I'm bilingual, and I'm fluent in Chinese and English.

Only one--English. I have tried to learn others but do not seem to have a knack for it. I can read a few, but not fluently.

English and only English. Never had the need to learn another so far. Well, unless we talk numbers & I can do 1-10 in spanish and a couple others, forgot a little of it though. Had to learn in P.E. in elementary school.

Four languages. One is very basic, one is fairly basic, and only two are fluent. A fifth language - three years of high-school French - doesn't count. I don't even remember how to say "The airport is to the left."

Immersion is the key.

I can only speak one fluently. I could probably get by in Italy or Spain though on a short vacation.

English is my second language and is not nearly as good as my native one.

Unfortunately, only English. I know a little bit of French from high school, and I've made attempts at learning Japanese, but I only know little bits of both. Not enough to really hold a conversation in either.

Only English, though I'd like to learn Spanish. I took it for two years in high school but not enough to hold a good conversation with someone.

Only one right now, but I'm slowly trying to learn Japanese, Sindarin (and the writing system, Tengwar), and Irish.
It's slow going and I'm thinking I'd do better by focusing on one for a while and sort of learn in shifts than I am by trying to cram them all in at once.

I took Spanish in both high school and middle school, but I don't remember much of it anymore so I may try and work that into the schedule.
I also have plans on adding in German and French if things go well enough.

It's an almost entirely impossible goal of mine, but I'd love to learn literally every language it's possible to learn. xD
