Wow, in my school I'm one of the best at languages.
You guys are amazing.
I'm fluent in english and spanish since I was born in the USA and my parents are from Mexico and don't speak english often. I use English more, but the language I speak at home is Spanish so I am always confused as to which is my first/mother language.
I took three years of french in school, so I can hold my own in a conversation. I plan on taking it again in college. I want to learn italian. I might also take that in college. We'll see.

Ah, well I speak English as my first language.
However I grew up with spanish in my family, at least my moms side.
After I grew up, I mostly forgot all of it..
But now I am a sophomore in high school, and I am taking Spanish 1! (:
Its fun, but also reallllly embarrassing to say things in spanish. At least for me.
And then we continued blissfully into this small but perfect piece of our forever.

It's ridiculous. My mother speaks 6 languages. My dad speaks 2. Yet, I speak one. Can anyone guess which one that is?!?!

I'm taking Spanish as my foreign language[plus the previous years of high school spanish] in college. So....maybe after 6 semesters of it, I'll people able to speak it somewhat. Dare to dream...

My mom can speak a lot too. Its kinda creepy, because we travel to this one place, and all of a sudden, she's speaking the native language! I'm like where'd you learn that? All she says is that she picked it up. Weird. :D

I speak 3 languages. They are english (American), spanish (Mexico), and farsi (Iran).
