English (mother tongue).
German fairly fluently - lived in the region for 6 years
Knowledgeable of the Bavarian and Swiss dialects which are as different from German as Dutch is.
Some French, a little Italian.
Bits and bobs of Czech (and therefore most Slavic languages) and Finnish. Where is the station? A beer, please... etc...
Can read Cyrillic.

Being a Malaysian Chinese like Kae, the main languages we know are pretty much the same.

- Mandarin + other Chinese dialects (Hokkien - mother tongue, Cantonese, a little Teochew)
- English
- Malay

Cheers, ;)

Although German was my first language, I havent spoken much of German since I was five and started school in South America. It is very rusty now, but I can defend myself. I speak fluent English and Spanish, I also do some Italian and Portuguese. I wish I knew Chinese, my grandfather was Chinese but I never met him :(
