Most of the people here speak more then one language, so why wont you tell us which languages do you speak?
I speak Hebrew, English & a bit Idish.
Hebrew is my native language, English I learned at school, & Idish (a mix of few langs, was popular to the Jews of Europe. Most of the Idish speakers murdered in the Holocast) I learnd from my family members who use to speak it with me when I was a kid. I don't know how to speak idish, but when I hear Idish I usually understand it.

English (my first language, so naturally I'm fluent)
Spanish (I've taken two full years of it at school and we've learned quite a lot, but I'm not near fluent. I could have a basic conversation though.)
I'm also in the process (as of yesterday) of learning Russian.

Greek (Mother tongue though I was born and raised in the US. My mother only spoke Greek to me so I really didn't learn much english until I went to school as strange as that may sound. In fact, I spent Kindergarten and First Grade in ESL)

Chinese (Cantonese and Putonghua) -- mother tongue
English -- ironically more fluent than my Chinese!
I've got a friend whose father is French, mother is emigrated Chinese, grandma is native Chinese, maid is Spanish.... so he spoke French, Chinese, English and Spanish in the first place... and then he learned German, Swedish and Japanese and spoke all of them fluently... scary...
