    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.)

    Although Somalia joined the Arab League in 1974, accords Arabic official language status, and Arabic is spoken by Somalis in commerce, religion and education, the country's primary language is Somali.

    English, Pashto, Dari, took Spanish for a year in middle school, it's my third year of Latin, and I understand urdu/hindi as a result of watching so many shows. Of course I cannot speak Spanish fluently, I've forgotten everything lol.
