a little bit of German and Italian (so far removed from using either so both are barely workable at this point...still can understand when reading/listening tho)

Always working on my Castellano and Francais, but it's slow work since I'm not in school.

1. Italian (not fluently as I have never been there but I can put sentences together and understand about half of what is said) So... Non posso parlare perfetto l'italiano, ma non c'e male. I know all the spelling and grammer rules and sounds.

2. Spanish - I can speak a little Spanish. I can understand more because people are always speaking it at work and due to my understanding quite a bit of Italian, they are so similar I can pick up what they say sometimes. But the majority of the time I'm fairly lost when people speak it. Like Italian, I know the grammar rules and sounds of the words so I won't sound like an idiot if reading stuff.

German - Very little. I'm trying to learn it right now though and can say things like Kan ich heir hoyta abbent bleiben? (can I stay here tonight?) I'm sure I spelled most of that wrong because I have no idea on the spelling and the grammar rules I only know a little.

I am very interested in language. I plan learning many languages in my life. But like with any language, unless you are using it constantly, you will never learn it fully. From my experience, Spanish is easy hell, Italian is like complicated Spanish, and German is difficult. The way they throw the verbs around in German is almost comical trying to learn you will feel like a moron a lot haha.

I know some basic Spanish and basic American Sign Language. I probably know more Spanish words than ASL, but I'm probably better at understanding ASL and can communicate better using it because I don't have to worry about sentence structure.
