The only language that I can write well apart from my native one (Finnish) is Latin English.

I have to say I'm happy about having good English skills.

--------------------
Hungarian is my native language, so it's natural that I can write fast, complex sentences in Hungarian, I also think my vocabulary is pretty nice, since I read quite a lot.
English, well...sometimes I make some HUGE errors, but I'm satisfied with it in general. Not only because it's 1000x better than my classmates/age group, I even learned English pretty much "alone" (well, if we don't count internet friends). I've only learned English from forums/chat. I remember, when I started to read SMW hacking tutorials in January 2008, I had almost no idea, what's going on, but slowly I found out, what does it want to say.
I can also write German (I learn it about 11 years ago in school, but honestly I don't really like it, at least not as much as English), but a lot of slower and with possibly more mistakes. The strict arrangement of the sentences and more complex grammar annoys me a bit, that's why I like English better, probably.
Norwegian: Write 93%, read 100%.
Swedish: Write 20%, read 90%.
Danish: Write 10%, read 70%.
English: Write 75%, read 95%.

pretty much

edit: a typo
I can read/write and speak English and Spanish fluently. I grew up in a bilingual home. I can somewhat write German but I can't understand it if spoken. French and Italian I can understand if spoken because they're based off Latin but I can't write it very well.

OBV1OUSLY 4LT3RN14N 1S MY F1RST L4NGU4G3 BUT 1 TH1NK 1 DO PR3TTY W3LL W1TH YOUR HUM4N 3NGL1SH, R1GHT?

(Some in-character stuff about speaking Alternian. In all seriousness I can only speak English, and have practically zero linguistic skill anywhere else)
I'm English, but I can also speak Spanish (fluently) Latin and French.
My first language is french, being obviously French myself, but I think I can write and understant English pretty well, but if it comes to speaking... ergh. Asides from that, I know a very little bit of Spanish, and that's all.

So, to summarize :
French- Obviously great.
English- Somehow good.
Spanish- Bad.
Other- Shitty.

(besides I think I can help people here with french somehow, so..)
I'm surprised more people than I thought know French. Cool.

I can read and write English, but when I write I often make grammar mistakes, and that makes me mad. I've learned Spanish too, but it makes 1 year I haven't practised, so I surely suck at it.

Thank you very much, asshat.
I speak level 2 high school Spanish. As you can probably guess, I'm not very fluent. Our teacher told us that knowing level 3 Spanish is something that looks good on a resume or college application, which sucks because I want to take Greek/Italian 1 next year.

Just to give you an idea of how bad my spanish is, here is the above paragraph en Espanol (no accentos porque soy perezoso):

Hablo nivel dos Espanol de escuela secundaria. Lo que es facil adivinar, no soy fluido. Nuestras maestra dice que saber nivel tres Espanol es algo que ve bien en curriculum vitae o aplicacion de universidad. Apesta porque quiero tomar Griego/Italiano uno el ano (LOL ANUS) proximo.

Esto es molesto porquĆ© quiero tomar Griego/Italiano uno el proximo aƱo (LOL ANUS)


Fixed.

Yeah, you should realy improve your spanish skills, but don't worry, I understand it's hard to learn a new language, specialy because the gramar is a bit different.
Ā 
spanish is my first language

spanish is based on latin which means I can understand about 2 words out of 7

ditto for other latin based languages though I'm better at italian

i good at very english
I can write in and speak Spanish to some degree (about the same level as Suns, above), but that's about it. English has always been my primary language.

I'm probably retired tbh
1st - Dutch: More then perfect, I just fail to see how people can score so low in our country on their own language. >_<
2nd - English: Same as above.
3rd - German: Meh-ish I'm not that good at it but I could find my way around.
4th - French: I'd commit suicide if I got lost in France, I mean, the bastards refuse to even speak a single word of English.
5th - Italian: I can speak a bit of Italian, although, it's not realyl writing or speaking, it's really just understanding, and a bit of speaking... Yeah...

Well, English is my native language so I can speak it rather well and properly if I'm not being lazy.

My second language is Latin which I can speak/read/write fluently. Pretty easy to do considering it's a dead language.

Japanese is my third language. I can read and understand it just fine however my grammar is off, but I can write and speak it to an understandable level.

Spanish is my forth, I know enough to barely get by if speaking with another but it really is my weakest language. My grammar in Spanish is simply horrid however.

Well, Portuguese is my first language, and I speak and write it pretty great! I do make some grammar mistakes while writing though, and sometimes I find my language to be very annoying because it has tons of little rules everywhere. Mostly I speak Portuguese coloquially, but I can speak it correctly when I want.

As for English, I think mine's pretty good too! I mostly visit North American sites when using the computer, so I've grown used to it. I tend to speak to myself in English sometimes, and in one ocassion I've caught myself thinking in English. Heheheh.

Pretty much all members of my family are German descendants and most of them can speak German really well, but I... can't. Not even a bit.

I have interest in learning Japanese, too. My parents say that if I'm going to learn an oriental language, I should learn Chinese, but I'm... just really interested in Japanese for some reason!

I'm speaking a lot here, but I just gotta say something about Spanish: most of my friends find it weird that I speak English better than Spanish because, in their opinion, Spanish is really similar to Portuguese, but I just don't understand how they can say that. Spanish is hard for me! #w{=P}
Well I'm in a Spanish class since it's required, so I can read/write some, though I mess up with accents and stuff like that. As for Japanese, I can recognize all basic Hiragana (not the ones that us " or the combination ones) and very few words (like hana=flower). I'll be learning Katakana soon, and then I'll be learning kanji while I try and pick up other words and phrases. And I'm a native english speaker (though for some reason there's still a need to be tought how to properly use it).

--------------------
I've realized this was outdated.
First language is Spanish. I speak and write it well, but because I know more than 1 language, I sometimes have trouble.

Second language is English. I speak this language to near perfection beecause it's the language I'm pretty much forced to use all the time.

Third language is Italian. I can't speak or write Italian for beans, but when people speak it, I can understand 75% of what they're saying.
