    Default What languages do you speak?

    Hi everyone,

    I just thought I'd like to get a better idea of how certain languages are represented here on Serebii, so if you could post which languages you speak and to what level, that would be great. EG

    Just for future reference, this would go to the polls section, but I'll answer your question.

    English- Yeah...
    German- Stale
    Spanish- Stale
    Japanese- learning katakana
    Italian- Know the alphabet and some numbers.

    Though I did take a year of French and 2 years of Spanish in high school.

    I don't remember any of it.

    My native language is Finnish and I also speak English quite well. I am also somewhat familiar with Swedish since most of my family speaks it and I know some basics of German.

    Shit son, I love language topics.

    Lessee...

    Native: Finnish
    Fluent: English
    Pretty Good: Japanese
    Intermediate: Spanish, Swedish
    Basic: German
    Very Basic: Russian, Korean
    "Look I know a few words and sentences!": Estonian, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian

    So why're you learning Finnish, OP? It's not exactly a useful language to know.

    Mainly because it sounds cool. I also like a lot of Finnish music, and some friends of mine speak it.

    Alright, that's cool. Was just curious 'cause it's a pretty rare choice for a language to learn, heh. I don't consider it too cool-sounding either, but that's probably because it's my mother tongue and I hear it all the time.

    Anyway, g'luck with it man!

    I have decent French and Irish as well as English but unfortunately one of those is not of much use to me

    The only language that I fluently speak is English, but I can speak some basic Spanish. I also did take a semester of Japanese, but I don't remember much.

    Native: English & French

    I speak both fluently and I`m still debating whether or not to do my post secondary studies in French or English. I also want to learn another language but I have no idea which one (Not Spanish).
