    Which languages do you speak? And which is you mother tongue?

    I think the title is quite self-explanatory here .

    My mother tongue is dutch. Furthermore I speak english and german. I used to know french in school and a tiny bit of russian. But I kind of forgot most of those .

    Basically, I was wondering how anglo-saxon these forums actually are. And I was wondering something else: when you use a foreign language for an extended period of time, does it start feeling alien to you? English does to me know, since I have been active on these forums I come to realise how not used I am to using it to think about my feelings about things. And how hard it is to deal with subtleties that may totally screw up what you actually wanted to convey .

    Something else I wonder about is what it must be like to have english as one's mother tongue and having most other people in the world speak it as a foreign language with funny accents and grammar mistakes. Not too many foreigners learn dutch, so...

    I think that a large majority of the posters speak English as their native tongue, but I know of a few who don't. I believe Arioche is one of those, and I know WickedQueen is as well.

    I personally speak English as my first language, but I comprehend Spanish and am learning French. :)

    languages

    English is my native tongue although I am often misunderstood as I apparently speak a strange ENTP dialect.

    I also speak Latin; Spanish; French; Russian; Japanese; Mandarin and a few more with varying degrees of proficiency.

    Mainly because I like to understand people.

    Hm, I learned latin and classical greek in school as well. I am trying to learn classical hebrew. But I don't speak those .

    Are there more people who have learned latin/greek? I find latin extremely useful when it comes to learning other languages .

    My native language should be Spanish, but now it's English.

    Other languages I speak/am learning:
    -Spanish
    -Chinese
    -I will learn Japanese sometime in the future.
    -French, but only very basic phrases.

    English primarily...I make fun of how bad my Spanish is sometimes just for fun, I actually understand it quite well xD

    Awesome...I actually wanted to take Latin class in school
    I didn't because my parents can speak Spanish and I wanted to learn it and because I could get a Spanish credit in middle school to get my high school foreign language credits done early
    I think it would have been much cooler to take Latin though!
