    I'm just curious; what different languages do all you people speak? Also; is English your first? Second? Third? :p

    I speak Russian; and English is my second language. Currently learning Spanish; and after that; I wish to learn Latin and Japanese.

    hehehe smokie! Doesn't everybody speak profane? I know almost all of the curse words in Spanish! My wife throws them at me and then I have to look them up (she's spanish) in my trusty spanish dictionary. I bet this doesn't count as a second language but it is close!!
