Other than that, I'm a little surprised that nobody caught onto my Bender (Futurama) reference in all of this.

Who says nobody caught on? :wink:

A little German? Does that mean you only speak German to German speaking midgets? :D

It was easier than learning High German. :confused:

hehehe.....

No, I was stationed in Germany for 2 years, and I learned a lot...  Unfortunately that was in the 1980's, so I've also forgotten a lot. :confused:

Right now :

- French (as the birth language)

- American English (so tar from the perfection, but being in Florida for a year and half now helps me a lot)

- Spanish... actually we start learning Spanish as a second "mandatory" language at school when I was 10. Yep, in our midget territory the English is an obligation at 7-8, and a second has to be learnt. But don't worry it strictly doesn't mean that we are good, it's even the total opposite as most of our teachers and what should be their passion of teaching are just pitiful at the best. So I, just like many others, do not speak Spanish, but a mix of Argentinian, Chilean, Cuban, Dominican, Peruvian, Puerto-Rican and Venezuelan... just showing the terrible mix of different teachers we got.

 

And I used to speak a bit of :

- Italian

- Polish

- Portuguese

- Russian (Totally forgotten for now... apart of the insults)

 

I would love to restart the Russian completely and learn my dreams of Hebrew than modern Persian.

English is my native language, and I'm studying Japanese... 日本語は ちょっとしか分かります

And I really want to learn German at some point, I love its sound.

My native language is Portuguese, and since my family moved twice when I was younger, I also speak English fluently (I mush american and brit spelling all the time), although my pronunciation of everything has kinda died due to a lack of speaking it.

I do speak a tiny bit of French, Spanish, and Italian. I can also understand Pig Latin, Caesar, Atbash, and A1Z26. Currently trying to learn Mando'a and Aurebesh.

English as my native language, Spanish with a Castilian accent (long story), a little bit of Mandarin...

Oh, and C, C++, Java, C#, and a little bit of FORTH (still working on that last one).

Huh, I never noticed this thread until TOTM.

Other than English of course, I speak a little bit of German as I'm taking I class in it at school.

Hallo, ich bin ein Brot. Ich habe zwei alter Bruder. Ich habe Speck und Eier gern.

English, Swedish and a bit of French.

I can read Danish easily (since it's similar to Swedish), same story for Norwegian. 

I can understand Oriya when it''s spoken (since my parents speak it to each other all the time). I have no clue how to read, write or speak it, though. :P 

Oh, and I know "thank you" in Chinese.

In descending order of fluency:  English, Japanese, French, Russian (the latter's pretty rusty).  Tiny smattering of words in Mandarin.

Or if you prefer machine languages:  Java, C#, C++, C, perl, bash, Scala, with ancient and decades-unused Fortran, Pascal, and BASIC lurking in there.  (But not COBOL.  I'm old, but I'm not that old.)  :)  My favorites are C# (for productivity), Scala (for sheer coolness), and Java (for buying the groceries, even though I don't actually like it).

Just a ton of accents XD

I know... maybe like 3 words of assorted languages (Spanish, French, German, 'no' in Russian); and they're mainly "Do you speak English?" :sticktongue:

I often wonder, exactly how many computer geeks out there knew this:
 

Quote

Origin

1980s: from Swift's Gulliver's Travels, in which big-endians and little-endians ate boiled eggs by breaking the ‘big’ end or ‘little’ end respectively.

I've often wondered who breaks their egg on an end. It's supposed to be broken on the equator; it's weakest there.

I speak Portuguese as my native tongue and English.

I've been reading, writing and listening in English pretty much daily for over a decade, so I'm fluent, but I don't talk, so my accent is still quite noticeable.

I've also taken some semesters of German in college, but unfortunately that didn't stick :(

I speak Spanish as native, and also I'm native to the almost forgotten Catalan language (because in Spain, in some regions, we don't have enough with one language, we need TWO native languages (Catalan in my case, Euskera in Euskadi (also known as Basque Country) and Galician in Galice

Si, ara mateix parlo català, l'idioma de Catalunya. (Translation: Now I speak Catalan, the language front Catalonia)

Also, I speak a little of German
