    Ethnic group
    Armenian {South Caucasian}
    Country: Canada



    Which languages can you correctly pronounce?
    I can pronounce Armenian, English, Albanian, Greek, Portuguese, German, Russian with virtually no accent.

    Which languages do you understand?
    For me: Armenian, English, German (little bit), Russian (little bit).

    I used to speak perfect German. When I was a child, I lived in Germany for 7 years. This shaped the rest of my life its direction. Germany made it possible for me to develop multilingualism and skills to master more languages.

    In Armenia, I studied Russian, but was not good at it (grammar and vocabulary), so I never really learned to speak and colloquialize in this language, but I can read and write, as well as understand a little bit.

    I also understand a little bit of Albanian.

    Which languages do you speak fluently or at a native speaker's level?
    For me: Only Armenian and English.

    I think there is already a thread exactly like this one. Please make an effort to find existing threads before creating duplicates.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    Ich kann deutsch sprechen aber ich hab nicht deutsch in sehr lang gesprochen. Ich hab viel Grammatik vergessen, aber ich kann deutsch immer noch verstehen. Now in English I can speak german, but I have not spoken German in a very long time, and need to start practicing it again. I can also speak Turkish, and English. My accent in German is pretty good, but i speak a little bit "kanaken deutsch" as they say, but I can also speak proper hochdeutsch. I think the accent changes depending if I am speaking with other people in Germany who use the slang accent also known as kanaken Deutsch even though I REALLY DONT LIKE THAT TERM. If I see just a normal German I can speak hoch. As for my Turkish it is just normal Turkish.

    It depends who you are talking to, in Europe many people learn more than one due to job related, culture related reasons.

    How extraordinary that somebody from Belarus can speak Lithuanian. Usually it is only Lithuanians who speak Lithuanian ... Unless of course you have some relation to Lithuania

    My biggest ambition is to be able to recognise Han characters...

    I can correctly pronounce English, Spanish, Russian, and some French. I can understand English and Spanish at the conversational level, and have limited facility with Russian. I unfortunately only speak English with fluency, but at one point I was nearly fluent in Spanish and I still have a good functional command of it. I'm studying Russian right now and absolutely loving it, even though it is somewhat challenging.

    English and German fluently. (Also, a conlang with vocabulary taken from Latvian, Welsh, and Egyptian, but I'm not sure anyone will think that counts.)
