I just don't really feel like learning those Scandinavian languages. The countries are awesome and beautiful but it's not worth it IMO. I speak 4 languages fluently atm. I'm still learning French and Italian. Not bad for a 17 year old huh

Actually, you can speak english to people from denmark, norway or sweden. In some countries, people do speak english, but don't want to because they think their national pride is being hurt.

I know that Scandinavian people speak English quite well. You have to know that I'm not an American though

Yup. I'm a foreign Exchange Student in the USA if you're wondering why I'm living here. I'll be going back in may and I'm probably going to study in Germany

I speak Dutch, English and German, and I can read French and Spanish, and a bit of Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Portuguese and Italian. I know a few words in Polish and Romanian, but that's about it. Romanian is actually not that hard if you know some other Roman languages like French. I can also read the Greek and Cyrillic alphabet (from the age of 12, had nothing to do at school, so I decided to decipher Russian maps, that how I learned it).

No, my location is the location where I actually am. If people are interested in what nationality I have they should take a look at my profile

I envy you guys when you just happened to understand other languages f.ex neighbouring countries etc...
Like scandinavians.
When you come from a country as Hungary, you have to study other languages otherwise you are on your own.

I speak Swedish, Maghreb Arabic, English and French fluently, I speak Spanish and German with quite well, although not fluently. I can understand some Italian, Portuguese, Catalan and Romanian (Romance languages) in both writing and speech. I can communicate with Danes and Norwegians in writing, but I can only speak with Norwegians because I really don't get what Danes are saying.

Well, to join in the conversation, I know English, Hebrew, and Russian fluently and am currently studying Chinese at university. I also know some French because I learned it for about 2 years when I came to Canada.

When reading, I can understand Slavonic languages to varying degrees. I also learned the Arabic script in my final year in Israel, but I moved to Canada before we finished and I don't remember much at this point.

I passed a reservoir today that supplies water to New York City & Jersey City, its 118 miles Northwest of Midtown NYC.
