Alternatively: What languages do you speak fluently? This is a pretty generously sized message board with members from all over the world. We can't all be exclusively English speaking. For those who aren't, what is your first language? If you like, you can share when you learnt English, and why. To clarify, I'm asking: 1. What your first language is if it is not English, and 2. Regardless of your first language, if you speak any other languages fluently. Mine is French. I started learning to read English in grade 4 and remained almost exclusively educated in French until the end of grade 9. I'm completely bilingual. I'm told I have a French accent in Spanish, and sound fairly natural in English and Japanese. I'm a big language nerd I think learning languages is a super bomb use of brain space.
