    How many languages do you speak? (OP)


    Including your native tongue, how many languages do you speak well enough to read a newspaper or have a conversation with another person in that language?
    (Please consider multiple dialects of the same language that can be mutually understood as one language, whereas those that cannot be mutually understood -- such as Cantonese and Mandarin -- count as two languages.)

    Arabic....read, write and converse

    English....read, write and converse

    Japanese.....still in my way, can start a very basic converse, although I can read hiragana characters perfectly so far alhumdulilah

    Wow... I wish I could say that. I can for English and Arabic (read, write and converse very basically). And Urdu- conversing only. How can you read Urdu? It's impossible! Can't do it without harakaat (as you have in Arabic).

    Re: How many languages do you speak?

    My first language is Penangite (it's like a Malay language + English + Hokkien + Arabic + Tamil)... and it's considered as a dialect of Malaysian Language....

    I also can speak and write in English and Arabic (but my English is way better than my Arabic)...

    I also have no problem with Indonesian Language, the differences between Malaysian and Indonesian is like between Italian and Spanish...

    so... it's 4?
