I speak English, Spanish, and Latin. I have been working on Japanese for origami purposes.
Ouch! Are you okay? Well...let's see.. advanced box-pleating techniques, Satoshi Kamiya, yeah I'm good. If you fall down nine times get up ten times.

I took Japanese for my foreign language requirement in highschool, but didn't do all that gret(only got a C in Japanese 2 on a second attempt), but it's still the closest I've come to breaking out of the monolingual minority(a fact, that unlike most Americans, I'm properly ashamed of).

I've also had a semester of German at a University, but that went even worse than my attempts at learning Japanese.
Just so you know, I'm blind.

Like lots of other people here, I've been teaching myself Japanese for origami purposes. It's been going fairly well, but remembering vocabulary is really hard for me.

I've been thinking of giving myself a basic understanding of how Asian languages and work, and mainly Japanese (no reason, just... youknow... :P)

kirakinn, what are you using to teach yourself? I haven't been able to find anything besides an old broken CD at a thrift shop. Is it online?

In general, I like the Pimsleur Courses for Languages on CD, which I can usually find in the local library.

I speak three - English, Telugu and Hindi. Telugu is my mother tongue, Hindi is the most widely spoken language in India and it is essential to learn it, and I guess I don't need to say about English :B
