English and French. I can't read and write French though. I'm learning Spanish, as my Dad thinks it's important to know. So I can understand pointless phrases like "The orange fish is flying" or "The red window is a circle" but can't put those same sentences together on my own to save my life.

English

I'm learning Spanish in school right now. I probably have some of the best Spanish in my class. ((I just pick up things like that really easily.))

While in Kenya I learned some words in Swahili. ((like hello-jambo, ball-mpira, baby-mtoto, children-watoto, smile-cheka, take it- chica, thank you- asante, hakuna matata- no problem, rafiki- friend, simba- lion, twiga- giraffe)) But I don't know how to say any sentences.

I know a few words in French, also.

I can speak English. I can speak some Spanish and some German. Actually, I speak German on a nearly daily basis mostly just cussing and saying "I love you" I also know how to say a few things in French.
I forgot to add that I know some Latin words still from 8th grade. I also speak very fluent gibberish, which I am surprised no one else has mentioned yet.

lol I love this thread. If you can speak " a little bit of a language " you cannot speak the language. I doubt as many people have said they can speak sign language can -- I have level 2, which means I could technically work as a communicator in schools, but I still don't consider myself able to "speak sign language" properly! I'm barely fluent!

You really can only claim to speak a language when you are fluent...

I can speak English (no kidding! ) and a bit of French. It's interesting to know two languages, but I'm not very good at memorizing verbs and vocabulary.
