Marathi

That's supposedly my native language. But I end up talking/communicating with people (online, as well as real-life) in English more often than not (90% of the time). So I can't really claim to know my Mother Tongue very well (I know as much as I learned of it in my infancy, I suppose).

Marathi is one of the many, many languages spoken in India. I vote for Asian group of languages.

Me 2 ... i cant remember when I last spoke my native language .. lol .. not that bad actualyl but yes.... me too speaks english 95% of the time and hindi (my native language) only 6% of the time.. (just for kicks)

Now u wud ask how come thats 95% and 6%... am i so dumb ?...

LOL... theres something called "HINGLISH" here.... a mixture of HINDI and ENGLISH.... I speak that 1% of the time...

My native tongue is Dutch and the local dialect.

As you see I can speak, read and write English fluently.

Understand a little bit of hindi ( :whistle: Bollywood films :))

Swedish and English... learned both at the same time. My parents both speak swedish, so we spoke that at home, and English when I went out.

I still speak swedish with my parents at home.... makes for great "secret discussions" in front of everyone else... really cheezes them off! :P

I can understand French, German, and Dutch, though, and I'm thinking of doing graduate studies in Europe... so probably one of those is going to improve in about 2 years...
