Portuguese as native speaker, French very fluently, English as well. I'm learning Spanish by myself by reading and listening to an audiobook of Don Quijote (it really works if you have some insight on the language as I have by knowing portuguese), but now I can have a conversation in spanish being successful in 90% (+/- 5%) of my words, with probably no foreign accent.
I also understand Italian and could probably follow a conversation (maybe not participate).
Finally, I'm starting my German course next wednesday!
So, 3 perfectly, 1 at 90%, 1 at 50% and 1 coming up!

I noticed a Don Quijote audiobook is available on YouTube.

I have to check that! I'm listening to one made by Librivox, they have quite a few, and good ones IMO.

I have a 'audiobooks' app on iOS, and they have a wide list of them. All that I have listened to were made by volunteers of librivox, and they are public domain, so...no cost whatsoever.

Librivox are always free. They get volunteers to record things in the public domain, people torrent them to save the website bandwidth and then people assume that they are illegal copies since they think that's what torrents are for ;)
