considering that 2/3 of both Americans and the British only speak English, can YOU speak another language.
i'm quite proud to be able to say that i can speak:
Spanish (Donde este le perro?)
German (Ich haben das Skillz)
Latin (Memento Sa Angelos De Mori)
Japanese (Konnichiwa! genki des ka?)
English (Bai Jove old chap! it's been years, lets go down to windsor for some tea and crumpets!)
Danium (don't ask, seriously)
and less seriously:
Fluent Leetspeak (\/\/|-|/-\7 |_| |)()|_|71|\| /\/\/-\ 5|<1!!Z?)
Fluent Gibberish (aso kato, nariba! makedanaka, sodi raqeuora)

Well, can you say more than just one sentence in that language?
To be able to SPEAK a language it take a few things more.
I speak German (as it is my native language) and I think my English is not too bad.
I can still understand some Latin (like reading inscriptions in old temples on holidays in Italy and in churches) and, if you give me a little time, I can understand some basics in Italian (most of the time my vacation is over when I get better).
PS: it's very bad German, but if you have to say it...it has to be "Ich habe die Skillz"

Scots (which may as well be a distinct language, in some cases).
Very basic Spanish and Italian.
About 3 or 4 words of Icelandic.
Currently learning Japanese (You need to say "O genki desu ka", by the way) and will probably be learning a few bits of Chinese, seeing as I'm heading there in May (if anyone knows how to say "Hello", "Thank you" and the usual phrases, it'd be most appreciated).
I s'pose you could throw in L337, jive and Jamaican ragga patois as well...

Spanish - but listening to a native speaker gives me a headache - they speak at the speed of light
Korean - I can understand up until some word that I don't know is thrown in, which happens often. I usually have a harder time speaking, too, because I never speak Korean. I always respond in English (the only Korean speakers I talk with are my parents)
I'm interested in learning German and Japanese.
