2 languages, a half and a quarter...lol

English and Spanish fluently

French - if you speak slowly

Italian - enough to ask for directions

It was Charlemagne that said "To have another language is to possess a second soul"

Very true, I speak several languages...my mum even speaks Esperanto.

I've studied Russian, Latin and ancient greek.
But speaking, I'd say English, German and French (oh but it's been a WHILE)...
