Hey guys,

Just wondering what variety of languages people use on this forum. I'm almost positive most people have English as a first language (like me) but it still, I think, would be interesting to know.

Oh yeah, if you speak another language, you can just say so :) And I'll try to use this forum more for image posting rather than nitpicking (just kidding) :D

Cheers!

American English; I can read a little French, German, and have been picking up some Japanese (I am starting to recognize some alphabet characters) Also my forte is nonsense, but it's hard to translate. ::)

Actually I would venture to guess (without looking at the votes yet) that a large proportion of people here are not native English speakers (though clearly many are quite fluent, often times even more so than us native speakers ;D).

English first, but i was lucky to spend 2 years of college living in Rome, joined the military and went to spain for 3 years, so a garbled mix there.  also some written japanese due to my hobby of origami.  the wife knows a bit of yiddish and hebrew and the girls are leaning conversational hebrew for upcoming trips to isreal,

First main language is Portuguese, then a little European Spanish, Italian,
and American English. Also the Queen´s proper English and Shakespearean english.
From living abroad for many years I can also speak New York city style english, ghetto jive,
Central America Spanish, South American Spanish and a few words in Indian, African, Japanese
and Chinese.
The Chinese and Japanese part is only from ordering Chinese food from my favourite restaurant  ::)

I forget to mention 'Double Speak'. I also could translate Ronald Reagan's speeches, before Larry Speaks would come on and explain what he meant to say. 'The Great Communicator' indeed. :-X

HeHeHe, I remember him well back in the Jurassic Era of the 1980´s. He was a pretty cool ol´geezer
and a funny guy too  ;D
Once he was joking around during a microfone check before one of his radio broadcasts and said...
" My fellow Americans... I'm pleased to announce... that I've signed legislation outlawing the Soviet Union.
We begin bombing in five minutes."  :P LOL  :D I wonder if Gorbachev was laughing at that joke

" My fellow Americans... I'm pleased to announce... that I've signed legislation outlawing the Soviet Union.

It was statements like that which made me think he was a lunatic. If a world leader, armed with biological and nuclear weapons, said that about my country I would be very alarmed. Then there was the drugs imported to fund weapons to Iran. The Meese commission investigating porn. Trickle down economics; a policy which has almost destroyed the lower middle class...
