I know English and a little bit of Italian since that's what we learnt in primary school. Sono stanco!

I'm fluent in English, about intermediate in Tagalog, and almost intermediate in Chinese (HSK2).

I picked up Hokkien and Bisaya from my grandparents, but I can't speak them properly

Am currently self-learning Japanese and German out of boredom

Apart from your native language what others do you know? or are you learning any new ones?
------------------------------------------------
Native: English

Secondary: Spanish-intermediate level, still taking courses on my local college and talking to friends abroad on the phone.
At a level I can basically talk about anything, although I make grammatical mistakes and have a pretty limited vocabulary. I understand it way better than I can speak it.

Eventually, I want to learn Italian and Japanese, but learning one language at a time is more than enough.

That sounds very Italian. You at least got the cultural part down pretty well.

Well my birth tongue is English and I started slowly learning Spanish any time after the age of 6 from local Caribbean tv and hearing choirs sing. It got taught formally in school from 11. I went all the way to uni with it.

I also know a little French because it was taught in school along side the Spanish. Then I picked up some Italian from being around a close friend who speaks it and meeting other Italians. I got a touristy grasp of a little German when I went there. If I'm going to be visiting places that don't speak English I'll most likely attempt to learn the local language.

you can learn a new language for free, you just need motivation to do so.
plenty of resources online to learn the language you want.

I speak English native.

I can understand a "decent" amount of Spanish since I took 3 years in high school. I wouldn't mind learning to speak better Spanish, but I wouldn't have a use for it right now.

I took one semester of Japanese, which has proved helpful since my roommate is Japanese, I can get the rough idea of what's being said, but not much more.

I need to learn Italian, I live in Italy right now, it's kinda embarrassing being so useless at Italian, but this came up out of the blue, so I didn't have time to study.

The funny thing I noticed is that I speak like 2 dialects of English now, if I speak my native Californian style English in Europe, no one really understands what I'm saying. I end up pronouncing, phrasing, and speaking fairly differently in Europe, which I thought was pretty cool.

No. [I wish I had enough patience to do that ;_; ]
