Does anyone here speak more than one language or wish they could? I'm trying to learn Japanese myself right now and am a native English speaker.

I learned two years of Spanish in high school, so I recognize some Spanish words and phrases, but I'm by no means fluent. But I speak English natively. :P

I know English (really well) and basic bengali. It could use a lot of work. xD

Took four years of Spanish, used to be fluent enough that I could speak in any verb tense and carry very basic conversations. I lost most of it through college, though, but spanish is a very easy language to pick up.

I'm interested in learning Japanese, though due to it using so many different sets of writing (hirigana, katagana, kanji, etc.) I've heard it can be a struggle. Still, Japanese would be a sweet language to pick up. Props to you, critter141151, for trying to learn it!

I know:
-Spanish(First language)
-English
-French
-Russian
-Am currently learning Japanese. Which is rather a large struggle do deal with. It is getting a little bit easier now that I've memorized Katagana and Hiragana.

I only know English, but I took 4 year of Spanish in high school, but I can't really speak it well anymore. I can understand it if I'm reading it, though.
