Title says it, I wanna know what language ZU peoplez speak!
Write me a sentence if you can!
(As for me, I speak fluent Norwegian and English, I speak some pretty decent Swedish and Danish, I know I tiny bit of Italian and French, and I used to try to learn Katakana, Japanese. Oh, and I'm pretty good with German, but that grammar is my arch-nemesis)
These are what I'm taught. In addition, I completely understand written Dutch which is the lovechild of German and English; written Swedish and Norwegian to a certain extent, I have a basic Russian, Croatian and Polish knowledge, and I can make cool sentences in Latin.
English is my native language..other than that, I'm not fluent in anything else. XD
I took Italian for 6 years, but I barely learned anything. I can still recognize Italian when I hear it and sort of get the gist of what people are saying, but not that great. I had pretty bad Italian teachers, especially in high school. We literally learned the same material over and over each year and would end at the same point at the close of each school year. Went something like this: "-are" verbs, "-ere" verbs, and a bit of "-ire" verbs then.. SUMMER VACATION. And the cycle repeats itself 6 times over, lol.
I think a major problem was my Italian teacher had no control over the class and seemed more interested in showing us Italian films with blatant nudity (which was incredibly awkward) and telling us about the horridly unpleasant high she experienced the one time she tried pot.
It was a very odd class.

"There's a little girl waiting in a garden. She's going to wait a long while, so she's going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she's patient, the days are coming that she'll never forget. Tell her she'll go to see and fight pirates. She'll fall in love with a man who'll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she'll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived. And save a whale in outer space. Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends."
It's probably obvious that I've always spoke English and it's my native language. Sadly, the rural high school I attended gave only three years of Spanish. But I learned two years of French through BYU online classes. I wish I could remember more of my French. However, I plan to learn Spanish at uni.
I'm currently learning French. My French teacher is the absolute best, she has TONS of stuffed animal frogs because the French were sometimes called frogs but she doesn't mean it in a derogatory sense. Anyway, she lets us students borrow her frogs and we keep them at our desks during class. Oh and my Mandarin and Cantonese are really limited. My siblings and I have these mini-competitions to see who can speak the most Chinese and I always fail miserably. At least my pronunciation isn't as bad as my brother's. Heh.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.

I'm a first-level French speaker (my first class was last year, 7th grade.), so I'm not too fluent, but I seem to be learning it really well. It helps to know the English language better than others, I suppose. My French teacher spent half of the class time teaching the other students what prepositions and things were, some kid didn't even know the definition of a noun.
