Am not talking about the coding languages like C++, PHP, etc.! Am talking about spoken, out loud....

I speak Arabic, English, French

Arabic is my native language. I took English & French in high school, I understand a lot of words in FR. but I often face difficulties replying for composing a sentence. and I've learned a little bit of Spanish (From Learn Spanish online), Spanish at this point is only sufficient enough to order a beer and that's about it.

What about you!? Cuáles lenguas hablas?
When you spend a lot of time in a country other than yours, did you experienced a language barrier?

    Does American Sign Language (ASL) count? If so, two and half! Okay, just two... The French I took in high school is lost on me today.

      hahaha, i understand Australian, but i cannot actually speak it.

      well to be honest, yesterday some euro dude asked me if i'm Australian because
      he thinks i'm talking like them, which is true to an extend. But what does he really know.

      english is my fav.
      german is ok, but perfect.
      indonesian: yeah, sometimes if i'm in the mood

    I love English because literally it changed my life with IM

    French content is just so poor when it comes to IM (or as I think)..

    I speak lots of languages. Although I have no idea what I am saying when I speak them.

    Does using an accent count as speaking a language

    Chinese is my mother tongue. I learned English in college and also know a little French. I think French is easier than Italian and Spanish for it has less uvular trills and shares many same words with English.
