Hi there!
My mother tongue is Italian but I speak also English, Spanish and Portuguese. I can read a bit of French and Irish as well but I can't speak them...

This is probably not the right place to post this but, has anyone used Rosetta-Stone? I would like to learn Spanish, and i'm just not sure ther's many other ways. The drawback is it's kind of expensive, so does it work?
I'm a pretty fast learner, I think. *laughs*

I'm from Bulgaria, so I speak Bulgarian (obviously :lol:) , English and I'm good at German. I'm still learning it, but I know quite a lot of stuff already ;)

You people amaze me.
This is what you get for being american though-only knowing English. Well, unless you count pig latin.
I'm in 3rd year Spanish, but am faaaar from being fluent at all. Sometimes I watch the Spanish channels on my tv and am just like, "when did I learn this in school?" And I'll get excited when I can understand a word. "Ah! He said amigo!! I know what that is!!"

My first language is Swedish, I'm fluent in English and drowning in Finnish :lol: aka I understand most of it, but have a hard time finding the right words to answer, usually works OK, and sometimes it goes like this:
Little street shop, selling random garden stuff.
Owner: Can I help you?
Me: No thanks, I'm just reading... (vain lukea...) :oops:
I also understand Norwegian and Danish fairly well since they're so close to Swedish.

I only know english. I 'learnt Italian' for SEVEN YEARS in primary school and I can't remember how to say what my name is. We spent the whole time learning about random stuff. We learnt about horse-racing! And coffee! And the courses of a meal! But never Italian. :lol:

I learnt more German in my first two terms of it then in the whole time I 'learnt Italian'. Hallo, meine Katze ist doof. See? SEE?

Sorry, I just had to let that out. Signora better not like twilight and read this. :oops:

I probably posted a message in this thread already, but who cares?

English and Tagalog's my main expertise, but I can barely speak Tagalog anymore. I can understand it but I haven't been exposed much to the language that I've already forgotten some words.

Bilingual in French and English. Conversational Spanish (studying abroad in Spain right now) and been taking it for 6 years and a half now. I hope to be truly fluent one day!
