    English is my first language, but I also speak fragmented French, German, and Latin, and I'm fluent in Nadsat.

    English, though Hungarian was the language I learned as an infant and now Swedish in old age. But both Swedish and Hungarian have faded as we speak English at home.

    They say that the first language you learn as an infant is the one you will return to in old age. As an infant everyone around me spoke Hungarian, so I naturally picked it all up. I hadn't realised how this had happened, but it did. Even today I sometimes sing old Hungarian songs that I learned in my teens.

    Spanish is my first language. I get by in French too and I understand a little bit of Euskera, the language spoken in the Basque Country.
    I think that Scots can be considered a language in its own right. I studied that a dialect is just a language spoken in a specific place. I think it sounds great.

    English is the only language I am fluent in although I did have about 6 years of French, so I can sort of read it. I also know a lot of Latin prayers.

    English is my mother tongue, and Swahili was my survival in the market place tongue in the 1950s through 60s. Can greet in several other African languages and cuss a little unfortunately. Danish is my choice of pastry only.

    Romanian here.
    I started studying French in school first, before English. So I guess French should be my second language (though I really don't know it very well. Or well. Or at all!)
