    I speak English fluently and can speak a bit of Maori although knowing a bit of German might be useful, I don't know any.

    Iglay Atinpay, 1337 and a little Latin (can recognise certain words).

    Still mastering, how you say, English.

    Solely English. Have absolutely no aptitude for languages at all.

    Know some French and Spanish from school but that's about it really apart from English. Can understand the different Caribbean speak too since they're languages in their own right and similar.

    Dutch of course, then pretty fluent in English, passable control of German, laughably inept yet considered conversant by polite people in French, rudimentary knowledge of Latin, and able to order two beers in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Croat and Czech.
