    Wow, impressive!

    I can speak English (obviously), Spanish (probably my favorite language lol) and a little Enochian.

    I plan to learn Italian as well:)

    To what extent? By really speak very well my count is two (Dutch and English) but if you also count languages I semi-speak or can read or whatever it's about six (it's not an exact number, because for some languages it means I can also read related materials without necessarily being able to speak them).

    For example, I have some knowledge of Swedish, which means I can read and understand a fair amount of Norwegian (and Danish somewhat less), but if I want to speak Norwegian, then I have to actually speak Norwegian (now I would adapt my Swedish to sound "more Norwegian", which is not the same thing). Now my Swedish is far from perfect, so it's actually not a good example (if you ask a Swedish native speaker they will obviously get a lot more from it than I do).

    But if you mean languages I will speak off-the-cuff, with mistakes, then I will say six is the answer (Dutch, English, German, French, Russian, and Swedish). If someone writes to me in any of these languages I will respond in the same language.

    (By the way, the title translates to "doubt" in English.)

    I just used GT for that, sorry to disappoint:(

    Just a question, how many languages can you speak?

    It's not as much a poem as it is a verse from a song by Lars Winnerbäck called "Tvivel". Did you use GT to figure it out, or do you speak Swedish? In the latter case I don't have to translate the title :)

    And it is lovely, but it is less lovely that I know the feeling he describes.

    I must say, I found the poem in your signature to be quite lovely.

    Just a question, is your sig a reference to Harry Potter?
