    I speak English and a little German and I also can do a terrible British accent. My Canadian accent, however, is quite good, eh?

    English, several years of german through school, picking up spanish a bit here in southern california. I think if I went to Germany and took a refresher I could get along after a month or so.

    Also speak hubba dubba, pig latin, and a few other kid - friendly "coded" languages. :grin:

    Hungarian is first.
    English is second.
    German is a very distant third.

    Spoke French originally, switched to English, speak only broken French now, some Spanish, some Italian, can understand enough German to get by, can't speak much of it though.

    It is so much easier to recognize words and understand a language, but it is so much harder to speak it (for me). I go to French forums and can understand enough to get by, but I could never reply to a post.
