I am german so I speak german fluently
had 9 years english in school and still using it everyday so quite good in it (at least I hope that^^)
had 7 years latin and 1,5 years spanish so I can understand the basics of spanish and italian but only when people are talking slowly
And I started learning japanese but since I am learning it by myself and not attending any course for it it will take some time for me to be good at it though I am always surprised at how much I can actually understand without subs :mrgreen:

I have a profound interest in languages, so I'm trying to pick up quite a few.

I natively speak Polish and English.
I can rather fluently speak Japanese.
I'm learning German and Cantonese at a rather slow pace right now.
If I ever get those 2 down and am still interested in learning languages I will pick up Korean (I know Hangul by heart, but don't know any actual Korean words other than like Annyeonghaseyo)

native english speaker, but i can understand/speak a decent amount on spanish (studied a couple years in high school, and live in LA), though it may take me a second to process what i heard! lol. been studying japanese on my own and can usually watch most doramas without subs, but i miss out a bit on the details, unless i'm attached to my dictionary, so i usually use the subs. i know the katakana and hiragana and a couple hundred kanji, so i can read a bit, but not too much, and not too fast...

i am from the U.S. and speak only English. I am currently trying to learn Korean (at a very slow pace) and would love to learn Japanese as well but I don't have much confidence. I have an auditory processing disorder which can make it difficult to discriminate similar sounds so learning foreign languages is a bit tricky for me. I even have trouble understanding someone speaking English sometimes. I will give it my best though. Fighting!

I´m still learning japanese, but I´m surprised how with the time it´s getting easier and easier. For average movies and dramas I don´t really need subs, but always for complicated movies. The problem is, if there are subtitles it´s too easy to rely on them. *lol*

I'm Canadian. I speak English and Portuguese because my parents are from Portugal.
Always had a fascination with Asian culture since I was a kid. Was too lazy to learn the language back then but now I want to learn Mandarin and Japanese.

I can understand Cantonese [so HK Dramas are easier to digest, despite me not liking them as much as Korean or Japanese!]

I'm a very basic at Japanese, but I'm learning. Got a load of Rocket Japanese and Pimsleurs audio mp3s to help me out. Any tips anyone?

Sometimes, I could easily understand japanese because I used to watch anime.
I could understand few Korean words although I couldn't speak myself.

But I still depend on the subtitle anyway. :))

My native language is English.
Other languages? I know a little bit of Polish, as I was employed teaching Polish children English. I was literally thrown in at the deep end, no experience, but we got to understand each other through the universal language of football. No kidding. I'm a football fan and so were they.
I taught them some English, and they taught me some Polish.

I know Mandarin, but I can't read well enough to catch the subtitles as they speed past!

Well, there's English, as you can tell by my typing. Raised in the States.
My mother is Peruvian, so I grew up speaking Spanish.
I learned Portuguese in my early 20s while living abroad in Brazil for a while.

I can't speak Italian or French, but I can pick up on a lot of if not most of what the words meanm if I read something thanks to my knowledge of Portuguese and Spanish.
