Finnish-native
Swedish-native, but extremely rusty
English-good, i'd like to think i'm fluent with this
Japanese-studied for a few years, mostly understanding
German-know some words
Spanish-know some words

Few greetings and such from few other languages but they don't really count.

Hooray! A fellow angsty hormone-ridden teenager!

know Danish (not the things you eat ofc. ;), they are actually called berliner boller (berliner-buns) in Denmark ^^)
know english
know german
I understand swedish and Norwegian as well (though my attempts at speaking Norwegian and swedish results in a good scandinavian accent which lies in the middle of both :P)

I know a few words in sindarin, but never got around to more than that
a few phrases in latin (nunc est bibendum, alia iacta est, acta est fabula, festina lente etc., some of the classical ^^)
and some japanese phrases (incredible that we are so many who knows a bit japanese or more :S :D)

hmm that about sums it up for me I guess :)

Well, here I goes.

Dutch (Nederlands) - Home Language
English (English) - Second Language
Papiamentu (From the Netherlands Antilles) (Antilliaans) - Third?
French (Français) - Fourth, well reading and listening mostly. Speaking's a bit harder.
German (Deutsch) - Quite easy as the grammar mostly looks like Dutch. Still some diffuculties sometimes.
Don't know how it's called in English (Afrikaans/South-Africa) - Understand it. Speaking gives me a hard time)
Na'vi (Na'vi) - Of course, not that well, but I'm working really hard on it now.

I want to add Japanese to the list. Some people say that I already speak enough languages.

Well, to add some more languages:
language form Surinam - Know some words
Japanese - know some words
Chinese - know some words
Arabic - know some words
Turkish - Know some words
Mexico = know some words
Spanish - know some words.
Italian - know some words
Austia - know some words
Norwegian - know some words.

Well, that'll be it.

First language English and fluent in 3 'fun' languages - Pigeon, Egg and Pig Latin. These are in order of most known:

Spanish - lived there for 2 years, pretty fluent,
Portuguese and Italian i can understand a bit because of Spanish
Sign Language - Full finger spelling and quite a few words :) (BSL)
Braille - for some unknown reason! I think i was bored!Used to read Hebrew and know 2 phrases lol
French
Welsh - Lived in Wales for over 19 years and STILL can only JUST hold a small conversation! Oh and count :P
German when i get going
Dutch
Chinese - know a few words and phrases,
Japanese - know few words

It sounds alot but really its only a few words/sentences in most. Id consider myself English and Spanish (although cant spell in Spanish very well!)

Mother Language: Spanish -born in Argentina, so I guess, Argentinian spanish-
Second Language: English -learnt and used for writing because here I don't have many people to talk to in english, besides I love it-
Third: Japanese -I'm in 4th year at the Nikkei Argentinian Center but I'm not a very fluent speaker-
The tiny list:
Italian -know a few phrases but I understand it when reading-
French-same as Italian-
Hebrew -my grandparents talk it and my cousins, but I've never learnt it properly. I know a few words-

I sing with most of them~ That's my method of learning the pronunciations.

and of course Na'Vi -learning since 3 days ago (really short time but I'll get better soon, I really want to)-

kìyevame!

I've taken classes in Spanish (4 years in high school + AP test), Japanese (2 1/3 years in college), and Russian (1 year in college). I'm also working and expanding my own conlang that I started in a class on conlangs last quarter, called Gïsal. :)

If anyone's curious, here's a sample Gesali sentence:

Ĺebda Masań xa gun ŕäb ‘apu guni wońe.
[ʎep-ta    masaŋ ça     kun ɹæp    ʔapʰu  kuni woŋe]
hear-PST Masań COMP he  behind bark   his   dog
Masań heard his dog bark behind him.

English is my native tongue, but I'm currently learning German and French.  I've also created my own language, Šæßka, which I am nearly as fluent in as English.

English, 2nd one I learnt, and I know it pretty much as well as Swedish:
Spanish, been studying for about 2.5 years. I got an A in it, so it works.
And now Na'vi, not much, but I can tell I'm getting better.

If it doesn't sound too much.. I could also add some non-speakable languages.
Here they come:
Visul Basic.NET 2008
XML
HTML
XHTML
C++ (Only little)
Wanting to add PHP but never have time for it.  :)
Wow.. I never realized I knew this all.  :-\ Could never find my talent.. but I think here it is :P

I'm almost depressed by this thread, seems to me like it's a waste of forum space really to list those few languages I know =p

Polish - native
English - fluent
German - fluent, if you don't mind the fact that I'm too lazy to actually remember the simplest things like all the 'der, die, das' and how they change according to tense =p
some words and simple phrases in Spanish and Japanese, but nothing to really boast about

I'd looove to learn something scandinavian... Swedish. Or Icelandic! Or rather Norwegian. Finnish..? Humpf. Oh, yes... and Dutch. In time, in time.

Following Tanhì Tireafya'o's example, I guess I COULD list some programming languages... But maybe not, wouldn't make the post THAT much longer and me that much smarter =p

Swedish - native
English - fluent
German - studied in school for 3 years, but most of our teachers (they had a problem with finding teachers so I think I had at least 10 in three years) sucked so I'm not especially good at it, and I have hardly spoken it for two years.

Na'vi - A few words.

Swedish - Native
English - As good as native, since I spent alot of my very young years in Malaysia, and prefer using English over Swedish these days.
German - Not bad, although I'm not good either. =)
Latin - Very little; I can figure out what simple sentences mean if you give me some time.
Na'vi - Less than Latin, but that will change.
C++ - Far from bad.
Feel free to correct my (potentially big) grammatical screw-ups, it will be appreciated! =)
