Besides English, I know many of you will have this answer but beyond English, what languages have you learned? Why did you learn them? For me, my first language other than my native English is I was brought up speaking Italian bc my dad's from there

Nice, it's never too late to improve :) No worries, Bavarian language is hard for everyone, besides its native speakers (bavarians and austrians) to understand :D

Learned both Japanese and English growing up but was forced to stop speaking Japanese for many years cause you “need to speak English in America”, so technically English was second language but either or just growing up. Outside that spanish.

Japanese mother, American father. Our mother always told us from birth we would speak fluent Japanese to her, but had to stop for English. Certain parts of Southeast Michigan weren't the safest for Japanese people, and it's too bad as well because nowadays it's a lot more accepted but sorta broken off from the language now. I made an effort to relearn and still speak quite a bit with my mother, and can understand it well, sister can't whatsoever really these days.

Yeah past few years I've gotten back into it and we went back home for the first time since 3/11, and I could mostly understand and converse with extended family pretty well, and they could understand most of what I was saying. Outside of being home I never use it much so hard to maintain the advanced stuff.
