My 'mother tongue' is English

I have a modicum of French (rather rusty) and a smattering of German (you know, 'ein bier', 'zwei bier', etc.).

I know about four expressions in Japanese (one of which is, apparently, unrepeatable - so I won't)

Usually I just talk pure Gibberish

Poor Frisian, it doesn't even have a ranking. :lol: Not that I can really speak it, can only understand it.

My first language is English, I learnt to speak Dutch when I was 10. I used to be able to speak quite a bit of French and German, but I am very much out of practise. I can understand Afrikaans, but also can't speak it.

Of course I can order beer in almost every language. :wink:

My boss is German and when you get into his car he always says furze nicht in auto and opens the windows. I suppose he likes fresh air and wishes he had a soft top.
