Question of the Day

How many languages do you speak?

The only language in which I am fluent is English (although I seem to have problems typing it), and I speak a very little bit of German and a very little bit of Spanish—just enough of each that I am generally able to converse, if awkwardly, with a German or Spanish speaker who also speaks a very little bit of English, and is willing to charade out the rest.

I also know the alphabet in ASL, which has come in handy on a few occasions.
