    How many languages do you speak?

    Report bad ads?

    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 just speak 2: English and Spanish. But I hope to make it 3 by summer; I'm working hard on Turkish for a trip to Turkey to visit my daughter. I can also read Koine Greek, but nobody actually speaks it anymore.

    Wow! Admirable. I like it how other people can speak "dead" languages, but wouldn't have the patience or motivation to learn one myself.

    I hope you'll make it to visit your daugther! It's also easier when people around you speak just that language and you have no other choice than to learn it. But these days quite a lot of people know enough English, especially in Turkey?

    AssalamuAlaykum

    English - Read, write, converse

    Urdu - Read, write, converse

    Gujrati - Read, write, can understand spoken Gujrati but cant converse too well.

    Arabic - Read, write, can converse a litte but very basic.

    WassalamuAlaykum

    P.S Bangla is on the list insha'Allah soon
