    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.)

    I really do envy all of you. I am sad to say I only speak my native language and even then not so good . I do wish that the American education system really pushed foreign language especially in the youth. I would love to be multi-lingual.

    Yeah that was the point I was trying to say, that Urdu has no harakaat, so that's why on some of the words I find it really hard.

    truest me it's not that fun when you speak different languages in your dreams. People find it quite annoying. I move to us not that far ago and they aren't that bad. some of the children channels do try to teach Chinese <- i think thats how you spell it. As well as Mexican, they are doing far better than some of the Scandinavian counties.

    Re: How many languages do you speak?

    I speak 2 different languages. I am perfect in both English and Farsi. However, I cannot read or write in Farsi.

    I am fairly good in French.

    But, I really want to learn Arabic. Such a beautiful language...
