No. I've learned French and taken a class of Spanish. And watched a lot of bio shows so I can probably follow along better than the average bear, but that's about it.

I took latin for two years but forgot it after the 1st. I really dont remember anything except my teacher saying "ere" (aire) over and over.

No, I took Spanish in middle school and French in high school. I'm not really sure you can say that I learned those either, though.

Latin seems to come up somewhat regularly in crossword puzzles though, which sort of makes me wish I had taken it. Although then I'd probably miss the French clues...

no I wish, it seems helpful to know. I took Spanish also in school and I started a french club like a year and a half ago. :) It grew to over 100 members and I had to give ownership up but still *proud*. I have to start practicing again. :rainbowsmile:

Nope. I know a small amount of French and an even smaller amount of Bengali and that's it.

Nope; I did a bit if Spanish, German and an obscure language called French at school but have forgotten almost all of it.

Since I watch lots of subtitled films/TV I've picked up a few words of various languages but not much that would be useful beyond saying 'hello', 'thank you' or 'sorry'.
