    English is not my first language, but started taking classes since I was 6 or 5 years old

    I grew up speaking Spanish until I got into school. I could speak English before, but my parents spoke Spanish--my mother at the time didn't know English. But I only really use English unless I'm in Mexico.

    Gujarati is my mother tongue ,but technically speaking I can't read or write in Gujarati, I feel comfortable communicating in English.guess....I guess that makes it the first language.

    For me, English and French are both my "first" languages, since I was born in an English-speaking country to English-speaking parents, but immediately after birth I moved to Geneva. I grew up speaking Frenglish, that is I would intertwine English and French when speaking and even writing. This proved hard for teachers to understand me (they either spoke only French or only English), so I adapted to they country I was living in. Now I live in the US, however, so I only speak English. But, if I ever move to a French-speaking country, I can pass for a french speaker.

    English is my first language (I live in the US), but Spanish is a second language for me.

    My first language is Brazilian Portuguese and I would say that it is my only one language, because I started my learning in English Language has just five or six months. So I'm just a learner in English which will be my second language.
    Addicionaly I can read and write, with some difficult, in Spanish too.

    Does someone here keep annual records of forum demographics or something?
    I think if you make a signature, you should inspire some emotion in someone else. I also think it would be pretentious for me to think I could do that.

    I only speak English. The only other language I have ever taken has been Latin.
