I speak Danish most of the time. But German is the language I speak best as I was born and grew up in Germany.

Speak Dutch and a couple of other European languages. Understand Afrikaans very well. For me the most colourful language on earth :D :D

I speak mostly Afrikaans since we come from "Die Vry-Staat!", but here in Cape Town everyone speaks English so now we speak English more often.

Afrikaans and English equally. Understand Dutch and German very well, so don't try gossiping in any of those languages when I'm near! :D
