English is my mother tongue.

I have spoken Italian and Deutche while living abroad although the skills are quickly escaping me. I know lots of broken Spanish now.

I'm fluent in ASL - teach classes, interpret, it was my first language.
English
Spanish - I studied for 7 years, so I can communicate, but I'm getting rusty! I prefer to write/read than speak.

My first language is English and my second language is French. French/English bilingualism is pretty standard where I live, I've only met 3 people so far who only knew one language here (with the exception of children).

My answer is "not enough".

English: Native
Spanish: High School Level, if that. Took for it for years, can still only ask "Where is the tobacco store?" and I don't even smoke, so fat lotta good that'll do me.

I always wanted to learn French, German, and Japanese, though. Maybe not all at once, but still fun to pick up certain words and phrases.

Hehe well all I remember from my Khmer (Cambodian), besides general direction and polite conversation, is "More rice, please."

And equally important for all Asian cultures: "Please, no, I'm full."

Slovenian and Serbo-Croatian are both my mother/native languages, I also speak fluent English, German and Italian.. I would love to know Spanish or Portuguese. Or maybe Dutch, Swedish.. I like languages, I'm a quick learner but I'm lazy. If I am forced to use the language I get the hang of it pretty fast. Studying from books.. Not so much

I took one year of Mandarin in middle school and my four year old daughter has already learned as much as I did by watching Ni-Hao, Kai-Lan

That's why I took it in college.I thought if I liked enough and did well,I wanted to be an interpreter.It wasn't easy,and rather then continue on,I gave up.I really wish I hadn't given up.
