I speak fluent Finnish and basic Swedish and Estonian. I can also write decent English, but I don't get much practise in speaking it.
I understand enough German that I can read the Manufactum Warenkatalog and know what they are talking about. But German is easier to understand than to produce, and my own German is very poor.
Between Latin, English and context, I can usually also figure out written French surprisingly well, considering that spoken French is unintelligible to me.
Dutch, English, German and a little Italian.
5 - English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish. But I want to learn German and French...
English and Afrikaans. Can say a few phrases in Chinese
I talk 'Merican purty good...
What seein' hows I growed up in Arkansas and all...
English, conversational spanish, I took Japanese years ago but remember about 7 words, and for the most obscure also took biblical Greek.
English and French. Part of my university degree was French, but to be honest, I read and write it much better than I can converse in it.
I can have a conversation in Spanish, and understand a lot of Italian.
Actually had 3 years of both Spanish and Italian but since I haven't really used it. My abilities have deterioated significantly!
1.8, but comprised of 3 languages
Parum dico, Hispanica. Et ego loquemur Latine . Numquid alius scit loquerisne Latine?
Well, I speak one... One Zero One Zero Zero. With that I could steal your money, your secrets, your sexual fantasies, your whole life. Any country, any place, any time I want. We multitask like you breathe. I couldn't think as slow as you if I tried.
Sorry, couldn't resist. While the movie was full of bad awful science, it had a lot of great memorable quotes.
Same here, Afrikaans, English, Dutch and Zulu

I know a few zulu words but cant converse at all
English (just a little)
I learned German more than 20 years ago, but cannot remember. The only thing I remember about German is "Ich liebe dich".
Only German i remember is...
Ich weiss nicht.
I don't know.
Spanish and english
I was fairly fluent in French and Spanish when I graduated from college in 1965. No longer.
Speaking of languages brings to mind this oldie:
Terminology and nomenclature, argot and cant, jargon and lingo can be confusing. One reason the military has trouble coordinating joint operations is that the different services don't speak the same language.
For example, if Navy personnel were told to "secure a building", they would, following a checklist written on a clipboard, unplug the equipment, turn off the lights, lock the doors, and depart.
Given the same instructions, Army personnel would follow a checklist written in a notebook. They would occupy the building, so that no one could enter, and nothing could leave.
In execution of the same instructions, and following a plan written on the palm of their hands, Marines would assault the building, capture it by close combat, and defend it with suppressive fire.
The Air Force, on the other hand, following a protocol printed on a portable computer, would "secure a building" by taking out a three-year lease on it, with an option to buy.
