    Mine was Hungarian, both parents spoke it fluently, as did my uncle and aunt who lived with us in London, so I learned it naturally without effort. But after leaving home I gradually forgot much. How to respond to the poll? English was my main language as it is now.

    No, it is my second: Dutch is my first language.
    To measure life, learn thou betimes, and know / Toward solid good what leads the nearest way; / For other things mild Heav'n a time ordains, / And disapproves that care, though wise in show, / That with superfluous burden loads the day, / And when God sends a cheerful hour, refrains.

    Nope. It's not even my second language. It's my third language.

    Dutch is my native language, English a good second though. I'm studying it so I should be at least somewhat capable of producing good English!

    English is my first language, but after reading some of my posts on various web sites, editing stories I have written I sometimes wonder.

    First language. Though I can speak conversationally in two others (latin is dead, but the conversation wouldn't be).

    Second one. My native is Russian. The only problem with a second language - it is informative for me. I do not feel a style and beauty of reading on English. I would love to get this feeling of unique style from an English book. Saying that, even offensive words would not sound so offensive for non-natives as for natives, lol.

    English is my only language. Know a handful of French words but not enough to have a conversation.

    ("...well it could be so about me..." went the goblin not so sure really, and certainly without any recollection therein, before adding "...I mean if anyone else here is anything to go by now, I imagine I too spoke babytalk first and then progressed from there to something that these adults speak now...", but the truth was that the goblin just spoke like any other goblin did, just your average everyday sort of goblin so to speak, as he looked around for the coffee machine and some friendly faces to go with it, saying "...ok, so who'll swap cabbages for kings with me, moreover who can advise me upon the exchange rate...")
