    I am a native German speaker, however I am fluent in English as it is now my first language since I moved to the UK. I speak a little Spanish and I took 4 years of French in school but I dont remember much.

    chinese is the mother tongue i suppose since i was brought up in chinese speaking family,
    indonesian will be my second language
    another local dialect
    english would be the third by order, but english is a much more effective and efficient to put across my thoughts and i love it
    (i'm kind of waiting till someone post: C++, html or Java :laugh: )

    my mother tongue would be Dutch and a dialect from where I grew up (which is basically.. well a mix between Dutch and German. Many people who don't know German think I'm speaking German whenever I'm speaking in the dialect).
    I speak the dialect with family and some friends who grew up in the same area as me.
    After that there's English. And I often catch myself thinking in English, even when speaking Dutch, which results in me throwing in English words in a Dutch conversation cos I can't think of the Dutch word :unsure: And sometimes I put Dutch sentences in an English structure :huh:

    Other than that I can speak a fair bit of German.

    And the languages I had at school (6 years of French, 4 years of Latin, 3 years of Spanish and 2 years of ancient Greek), I can only speak a tiny bit. French and Spanish more so than Greek and Latin , hehe.

    English is first language and Welsh is second, although I'm not all that fluent in Welsh.

    English is my third language. :D

    Aside from that, I can speak Slovenian, Serbo-Croatian, German, French, and Japanese. I've also studied Latin for quite a while, and know enough Spanish to be able to get around in a Spanish speaking country.
    Bits and pieces of Russian are also intelligible to me. ^^

    My native language is Norwegian, and I'm fluent in English. Apart from that, I know a little bit of Spanish, and I'm learning French in school. Oh, and I can understand Swedish (and kinda speak it, but not well), but that's not really a big accomplishment.
