What languages can you speak?
 
I've pretty much always been interested in language and linguistics however I'm pretty useless at actually learning languages... It's learning all the vocabulary that stumps me...

In this thread, simply post which languages you speak and an example sentence from them. You can't include English. I'll go first:

Welsh:

Mi gysgodd y ceffyl yn ei wely neithiwr.
The horse slept in its bed last night.

French:

Où est l'homme qui salissait mes oignons?
Where is the man who soiled my onions?

Je ne parle rien du français. Mais, chaque jour, j'apprends.
I do not speak any French. But, every day, I'm learning.

El que inventó la hamburguesa és un campeón!

Jedenfalls, ich bin Pommes frites. Ou talvez eu seja doce de leite.

Lladd dafad ddall (kill a blind sheep) (SPOILER for welsh grammar) Yes I know mutations don't work that way but it wouldn't be a palindrome otherwise

And Sangfroidish's constant shitposting in my PM inbox somehow got me to start learning Japanese. A good a reason as any, I suppose. I've gone to a fair few lessons and am slowly learning more kanji, though I think I should try to focus more on grammar at some point since I still can't form many sentences.

Halveringstid: Fulla livskonsekvenser!

Det är en bra dag för att göra vad som måste göras av mig och hjälpa min bror besegra fienderna.

John Freeman sa "Zombie-spöken, åk härifrån!" och zombie-spökena sa "Men det här är vårt hus!" och John Freeman tyckte synd om dem eftersom de inte kunde bo där längre eftersom de var zombie-spöken så han sprängde huset och dödade zombie-spökena så att de kunde vila i frid.

John Stalvern esperó. Las luces sobre el parpadeaban y chispeaban sobre el aire. Había demonios en la base.

Él no los podía ver, pero los había esperado por años. Sus advertencias hacia Cernel Joson no fueron escuchadas y ahora era demasiado tarde, demasiado tarde para hoy, de todas maneras

John había sido un marine espacial por catorce años. Cuando él era joven veía las naves espaciales y le decía a su padre “yo quiero estar en una de esas naves papi”

Papa dijo “¡NO, vas a ser muerto por demonios!”

Hubo un tiempo en el que le creyó. Pero cuando se volvió mayorcete se detuvo. Pero ahora en la estación espacial base de la UAC el sabia donde estaban los demonios.

“eso es Joson” agrietoro la radio. “¡tú debes enfrentar a los demonios!”

Entonces John obtuvo su rifle de plasma y voló la pared.

“¡Él va a matarnos!” dijeron los demonios “yo le disparare” dijo el Cyber-demonio y disparo un cohete John plasmeo hacia él e intento reventarlo. Pero cuando el techo cayó, ellos quedaron atrapado e incapaces de matar.

“¡NO! Yo debo matar a los demonios” el grito La radio dijo “no John, tu eres los demonios”

Y entonces John era un zombi.

日本語がちょっとだけ話せるから、この文をなおさなければいけないでしょう。
I can only speak a little Japanese, so this sentence probably needs to be corrected.

I can also understand basic spoken Mandarin, but I can't read or write it and my pronunciation is terrible so I don't think that counts.

Äidinkieleni on suomi. (My native language is Finnish.)

I'm also near native level in English.

I also know the bare basics of Swedish, Spanish, German, Russian and Japanese (can't read the symbols yet, but romaji i.e. the Latin letter variety is a piece of cake).

I can speak English, fluent American Sign language and I can possibly hold a conversation in French? Other than that, that's it though.

(I'll get my Japanese minor when next semester finishes. I intend to try playing Pokemon Moon in Japanese, but I'll have to use a dictionary a lot.)
