Fluent: English, Spanish, Hindi (spoken)
Slovak and Czech native level - My family is from Slovakia, but my parents moved to Czech Rep. before I was born.
Fluent English - Learning it in school, also taking private lessons. Using the internet surely helped as well.
Basic German (I would say B1 level) - School and private lessons
I also picked up some basic Russian thanks to cs. I taught myself how to read cyrillic so I can figure out if some sneaky russians are flaming me in the chat and call them out.
I always love learning new phrases and words from teammates in csgo, people are always happy when you say some stupid shit in their language😎.
portuguese, english, Spanish, dutch, italian, french, a litle bit of romanian and some phrases in polish.

Spanish and french can have many similarities with my native tongue (Latin derived languages) and as such I didn't have to really study them to reach my current level,
I taught myself english through the internet, programming languages, playing games, reading stuff and shit, I just incorporated it into my daily life and naturally developed my skills.
I'm learning Chinese through the internet as well, I wanted to learn a difficult language as a personal challenge.
-> German (motherlanguage, speaking a german dialect most of the time tho)
-> English (school, but most of it thru video game tutorials & forums online)
-> Tourist italian (had it in school but our teacher was horrible and didn't teach us anything so I suck at it lmao)
I am able to understand some Dutch, Luxembourgish & a little bit of the Scandinavian languages here and there since they are all part of the germanic language family, but only bits and pieces.
I want to learn a 3rd language tho, was thinking about spanish but idk if I have the motivation and if it even makes sense. Like, u need to use the language almost daily to get a feel for it & there is not really a point to go out of my way to find spanish tutorials, forums or anything if I can just search up german or english ones.
why does everyone here speak like 5 languages lol i feel ashamed 😓

Wanna learn Cantonese
portuguese: probably b2
PT, ENG, ESP, FRA and some bits of Norwegian/Swedish
This is something I hate about being english - there is no real need or way to learn another language. And I'm sure learning english if you are non-native isn't easy but it must help a lot having a lot of english all over the internet. I want to learn another language but have no clue where to start.
Some Spanish from high school + university
I'm trying to learn Dutch cause of the similarity to English.
Spanish (almost fluent, can write very well but understanding someone talking is difficult for me)
French intermediate (school)
English fluent (self)
Spanish and German beginner (duolingo and school respectively)

I've been learning portuguese for 90+ days in a row now, to know some stuff to say this summer on vacation and it looks like spanish for many words, which is cool for me.

Russian (average, basics learn in school and later more by myself)
German (know basics, learn by myself when work in Germany)
Also now learning basics of Italian, just because very nice language. :)
Danish - mother tongue
Swedish and norwegian - I guess it kinda falls into the category of danish, since i only understand these two languages because they're similar to my mother tongue. But it's way easier to understand written norwegian and spoken swedish. (i can't speak any of them, only understand 90% of what they say)
English - fluently. Had english classes since i was 10 to age 18. Furthermore, having had a computer since i was like 8 sure helped a lot. Especially since i played runescape and other games in english. Also it's obviously impossible to navigate the internet without being exposed to english constantly, which means it's easy and almost inevitable to become fluent in english.
French - had french courses for 3 years in high school and really liked the subject, so i even studied french a bit more after high school. Don't speak it fluently but my level of understanding is higher than the level i speak at. So if i'm listening to someone, i might be able to understand but not respond coherently. I'm able to hold a normal conversation without issues if it's going at a decent pase and we're not talking about something complicated where my vocabulary can't follow.
German - had german courses for 3 years in what i guess would be called primary school (age ~13-16). I wasn't very good at german at this time, since languages didn't interest me much and my teacher was awful. Although i've become better in the recent years as i have a few german friends that i play with. Same as french, i understand most spoken and written german, but contrary to french, i'm not very good at speaking german.
Danish, norwegian, swe all same shit
Pretty good in Icelandic
I am conversational in german
Finnish and Swedish natively
English through school
took one course of German and well... Russian through CSGO LMAO
Polish - native
English - fluent
German - A2 level I suppose, B1 when it comes to reading comprehension but when I have to talk there's an issue, still learning tho
I can also read cyrillic (I was bored one Summer and learned it in a few days lol, it's pretty easy tbh) and by knowing Polish it's sometimes enough to make something out of Russian/Ukrainian and some other East Slavic languages - but it depends on the vocabulary used.
English, Hindi, French, Bengali.
Portuguese, Spanish and English
2,5 languages fluent Estonian and English, bad german
Basic (bad) German
and i use translator for English.
Spanish, English, and a little bit of Portuguese.
Also, people saying Catalan and Spanish are the same are so damn wrong haha
English, Spanish, and learning Italian
Kabyle, Arabic, French, English and learning Spanish
Arabic/English/French all 3 fluently
Telugu - parents

porch of geese and english
some spanish, but i can't say i know it
Only English but learning French
English, Lithuanian and kinda Russian (still learning in school)

Serbian a bit but I understand most of it (not gonna count Bosnian, Croatian, etc)
un pocito Espanol (trabajaba en agencia immobilaria durante dos anos y aprendia en la oficina)
Polish and English and Slava Ukraine
english japanese french spanish
i'm fluent in two out of 4 of these languages
and i'd say i'm decent in both japanese and spanish
only Spanish, but I can understand a little Italian, Portuguese, without having learned it, if you relate some words you can understand some of those languages, not completely but you can understand some things
I think portugueses, brasilians, italians can understand spanish in the same way
i tried taking spanish class in school, covid dragged classes into online school when i was going through the second course so i now dont know most of what i learned. i cant duolingo for spanish or japanese either, i hate it.my english isnt even that good either for literally speaking it since birth.
I want to learn more Russian

English and……. that’s it
maybe American ?
Filipino and English (way more fluent in Eng)
Only English but I'm learning Korean
English, Hindi, Gujarati — 100% Fluency
Spanish from Middle School that I forgot 95% of.
Also, I can read Hangul cause someone said it was very easy. And I memorised it in 1 day lmao
I dont know how but for me now little bit hard to talk in russian cuz i confuse places with words. I mean i say "this key me give" (in russian) because in Yakutian its correct "iti kuluusu miehe bier"
iti - thus
kuluusu - key
Miehe - me
bier - give
And most importantly, Yakut is my third language. Unlike the indigenous population where I live, I never spoke or heard this language. I'm just studying for the second year because it suddenly became interesting :D
English and Filipino. But I'm way better with English. Can't read a single Filipino paragraph without consulting a dictionary or a translator. God I remember when I read Noli and El Fili. it was a torture going through every single page. Spent more time searching the words than actually understanding them.
Know or speak?
Cause one answer is many and other is 4
