I can speak Dutch, English, German and some French, and I can read (with some difficulty of course) other related languages like Italian, Romanian and Danish.

are you all sure that you can read romanian? that language is very hard to pronounce. for instance, difference between front and back schwa (â and ă)

1. They're not schwa's

2. a. The î/â is a close central unrounded vowel [ɨ]

b. The ă is a mid central unrounded vowel [ə]

c. So the only difference between them is the amount of openness of the mouth. There is no difference in forward-backward location of the sound.

and by opening mouth you actually control whether it sounds like front of back (frankly, i don't know how they are called in romanian, i just know the difference and i describe them as i percept them)

Well, we just call them by their sound, ă and î.

Now let's go wiki:

Quote:
In linguistics, specifically phonetics and phonology, schwa (sometimes spelled shwa)[1][2] can mean the following:

* An unstressed and toneless neutral vowel sound in some languages, often but not necessarily a mid-central vowel. Such vowels are often transcribed with the symbol <ə>, regardless of their actual phonetic value.
* The mid-central vowel sound (rounded or unrounded) in the middle of the vowel chart, stressed or unstressed. In IPA phonetic transcription, it is written as [ə]. In this case the term mid-central vowel may be used instead of schwa to avoid ambiguity.
Quote:
The mid central vowel is a type of vowel sound, used in some spoken languages (...) The mid central unrounded vowel is frequently written with the symbol [ə].

* Its vowel height is mid, which means the tongue is positioned halfway between a close vowel and an open vowel.
* Its vowel backness is central, which means the tongue is positioned halfway between a front vowel and a back vowel.
* Its vowel roundedness is unrounded, which means that the lips are not rounded.
Quote:
The close central unrounded vowel is a type of vowel sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is [ɨ].

* Its vowel height is close, which means the tongue is positioned as close as possible to the roof of the mouth without creating a constriction that would be classified as a consonant.
* Its vowel backness is central, which means the tongue is positioned halfway between a front vowel and a back vowel.
* Its vowel roundedness is unrounded, which means that the lips are spread.
As for me, I can speak Romanian, English, some French, and I can read and pronounce correctly most European and Altaic languages that use the Latin/Cyrillic/Greek alphabets. I can also understand spoken Italian and various written Latin languages.

I know German and Russian on basic level.
Until today, I had been pretty certain my English was ( apart of writing ) amazingly good. No understanding or speaking problems, at all. Unfortunately I, focking, watched " trainspotting " with no subtitles, for the first time.
