    I'm 22 and it seems not many people my age speak anything but English (and some don't even speak that very well). If you do know another language, which is it? I'm almost fluent in Spanish.

    Mally B and friends,

    Was geht? Aber ja, ich spreche Deutch gern. Beim Uni habe ich Deutchklasse zweimal in einer Woche.

    Maybe someday I'll get a job working for Glock or Sig or HK or some other German-speaking owned company. Sweeeet.

    I used to know some American sign language, but I've forgot most of it.

    Ja, ich auch. I've taken about 7 years of German but my last class was over 7 years ago. Nevertheless, I understand a lot.

    I had three years of Spanish in high school, needless to say I don't remember a lick. My wife IS getting me back into the swing, enough that I can order my meal in Spanish when we go to our favorite mexican cantina!

    (She was born in Venezuela, thus is fluent in Spanish - and they lived in Prague for 10 years, so she speaks Czech as well).

    Ich kann auch ziemlich gut deutsch, aber hier in Bayern gibt's mir Schwerigkeit; ich kann nur hochdeutsch, nicht bayerisch! ;P

    I've also had two years each of Spanish and Russian, but I don't do too well in those....oh well. ;Q
