btw J-Roc; I thought you said you were a monolinguist.... hahaha, could have fooled me (and you probably do ; )

and to add to your list:
Ik begrijp het
Uh...Hola, por favor? :)

Yes, fooled you have been...to a certain extent.
I know a bit of french because we're forced to learn it in school in Canada.
I know a bit of Spanish because I have several friends from Latin countries.  (3 from Venezuela, 2 from Peru, 2 from Mexico, 1 from Argentina)  Most of what I know with that is the swear words. :D
I know a bit of German because I lived on a Canadian Military base in Germany for three years.  (no, I'm not fluent because I was young and too stupid to take the opportunity to learn it)  I was functional with my German, but it's been over ten years since I've had to use it. :P

English is the only language I can communicate in...and even that can be questioned. :D

Strange, they say the younger you are when you come into contact with a foreign language, the better you will learn it. That must be why I know English so well, since I came into contact with it at a very young age (went to America with my parents, or so they say.). 8)

The age thing only demonstrated my immaturity and unwillingness to learn it.

One of the key reasons I didn't learn German that well was because of my exposure to it.  Sure, I was completely surrounded by it, but all my friends were other Canadian military brats.  I went to an English school.  Most of my time was spent at military housing or installations, and not submersed with the Germans.

So, basically, all the German I learned was just to be functional.  I could go out and buy stuff...but that's about it.

I'm 'functional' in French and German, fluent in Flemish and English, moderate in Dutch. ;D

Ofcourse, as long as they stay in their own country, there's no problem with that. ;)
