Woah, I had no idea there are so many people who know over 4 languages... And I was proud for my 3 (fluent Greek, more or less fluent English and semi-fluent German despite going to a German-speaking school *shame*)... o///o

@RocketDive: I learned German with the traditional textbook method, and here I am, unable to express my thoughts in an understandable way. English on the other hand I learnt by watching Friends without subs and learning some basic vocabulary (only to a basic level though, after that my parents were insistent on hiring a tutor to get me to a better level. But my tutor didn't really use textbooks either, she mainly chatted with me and gave me simple sentences to learn which contained words that were unfamiliar to me.) So, I'd strongly advise you to stay away from regular textbooks, keep expanding your vocabulary and just do fun stuff in your target language. biggrin

I am fluent in speaking,reading,writing:
English
Hindi
Tamil
Gujarati

So mostly Indian languages. I know a bit of French as well. It's not much to speak of though. I can get by (with many weird stares) if I happen to visit France.

I am fluent in English and Spanish and I can probably understand some spoken Portuguese, Italian and French if spoken slowly as well as being able to read and understand those languages.
I wish I spoke at least one other language.

My native language is Spanish, I'm fluent in English and I'm more or less fluent in French and Portuguese but since I don't use them too much I'm not as fluent as I was when I was studying them.
And now I'm tying to learn Japanese, for now I know the hiragana and the katakana and some basic words.

My native language is Bahasa, but I'm pretty good in English, Chinese and Japanese.

I speak Spanish and English fluently, Spanish being my native language and English being somehow way better than my Spanish.
Also it doesn't count but I'm currently learning Japanese.

How and why are you learning five languages at once? At which level are you at them and do you actively study them?

Native German, pretty much fluent in English, intermediate Japanese.

Once I'm done with Japanese, I probably won't learn another language, though I'm somewhat interested in Korean.
