How many languages you can speak fluently?
How many languages you can speak fluently?

I can speak 4 languages fluently and those are (in descending order) Bengali, Assamese, English and Hindi.

Only one fluently - English. I am on a continuous quest to improve my Spanish, which slowly gets better, and I also speak some German/Deutsch.

"Fluent" may mean different things to different people.

I consider myself fluent in only one, English; but many people say two. I think I'm only moderately literate in French. Definitely a beginner in Italian. I sing in German.

But I can say "thank you" and "Merry Christmas" in at least 9 languages other than English.

Some would even question if I speak one fluently.

I speak English. I can understand Spanish a bit but can not speak it. I am in the process of teaching myself Hebrew, but doubt I will ever be fluent in it.

I can sing Italian, Some French, and German....Speak none of them.
I do pretty well with Southernese

Fluent in English and passable in American Sign Language. I can generally carry on a conversation in sign with little trouble but don't consider myself fluent.
