    English, and a little bit of Finnish, and a little bit of Swedish. I feel more comfortable with Swedish (of the Finlandssvensk variety) even though I've taken more classes in Finnnish.

    Oh yeah, and Latin, as if that's of any use.

    English, Spanish and Latin.

    Sort of related, I read, understand and can play music, read and use schematics, and can send and receive Morse Code.

    If you want to include jargon, then legal, accounting, electronics, construction, and computers.

    Norwegian (Fluent), English (very good).
    ...and can make myself more or less understood in German, Swedish and Danish.

    English, although not according to my British friends

    I can get by in French, I had 5 years in school but that was 30 years ago. I've taken 4 trips to French speaking parts of Europe and managed. When watching French movies, I sometimes stop reading the subtitles, but quickly need to read again.

    A very little, ASL (American Sign Language) or really Signed English. My wife is hard of hearing, although mostly oral. I have been to parties where I was the only hearing person and I've been to 2 Gualludet University homecomings.

    Spanish would be the handiest language to learn since you run into native Spanish speakers every day here in DC

    English, German, Spanish (only enough to get by with patients), and Latin (hope the Roman patients don't show!).

    English, Bad English, took sign language for a couple years, and a little Spanish hardly enough to count though.

    Nope, born and raised in the USA. My parents and grandparents are from Macau. My grandparents don't speak or understand English, so I need to speak to them in Cantonese.
