Basically a newer, more extended version of the European Users thread (No worries, this isn't the replacement, feel free to post there is you wish).

So where are you from? What's your native language? (English? GTFO! (joking of course tongue.gif ) ) what languages can you speak? I'm curious!

Hereś an example:

  • Native Language: Latvian
  • Other spoken languages: Latvian, some Russian, a little Lithuanian
  • Home country: Canada (Ontario)
  • Country of residence: Canada... still Ontario
  • Parents' home country?: Mom is Latvian and Estonian, dad is descended from a German (Prussia) family

Although I live in The Netherlands and have Dutch as my mother tongue, I hardly ever speak the language. I usually find myself in quite the international bubble, where almost everyone speaks English :wub:

Other spoken languages: I speak English and some French. I'm better at English, though. But I'm going to continue with both of them untill I reach a better level. And when that happens with French (and I have forgotten how much trouble it is to learn a new language (which will probably happen pretty quickly)), I'm probably going to start a new language :blush:
