I speak English, French and German. Although my french is currently being worked on with a course, I'll surely be fluent again after I've completed this course. (j'ai parlé français parisien quand j'avais 15 ans.)

Ok, so maybe pig latin will make you bilingual, can you speak it fluently?

Profanity! I should have added that to my list of languages too! (Actually, my favourite profanity is in German, LOL.. Every other word I hear in Germany is scheiße!).

No seriously though, it has been a great help being trilingual. German got me by in Germany. French sort of helped me in Quebec, but not really... strange, I thought I'd pick up on Quebecois being a french speaker myself, didnt ever happen LOL.

i am too bilingual. it is no use here in canada, however i speak english and danish. so officially i am bilingual as in i speaking two languages, but i am not bilingual in the sense that most canadians think. ofcourse, i can also understand and speak some swedish and norwegian.

i have lived in canada for a large part of my life, so i never use those languages at all... rarely with my family also.

So it looks like a lot of us are bilingual! Thats cool.. I heard on a radio program that being bilingual makes your more proficient in other things.

Hey,

I am a Dutch student of English, but that does not say that i am billingual. Billingual means that you are equally well in both languages. This however is very difficult as you always choose one language over another. I am dutch and have always been. I am a student of English and therefore speak English very well. My parents live in Germany and i therefore also speak German on a regular basis. Besides my boyfriend has lived in brussels where we spoke French.

-> Btw i don't think Nijmegen is so small.. And its the oldest city of the Netherlands.. So its kinda famous!

- Hmm i thought Nijmegen had above 200000 ppl.. Cause there are 1/2 million living in Amsterdam and Rotterdam (60000 maar? Kan toch niet?)

Cya!

My bad! On www.nijmegen.nl (external - login to view) it says
--> Nijmeegse bevolking in 2003 weer 1000 mensen gegroeid
Op 1 januari 2004 woonden er 157.473 mensen in Nijmegen.

But you have probably lived longer in Nijmegen than me, because i only live in Nijmegen for 1,5 year now.

Ooh, I don't speak that many languages. I can count to ten in Spanish, French, and Chinese...oh, yeah, and English.

I'm learning Spanish in school, so I know some of that, not too much, but enough for basic stuff.
