This is a post for anybody who is currently learning a foreign language, or knows a foreign language. (Foreign as in a language different than what you grew up speaking) Just put what language(s) you're learning/have learned.

I'm currently learning Latin, I know some Spanish, and I know some Greek (Classical Greek, and just the alphabet. This is my username: ÎÏιοÎ&frac12

Lessee. English, German (to an extent), hoping to get myself together and learn Russian, Faroe..n, Icelandic, Finnish, possible Japanese and Spanish... Since I am not very good at German, I doubt I will be any better at any of the other, though.

Other than my native English, I speak almost fluent Greek (although my reading and writing skills are poor due to the cyrillic alphabet.)

cyrillic alphabet

We don't have a Cyrillic alphabet!
The Greek alphabet is the first and oldest alphabet in the narrow sense that it notes each vowel and consonant with a separate symbol.
The Cyrillic alphabet was based on the Greek uncial script, but it's not Greek!

Time to speak Latin now:
Alea iacta est
Veni, vidi, vici
Senatus Populusque Romanus
etc.
Enough Latin for today.

I have to admit though that I have learned more Latin form reading Asterix than from school.
