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

Native language: English(walks over to door and then realizes you were joking)

other languages: Learning a few languages not fluent in them through..

Home country: United states

country of residence: United states

Home country of parents: Umm....I don´t know?

I'm ashamed to admit it, but okay.

 

Native Language: probably Polish? I guess I should count German, too, but since I forgot how to speak German... *sigh*

 

Other spoken languages: English, and a bit of Finnish and Swedish (not used in ages).

 

Home country: well, I'm the 2nd generation born abroad, so... Poland?

 

Country of residence: Poland again. *sigh*

 

Parents' home country?: they were first ones that weren't born in Germany.

 

it's just so twisted.
