yeah but people often make mistakes with that :D you see often see shields like Anna's Bar (stupid example i know...) even though in german it should be Annas Bar.

i know a book (Resturlaub for the germans here) where the maincharacter is always moaning about the wrong apostrophes in the name of the beer the factory he's working in is producing :lol: Sepelpeter's i don't know...it's really funny^^

I'm English so I speak English as a primary language.
I'm also fluent in American Sign language and I'm in the process of learning English and Japanese Sign Language.

I'm also learning Persian from one of my co-workers and Arabic.


Edit: I also can pick up Italian and Latin pretty well. I'm a classically trained singer and those two languages are the easiest to sing in. xD

I'm American, and I speak English (obviously) and fluent Hebrew. I'm in my first year of Spanish, though, does that count? ;)

My primary language is English. However being from Canada most of us have to take French in elementary and middle school. So, although I'm not fluent in French, I can understand and speak a bit. Same goes for Portuguese - although I don't speak any ( my father was born/raised in Portugal), I understand it more or less.

I have a question for those people that do have speak more then one language. What language do you dream in? I mean, for example if you are Italian and now live in North America and speak more English than your native tongue... Would you still dream in Italian, English, or both?

I normally dream in American Sign Language with subtitles.
I've also dreamed in Italian.
Well, made-up Italian since my Italian is very limited.
