  • Native Language: US English

Other spoken languages: German, more or less fluently

Home country: USA

Parents' home country?: um... USA. Mom is half German, half Lithuanian, Dad's a mutt.

Looking at this, I realize how sad it is that I hate stereotypical Americans and often complain about American-ness.

  • Native Language: Italian

Other spoken languages: English, French, Spanish. I know a few words/simple phrases in a number of other languages (e.g. Japanese) and can read a handful of those similar to those I can speak (e.g. Portuguese and Latin) but definitely not enough to actually hold a conversation.

Home country: Italy (Rome)

Country of residence: Italy (Rome) (this WILL change soon, hopefully next year <_<)

Parents' home country?: Both were born in Rome. I have relatives scattered here and there in the country, but they're still all Italian.

NinjaRobot

Native Language: English
Other spoken languages: Bad German, due to German relatives and learning it in high school.
Home country: Australia
Country of residence: Australia, I've lived in the same house my whole life.
Parents' home country: Both are Aussies, but my dad's parents moved here from Germany, and he and his brother spoke German around the house, but stopped speaking it due to being teased or thinking it was lame or something, so he doesn't remember it anymore. Which is really sad, because I would have loved to grow up being bilingual! D:
