I love how you spell little, lol. I find that I can often speak 'idiot' on occasion. I can write it too. This is quite some accomplishment as well.

I tell everyone I'm fluent in French. I used to be, kind of, but its easy to forget when you don't use it.

Kudos for your honesty!

I used to be fluent - speaking, reading and writing Spanish, but that was 30 years ago when I was in high school. I still get the gist though.

I can also read and understand French, much to my daughter's dismay! (She had 5 years of French and can really read and write it, but she's a little shy when it comes to speaking it).

Thanks for allowing me to share with you today!

I can get a room, order a meal, and get directions to the restroom in Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese, and Korean, but I would be hard pressed to carry on a conversation in any of them.  However, I do have a funny story that also serves as an oblique warning to not over imbibe.
 
I was stranded in Madrid once and decided to do a little Tosca hopping with my buddies.  I was in my Air Force uniform when we ran into two Spanish soldiers who had some wonderful acco for which I was determined to trade.  I was eventually successful, but it took the better part of ten minutes before they understood what I wanted.  The next morning I expressed my disappointment in my language skills to my colleagues, explaining that I thought my four years of formal Spanish training in school would have served me better.  Whereupon they started laughing and advised me I had been speaking German to the two soldiers.  Of course, everything made sense at that point, but to this day my brain still thinks I was speaking Spanish.  (I extrapolated the experience some and that is the last time I ever allowed myself to get drunk.  I consider it a bonus on top of the insignia.)

I too have been known to speak (and think) idiot, thanks to my MS; however, the one language that I am totally fluent in, even when I'm sleeping, is MOM! 
 
I seem to know what kids are thinking and what they really want before they do, and I have eyes behind my head which has proven VERY convenient!
 
Hope I was able to provide a little comic relief guys!!!
 
Love you all,

And the late comer is here(ready to be smitten for being late-LOL).
Other than English, I am fluent at Urdu(A language spoken in Pakistan and some regions of India). I also know very much of Hindi(India's Language).
I can also understand Punjabi(Regional language of India and Pakistan) but I cannot speak them too properly.
Amazingly for readers, I can read Arabic (For a very solid reason-Hints available on demand in my shout box) but I cannot understand even a bit of it-Weird, strange but true-LOL

I'm very much fluent in the language called " Oh My Gosh" lolx.. I'm always pretty shocked or i'm always acting shocked? I don't know.. Lolx

but other than that, i am fluent in my home language called Urdu. I know a bit of French since we have French lessons in school. I used to be good at chinese when i was kid, but now, i know just very few words. I know how to read Arabic but won't understand a bit...just like Life/Omar. Then i know very little of Tagalog (Phillipine's lang) cause i have many Phillipino friends. And i know a little Mandarin too, we have lessons of it too.

I have to say, it's Korean, but I'm not very good at it. I only learned Korean for two months, in the embassy of the republic of Korea in Peking. Hope I can be fluent in Korean in future, it's really cute.

WOW all these talented language people!! I feel a little like a dunce; I learned a lot of Italian from my mom and grandparents, and could speak with them when I was a lot younger...My mom made my brother and I learn the days of the week, months of the year, and to count from one to 20 for starters....then my grandparents came to live with us and I learned a lot more...but, alas, not enough to be able to read and write it...I can see a foreign film in Italian and spot any discrepancies in the subtitles, which do pop up once in a while!! (dubious distinction, at best!! LOL)...so I rather envy all you out there who are so fluent,  & I think it's a great thing to know at least one or two other languages besides your own.....more power to ya!!!

Being born and reared in Texas, I am still trying to master the English language.  I studied French in HS & College and I do sign.  My kids and I worked on that as our secret way to communicate across a soccer field. Now I do know enough Spanish to order a margarita.  Honestly, I am embarrassed that I am not more literate, especially after reading the other Blurter’s answers.
