    I'm fluent in English and beginner in French. I can hold basic conversations/ask questions but not much else. I'm trying to learn it in my free time but I'm either busy or lazy.

    I know Filipino as a native language, and English as a second language.

Then there's the occasional word that's not pronounced the way it's spelled, like "travail" (it sounds like "travile" instead of "travale" like it should).
    Well then that's still pretty good, if you take into consideration that a French three-year old would've been around people speaking French for three years. And I struggle a bit while pronouncing English words, some of them just make no sense to me at all. ^^;; But ah, memorising always is the hard part of a language in my opinion.

    I'll add you in. c: Mm, I find that when I try to learn languages in my free time I just get to lazy to do it. ^^;;

    I'm fluent in English. I've been studying both Irish and French for five years now, and Spanish and German for four. I'm relatively experienced in Irish, French and Spanish, and could probably function talking those languages if I needed to, but my German is a bit less advanced than I would like. You could put me down as experienced (or something similar, if you're going to include that sort of rank in your "key" ;p) for Irish, French and Spanish, and moderate for German, I guess.

    I'd really like to learn Latin and Japanese someday. They both seem like really interesting languages. Perhaps when I have more free time in the future I could consider attempting to teach myself.

    I don't wanna sound like a douche, but I forgot to mention that in addition to French, I have attempted to learn 6 other languages. Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Japanese. Out of all this effort, I have little to show for it. I can read Cyrillic Script and Hiragana and Katakana. That's about it.

    I kinda had a language obsession when I was around 15.

    I'll add you in now. c: Wow, Russian?! That's amazing! :o I've always seen Russian as such a complicated language, do you find it complicated?
    It's certainly different from English, but since I haven't attempted learning any other languages, I can't really compare it to anything else. After the alphabet is memorized and stuck, it's actually quite easy considering the cognates. :)

    When my mom learned Russian she never liked the cases.

    I'm a native English speaker. I'd call myself intermediate in Spanish, and I have some conversational proficiency. I guess I'd also be intermediate in Japanese.

    I'm a native speaker of English. I'm also a beginner in Japanese; I've been studying on my own time for almost five years, but without a "proper" method of study, progress has been agonizingly slow. I've fully memorized Hiragana and Katakana, I've learned a few words over the years, and I'm primarily working on sentence structure as of this post.

    I just added you in. c: Well, I suppose it must be hard if you're doing it on-and-off, right? But ah, do you find structuring sentences hard or easy? I've always found it complicated with most languages. :c

    Considering my situation, I guess it's a little on the hard side. I don't have what I feel is a reliable reference for particles and stuff like that.

    Hm? A reference for particles? What do you mean?

    Wow, Greek huh? That's a pretty language, if a language can be defined as "pretty". How long have you been learning it?
