    What languages can you speak (or aspire to speak)?

    This thread is inspired by a discussion we had recently over on SF.

    Do you speak a language other than English?

    I can speak a little bit of French (which is more than enough to survive on when in France) and I'm currently learning ancient Greek and Latin... but they don't really count .

    If you want, give us a little taster of that language.

    I only speak English and don't need to learn another language, don't go anywhere to use another one.

    I speak Spanish a little, although you wouldn't believe it hearing me.

    Finnish and Swedish; Finland is a bilingual country and I come from a bilingual family. English was my working language throughout my working years, German because of it's where I live with my German wife. These four enough to read a book or do a crossword.

    Dutch, Italian and Spanish enough to survive, a bit Norwegian because it's so close to Swedish.

    I would like to learn French. For some reason, even though languages have always been easy to me, French has been difficult. At the moment I can only say in French, that I do not speak it

    Languages have always been my hobby, I like to be able to communicate in different languages.
