Default Re: What Languages do you Speak?

English and Southern Indiana English.

I took French for 3 years in high school and 2 in college, now I can barely speak a word. Use it or lose it indeed.

Only Spanish and poor English.
I can understand all the romance languages​​ like Portuguese, Italian, Catalan, Galician, etc. I also can understand a little Caló (Iberian Gypsy language).

Did you leave out French because you hate them or did you just forget?

Maybe you have not seen it but I wrote "etc" to avoid having to write all the extensive list. And to be fair I find easier to understand Portuguese or Italian than French

Maybe I used wrong "etc" which incidentally is a latin expression.

I saw it, but I found it meaningful that you mentioned Catalan and Galician specifically while relegating French in the "etc" category as if it wasn't one of the most common languages in Europe.
Clearly you don't give a f_ck about it, and I agree
