    I know four. But it's my business to know languages as I am a translator by profession. I'm currently learning a fifth one. I grew up bilingual and have always had a fascination with languages and literature.

    Well obviously, I know English but i also know a bit of Spanish and I used to be a bit familiar with sign language but I doubt I remember most of the stuff I learned.

    Apart from my native language, I can also speak English, Chinese, and a bit of Spanish. I'm now trying to learn French because I'm interested in the culture and I just like the language in general.

    English is my native tongue. I'm also quite fluent in French and I'm trying to learn Mandarin Chinese and German.

    I only know two languages, and I hope to learn a lot more in the future.

    I speak English and use sign language. I took German all through grade school and high school, and even toured Europe with a band. It's sad that I could read and write it , but had a very bad time speaking the language. I don't think I gave myself enough credit. I learned sign language when my best friend's baby was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and told she would never speak. We taught our children sign language together so the kids could "talk".

    I can speak three languages fluently; English, Swahili and Kikuyu. I tried learning French on more than one occasion and failed to master the language. I am very intrigued about languages that I do not understand. I guess it is easier to learn a new language for a child than an adult.

    English is my native language, and I speak Cantonese at home with my parents. Recently, I've started learning French, and it has proven to be difficult (with respect to mastering the standard French accent). I have heard that Japanese, Mandarin, and Russian are among some of the hardest languages to learn. I don't find Mandarin to be too hard to understand, but this is probably due to my background in Cantonese. It's amazing how easy we soak up languages as children. I'm sure our ego as adults has something to do with it.

    I can speak two languages fluently. One is English obviously and the other one is Hungarian. I was born in Hungary but moved to the UK when I was four years old, so that's how I was able to learn English.

    My native tongue is French Creole, but, I only remember a little. I speak English fluently, a little bit of Russian, Yiddish and Japanese.
