Do computer programming languages count? ;D

Well... Portuguese, English and Spanish are easy for me. Also studied French, but haven't used much. Can also easily understand Italian, but never studied it.

But to really speak/write/read FLUENTLY, only PT and EN comply with those requirements.

Well, I can read and understand English, French, Italian, some Japanese and Latin and a tiny little bit of Russian.

As for speaking fluently so that I can do counseling, write mostly flawless texts and translations and earn my money with it  etc - that would be only German and English.

You can understand a large amount of languages Shaina! That's quite an accomplishment :3

As for me, I can 96% read, write, and speak Japanese.
English is my first language so of course I know that.
Then there is Korean; which I'm slowly learning, though I can definitely pronounce it, and I know a little Latin from when I took it in my freshman year of high school.

Well, I just wish I would manage to speak/read Japanese properly and not just rudimentarily! I really envy you your proficiency in Japanese!

I can obviously read, understand and speak Finnish fluently since it's my mother language. ...I also read and understand English very fluently, but talking is another thing. I can pronounce the words and I know what I'm saying, but I'm too shy to talk. xD

I also understand tiny bits of Spanish and Swedish (both reading and hearing work), and I have come to understand some Japanese phrases and words when I hear them (I'm going to take Japanese as a course if I ever end up in university).

PS. I'm also aiming to become an English-Finnish-English translator. So if I ever get that education I need, then you have a professional in your midst, probably translating the English Saint Seiya fansubs into Finnish and spreading the love. x33333

Computer programming languages should count, but since that's not exactly my forte...

I'm a native English speaker.  I can also fluently understand Tamil (Sri Lankan, not Indian), but I can only say a few words like mom, dad, and older sister (I have one of those).  Umm... I can also write my first name in Tamil...  I took French in high school and college for a total of 4 years, so my reading comprehension is really good.  I have good listening skills, but it takes me a long time to process and respond in French.  So I'm not much of a conversationalist outside of English.

I can SING in all Romance languages though, but I guess that's cheating thankyouvoicelessons.

Well, my first language is Polish and I've been learning English for 11 years, so I'm good enough to talk, read and write. Currently learning German at school and failing badly and Japanese in extra class and doing well XD; When I go to high school, I'll pick two more languages to learn
