to speak it.

Born Dutch, can fluently speak several accents and dialects in English, speak a bit of German, littler bit of Swedish, a tiny bit of French, and even tinier bit of Polish.

I'm contemplating about picking German and Swedish up for real, but I'm not really sure if I'll meet enough people in those languages to make it worthwhile.

My main language is English, but I'm fluent in Spanish which I learnt in school and picked up on through friends and family who primarily speak Spanish. My partner speaks Spanish and constantly forgets I can too when they pass me their phone and suddenly apologise and try to change the settings because it's in Spanish ... This has been going on for two years  :P ;)

My main language is Dutch, as I hail from the Netherlands. My English is great as well and my German...
is back to being just good enough to make myself understandable.

And I know a few words of French and Polish, but I can't do much with those languages so I never count those.

My main language is English, and I understand some rudimentary Japanese. I can imitate several American accents, especially Cajun.

Partly bilingual, I suck at English even though that is my native language, but je parle très bien français!

I'm Norwegian, so by default I "have to be" bilingual, since obviously English is a mandatory B-language.
My heritage is 50% in the northern part of my county, and the other 50% in the southern part. This combined with Norway having two official writing languages, means I speak and write more or less fluently in the dialect "New Norwegian".
Furthermore, due to television and movies since I was a child, I have a good grasp of Swedish, to the degree that I can communicate on an alright level, but clearly sounding like a foreigner. Since the third Scandinavian language, Danish, is similar to Norwegian just like Swedish is, I can also understand this language, as in listen to and read, but I cannot speak or write it.
I have studied Spanish, but that is on such a low level on competence, and I haven't practiced it since 2012, so it hardly counts.

So that's basically the summary of how multilingual I am. I've left out several languages due to reasons like "I know a few words or phrases", "I have memorized two verses in a song but don't understand the lyrics" etc.
