I speak enough Lakota (Sioux) to talk to my sled dogs. Makes it hard for other mushers commands to affect them. Couldn't carry on a conversation, but dogs don't need all that much, you can call them every dirty name in the book and if you don't raise you voice it sounds like GOOD DOG to them! We also use it a bit on the job, keeps home owners from knowing if something is wrong. They just panic without reason so we try to keep them in the dark about how the building is going. If you have any building or remodeling done your carpenters will be MUCH happier if you just stand back and let them get it done! wink.gif

I speak enough Navajo to get me into serious trouble laugh.gif ! I know when our folks at church bow their heads and it's not time to pray, I have probably cussed a blue streak!

Had a friend who wanted to ask for an apple. The word for apple in Navajo is bilasaana (can't put the proper accent marks here). Instead, he asked for a bilagaana to eat. Unfortunately, that is the word for a white person rolleyes.gif !

Needless to day, he didn't live that one down for a while. Take care and have a great day!

lol.gif The cannibal apple.

I consider German a second language now. By the phrasing of the question of what languages I've been exposed to, I'll list in order as best I can, not including English:

German
Scottish Gaelic
Irish Gaelic
Spanish
French
Tagalog
Quenya
Sendarin
Russian
Portugese

The only one on that list I feel confortable using is German, and the last one on the list I can speak a sentance in is Spanish

Ok - I'm fluent in American Sign Language, can speak some Spanish, French, and Italian.

Occassionally I can actually speak English - that's a difficult one though. I know - I'm an English teacher. tongue.gif

Swedish and Spanish are the two main ones I can speak but understand more of. I also can do a little Arabic, due to being married to one, and some French. I do know only a few word of Gaelic. As well as Portuguese and Tagalog

French (5/5), just because I am.
English (3/5), otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Norwegian (1/5) -I've learned it in a past life, then forgotten most of it traveling in another dimension (those things happen lookaround.gif).
I've actively started learning Breton, so we will put it at 1/5 for now... And I wont stop until I've reached 3/5 for the least.
And I'm considering learning Irish Gaelic in the near future

I am in the process of learning spanish and russian, and I know a few phrases in irish gaelic. Aaediwen where did you learn the less common languages?

What exactly is Tagalog, and where is it spoken? There is some used as examples in my linguistics book from school, and it sure is quite an interesting language.

I speak English, I can read and write Welsh but my speaking and listening comprehension is not good. I still have alot to learn. I know a little German too. I'd like to learn Russian and re-learn German. Spanish would be good too since its a languge I could try to speak with somebody here in the US.

Celtic Cat - Tagalog is a major language of the Phillipines. Its in the Austronesian language family with major influences from Spanish, Min Nan Chinese, English and Malay. I think some are just calling it Filipino now.

German -- Introduced to it when it was taught in Kindergarten and First grade, then took classes in Middle and High School
Scottish Gaelic - bought a text book and cassette set to teach myself
Irish Gaelic -- encountered around here on CRN, and picked up a few phrases
Spanish -- Took one class in High School
French -- 3 week intro course in Middle School
Tagalog -- A phillipino friend of mine at work speaks primarally Tagalog and English
Quenya -- Studied the appendices of LOTR
Sendarin -- Studied the appendices of LOTR
Russian -- Some of my friends have spoken it as a second (or third) language
Portugese -- I worked with some Brazillians quite a bit last year, and they introduced me to it
