English and a little French. I use to be pretty fluent in it but I took it for granted because I didn't want to speak the language when I learned it. Now as an adult, I wish I had not taken it for granted!! Everyday we had to say a sentence and I always said the same thing, "Je detest La Francais!"

English of course, ein bisschen Deutsch, et un peu français. (a little German and a little French). And by a little I mean very little. I understand French more than I can speak it and I can speak it better then German. But I have this fascination with the German language. DH spent a semester there and I'm constantly having him teach me phrases.

I took four years of high school French, and got an A in all four classes...but I speak very little! I can understand and read it pretty well, but not speak. That's what happens when your teacher is going through a divorce from another teacher at the same school and doesn't mind talking about it at all! We got her off-track so much and talked her into lots of 'bagel runs' to the Hy-Vee across the street...LOL. Hindsight is 20/20 :)

Pretty much English only. I took spanish in high school so I can get by, but I really wish I would have stuck with it and continued.

I can get down a little with French & Spanish. I know a smidgen of German. I'm learning Italian & I speak a little Masri which is Egyptian/Arabic. I can say a few novel things in Japanese as my Maid of Honor learned it school. I can speak it in conversation but I can't read or write it );

My goal is to have ten languages under my belt that I can have basic conversation in!

I know only a few words in German that my aunt taught me years ago, and I took 2 years of French in high school (I have both French & German in me).  To this day, I still call my mom "mon amie"... I hardly ever call her "mom".
