velochic......do you cycle on the track? Reason I ask is usernames similar to yours are seen in cycling forums. Just curious, that's all.

I'm fairly fluent in English, lol. I know enough Spanish to get the gist of some conversations. Not so important now that I'm married, but I can say, "Are you married?" in Swedish, as well as "Yes, I am married," and "No, I am not married."

Barbara - I speak English fluently (notice my posts elsewhere), but aside from having learned a few sayings in other languages (I tend to do that when I know I'm going to vist other countries), I have the ability of providing a large noisy stomach grumble if hungry enough that needs little interpretation :-)

Yes, I used to race fixed gear. Too old now.

I'm old too, but I've been riding my fixed gear regularly on the streets (w/front brake) for at least 15 years.....way before all the hipsters wannabes came into the scene. I intend to keep riding at least til I'm 90. You might have noticed my addiction to FG from my username.

Does body language count?

I know how to say "Oooo, there's a snake in my bag!" in spanish. Other than that, I only massacre the english language. I should learn more spanish.

English, yes; I used to teach it. The romance languages I can read; Spanish I understand spoken (don't tell my customers) but can't speak well.

My grandparents were from Sweden, and they were determined that their kids would only speak English (something I have always regretted). My mom said the only time they ever heard Swedish around the house was at Christmas and birthdays, and when my grandfather hit his thumb with the hammer.
