Not including variations of English ... such as British-English, American-English, Australian-English, and so on

Reasonably good French & German (although I'm becoming rusty from lack of practice)
Currently learning Italian

Strangly enough english, a little Irish, a little French and at certain times a little drunk, a special language only understood by people in the same state

Some weird new fangled English type :)

Dutch, German and Norwegian moderately, French and Spanish basics. Used to speak Pijin as a native tongue till I was 12 so I am sure I'd be able to pick that one up pretty quick again if I was to visit PNG or the Solomons again... I still have it on my CV though; good ice breaker although useless for pretty much any job :)

Finnish(mother language), English(fluent), Swedish(2nd mother language but don't use it that much), German(okay), French(poor) and right at the moment studying Spanish...just love that language!Si!

French - plus extremely rudimentary Italian. If I know the context. And the person speaks really, really slow. Very rudimentary.

English and Dutch are father/mother tongue, although the Dutch is a little rusty.

I can get by in German and French, but certainly not enough for a conversation about anything much more substantial than the location of the toilet.

and ditto to Sam on the Pijin. Can understand it (more or less) and wouldn't have too much trouble picking it up again.

I speak English and Mandarin fluently. I can also speak Hokkien and some Teochew (but I understand better). I know basic Italian and French, and can understand Cantonese (speaking bit is lousy).
