I am fluent on Lithuanian language, because it's my mother language, but it's quite a hard language to learn, especially for foreign people, also I am not so bad at English, except when speaking I have this accent and I can't speak so fast like real English people do + my dictionary is quite low, it's very hard for me to speak for example about foods, I need to take a dictionary to say what a dumpling is.. I think that's because I usually read and write much more than speak and I don't write to much about foods, so all I need is a good practice in some foreign country.. I also can easily speak Russian and understand it, but I definitely can't write any, due to I never wanted nor I want to learn it ^_^ though I can read it very slowly ;) I learnt German for about 4 years in School, but I don't remember anything, I can say basic stuff though, whats my name and where I live ;D

No, Lithuanian language has nothing to do with Russian, Cyrillic, even though there are some words taken from them, they have taken from us.. but Lithuanian language belongs to Balts, and in fact it didn't change a lot from the past, as did most of the languages, so it is attractive to historians, the letters are latin, just that we have "ąčęėįšųūž" 9 more letters and officially there are no qwx letters in the abc ;D

You can always read more on Wikipedia ^_^

I speak fluent english, as I am from the UK. Being precise, I am from Scotland. Therefor, I also know Scots, Scottish English (Scots and Scottish English are similiar) and a small amount of gaelic. I also know some french, as most people in western countries do, and am hoping to learn dutch. I also know some basic grammar of spanish, but very little vocabulary.

I can read, write, and speak English and Navajo (Native American tribe).

I tried learning from one of thoughs books that have like +18 languages to learn greetings and such from. It's been two years since then but I don't think I remember enought to impress the opposite sex. But from time to time it comes up like in business or tourist situations. Anywho I would be great to learn that stuff online again.

I only seem to learn and retain languages with i'm immersed in that kind of environment - like a college/university setting. Oh well ^_^

I think, your title should be "How many languages do you speak?"

Not necessarily. I love the "fluently" part of the title.
I would say that I speak SQL language rather fluently. My English is relly not fluent. My C++ is not existent. And my html pages are worldwidely said very ugly. So my fluent language count should be "1". Or maybe should I also add +1 for Germand ans Spanish ? But these are only holidays languages, so in standard situation I need several hours in order to resynch.

Well, I speak english, mandarin(chinese) and malay fluently. Since I'm a chinese, and like most chinese, we speak own own dialect as well as other chinese dialects . If dialect can be considered a language, it would plenty. Hokkien, cantonese, hakka, teochew are considered fluent for me. That would be counted as 7 i guess. Not sure if other races are considering their dialect as language?

With the "fluent" restriction, I am limited to English. Next, which I like a lot, but don't practice enough, is Esperanto. It uses the Roman alphabet, minus qwyx, plus ĉĝĥĵŝŭ. It is artificial, phonetic, almost completely regular, and very easy to learn. Really. When I first heard of it, I was in my second year of struggling with Russian at MIT, and the president of the Harvard Esperanto Club told me he could have me speaking it in 10 lessons over 10 weekends. Really!? I asked. He did it! That was 41 years ago, and I am still able to read (most of) the Esperanto Wikipedia.

I have taken a semester or more of: Latin, Russian, Italian and French, plus self-study of German, Japanese and Chinese. Latin was in High School, and actually proved useful when I was at the Circus Maximus in Rome, and met a Spaniard who spoke no English. At the time, I spoke no Italian. We both spoke Latin, so we got along! I studied all the other languages in preparation for visiting countries where they were spoken, except for Chinese.

My son took a class in Chinese, so I studied along with him. Computers have really caused a revolution in the study of Chinese! I spent months learning how to look up Chinese characters in a dictionary by identifying radicals and counting strokes. Now, I just put the UTF-8 representation into a search engine, and immediately get the English translation of that character (in isolation).

The most fundamental conclusion I can draw from my experience is: if you don't use it, you'll lose it!
