    Ooh, I'm kind of spreading myself thin.. I like learning a few things in many languages, rather than focusing too much... I guess I figure I'll learn by travelling and immersion

    Latin? I really like it... My French teacher started to teach it, so I picked it up a few years later... about 3 years after picking up French, Chinese and Spanish, I began Italian and Latin I started Russian this summer, and Romanian caught my interest last December... I learnt most of my Ro between January and March, though... Haven't learnt much since then, although I do understand a lot as well as trying to pick up more fluency

    I also have issues with my Italian... I throw in mostly Spanish and sometimes Ro I never get languages mixed up, but I am aware when I do this for lack of better words..I feel bad, 'coz Italian is the only language to which I do this mixing-up (but my teacher is ok with it, since she speaks Spanish )

    Just one word: WOW!!!

    I speak only English and German, learning Romanian and Greek... and I used to speak Italian (and now I can't say a single sentence cause only Romanian words come to my mind ... but I understand it)... learned French and Spanish in school too but never used them...

    Why in the world do you study Latin!?!? I had to study it at university and considered it pretty unhelpful (and complicated of course)... You're looking for challenges, aren't you?

    LOL, you should see my Ro grammar... It's not good I also understand a lot!

    I'm only fluent in English and French, and my French grammar isn't very proper My spelling is good, though

    I also study Spanish, which I'm very good at as well... Italian, of which I understand a lot... Latin ... Russian, more recently , my first Slavic experimentation... and Chinese, which I think I do well in, though I'm not fluent.

    Outside of lessons, I learn Romanian, Arabic, Greek and Polish as well as trying to pick up some Serbo-Croatian All done online!!

    Hey Well, I'm trying to learn a bit... How many languages do you speak? Or should I ask how many languages you don't speak - I've seen your posts spread almost everywhere here and I'm impressed I'm learning Romanian too but I'm still bad at it, even though I understand a lot
